People are going back to school soon and I’m seeing a lot of study help/masterposts on my dash aimed towards paper-based courses with emphasis on writing tips and essays. So I decided to make one for my STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering + Maths) brothers and sisters - with emphasis on facts, formulas and all that other left-brain goodness!

GENERAL STUDY TIPS
SCIENCE + MATHS
MUSIC
CHILL OUT [DO NOT USE WHILE ACTUALLY STUDYING]
BLOGS/WEBSITES
OTHER STUFF
  1. just try your hardest!! a fact i learned the hard way is that unfortunately, not everyone is going to get full marks on everything. so honestly just do your best and don’t beat yourself up because you aren’t top of the class. you worked your ass off and you should be proud of that.
  2. please please practice good self care in all forms. do light exercise where possible, don’t just eat fast food, get plenty of fruits and veggies and protein. PLEASE pay attention to your mental state and react accordingly. at the end of the day, nothing is worth putting you in any kind of hospital. talk to your teachers, counselors or tutors if you get stuck.
  3. if you have no other reason to take care of yourself, your grades will suffer if you don’t. (i’m adding this bc the only reason i didn’t develop a full-blown eating disorder during my exams was because i knew not eating would hinder my brain)
  4. lastly, your grades are not a reflection of your value as a person. this is important. lower grades do not make you a lesser being, and higher grades do not make you superior. everyone has strengths and weaknesses and grades are a shitty way of measuring them, but it’s what we’ve got.
