Never Skip Class and Be Vocal

Listening and noting down lectures with full attention is the trick that most students use to perform better. You must also review what you have done on the very day for better understanding. Most teachers also base their tests on the topics they teach extensively in class. So if you want better grades, then you must not bunk classes. It will only make your life easier.

Plan Out your Week

We live in a rather fast life, with several things on our mind. Especially with the rise of social media, we are being fed information every single minute.

You must only remember what’is more important, this trick really comes in handy if you are making it a habit to study daily. Since you will make sure you revise the topics you have covered and also plan out fun activities with friends during your free time instead of just attending every party in the block.

Preferably, limit all social gathering for the weekends. Do the most urgent task first and actually stick to your goals.

Expand your network

The friendships and interactions that you will have during these years will most probably follow you to your workplace, if they stick to the career path. College alumni especially help out each other in workplaces, hence take this as an opportunity to socialize with everyone. Seniors, juniors and teachers alike to build a better survival rate at your future job.

Follow a routine

This trick will help you through the tough days when you have zero motivation to get out of the bed. A habit practiced for twenty-one days straight becomes more or less a subconscious activity. Try getting up at the same time daily in the morning without hitting the snooze button, it will not only give you a sense of achievement but also help you clock in more hours for the day.

Do not be too hard on yourself

College is all about new experiences and learning things. It may be overwhelming and you will make mistakes but do not punish yourself too much for it. Laugh, have fun and polish yourself, all within a fixed balance!
