Preparation for AP Exams


It is about that time of the school year when On-level students are about to be so annoyed. It is about that time of the school year that AP students will begin taking their AP exams. Whether you are in AP Environmental Science, AP Biology, AP Statistics, or AP English, History, Pre Calculus, you are stressed. Stress is a huge factor in this part of the school year. With all of the Ap exams coming around, finals in a few weeks, and last minute projects that our teachers throw in our faces, wouldn’t it be unhealthy to not be stressed? There are a few things that you can do to prepare for the AP Exam that you have chosen to take:

  1. Get enough sleep. Sleep is a necessity for testing well and being ready for new days that you are taking in large quantities of knowledge that you need to remember. Getting around 7.5-8.5 hours of sleep every night is the best amount of sleep to pertain because you will not be tired nor drowsy from getting too much sleep.
  2. Stop Studying after 11:30 P.M. Your brain lowers in memorization level around 11:30 at night so studying past that time will just be a waste and could be your sleep time instead. Sleep and studying are equivalent in level of importance.
  3. Finally, stop freaking out. AP exams are hard and you need to study for them, but if you freak yourself out too much, testing is going to be a nightmare. Chill out. Stress levels are so high during the AP Exam weeks. You don’t need to have any more distractions from testing well.

Good luck on your AP Exam and don’t stress. You’ve got this!
