Advising Right Now: Finals Preparation

Your advisees should check the Final Examination Schedule to find out when and where final exams will be held. The Registrar's Office contacts students if they have a scheduling conflict between two or more final exams.

You should remind your advisees to check the Final Examination Schedule ahead of time and then again prior to finals week to make sure there have not been any changes. This will give students enough time to plan their studies without undue stress.

The MIT Center for Academic Excellence (ACADEX) offers extensive information on effective test-taking strategies including details on how to approach final exams, developing a study plan, tackling different styles of tests, and managing test anxiety.
