  • Organize Ahead of Time – Start organizing for midterms a few weeks in advance.  This includes gathering and editing notes, making note cards/Quizlets, and reviewing the material you covered in class.  Nothing is more stressful than cramming for midterms at the last minute, so getting prepared ahead of time will make the process much easier.

 

 

  • Do Not Rely on Group Study Sessions – Studying with friends can be very helpful, but I usually find myself fooling around at study sessions.  I still go to group study sessions because I like to learn from other people’s perspectives, but I always set aside other time to study in case the study session turns into a movie night with friends.

 

 

  • Do Not Stay Up All Night Studying – It is much more effective to study important information during the daytime than to study absolutely everything overnight.  Studying all night can be very overwhelming, and it prevents you from getting a full night’s sleep.  If you are too tired to focus while taking your midterm, your full night of studying will have been pointless anyway.

 

 

  • Eat Breakfast – Don’t skip breakfast!!  It’s called the most important meal of the day for a reason. . .  Breakfast gives you the energy you need to make it through the day, and to stay awake during your midterm.

 

  • Don’t Stress Too Much! – After all, they’re just midterms.  If you do well, that’s great!  If you don’t do well, there will be other opportunities to improve your grade.  No matter what happens, the world will keep spinning and life will go on.  Just relax and do your best.
