Since your current school load will likely coincide with your exam preparations, managing your schedule can be a little tricky. But don't worry. With proper time management, you don't have to sacrifice one responsibility for another. The key is to set a specific review schedule and remain faithful to it. For example, weekdays are set for school work and weekends are strictly for college test review. It's up to you to choose the schedule that would be convenient for you. Just make sure that you follow through! Remember, success takes a lot of hardwork and commitment.
