Midterms are quickly approaching here at New Milford High School and it’s almost time to break out the study guides and textbooks. Here are some tips to make sure you’re prepared for the week.1382316218xb6h7– Don’t Procrastinate: No one can deny it. Everybody does it, especially in high school. But when it comes to midterms, you can’t. Don’t wait until the day before and stay up into the early hours of the morning cramming. Cramming only leads to low self esteem, exhaustion, and bad test grades. Being prepared gives you confidence so you can feel better the day of your exam.

 

-Find a Place to Study: Find a place where you’re most comfortable to study. Make sure it’s quiet and free of distractions.

 

-Create a Study Schedule: Between work, sports, and other distractions studying is sometimes hard to fit in. So make a study schedule and stick to it. Write it down so it’s official and follow it.

– Join a Study Group: This one isn’t for everyone but it’s worth a try if you feel you’re struggling. Sometimes being with others can reduce the pressure and make you relax. But be sure to stay focused because sometimes being with others can distract you. Other people can show you new studying techniques, clear up a concept you’re confused with, etc.

 

– Stay Away From Distractions: iPhones, Netflix, Twitter. Those are just a select few of the endless distractions that there are nowadays. Be sure to stay away from all of that while studying because just taking a break can turn into watching 5 hours of Gossip Girl. Believe me, I know.

– Listen To Relaxing Music: Listening to classical or jazz music can help calm down some people and let them relax while studying for the big test. But stay away from listening to music with lyrics, they just act as another distraction.

 

– Get Enough Sleep: Reports say that adolescents should get at least 10 hours of sleep a night. That’s especially important on days before an exam. So is having breakfast to kick start your day.

 

-Chew Gum: Here’s one that’s different but some people say it’s effective. Chew the same gum while you’re studying and while you’re taking the test. Chewing the same flavor can help you remember parts from your studying more.

Try some of these tips and see what works for you. Good luck on your exams!
