There are two popular ways to study for the final exams, each of which is totally up to you to choose or follow. I will call them

A) the F and D student's strategy

B) the A+ student's strategy.

The following are the strategy and you can see the effects of each in terms of your preparation time.

A) The F and D student's strategy

Exam Schedule   Study Schedule   Time (in hours) allocated to study subject before exam each day
Week Day Date Time Course   Study Start Time to exam   IAS xxx ICS xxx PETE 11x PETE 12x STAT 319 PETE 13x Total
16 Saturday 20-Jan 7pm IAS xxx   IAS xxx 18-Jan 2 days   3 0 0 0 0 0 3
16 Monday 22-Jan 10am ICS xxx   ICS xxx 20-Jan 2 days     3 0 0 0 0 3
16 Wednesday 24-Jan 7am PETE 11x   PETE 11x 22-Jan 2 days       3 0 0 0 3
17 Saturday 27-Jan 10am PETE 12x   PETE 12x 24-Jan 3 days         3 0 0 3
17 Sunday 28-Jan 7pm STAT 319   STAT 319 27-Jan 1 days           3 0 3
17 Monday 29-Jan 7am PETE 13x   PETE 13x 28-Jan 0.5 days             3 3
          Total study Time before exam   6 6 6 9 3 1.5  

Notice that 3 hours of studying is spent starting from Jan 18 but PETE13x did not get enough preparation time before the final exam. PETE 12x got the most preparation time but students usually underestimate their worrying level goes up closer to the exam. So, how much of the 3 hours spent is devoted to studying and how much devoted to worrying about the exams/grades is uncertain and depends on the individual students.

B) The A+ student's strategy

          Study Schedule   Time (in hours) allocated to study subject before exam each day
Day Date Time Course   Study Start Time to exam   IAS xxx ICS xxx PETE 11x PETE 12x STAT 319 PETE 13x Total
Saturday 20-Jan 7pm IAS xxx   IAS xxx 10-Jan 10 days   0.75 0.5 0.25 0.25 0.25 0.25 2.25
Monday 22-Jan 10am ICS xxx   ICS xxx 10-Jan 12 days     1 0.5 0.5 0.25 0.25 2.5
Wednesday 24-Jan 7am PETE xxx   PETE 11x 8-Jan 16 days       1 0.5 0.5 0.5 2.5
Saturday 27-Jan 10am PETE xxx   PETE 12x 10-Jan 17 days         1.5 0.5 0.5 2.5
Sunday 28-Jan 7pm STAT 319   STAT 319 10-Jan 18 days           1.5 1 2.5
Monday 29-Jan 7am PETE xxx   PETE 13x 10-Jan 18.5 days             2.5 2.5
        Total study Time before exam   7.5 7 7.5 7 7 7.75  

Notice that only 2.5 hours of studying is spent starting from Jan 10 and all subjects get enough preparation time before the final exam. This schedule is better and from my own student-life experience, this tend to give better results as you are (1) well prepared and (2) confident of your preparation level. So, you will spend less time worrying during your exam whether or not you are prepared for your next exam.

Also, very importantly, the more amount of time you devote to studying for your test is highly correlated with your test performance.For example, if you spend 4 hours a day studying using the A+ student's strategy , you can expect better results.
