Are You Ready for Finals

Can you believe it’s only a few more weeks until Christmas? The semester flew by and finals will soon be upon us. For semester long courses the last day of instruction will be December 11th (dates differ for part-of-term courses).

Here are just a few tips to help you survive finals:

1. Double check your syllabus AND with your instructor to get the details on your class’ final exam

2. Get enough rest

3. Manage your time wisely

Check with your instructor to ensure you have all of the details for your final exam, make sure that you are getting proper rest AND watch how you spend your time during these crucial few weeks.

Finals could make or break your grade, so please be sure to do all that you can to swing things in your favor.
