Post by Nikki » Tue Jun 10, 2003 4:57 pm

Oh my God!!! I'm so damn stressed about the exams!!! I've no idea why coz I've had a lot of exams before and I've never been THAT stressed!!!

And it seems like everybody has had their exams already :huh:

I have already taken 3 exams, now 9 left...

Oh Gosh, if you know something that could help me get rid off this stress, help me :'( :'( :'( ...please...

OMG! I start finals tomorrow. I haven't studied at all. I have a 3.8 GPA-but not for long (after I take these finals...)



I'm not too worried though-I'm gonna fail them all anyway. I've also just bought bottles of caffeine pills and sleeping pills to help me get through these final exam boot camp weeks.

just take a deep breath. To make your mind clearer, Go to sleep early. Review over your notes RIGHT before you go to sleep.... when you wake up, you'll realize everything is in your head..



EAT A GOOD BREAKFAST when you wake up. no matter HOW un-hungry you are.. lol...



Brain gym helps too... (how do i know this stuff??! ahh!!) One of the excersises is to... hard to explain... but to while lifting your right knee, meet it with your left hand. Do the same with your left knee over and over again.. it makes your thinking clearer, and seriously works. I've done it-



drink water!!



Ok.. now i have to go study fer those exams... lol



GOOOOOD LUCK!!

Guys and gals, I don't mean to scare you and I don't mean to belittle your anxiety over exams, but wait until you get to college. They are 10 times worse.



My best advice to give you is that you either know the material or not. Cramming for 8 hours won't help you that much. Study in two hour blocks or so, taking regular breaks. Eat well and sleep well, and if you feel you are not being effective on one subject, then go to the next, and try it on for size. Definately start reviewing ahead of time, and don't stress yourself out about it. You'll be fine. Just be confident.

the best thing to do is try not to worry and just read through ure notes and write them out again summarising al the important bits. this means that u've got less to read through, that u already know half of it from reading it through and writing it out and you've got a good set of notes with all the important bits in. o and do lotsa past papers cos no matter how well u know all the stuff its the way u answer the question that matters.

if u;ve left it all till last minute read through all ure notes if u have time and try to learn the easier things. its pointless spending loadsa time on something u find difficult and still not being able to do it in the exam and doing even worse cos u didn;t look at the other things that u could have done...if u look aty the easier things at least u'll be able to do something!

ooo they are yucky nasty things. i hate exams in the summer cos its always so nice outside when im revise and i just wanna sit outside and enjoy the weather. we also had exams in january which are horrid as well cos it means u spend the christmas holidays revising...or feeling that you should do anyways!

good luck! :)
