Are you worried about a big test or quiz coming up? Are you biting off all of your fingernails? Losing sleep? Losing your mind? Well no worries! The GEM Sisters have 10 tips so you can do your best!
- Ask the teacher if you don’t get it. Got a math test coming up but don’t know how 4×4 equals 16? Ask the teacher. Don’t know which lip gloss brings out your eyes more? Ask the…well, maybe don’t ask the teacher that one. ??
- Practice, practice, practice! Whether it’s spelling words or doing math problems, keep practicing. The more you do it, the easier it becomes! Mercedes will tell you, “I practice taking selfies everyday!” ???
- Get your sibling, friend or parent to be your pretend teacher and give you a practice test. Make believe tests help you feel better when the real one comes. BUT if your pretend teacher starts demanding an apple, drinking coffee, and ask that you call them by their last name, then maybe they’re taking it too far! ?
- Make flash cards. Read the question on the front of the card, say the answer out loud and check your answer on the back of the card to see if you were right. It’s fun, easy, and no one judges you if you get them all wrong.
- Have a good night’s sleep. While you’re sleeping, your brain will keep working to remember all the things you studied! Giselle especially will tell you, “I need my sleep!” ?
- Eat breakfast. During the test the loud growl of your tummy might be distracting! Evangeline always says, “I can’t think without a snack!”
- Reward yourself. Tell yourself there’s gum in it for you after a hard study session. Or treat yourself to a YouTube video when you’re done.
- Bring an extra pencil or two. In case yours breaks, gets lost or the nose picker next to you asks to borrow one! ✏️✏️
- Ask the teacher if something on the test is not clear. Don’t understand a question on the test? Raise your hand and ask the teacher. Just don’t ask for the answer!
- Don’t forget your name! When you get your test, write your name first. How else would the teacher know it’s you who got that A+? ?
