Dear Dish-It: Finals Are Coming Up

May 07, 2012

Dear Dish-It,

Final exams are coming up in June and I’m really scared of failing. What should I do?

Epic Fail

Dear EF,

Lucky for you, it’s early May, so there’s still plenty of time to study! I know it can be hard when the weather is warming up and all you feel like doing is going outside and being in the sun, but just think of how good you’ll feel once summer comes and school’s out, knowing you did your very best to get top marks in your finals and end the year off right!

Get Organized

First thing’s first: set yourself up to be a successful studier! Before you start cramming, get your notes in an order that makes sense to you. You may even want to copy some of your messier notes out again (this is also a great way to get information to stick in your head). Then, as you go through everything you need to know for your exams, highlight the parts that you had trouble with or that don’t make sense so you can give extra attention to those before you write your finals.

Study Buddy

Unless you’re better working on your own, ask a friend or two to form a study group and meet once a week or so to get set for finals together. Here’s a good tip: pick friends who have strengths in different subjects than you, so you can tutor each other in math, English, science, etc.

Teacher Talk

While you’re studying (you should set aside time every night or couple of nights to prepare before June rolls around), make note of the things you really don’t understand and don’t be afraid to ask your teacher to clear things up for you. Once finals roll around, you’ll be glad you did!

Have Your Say

Got any good advice for Epic Fail? Leave your comment below!

Thanks,

Dear Dish it

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
