With exams approaching, students often study beforehand in order to get a good grade. Listed here are 5 essential study tips to help students prepare for the fast-approaching exams.

  1. Practice on old exams.  The formats are often similar and gives students a good idea of what is to be expected.
  2. Take breaks.  Do not take hour long breaks with 20 minute study periods.  In fact, the exact opposite should be done.  A short break helps students learn the information and stay relaxed during.
  3. Eat healthy foods.  Eating certain foods may improve the information retained from a study session.  Among these foods are fish, nuts, seeds, yogurt, and fruit such as blueberries.
  4. Get enough sleep!  Teenagers, on average, need nine hours of sleep, but so few teenagers actually get the correct amount.  Cognitive functioning and memory is improved when students sleep enough.
  5. Keep a clean study space.  A cluttered study space makes it harder to focus.  Students retain more when their study space is clean.

Good luck on your exams, Stafford High!
