Study Tip: Give yourself time to study

Don’t leave studying to the last minute. While some students appear to thrive on last-minute cramming, it’s been proven time and again that (for most people) this is not the best way to approach an exam.

To help with time management, it’s a good idea to set up a timetable for your studying. Write down how many exams you have and when they are. Then organize your study schedule according to how much time you need to dedicate to each exam or quiz. It is recommended to spread your studying out for 3-4 days before your exam.

It is best to do this as soon as you learn about an upcoming exam so you are not caught by surprise and you will always be prepared.
