Finals and the last few weeks leading up to it are one of the time student dread for the most during the semester. Sure, Spring semester is almost over and Summer is just around the corner but it’s a time where we are overload with feelings of stress, anxiety and frustration. Everything is on the line when it comes to final exams or projects and usually they are worth more than half your grade.
