How To Fight The Pre-Exam Slump

Pre-exam slump? Check out this article, It says that students tend to create study plans every day; but the problem is that study plans became futile when the urge to slouch takes over. So instead of making it a daily basis routine, create a project method to plan your exam and plot your work in a visual panic schedule. No matter what, stick to that plan.

But of course, being on alert and making sure that your plan is always in progress can be stressful as well. So don’t forget to take a breather. Reserve one day with no “To Do List” so that you are free to do anything you want to do like watch a movie with a friend; eat without hurry; or go to malls.

These would rejuvenate you and could get you going again for the loads you have to take.  Also, who says you cannot break the rules? Violate as many rules as you can. If it is the general practice that you study one week ahead of your examination date, do something different like studying a month ahead.

Do you usually study in the library? How about changing it into studying in the park or memorizing while in transit? When our mind is not set to the generally accepted norm; there are more chances that we will not fall into procrastination.
