Final Exam Tips & Checklist: 

  • Finals are cumulative, but will not cover everything – ask your teacher what you can expect on the test
  • DO NOT miss the “review day” if your teacher has one. Come prepared to take notes and ask questions!
  • Chip away at studying; try not to “cram”
  • Save everything – including old tests and quizes
  • Save old notes
  • Form a study group on a subject

Finals Checklist – 2-4 weeks before the exams

  • Go through saved tests & quizzes; look over the questions you got wrong – do you understand why you got them wrong? Do you understand the concepts now?
  • Re-organize or re-write old notes
  • Ask your teacher about concepts you are still struggling with
  • Quiz friends over vocabulary
  • Watch Youtube videos or documentaries that are related to concepts you are studying (particularly in Science and History)
  • Ask about essay questions in English and Theology – if there will be essay questions, re-read or review the material you will have to write about (e.g. short stories, poems, a particular passage of scripture, etc.)

Finals Checklist – week/weekend before the the exams

  • Make sure to attend all your review classes
  • Go through notes and highlight material you know will be on the test
  • Get good sleep
  • Eat healthy food
  • Exercise
  • Pray – don’t stress!

Hint: It’s easier to stay calm and perform well on the tests if you know that you have prepared!
