As we near this time of the year, most of us face one certain problem, Exam Stress. This is very normall. So I would like to help out by pointing out a few things that made me more comfortable facing the exams.1) Have a study plan-Start planning a revision timetable now. This should include realistic goals and also short breaks. I found it useful to get some fresh air after an hour of studying. 2)Organise a Group study-I found this to be very helpful as studying with your friends is always fun(as long as you don't mess around!)3)Health-Get plenty of sleep and eat healthy.You should fuel your body with healthy food to optimise your performance.4)Use online resources-For all those engineering students out there,Khan Academy is a huge help.5)Do Exam Papers-This is very important and you will not regret doing this.Here are some more tips on Exam Stress:http://services.su.nuigalway.ie/site/view/4010/If you do feel stressed, talk to someone about it.Your parents or... read more
