AP Test Week 2019

As April comes to a close, something daunting looms in the misty mornings of the beginning of May — AP week. After bravely signing up for the hardest classes offered in the school, AP students will now be forced to face the consequences of their reckless decisions. Thanks to one of the biggest, longest-running Ponzi schemes in the United States, AKA College Board, thousands of students will suffer through 2 weeks of testing on May 6th – 17th in hopes to earn college credits.

These tests are long. These tests are hard. These tests cover months of the most rigorous high school curriculum in the country. However, if approached correctly, they are survivable. Follow these important pieces of advice and you will succeed to the best of your ability through these two strenuous weeks.

  • Go to bed early

It’s not worth it to stay up late the night before the test cramming months of material into your fatigued brain, only to wake  up the next day too exhausted to even think straight, never mind take a test. A good night’s sleep will enable your brain to function to the best of its cognitive abilities, instead of being distracted as you constantly try to shake yourself awake while testing.

  • Eat breakfast

We all know the kid who’s stomach won’t stop making noises during the test in what would be an otherwise silent classroom. DON’t let THIS be YOU. It’s distracting and embarrassing for yourself, and will inhibit you from performing to the best of your abilities. Eat a good breakfast with protein, such as oatmeal, peanut butter toast, or sausage, and you will be able to focus much easier.

  • Study

It’s easier said than done, but it will help.
