6 #LifeHacks to Ace Midterms

#GrindTime You begin with a semester and as soon as you are about to get hold of the subjects an alarm starts to buzz in the background intimating about the upcoming midterms!! But didn’t we just start? Is the first question that pops! The exam tremors start creeping up and the hysteria starts to knock the leftover sense. And the brain finally tries to sink in the reality and announces, ‘My dear! There is absolutely no escape. Therefore you better start studying before your student residence becomes a scene from a horror movie! Midterm fever may try to take you down with all its energy but hey there, we have got you covered! Here is a compilation of some extraordinary guide points to help you get through your midterm examination! PLAN IT AHEAD IMAGE 1 Don’t get carried away at the thought of Syllabus Sea. It’s alright! Make a schedule and divide the subjects or included topics and plot them against the number of days left. Making a plan will actually regain your confidence that you can still do something about it. The plan needs to be followed religiously. Do NOT just make it and let it sit inside the journal. FOLLOW! Also, your schedule should be three things. Achievable, Realistic and Crisp! STUDY SMART NOT HARD IMAGE 2 Be smart in a way; that before you stick down to cram up the whole syllabus, it is recommended to gather all the hand-outs and notes taken in the class. Pile these up, and start going through these first. It is very smart to go through all the past tests and assignments to give yourself a fair idea of what your teacher thinks is important from exam point of view. However, this should not be just it; you must go through the other parts as well. GROUPING IMAGE 2 Must have heard, ‘Two heads are better than one’! Well, you may ask a couple of your classmates to gather in your student residence for giving your study game a raise. This will make you feel felt and you’ll have the confidence of others being in the same boat as you. Make sure the partners that you choose must have the same targets as yours; otherwise, the whole plan can be a fiasco! Grouping can also help you with the missing notes and concepts. So do not hesitate to ask for it! SAVE THE TIME image 4 This one is for the people residing in a student residence. Once you start to study, you will realize how tiny things bite off your time. Do NOT skip on your meals for the sake of not wasting your time on cooking. Well, be a little organized and store your groceries ahead of time. Also, cook a few meals and refrigerate. If not this, order readymade meals. STOMPING ON SLEEP image 5 This one is strictly prohibited. A fresh brain can perform thrice as better than an insomniac or worn out brain. Try not to drag yourself through the all-nighters. Take at least three to four hours of sleep before appearing for the exam. CHANGE PLACES IMAGE 6 Change of scenery can help you feel afresh and can affect your retention. Try changing places while prepping. If the grouping worked for you, you may take turns in others’ rooms as well. And if not that, use the library or a nearby coffee shop for the purpose!   Keep yourself all collected through the midterm mania. A stitch in time saves nine. Don’t rely on the last minute preparation. Start preparing well ahead to save yourself from distress. Also, this guide works before the eleventh hour as well. We have warned you! What are your favorite hacks to get through the midterms? Let us know in the comment section below or tag us in your creative methods.

Need to write an A-List paper? Here's How!

Let's get busy! Where being a university student brings you a lot of perks of independence, there, the first jolt that you get is when you are asked to write a paper.  Most of the students, tend to put off the hard task on the fact that since they can’t produce a good one. Suddenly, the days go by and often you end up submitting a ~somewhat plagiarized~ or third-grade paper when they fall short on time. This ultimately leads to bad grades and, and as we all know too well, papers usually make up a large portion of students grades. Here are few tricks to guide you through writing your paper so you don’t have to toss out plagiarized version a night before.   KNOW WHAT YOUR PROFESSOR WANTS Before you begin writing a paper it’s very important to know what your professor wants. Go through the assignment you are provided with. It's more effective to do it that very day when it handed over. Generally, teachers tend to give a rubric containing eminent things that they will be looking for while grading. If you haven’t gotten one, do not hesitate to ask for one. It will be completely unfair to assess students without letting them know what is expected of them. Once you make a rubric, you need to be clear how will you end the paper. Craft the paper in the same manner. Read the assignment critically to analyze what it asks of you. Write anchor sentences in the rubric as a reminder to stay on the track while writing the paper. ORGANIZE YOUR PAPER Sit down! Yes, that’s the foremost thing you ought to do. You might have come across a few tasks which are only hindered because of not getting time to sit down. It is said 90% of the tasks are considered done the moment you sit down for them. Specify yourself a time slot in your daily routine for the paper. It's important that your targets are realistic and are being met each day. This will give you a feel of accomplishment. Commit yourself to the process and do a bit of it every day. Remind yourself that this little bit is an important addition to your overall career. COMING UP WITH IDEAS OF PAPER Once you have achieved the first two steps, now is the time to open your thinking bag and get to work. Gazillions of ideas come floating in through a small window and are hard to interpret. A lot of people recommend free writing. Freewriting helps you make records that can be used in the future as key points. Free writing generally seems vague and disorienting in later stages. Mapping, on the other hand, is quite useful. Map your thoughts in an organized manner like a flow chart. This will pop guiding questions for your research and will clearly demonstrate how your ideas are linked. This technique is super beneficial for writing long research papers.   THESIS STATEMENT Create an excellent topic overview upon which the paper is based. The topic should be generic. After this narrow down to construct the specifics of your paper. Present at least three solutions to the problem you presented in the overview. And then at the end, trim it down to the best of three and make connections with the most appropriate one. EDIT THE PAPER After finishing it still won’t let you go this easy. Revise your paper thoroughly. Ask a good study partner to do this favor for you. Edit the mistakes and apply proper formatting techniques. Review it again and at the end give it a read for the last pass. Once you are done with these three steps refer to the rubric, and honestly review if you filled the requirements?   After finishing these tasks off print it and hand the devil off. It’s very unlikely that you don’t get a good grade unless there are some major errors involved! There is still a tip to it. Start working on it the day you get it. It won’t take your grade records down. Any brilliant addition to the list? Do share with us in the comment section or tag us on instagram at @scathys.
