Exam time is here! That means a few things:
cramming, cramming, and cramming…and loads of coffee perhaps.
Is cramming necessary though? It is natural for university students like many of us to
stress everything into last minute but of course, that is not wise at all. We all
talk about setting a neat time table and creating to-do lists but in the end do not
follow them at all. Then, how do we prepare well for exams, while getting
enough time to rest and relax? People usually believe that you can only choose
two out of these three: good grades, sleep, and social life. Lucky enough, we
can do the simple maths here. 24 hours for three aspects of life we
would like to indulge in. That sounds like 24/3 and that gives us 8.
Eight hours of sleep, eight hours of studying, and eight
hours of relaxing. Eight hours of relaxing and eight hours of studying is a LOT
of time when you come to think of it. This simple 8-hour rule for these
three aspects vital to the lives of university students who wish to obtain a first
in their degrees, get enough sleep for daily energy, and parrrrr-tay! Now, following
the eight-hour rule isn’t too difficult. That just means you only
need a little bit of discipline and not following the timetable wouldn’t
be much of an issue. What comes with this eight-hour rule is efficiency
with this time. Be productive and be efficient – study hard, play hard, and
eventually this while exhaust you to a good level where you can get into a
deep sleep. Studying for 2 hours can give you so much when you are
focused, imagine what 8 hours can give you! Relaxing for the same
amount of time can bring you so much enjoyment as well. Is
this rule difficult? Definitely not, and it’s definitely worth a try. Now, to keep
track of any other things, you can simply make notes on your phone
and make sure you would not forget any other things, may
that be giving your parents back home a phone call,
meeting a friend for brunch, and more.
I recommend you all to give this a try this – and hopefully the results would amaze you!
