Everyone has done it. You forget you have a test last minute, or you just waited till test day then BOOM; the day we all dread is here. You try to cram in as much as possible in those last few minutes before you put what little knowledge you know to the test. It is stressful, and makes you want to scream, but actually cramming for a test is a lot worse than you think.

According to Aric Mitchell from blogs.4tests.com he explains how cramming for a test is not good for you at all. You are not supposed to commit to short-term memory concepts that are meant for the long-term. Cramming is not good for the brain because stuff that you want to remember for a long time is shoving into your brain too fast. Even if you do happen to remember some of it on the test and make a good grade, you most likely will not remember it in the long run.

“I study at night when I am more focused, and have more time” Bhavya Gupta (12) said.

This goes to show that studying the night before is more effective than cramming right before the test. You have more time to be focused and stay alert, and it is also more peaceful. Your brain is not fully awake in the morning so, you can be fully attentive when studying.

According to Oxford learning  there are many benefits of studying during the night. There are fewer distractions, more peace and quiet, a clearer mind for creative thinking, and sleeping after studying can consolidate information and improve recall. There are many advantages to being a Night Owl, and just staying up that extra hour to study, instead of the alternate. Cramming only hurts you in the long run, and does not benefit you in the long run.

There are different outlooks for different people though. “I have learned that studying right before a vocabulary quiz is not effective because I have failed every one of them by doing that” Maggie Haire (12) said.

For some people, studying is not that effective at all and some subjects are just hard for the brain to comprehend. Everyone is different when it comes to their brain and the way it functions.

“I can either study in the morning or at night, but studying at night seems to help me more” Brantley Moss (11) said.

Everyone’s results vary, and some people are different with what works best for them. It seems that studying at night is in the long run the most effective option, and according to research it is the best option.
