It’s the night before an exam and you realize you haven’t studied yet. We’ve all been there. So what other choice do you have but to pull an all-nighter and study?
Well, if you’re sick of staying up all night, here are a few things you can do to get some extra sleep before your big exam!
1. Schedule Your Time
As soon as you get your class syllabus, go ahead and schedule yourself some study time a week before each exam. If you plan out your studying ahead of time, you’ll be less likely to have to cram it in at the last minute.
2. Study During The Day
If you work during the day finding time to study can be difficult, but if you have the free time during the day, get your studying done before nightfall. Even if the studying sessions are broken up between classes or activities, it can be out of the way come night time.
3. Get Up Early
If you do have a job and you’re unable to study during the day, you can try getting up earlier in the morning and getting some studying done before you have to be at work or class. I know, who wants to get up an earlier than they have to? Trust me, just one hour can do a lot of difference!
4. Study During TV Commercials
A good way to moderate your study breaks is to study during commercials and then take a break when your show comes back on. This will keep you from taking a break that’s too long and causing you to study longer at night. Just be aware if this is affective for you or not. If the TV is too much of a distraction, then find another method that works for you to enjoy studying while not consuming too much of your time!
Everyone studies differently, but we definitely all need sleep! If you’re tired of being tired during your exams because you stayed up all night, try a few of these methods out. Or, share what works for you in a comment below!
