1. Remind yourself of your goals; stay on track!

In the last stretch of the year, it’s easy to lose momentum in school. Refrain from letting your anticipation of summer obstruct you from meeting your aspirations; remember to see the big picture. Remind yourself of that GPA you wanted to attain or that grade you wanted to earn.

2. Make sure your goals are REASONABLE and ATTAINABLE for you!

In high school, it is easy to get caught up in other people’s goals. Make goals that you will be content with, and don’t worry about what other people think of them.

3. Surround yourself with positive and helpful people!

You become who you surround yourself around. If the people around you are pessimistic, then you are bound to pick up their negative energy. In the last stretch of the year, you need nothing but good vibes.

4. Get organized, and don’t procrastinate!

Organize all of your important notes, and start studying two to three weeks before finals so that you have time to review anything in particular that you struggle with.

5. Don’t feel down if you don’t understand a topic – ask for help!

You won’t understand everything at first, and that’s okay. Don’t let that discourage you; you’re not incompetent, you just need help, so ask for it. It’s too late in the year to still be afraid of your teachers.

6. Attend school!

Towards the end of the school year, it can become tiresome to have to get up early every morning and go to school. However, it is important that you fully attend school up until the last day so that you don’t miss any important last-minute lessons.

7. Be present in class!

Not only do you need to attend class, but you also need to be present in class. What use is going to class if you’re going to zone out the entire time? To be present in class means to ask questions, complete worksheets and take notes. If you do this, you’ll be better prepared for your finals.

8. Make a playlist of your favorite music!

Plugging into your favorite playlist allows you to tune into work in front of you without any outside distractions.

9. Stay active, and eat healthy!

Eating healthy and staying active will allow you to be more energized. You can then put this energy towards completing homework and studying for last-minute tests and finals.

10. Get enough sleep!

When you feel good, you do well! If you are not getting enough sleep at night, it might make you fall asleep during class, or make you not be as attentive as you should be, which could lead to you missing key information.
