As a student we always dreamed of that successful life for the future. But in order to achieve that we need to be successful as a student and graduate with good grades. Listed below are some tips for you to achieve your dream successfully.
Be responsible and active
Responsibility is the difference between leading and being led. Active classroom participation improves grades without increasing study time. Successful students get involved in their studies, accept responsibility for their own education, and are active participants in it.
Set your educational goals
Successful students are motivated by what their goals represent in terms of career aspirations and life’s desires. Never settle of what you are right now strive for greatness!
Understand your Instructor
Successful students reflect well on the efforts of any teacher; if you have learned your material; the instructor takes some justifiable pride in teaching. Join forces with your instructor, they are not an enemy, you share the same interests, the same goals – in short, and you’re teammates.
Avoid sitting in the back
Successful students minimize classroom distractions that interfere with learning. Students want the best seat available for their entertainment dollars, but willingly seek the worst seat for their educational dollars. Of course, we know they chose the back of the classroom because they seek invisibility or anonymity, both of which are antithetical to efficient and effective learning.
Take good notes
Take notes that are understandable and organized, and review them often. The whole purpose of taking notes is to use them, and use them often. The more you use them, the more they improve.
AVOID CRAMMING IN EXAMS
Short, concentrated preparatory efforts are more efficient and rewarding than wasteful, inattentive, last moment marathons. You’ll learn more, remember more, and earn a higher grade by studying in four, one hour-a-night sessions for Friday’s exam than studying for four hours straight on Thursday night.
Be a time managers
Failure to take control of their own time is probably the no. 1 study skills problem for college students. It ultimately causes many students to become non-students! Procrastinators are good excuse-makers. Don’t wait until tomorrow to do it.
