Exams are Coming? 3 Useful Tips to Deal With Your Workload

Exams are Coming? 3 Useful Tips to Deal With Your Workload
  • Opening Intro -

    One of the main obstacles as a college student was to learn how to deal with the workload of studies during the exams period.

    Every semester the anxiety grew and every college student thinks, at some point, that he/she cannot do it.


This is not a bible that will ensure your academic success, but, if followed and adapted to your personality, it can for sure help you avoid the workload anxiety.

1. The first rule to make it, is to tell yourself that you can do it.

Psychology plays an important role in our lives, and when we say to ourselves that we cannot do it, we are more influenced by this thought and start acting like we can’t. The first step is to tell yourself that it is not too much work and that you can do it. Minimize the negative thoughts and you performance will benefit from it.

If you are into sports, apply your discipline to your academic performance and be your own coach!

2. Plan your study and your breaks.

Planning studies may not be super fun, and it could seem to you that you have so much to do that you can’t actually do it. (Be your own coach, you can do it) Planning breaks can help to alleviate that feeling of defeat. Allow yourself plenty of time to walk, play sports, have snacks and nap if necessary. Study is important, but the necessary concentration comes from relaxation.

3. Colors and memorization.

Colors are memory’s best friend. Try to use different colors to highlight parts of the texts you want to remember.

Try to create your own range of colors that will automatically create a link in your mind with ‘important’ ‘ less important, but i need to remember this’ ‘not really important but I will get a higher grade’.

Create patterns in your mind. Our memory is more sensitive to recording images rather than tons of words, so try to picture in your mind what you are studying. A classic example is a history chapter: try to visualize the images of WW2 for example and as you visualize an image in your mind (like Hiroshima attack) place the date on the image. It will be the same as having an instagram profile in your mind at the end of the chapter.

The most important tip though, is that you should not only rely on your short-term memory to prepare for your exams. By visualizing images you can actually store the memory in a more long-term process, which will be always valuable for your future employment.
