How to Prepare for Finals

How to Prepare for Finals the Night Before

There is an old saying that student’s mind is capable of learning Chinese language in one night. Such “sprinter” style of learning is kind of bravado act like eating the whole can of pasta without sauce and butter, but sometimes it is really the last chance you get the day before the exam.

Some of us entirely lean on the short-term memory, drinking the gallons of coffee and consuming tons of chocolates, while stuffing own head with new material. With a сertain level of luck, it works. If it doesn’t, you might fall short on knowledge, nerves, or space in your new sweatshirt.

We do not mean to sound pessimistic or whatnot, but it is impossible to learn everything in depth, having just a night before the exam. Still, what time you’ve got could be useful for memorizing the basics, experimenting with study methods, revealing the details not directly related to the subject, and other kinds of allnighter fun before the exam.

Unicheck uncovers the expert views of what to do the night before an exam in order to be happy the day after:

The Changing Landscape of Education: Tools You Didn’t Know You Should Be Using

What does a typical day for a student look like? Breakfast, pack your books and notebooks, go to school, take notes in classes, maybe get scolded for bad handwriting, turn in a paper at the end of class, wash the chalk or marker off your hands, read a book or chat with friends during the break, perhaps talk to someone on the bus on the way home, or take a shortcut through the park, or be angry at parents because they’re late to pick you up; come home, do the homework, mess up a notebook with a leaking pen, watch some TV or read a book. Sounds about right?

No, most likely, not.

Thanksgiving surprise

A Little Surprise This Thanksgiving

One late autumn night closer to Thanksgiving, as Unicheck team was sitting in the dimly lit room in the office, we started talking, as usual, about you.

That’s how all new things get to see the light of day, from new dashboard to the new pricing, from new blog topics to the new quiz themes.

That day was not different.Read More
