Now that we are just about half way through the fall semester, it is officially time to start studying and preparing for midterms; if you haven't already, that is! When students hear the word midterm, they often tense up when they realize how much material they are about to be tested on. Furthermore, regardless of how much they have studied, many students go into their midterms with a stomach full of butterflies as the anticipation of the test alone takes over their calm sense of self - but it doesn't have to!

Here at Bramson ORT College, we understand the stress, pressure and nerves that our students feel both before and during their midterms, which is why we've compiled a list of some of the most effective test taking tips to help during this difficult time; please see below:
  1. Go into your test with a positive attitude. When you enter your classroom with a positive mind set, you are already setting yourself up for success!
  2. Avoid cramming the night before. When you overload yourself with information too close to the test, you're more likely to forget the information you've worked so hard to learn. Instead, only do a brief review of the material prior to the test.
  3. Take a few minutes to go through the test before even looking at the first question to get a feel for how you will have to manage your time. Additionally, if you look at a question and don't know the answer, don't panic! Skip it and move on, then come back to it at the end.
Are you a Bramson ORT College student that has midterms coming up? Are you having trouble with the material you are required to know and understand? Visit the tutoring center for help!
