Laura Smith gives us the top motivational quotes to pull you out of a slump when you're studying.
College exams are fast approaching (like you didn’t know that already or anything!). I’m sure many students out there are feeling like they are feeling a bit like Britney Spears from 2007 right now or maybe having a Lindsay Lohan meltdown for the tenth time this semester. The exam buzz kill is about to take over the college high life, with a bit of reality sinking in, exam season is about to hit the ground running.
Questions like how many pages do I write? When did we do this topic? Is this what the lecturer means? Okay, I am no genius when it comes to exams but to answer these dreaded questions… its quality or quantity with college exams so don’t fear that. Write down the important information on the question and don’t worry about the length. The topics on the exam are covered; just read over your notes and that should help. Email your lectures if you have any worries or concerns and don’t stress.
On that note, exams don’t define you as a person. Never define yourself by a number or exam grade. You are you and are doing a good job at it. So relax and do your best when it’s coming close to exam time. One final note of course is best of luck with the exams! Here is some quotes to get you motivated for the exam season.
