I usually put a video on yt that last like the time that I want to study…. Like ghibli studio music or strive study… After a while as soon as I put on the music I was ready to study…

Revise your work carefully , and close any gaps you may have in the exam. Slowly take your time, but don't let it cut into your relaxing time! Ask you teacher if any questions. Good luck!

It depends on how you learn. I personally am an audible learner, so I find videos online to watch. Once I feel confident that I understand the subject, I do practice problems and check to see if I’m correct. Khan Academy, The Organic Chemistry Tutor, and StudyNova are extremely useful for me.

Start early, plan, make a to-do list, don't let the distractions make you waste your precious time for studying. Rest when done with the plan for a day. Exercise. Take breaks while studying. Don't forget to drink water. Make yourself nutritious meals. Don't stay up late. Plan ahead and don't put off studying until there's little time left.

– make an outline of important points
– spend as much time as possible in the weeks before the exam investigating each point, finding alternative sources, “buildings context”
– the week of the exam, make a quick run through any practice questions, make up your own, challenge each other in a study group
– the day before: look over the big picture again
– the hour before “ the Hour of Power” go over, very quickly, all of the vocab, equations, main ideas, etc (the short lists you should have memorized) if math is involved, get your math mind warmed up
– eat one hour before; avoid carbs; drink coffee only if it is helpful; be early; have supplies; put on noise canceling headphones and get in the zone.
– during: FOCUS, split up sections so any time limit isn’t a problem, only stop if you need the restroom and do that immediately and quickly so you don’t lose momentum

The best way to study for a big exam is to actually start studying ealier and not let everything on the last minute. Also, studying constantly and taking practice exams (and even creating them for yourself to answer them later) it is a good way to remember what you study. Trying to explain to yourself or to others what your read to see if you understand the subject is a very good way to remember what you study. You also need to get enough sleep so that you can concentrate on your reading.

While studying the chapter, Plan is the key, Took important points, simplify the concept through understanding and write simplified short notes, before exam just go through it.

Good organization and clean learning space. Plan 10-15 days and divide the big book into smaller parts. Learn a part every day. Take notes and use markers and colors to highlites the main words. Take longer breaks as well as go for a walk as a reaward for "achieving results during the day". Good coffee or juice and also lighter but more frequent meals.

Making a goond situation and relax envirement, start a fast reading content like newspaper to become fimiliar with subjects and throwing away stress that lack of knowledge cuased,
Starting reading with focuse and writing important parta in notes, after finishing whole course, we can review the notes several times

The best way to study is to break down the exam into topics that will be on the test, assess which ones you really need help with and prioritize time spent looking over that material first, then go down to the next topics that will just require you to review a few items.

firsts thing first disconnected with your social media and try to encourage yourself being productive and more work smart .use youtube or making cute little note that can memorize everytime someone ask about it BUT IF YOU DONT FEEL LIKE YOURE GOING TO DO THIS mhm youre a failure yeah i just said it cause its the TRURTH GURL

Cheryl F.
I find taking myself away from normal life. Find a quiet space where you can concentrate make sure you are comfortable and warm. No distractions. I would suggest the deep work programme on here as it gives you a clear guidance of how long you have been working.

This of course is the ideal scenario, good luck in your exam.

Sabeeha Q.
I always prepare consistently in advanced as the year goes. So when it I near time for exams it is just a matter of revision or working on tough concepts or things I was not able to do. I love using flow charts and writing summary notes to study. Makes it easier to visualize

Dolores N.
The best way is to break your material into chunks, and study one chunk at a time. Take a break between each, ideally spreading this out over a few days if you can. Even if it’s a short break, it will help your recall if you can organize your thoughts by organizing your studying.

Nelli Q.
Start reviewing far enough ahead so that you can review all your material and every night you just re-review some of what you learned the night before. Check out Google Google has some interesting ideas and good luck.

Hafsa F.
The best way is to start early like three weeks before the exam and it depends from a person to another and also organize your time and study in a calm place. And good luck:)
PS: I have exams too :'(

Leander R.
test your existing ability on past papers, make a study plan for topics that you need most, have a good rest the night before the exam.

Joey F.
The best way is to set a timer for however long you want to study for each subject. Sit in a quiet place so it is easier to focus. Drink lots of water.

Henry J.
Being ready for it in your mind and your body. You have to have no fear or if you have a fear you have to realise it and you should learn walk with it.

Studying little by little since the beginning and not a week before the exam, so then you don’t have the feeling of being rushed, anxious, nervous 🙂

Eri P.
What worked for me was 1. Remove distraction i.e. cell phone when studying 2. Take your own notes from all reading material you have , i.e books, internet, class notes 3. Think that going out with friends can be postponed for after the exam so you will celebrate together ☺️

Dawn Q.
Try to study when you’re cup is full: you aren’t tired, you aren’t hungry, you aren’t restless. Set a timer against your distractions, and visualize what you are studying. For example, if you are studying blood flow through the circulatory system, see all the parts and what they do. Name them. Understand the purpose.

Review the lessons carefully after the lecture was done. Recall important keywords, note them down in the notebook. Before the exam comes in about 2 days, review the keywords again.
