Arguably the most stressful week for every college student is finals week. It isn’t just one big test to prepare for in one class but, typically, several massive ones to prepare for all at once. Finals in some classes represent the most significant single portion of the grade for the entire semester. Bombing a final could literally mean failing a class.
The stress of finals week can be hard on students, and many pick up habits during dead week — the week of no classes prior to finals week — that can be pretty detrimental to their health overall. Finding good strategies to cope with the stress of finals week and make studying genuinely productive is the ultimate key to success.
