  5. Make sure to eat a well-balanced meal before your final – it’s never a bad idea to eat, but especially to eat and take a well-needed break
  6. Getting quality sleep – Staying up all night to study is never healthy! Make sure to sleep whenever its needed!
  7. Take breaks – This gives your brain a much-needed break and allows for your brain to retain the information
