The best way to study is, well, to not study. Of course you already know the material! As a matter of fact, I’m busy not studying and reflecting right now!
Don’t study what will be on the test
Okay, so maybe you’ve decided that you do want to study for the test. Well, just make sure you study literally anything and everything that will not pertain to what you will actually be tested on.
Now that you’ve studied and opened the test, be sure to let your brain run away. Somehow, brains decide to throw away any important information as soon as a test is opened. Typically, this is where annoying song lyrics decide to take over your brain and play nonstop on repeat (Baby Shark comes to mind).
Scared of forgetting everything? Make sure to overstudy for the simplest of tests! There’s no feeling as satisfying as opening a test and realizing “Hey, I could have studied for fifteen minutes and aced this but I studied for three hours.”
End up studying something else
Have you ever started studying for a math test and ended up looking at the Wikipedia article for high fives and somehow finished the new season of your favorite show on Netflix? Just roll with it. You never know when someone’s going to break out a Kahoot on The Office and all of that shame will be washed away in a fifteen-minute period of glory.
Study with someone
Sometimes, if you’re in the same class as someone else, you’ll end up studying together. Of course, this never works out. You both just end up arguing about K pop.
Studying can be pretty hard, especially since midterms are so close! Power through it you guys, and we can make fun of how much/badly we studied together!
