You have worked hard all semester. So, why not adopt a winning attitude and set high goals for yourself? If you doubt your ability to do well on exams, you might fear that you will earn poor grades even after studying intensely. During this last week of exams, do not allow yourself to be distracted from studying as a defensive mechanism to blame low grades on disruption of your study schedule. Help avoid this trap by remembering that your value as a human being is not measured by your performance on law school exams. By placing your study of law in proper perspective, you can moderate the pressure, freeing yourself to perform your best. No one will fault you if you spare no effort to do your best, even if the results fall short of your expectations. On the other hand, what a shame it will be if you squeak by after defensively limiting your opportunities to do well, and then spend your time wondering how much better you could have done had you pulled out all the stops.
Approach this final week of exam preparation with all the dedication and enthusiasm you can muster, and try to visualize success on your exams. You are more likely to rise to the top if you reach for the stars than if you stare at the ground in anticipation of defeat. Adapted from Law School Exams, Preparing and Writing to Win by Charles Calleros.
