Ahh… It’s that time of year again. People are in a foul mood, walk like zombies, and are constantly distracted… FINALS! So far, however, I am surviving. My trick? Be that one kid everyone hates in class who starts working on everything in advance. I constantly email teachers my questions early on and make sure I know what will be on each final. Unfortunately this go-around, I have finals combined with projects. Despite the fact that most of them are quite easy, I’m finding it a bit challenging to have time to do quality work. Which brings me to my next tip: Do what you can, no matter how little it is, when you can. Every little bit adds up. My next tip? I hesitate to admit it, but in the classes where the instructor doesn’t really know me, I am the annoying brown noser. This pays off in the end, I promise.
The important thing to remember is to take each project or assignment a little bit at a time. Don’t wait till the last last minute and get plenty of rest and/or caffeine. 🙂
