The Bulldog Byte hopes everyone can take time to do great on their semester finals this week. Whether it be Math, Science, Social Studies, or English, we all know the struggles of the constant stress of studying for these challenging tests.

Stephen Bennett, junior at RCHS, describes finals as “more of a stressful, tiring, depressing test” he has to accomplish in order to pass most of his classes. 

Donald Garrett, RCHS senior, points out that finals don’t have to be stressful. “When you’re doing good at the beginning of the year, you really don’t have anything to worry about,” Garrett said. “That’s the way I think about it. Just stay on top of it from the start so you don’t have to stress about it when exams come up.”

There are many websites out there giving advice about how to have the best final experience and we here at the Byte have compiled a list of what we think are some of the best:

1. Know the exams schedule. Be absolutely sure that you know when your finals will be held. Coming to school and being prepared for the wrong exam can ruin anyone’s day. We have the exam schedule of RCHS listed below.

2. Get some sleep. Many students make the mistake of waiting until the night before to stay up all night for a cram session. Pulling an all-nighter, though, is one of the worst things that you can do because tired brains  do not retain information or recall it well. So pace yourself and get some sleep.

3. Stay active. Exercise boosts blood flow to the brain and sitting in one place for an extended period of time can lead to a tired mind. So fit in some workouts the week of finals. We should all be doing that anyway, right?

4. Eat well. Eating healthy food is always a great idea. Try to avoid processed carbohydrates that will eventually make you tired and try to eat foods that are digested slowly instead such as whole grains, fresh vegetables, and lean proteins.

5. Cut down on social media time. It is definitely true that studying too much and for too long at one time can be bad for learning, but it’s also bad to keep interrupting your studying to check social media. As most of us know, checking social media for “just a second” can lead to an entire afternoon of watching hilarious cat videos and reading celebrity gossip. So cut down on your time while studying. Your grades will thank you!

In case you didn’t know already, the exam schedule at RCHS is as follows:

 

Wednesday 12/20 Thursday 12/21
8:35-9:30 1st Period Exam 8:35-9:30 5th Period Exam
9:34-10:29 2nd Period Exam 9:34-10:29 6th Period Exam
10:33-11:28 3rd Period Exam 10:33-11:28 7th Period Exam
11:32-12:27 4th Period Exam 11:32-12:27 8th Period Exam
12:27-1:00 Lunch 12:27-1:00 Lunch

 

Good luck everyone! We know you can do it!
