As finals week approaches Thiel College, students are becoming restless and nervous. The dreaded term ‘finals’ indicates a final exam, usually cumulative, that tests the knowledge of students from their semester-ling courses. It is important to keep a few things in mind as finals approach, Tomcats.
- Your grades do not define you. Sure, getting an A or even a B on a final is the end goal, and it can be upsetting when you do not get the grade that you wanted in your coursework, but it does not define who you are as a student or person. Not everyone is perfect, and you will face challenges like this throughout your college career.
- Study! Studying is extremely important in a college setting. Repetition, recall, and many other study habits can be useful based on the type of learner you are. Make those flashcards, read the textbook, and look over the notes and worksheets from the semester. You will not regret it when you receive your final grade.
- Breathe. Finals can be extremely stressful. Everyone experiences the pressure and anxiety that come with finals. It is important to take a deep breath and realize that you absolutely can achieve what you want. You are capable.
Attached are the finals, RLC, and ARC schedules. You got this, Tomcats!
