Many people dread finals week as the worst time in the semester, however, there are a few reasons why I actually..wait for it..ENJOY the week.
1. There are no classes. This is glorious. You have an additional 4-5 hours a day, if not more. You don’t have to wake up at a certain time. You don’t even need to leave your room if you don’t feel so inclined. There are no lectures to listen to or notes to take. At this point in the game, you have been exposed to all of the information that you need to know.
2. You have all of the time. An added benefit to no classes is that your only responsibility is to study hard for the final. You can wake up at 9:00 am and hit the books till 9:00 pm with no time constraints by homework or assignments due the next day.
3. You’ve already been tested on 90% of the material. Finals are not that terrible!! You have already been tested on most of it and the important stuff was probably placed on a test you’ve taken. Go back and review the stuff you’re amazing at to boost the confidence, then spend the time to learn what you need to know.
4. If you do it right, finals boost your grade. This semester, literally every one of my finals is worth 40% of my grade. THAT’S INSANE. It could boost you from a C to a B or a B to an A. Finals are your golden ticket if you don’t slack off.
I believe in you. I believe in me. I believe in the power of finals. One more week kids, then we are home free!
