Ace Every Exam: ADHD Study Tips for Math, Essay, and Multiple-Choice Tests
ADHD students dread the pressure and information overload of final exams. Use these specific tips to prepare wisely for and ace all of your multiple-choice, math, and essay tests at school.
Some teachers allow students to bring a study sheet into the exam room. Here’s how to assemble one:
- Prepare the sheet days in advance, as you’re studying the material, not the night before.
- Write down general ideas as well as names, dates, and formulas— the specifics we often overlook.
- Type up the study sheet in Microsoft Word or Excel, using an extra-small font to get as much information on the page as you can.
- Consider adding color, icons, or graphics to make the most important information stand out.
