final exam survival guide
as finals week quickly approaches, here are some tips to help you do your best!


Getting a good night's sleep before an exam is just as important as the studying itself! Develop a healthy sleep schedule for finals week, aiming for 6-8 hours of sleep each night. Your mind and body will thank you!

Eat healthy

Be sure to fill yourself with healthy meals, snacks and water to give yourself the energy and nutrients you need to make it through the week!

Make a Study Plan

Time management for finals week is key! Make sure you block off adequate amounts of study time for each exam, as well as stay organized with all of your study materials.


Take some time for yourself to relax and unwind from the stress of finals. At the end of the day, it's not worth spending every waking moment studying for your exams, so make sure you take some time for yourself and your sanity!

you got this! We wish you all the best of luck with exams:)
