Swamped with midterms?

Get your priorities straight.

I did something really stupid this weekend: I made a study schedule. My biochemistry midterm is tomorrow. The following week I have three more midterms, a lab report and a test. So I made a mini-calendar of the next two weeks, circling the days when I have a midterm.

I used a colour code to distinguish between each subject and listed the remaining chapters I had to read for each class, along with the suggested practice questions from the textbook and the relevant sections in the notes.

Then I created a detailed agenda, assigning a certain number of hours to each textbook chapter.

Now I’m ready. To study.
