The Home Stretch

It’s getting late in the semester and many students are beginning to feel the pressure.  Looking back, I’m sure many alumni remember the feeling…with only two weeks of classes left, everything seems to begin to pile on at once.  All the projects (which you’ve known about for weeks), homework and tests seem to slam you in one week leaving you scrambling to get everything turned in on time.  And just when you think you’re getting your head above water- you have to turn around and prepare for FINALS!!

I’m starting to believe that finals aren’t so much about showing everything you’ve learned throughout the semester as they are about teaching us to handle pressure and perform in high-stress situations.  When I sit down and think about it, very few of my finals have been any harder than a normal test over a few chapters. 

MY ADVICE:  In the next few weeks, when you’re losing sleep studying for finals, twitching from all the caffeine you’ve had, just relax, take a deep breath and remember- IT’S JUST ANOTHER TEST.
