I've always struggled with this. Any pointers?

The way I do it is I study for half an hour on one subject and then take a break, and then study another half hour for the other subject. And then I just keep doing that. I'm really bad for studying on the day before the test, but that's when I do best :S

Back in grade 12 what usually ended up happening to me is that i would end up studying really hard for 1 test then it would be like 11 pm and then be like **** and cram for the second test.

I would just study one and then skip the other test, so that i can write it the next day which means you have more time to study the night before.

My worst nightmare..I usually end up trying to start studying for both subjects earlier than I usually do and studying harder for the course I care more about/worth more.

I don't mind having a jammed exam schedule. It makes me incredibly efficient and I find switching from subject to subject is a nice mental break.

This would definitely not fly at my school. Even if you say you're sick, most teachers will require that you present a doctor's note. How do you get away with it??

I've never had a teacher ask me for a doctor's note when I missed a test. Mind you, I don't skip my tests ALL the time. I've done so maybe five times in my high school life. All you need is an authorized note from your parent/guardian and you're set! Of course, it doesn't go that way if you miss an exam - that's when you need a doctor's note or an excuse such as the death of a family member.

yep yep, but here at my school, teachers are more reluctant, i can just walk into the classroom a day after the test and say i was sick or had an appointant, and the teacher will just arrange another day for me to write the test. FYI, its usually not the day i come back, usually 1-2 days later ;)

Nothing against you personally, but it's stuff like this that really makes me wonder when I see people on here posting that they have 100% in like 3 subjects.

I'll be the first one to admit that I really have to clean up my act for next year lmao. Honestly though, high school's a joke so it's nothing to question really.

Well, most of the time one of the two tests won't need much studying to ace, anyway. For example languages. I never study for Spanish (though I did need to study for English and French Lit, however, those aren't exactly qualified as "language" courses...) because what's there to study? It's all just reading and comprehension. When it comes to memorization, though, for example History-Geography, Social Studies, Bio, etc., these subjects should be your HIGHEST PRIORITY when it comes to studying. Otherwise you'll end up having to face an essay topic, let's say entitled "The Cold War 1947-1991" and you'll have absolutely no detailed background to write your damn exam!
So, study what you know least, is all I have to say.
