Default Week of Finals

It's my first year in high school and I have finals this week and never have I ever been more stressed. Math and Science finals on Wednesday so I'm stressing out a bit.

Any tips?

Boy I'm so excited it's the last week of school for me!

You will learn to embrace finals after taking AP exams (if your school has AP).

Just rest up, eat a good breakfast, and don't panic.

If you have to cram, cram with small breaks in between because that usually helps me when I'm studying for exams.

Find out what areas of those subjects your teacher is going to have on the final. Some teachers will have a cumulative one (which really sucks unless you've understood a good load of the information from the year/semester), others will have it on a certain chunk (which is nice since it narrows down what to study for).

Budget and plan your time wisely until those heavy-hitting finals arrive. Make sure you study enough so that you are comfortable with answering questions on it. It helps to have a small study group to study with; quiz each other with questions, ask help from smarter classmates, trade notes and insights.


First year high school? Shouldn't be too difficult unless you're struggling in your classes. And as Kait as said, if you take AP Exams, you'll love finals week since it's just so much easier. So much easier.

Yeah, I had 5 classes, all of them being APs, so during finals week, I actually don't have to do anything, since most AP classes will take their finals during May. Actually, for the past 3 weeks, I haven't done anything in any of my classes. I mean... besides watch the FIFA world cup, movies, talk, and... I suppose projects? But I just finished my last one.... so Yeah. Pretty much done with school.

As for your first year in high school... finals might seem really stressing, the whole "This test will be worth 2 test grades or a % of your overall grade or maybe even your entire grade" but really, as long as you do well in the class throughout the year, it isn't that bad. Normally, the grade you get on the final is respective to how much you study for that class, as well as the letter grade you're currently getting in the class atm.

I found cramming to not really work (Although I did it a LOT my senior year...)... it's more dependent upon your dedication throughout the coursework of the entire school year. Just, try to recognize what topics your teacher seems to put more emphasis on, and kind of review them.

But always remember to get a good night's sleep (At least an extra 1.5 hours of your normal sleeping time) and have a healthy breakfast. As long as you don't stick to anything out of the ordinary, you should be fine

I have my final GCSE exams this week too >; they'd just recommend you to make lots of revision notes, and write about stuff you don't know much in red, because it's somehow supposed to trigger ''danger'' in your brain, making you remember it better o3o

Oh and a nice breakfast (they're giving away free breakfast here)~

Depending if you're allowed to or not, use the last few minutes (like, right before you get your exam) to try and cram as many small facts/tidbits/formulas or whatever, then as soon as you get the test or paper or something, write them down in the margins. That way if you have a reference list to look back on. And you didn't cheat because you knew the information when you got the test. It's simply so you don't forget if it doesn't come up until the last half of the exam.
