So many awesome things come in threes…tricolour, the Hunger Games trilogy, and chocolate (milk, white, and dark!) are just a few. And so does the best exam study schedule you’ll ever try.
Each day is divided into 3 blocks of time, each 3 hours long. Now just fill out the blocks with studying for each exam. And the best thing is, all the blocks shouldn’t be used for studying. Some should be used for breaks!
Why use this schedule? Well, it gives you (you guessed it) 3 great things:
- Direction: You know what you’re going to do and when you’re going to do it. Keeping on track… check!
- Balance: Exams are a marathon, not a sprint. You need to head to the gym/have a movie night/go out for dinner once in a while! Keeping your life… check!
- Stress Relief: Breaking down your studying into smaller chunks of time makes it so much more manageable! And knowing that you are using your time efficiency while not letting studying (or procrastinating) take over your life is a huge stress reducer. Keeping your sanity… check!
So, try out an exam study schedule this April. I guarantee you won’t regret it!
