Study Tips for the New Year

Undeclassmen offer sound advice on study habits
Study Tips for the New Year

The New Year welcomes a new era of self growth for most people. People will set goals for working out, making money, and eating healthier. A popular goal among teenagers and college-students is to get and keep better grades for the next year. A few students at Spring Lake have some study tips to help reach the goal of better grades:

Kilian Koert, a straight-A freshman, uses these strategies like setting time away to do your studying before you start studying, and make a plan for how you are going to study a week before the test to keep her high grades.

Kilian also says to “study a little bit each night instead of cramming the night before the test.” She usually takes small breaks in between studying for long periods of time. 

Chelsea McConnell, another straight-A freshman, says to help people bring their grades up in the New Year they should take lots of breaks while studying so you don’t get burnt out.

If you are stressed going into a test make sure you eat and drink something because studies show that it helps lower your stress. Chelsea usually studies for tests and exams by “typically using study guides given from teachers to study, I fill them all the way in about 2 days before the test. Then depending on how hard the test material is for me I spend 10-30 minutes a day looking over it.”

Tresa Groendyke, a straight A sophomore, recommends “staying focused in class, especially when new stuff is being taught.” This helps so that when the test comes you will need to study less.

She also recommends to not procrastinate doing your homework and studying, and to try to have the least amount of absences in all your classes possible.

Overall, most studentsrecommend taking breaks in between studying. Studies show that the best way to take breaks while studying is to study for 50 to 90 minutes and then take a break for 15 to 20 minutes.

Finals week for Trimester 2 begins March 4.
