Ramadan is a time for family, friends, and reflection. That is, until you realize your exams are going to happen while you’re fasting. Balancing both can be a challenge so we’ve compiled a list of tips that’ll help you balance fasting and acing exams…
Force yourself to get up early in the morning
It’s tempting to just stay in bed all day. Force yourself to get up and be productive. It’s the only way you’re going to get anything done.
Have Sohour as early as possible
It might sound like a bad idea because you’ll be fasting for a longer period of time, but that way you can go to bed earlier and have more time to study the next morning when you’re still fresh.
Set up a study schedule
Don’t lose track of time. Know exactly what you’ll be doing at what times in order to avoid wasting time.
Have a healthy Iftar
It’s important to have as much energy as possible for when you’re studying and taking the exam.
Avoid mosalsalat at all costs
We all know with mosalsalat, one you start, you can’t stop. Avoid them at all costs if you don’t want to end up devoting your time to keeping up with Nelly Karim’s latest shenanigans. Catch up all you want once you’re done with exams.
Accept that you won’t be fully functional at all times
Your body simply runs out of energy after a while. Accept the fact that you won’t be as focused as you usually are.
Embrace the challenge and know that you can handle it
You’re just a few exams away from freedom. At least for the summer, that is.
WE SAID THIS: Good luck on your exams ya gama3a!
