As the end of the year comes closer and closer, people are cramming now more than ever.

AP exams, semester exams, quarter tests, AIR tests– students are overwhelmed with the amount of tests scheduled, not to mention end-of-the-year projects.

In response to that, students are coming up with ways to study and to relieve stress.

Group studying helps some students remain focused. If you work with other people who have the same goal as you, they can keep you on track, and help you with any questions.

Sophomore Morgan McAvoy believes studying with friends helps her get extra help and get more work done.

McAvoy said, “I prefer to study with a group because you can get ideas from the people you are working with that you might not have thought on your own.”

In contradiction, some students prefer to study alone. Studying with other people can distract them.

Sophomore Anita Pan is one of those students.

Pan said, “When studying with friends, it’s distracting. I also like to work at my own pace.”

The school year is coming to a close, but that does not mean that your goals should too. Keep focused, and finish the year strong.
