You get paranoid. Like playing an intense violent kill-or-be-killed video game. Once you get in that mindset, you think in terms of survival and what you need to do to survive and kill the enemy.
Now, what this means us that you don't think in dry factual terms like "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492." but begin to think like the teacher as in "If I was him/her, what sort of questions would I ask on an exam for my students?" Once you do that, then you have problems to solve and you solve them. This is studying. But, it is also a confidence builder and, subconsciously, you are getting positive feedback - like "runners high" - and you keep going. Then, when you later do well on the exam, you keep up that method of studying.
This mentality can take you far in life.1

i just think of the assessments and how this prep I'm doing is going to help me when the deadline comes closer. i perform better under pressure but i HATE leaving everything to the last minute.
as i know what that stress feels like, i tell myself that I'm not gonna put myself through that, and if i just do 1-4 hours a day then I'm set.1
