Your very own Carleton Ravens Mascot is coming in clutch to provide you with his Top 5 Tips To Survive University Midterms.

Tip #1 Break a Sweat First. 

According to Dr. Douglas B. McKeag, exercising shortly before studying (perhaps at our Fitness Centre), can make you more alert, open, and able to learn new information.

Tip #2 Print = Success. 

Students require more repetition to learn new material when reading on a computer screen. Stick to paper. It’s in science.

Tip #3 Move Around. 

Psychologist Robert Bjork suggests that merely moving to a different room to study or into the great outdoors can increase both your concentration and retention levels.

Tip #4 Listen to Music.

Tip #5 Relax. 

Stress lasting as briefly as a couple of hours can engage corticotropin-releasing hormones that disrupt the process of creating and storing memories. Take a deep breath; you’re doing great.
