Today’s post is all about great study habits in college that will help you earn good grades!
Let’s get started…
- Always go to class: Sounds easy, but trust me, you’d be surprised. Even if it’s cold or you’re tired, always make the effort to show up to class. You’ll miss a lot if you aren’t there- plus, attendance points.
- Stay on top of assignments: Always keep track of due dates and exams so you’re never surprised. Checking the syllabi regularly is a good habit!
- Ask questions: If you’re ever unsure about something, it’s always a good idea to either email your professor or go to office hours and ask.
- Take good notes: Writing things down yourself will help you retain information better.
- Develop a study schedule: Start preparing for an exam a week or two before. Making study guides really helps!
- Be an active learner: It took me until college to figure out that sitting at a desk and staring at your notes is not a helpful study technique. Use flashcards, take practice tests, or form a study group to keep you more engaged!
- Have other hobbies: Part of being successful is avoiding burnout. Find an on-campus job, an intramural sports team, or a fun hobby that will give you a break from academics every now and then.
- Read the textbook: If you are assigned reading for homework, read it (at the very least, skim it!) before you go to class.
- Correct past mistakes: It’s important that if you miss a question on a test, you revisit it and figure out where you went wrong. This will ensure you won’t miss it again on a future test!
- Stay positive: If you are doing your best and preparing well for exams, you have every reason to feel confident. Imagine yourself reaching your goals!
Best of luck to you! You can do it! 🙂
