10 tips for students to manage their exam schedule

Students should allot time for study hours, leisure, and other activities based on priority. Pomodoro technique, which is based on 25 minutes of focused work interrupted by five-minute breaks can help.

Prioritize time management

Students need to gauge how much content they can complete in their syllabus and if some of it requires more time. This gives them self-confidence and time to revise.

Adequate distribution of syllabus content

Late-night study to stay sleep-deprived the next day will not help you  memorize and recall what you have studied the last night. It might exhaust your brain to the extent that you might get blank.

Reduce late-night studies

Students should not postpone studying what is there in the syllabus. Study regularly whatever the school is teaching to remain updated including non-interesting subjects or topics you are weak in.

Do not procrastinate

You need to have a partner(s) with whom you can share your queries, preparations, time schedules, and discuss studies. Studying in isolation without peer support will make the preparation incomplete.

Practice group study

Experts share a one-minute exercise that involves bringing your index finger as close to your nose and the eyes. Concentrate for 30 seconds. Practicing this every day can help students to concentrate.

Concentration exercise

Some high school students often tend to smoke a lot before exams and that should be avoided. These habits become an addiction and keep the students awake unnecessarily. Everyone should lead a healthy lifestyle.

Avoid smoking before exams

Create a study space with good lighting, ventilation, and minimal distractions like phones or television. Ensure a good diet and avoid overeating. Support from parents is also crucial.

Suitable home environment

There are many illegal drugs (not FDA-approved) with adulterated compounds, which must be avoided and not purchased over the counter. Students must be aware that there are no pills for exams.

Avoid OTC pills

Reach out for help

Seek help as and when required without hesitation. When students need mental support, parents must guide them to reach out to counsellors or sometimes their teachers to find solutions without delay.
