Preparing for Finals Week: Making a Study Schedule

Manage your time over the last two weeks of the semester and during finals week with these time management grids>>. On each of the schedules for the two weeks prior to finals week, indicate:

  • Class times
  • Organization Times or Practices
  • Meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
  • Work
  • Ideal Sleep
  • Workout time
  • “Personal Time”
  • Study Blocks for assignments due before Finals Week

Once you've identified empty blocks of time, prioritize when to begin studying for finals. Repeat this process throughout the 2 Weeks before Finals Week Grid, the Week before Finals Week Grid, and Finals Week Grid as well.

Building your Four-Year Academic Plan

The Four-Year Plan is used to help first-year students in their UNV classes to plan for their academic progression throughout their coursework at Mercer.  The Four-Year Plan allows students to outline their transfer credit, general education requirements, major and minor coursework, and pre-professional goals while recognizing what should be achieved each semester as they work toward graduation requirements. Download, save, build, and edit your electronic copy of your Academic Plan>>.
