Exam season can be tough, but don’t worry, we’ve got your back. With a little bit of planning and a few helpful tips, you’ll be ready to crush those exams in no time. Here are some tips to help you ace your exams while living in Portugal.
• Say goodbye to social media and phone notifications! Eliminating distractions can help you stay focused while studying for exams. Try using apps like Focus@Will or Forest to keep you on track and boost productivity.
• If you struggle with productivity, put down those notes and textbooks and try quizzing yourself or teaching the topics to a friend. Nido residents can use our group study areas to practice active study techniques with your classmates and ace those exams.
• Studying hard doesn’t mean you have to burn out. Take a break and recharge your batteries. Head to a game room or tv lounge in your building, or outside to a local park to help you relax and come back stronger.
• Staying organized is key to managing your time effectively and reducing stress. Use a planner or online tools like Trello or Google Calendar to keep track of assignments and study sessions.
• Success comes from planning ahead. Avoid cramming and reduce stress by planning your study schedule well. Take advantage of our private study rooms and group study areas to stay focused and manage your time effectively.
• Want to perform your best on your exams? Make sure you’re getting enough rest. Managing your sleep is essential to get the most from your study time. Make sure you have a comfortable and quiet environment to help you get the rest you need and improve your cognitive function.
• Fuel your brain with healthy and delicious food. Portugal is known for its fresh and nutritious cuisine, and there are plenty of options to choose from. Foods such as grilled fish, a staple of Portuguese cuisine, are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids which give your brain the boost it needs.
• Keep calm and study on! Find quiet study areas and other spaces, like our yoga room, where you can take a break and recharge your mind. Practice meditation or mindfulness techniques to stay centred and focused during exams.
