We can’t stress it enough… your AP exams are around the corner! All students go through similar struggles, and likewise, they make the same mistakes. How can you avoid those mistakes and stay a step above the rest? We’ve got you covered – read along to find out the biggest mistake you can make:

 

Procrastination!

 

We are all guilty of procrastinating from time to time. It normally starts when you feel overwhelmed by the tasks before you. AP exams are no exception. When studying you have to rely on your memory to recall past chapters, concepts, and even equations. That’s a lot to take in – so how do you approach it? Don’t put it aside, approach it head on!

Often students feel so overwhelmed that instead of tackling the problem they put it off until they feel they have a plan to deal with it. In reality, this just allows the work to pile up to unmanageable levels. Like we said, face it head on because the longer you put it off the more overwhelming the work becomes. If you feel overwhelmed then break the work into smaller and more feasible steps. As you see yourself slowly complete each step it will give you a sense of confidence and next thing you know, those little steps add up! 

 Many students go into AP exams with the thought you can study for your AP exams as you would for any other exam. But, that is far from the truth! An AP exam covers a vast amount of information and your success is weighted against fellow students nationwide who are all fighting for those coveted college credits! The stakes are much higher than your average exam or even a final. This is why procrastination is the hugest mistake that students make. In order to truly succeed with your AP exams, you need to recall a class worth of information and be able to intuitively recall the information and apply it further through multiple choice and even essay questions.
