It’s pretty common to attend a Christian worship service or school chapel and find people talking about living with “purpose”. We use words like “calling” and “discernment” when making decisions about how to live and what to do, reinforcing the idea that there is divine relevance to our choices.

For those of us who revolve our lives around the school calendar, this month, May, is notorious for being the worst.  It’s full of all the heavy stuff like AP exams, finals, essays, grading, graduation, technical errors and, more often than not, paying the piper for all the procrastinating we’ve done throughout the year.

(It does pile up, doesn’t it?)

But today let’s consider something else May is also about.

As the semester nears its close, it is important to note that final exams are coming. While for some the thought of taking a final exam may be quite stressful, there are steps you can take now to help prepare you for a smooth finals week. 

The biggest, most obvious thing you can do to prepare yourself for final exams is study. Create a schedule of your upcoming exams and the days you will take each exam. Set aside some time each week to review and study course material from the semester. This may be found in your book and in your online class. Also, keep an eye out as your teacher may have a final exam study guide for you.
