Perfection is something that can never be achieved, but this does not stop people from trying to become perfect. When people find themselves in a situation where they have to do multiple things at one time, they can’t perfect every task because of the urgency. In the life of a student, there are multiple things that they start to do right from the morning.
If you are one, you might remember setting an alarm so that you can wake up for an important revision or study session, or even early morning class. Now add in all the video API, online classes, club activities, group study sessions, and even your life tasks. Wouldn’t you want to do all of this extremely carefully for the best result at the end of your semester? You can start by avoiding unnecessary instances, and making the best choice as per your mental and physical capacity.
Avoiding Unnecessary Challenging Situations
University students often misinterpret their situations and overestimate their capabilities. It makes them bite off more than what they can chew. You can find education counselors in multiple colleges for this exact reason so that a student can easily decide their major and minor subjects. One commonly made mistake is opting for 8:00 AM classes. It might sound completely absurd because all of you must be going to school at 7:00 or 8:00 AM at the same time, why then will you find it difficult to attend 8:00 AM classes in university or colleges? It is because your mind has clocked up to a different cycle now. You have much more things to do, and at the end of the day, some students might feel the need to have some personal time. Do you remember lying on the sofa for an hour not even noticing you have been scrolling mindlessly? Even if you aren’t spending your time, you must have assignments, homework, and a long list of things you would have to do.
After several busy classes during the day, all you are left with is the evening and the night. Extracurricular activities and subject revisions are automatically scheduled at this time by default, which makes you spend a lot of time in it without looking at the time. When you finish all of this, it is already too late. Now imagine having to set your alarm clock at 7:00 AM because you have to be in your class by 8:00 AM! This might not be the case for many students, but research proves how much university students don’t like attending 8:00 AM classes.
Schedule your classes as per the requirement, and remember that you do have an option. If you don’t, here are some tips to help you out;
Flashcards are not only educational but also fun because you can play them anytime you want while traveling or while sitting in a very boring class. At least we are studying something if you have a flashcard!
Making a mind map of the number of study materials you have, while in an offline class or video API, not only increases your capacity to remember things but also your concentration. You tend to remember things better, and the accuracy keeps on increasing. People who have excelled in making mind maps are great in mental mathematics, logical reasoning, critical thinking, and communication too!
A content table, index, or study planner is very useful if you cannot keep a track of how much you have to do for the day. When you are in college, the amount of workload is so overwhelming that often you miss out on things. All these assignments are urgent reminders unless you are in the class, and the teacher is asking for them. To avoid this situation, immediately note down your work in a particular notepad that is a part of your study material.
When you get back home and try to learn all the things included in your study materials, you might want to pretend that you are a teacher and explain the concept to yourself first. Although your university teachers have this important task when you make yourself understand something you tend to remember it better.
