EXAMS:  The exam schedule is up around the school and on the school website.  Students are reminded to record when they are writing their exams and to start making their study plan now.

Give yourself the best chance with these study tips.

  1. Give yourself enough time to study. Don’t leave it until the last minute. Make a plan early that has you reviewing different sections each day, but also re-reviewing what you’ve looked at.
  2. Organize your study space.  Get rid of distractors.
  3. Review old tests and assignments.
  4. Take regular breaks when studying.
  5. Snack on ‘brain food’ and stay hydrated.
  6. Plan your exam day- know what you need to bring, the format of the exam and what information will be on it.
