The end of semester can be a stressful time for students as teachers need to get their last grades in the grade book along with preparation for final exams. It can seem like a lot to work to handle at once, but there are ways to manage all of the work.

In the last week before finals start, teachers have to make sure they are fitting in all of the required curriculum. Having multiple test before finals week may seem like a lot, but it is an opportunity to get final grades for that class and help review questions that will appear on the final.

“The last two weeks of school are just really stressful because we not only have finals to do but we have to take test over lessons just taught and I find myself having trouble balancing it all,” junior Kenzie DeLong said.

If students take it day by day and plan out what you need to do in order to be successful for test this week and finals next it will not seem as bad.

Trying to juggle multiple study guides at once can get you all worked up about what all needs to be done. Instead when you feel stressed about once class take a break, do something relaxing, move on to another subject and then come back to what you have been struggling with later.

According to Binghamton University, students’ stress increases as much as 30 percent during the week of finals because they are worried about how well they will do. Stressing out about finals does not help and can hurt performance on finals.

School may seem crammed during the last few weeks, but the best way to handle it is to not psych oneself out.
