4 Reasons to Stay Motivated for Finals During

The strangest semester of our lives is coming to a close, but there is one last obstacle. Finals from home!

It’s tempting to view this semester as a wash and go right into summer mode.

Don’t do that just yet!

Here are four great reasons why you should stay focused for just a short while longer and dominate your final exams.

1.  You’re paying for it either way.

College, High School, and Middle School students all are paying for their education one way or another. Whether it be cash to cover tuition or in time spent attending lectures and doing homework. The money and time for the class you’re in is gone. Make sure you finish strong and actually gain the knowledge and credit you’ve sacrificed to earn.

2. If you fail you have to retake the class.

Ever walk out of an exam feeling good only to get your grade back and see you bombed? This can happen on any test, especially if you have not prepared. If you fail your at home final you will have to retake the course, and do you really want to relive this semester again in the Fall?


3. Not learning the material will impact your future courses.

Say you’re usually an A student, but because you’re not so concerned about grades this semester you study much less than usual. That is fine and good — until next semester’s classes that build off of the material from your current course. If you don’t give Pre-calc your all, you will be dreadfully lost for calc next year. Remember, subjects are taught in a specific order because they build off one another, you have to master each topic before moving on.  If you don’t study, you can’t master the material, simple as that.

4. Your career depends on it.

We often lose sight that the entire purpose of school is to prepare you for a career. To be very much alarmist, if you don’t learn your class material simply because you are not as concerned about grades, you are hurting your ability to land and excel at your future job. If you’re planning on being a Chemist, but let the semester you take organic chem slide because of school closing, you are derailing your career path of becoming a competent chemist. Even if the course you are taking is not directly related to your anticipated career, the cross-disciplinary skills being taught still mater, especially as technology pushes more occupations to include a STEM focus.
