But there are some Einstein’s who manage to ace their exams along with their bad habit of procrastinating. Yes, there’s a silver lining in dark times and you can manage to pass your finals even with few days to go.

Focus on the main topics

You can skip out the unnecessary paragraphs and focus on the math and balance sheets that you need to have practice on. Math is something you don’t have to memorize but you can work out on the formulas and the algebra to help you get familiarized with the theorems and the equations.
Make time for ‘you’
As much group study sessions are effective and fun, it’s important that you study separately when you have only few days for your exams.

Make this time alone and you can focus on the gray areas that you need to work on.

Your body is basically a machine and it’s important that you give your brain sometime to rest so that you focus on other subjects. Don’t bite the whole meal, you will end up choking and your hunger will not be satiated.
