When one of my favorite college bloggers Samantha from As Life Grows asked me if she could write a guest post for the blog, I was really excited. Not only is Samantha’s content always on point, but she’s also an inspiration of mine! With midterms coming up, you probably have a lot of exams coming your way. Samantha is here to make sure you’re ready! Want to guest post too? Make sure to email me at email@example.com! So without further adieu, enjoy the post!
One thing that every student has to do in college is memorizing. Lucky for some, this comes really easy to them. For others, however, memorization is tough. They struggle to learn new material and actually keep it in their heads. They spend hours studying their notes and still don’t see the results that they hoped for. If this sounds like something you struggle with, then I encourage you to dive right into learning from this post! In this post, I am going to be sharing with you five ways that you can improve your memorization skills before your next test. View Post
As finals are approaching (5 weeks left y’all!), that means that we’re soon going to find ourselves buried in papers to hand in and exams to study for.
Now, if you’re a freshman, you’ve probably heard plenty of things about finals. They might even scare you. Trust me, finals are hard. But it’s also totally doable. (I mean, every college student survive them. We might not always do great, but we do well enough to pass.)
If you’re a upperclassman, you know the drill: study, complete assignment, study, eat, study, study, sleep, repeat.
No matter what, I think that one of the reasons why a lot of people are struggling with finals is because they don’t know how to study for a college exam. I know you’re probably thinking, what? But trust me, I know people who had never studied a day in their life before they got to college. So wouldn’t it be normal for those people to have absolutely no idea what they’re doing? If that’s your case, don’t worry! I’m going to share my secrets on how to study for your college exams… and how to ace them!
If you already have a study technique, this post might not be for you. You can always check out my study tips to help you make it easier! View Post
There are two times in a semester that all students hate: finals and midterms. Let’s be honest. No matter what your major is, we all hate midterms. Why? Because it’s one of the busiest time of the semester.
The first few weeks of the semester, professors are taking it cool, not giving you too many tests or assignments. Weeks go by, and suddenly, you have 4 exams and 3 papers to hand in during the same week, and you’re asking yourself how you’re ever going to go through this.
I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed. So stop, take a deep breath and let’s go through this together. This is my guide for how to survive midterms. View Post
The transition from high school to college can be tough, on more than one level. But what freshmen don’t always seem to realize is that college classes are harder than high school ones. It might be not the case for every single one of your classes, but you will find yourself struggling to get grades as good as the ones you used to have in high school. Getting A’s in college is much harder than it is in high school. And while grades aren’t everything, it sure impacts your college life.
During my first semester at university, I managed to get A’s in every single one of my classes. That gave me a 4.18 GPA (in Quebec the GPA is calculated out of 4.3), which is pretty amazing. I never expected to do that well in my first semester, because I had heard that college was much harder than high school and cegep (another Quebec thing).
But if I can do it, I know you can too! Once you have figured out a routine that works for you, it’s not that hard to get those straight A’s. This is why I’m sharing my secrets to getting A’s in college.
I hate to break it to you, but finals are coming.
*starts freaking out*
Okay, now let’s take a deep breath, because I got you covered! I have been through five semesters of finals, so I know how it feels to be overwhelmed
(and let’s not even talk about what if feels like to be an IB student in a girls’ private high school). I thought I would gather all of my knowledge and experience and prepare this finals survival guide.
Now, you don’t only want to get through your finals but to ace them! And this guide will help you do just that!
