I would be sharing 10 tips in this article on how you can be a successful student;
1. SET GOALS
Set realistic goals that you can meet at the beginning of every semester, don’t be too ambitious when setting your goals, it’s not only about the grades but you can also set goals towards taking some extra classes
2. MEET PEOPLE AND GET INVOLVED IN ACTIVITIES
We all need friends in this journey called life and also as a student, you need a support system and try to attend programs happening on campus, join clubs or organizations.
Have a study group, have friends you can read and study together, work on assignments together as well.
3. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS
Being successful with your academic requires that you accept and take responsibility for your action, no one can do that for you. People around you can only support and guide you towards achieving your goal but the responsibility is yours to take. Be an advocate for your education.
4. USE THE TECHNOLOGY
There are a lot of online materials and resources that you can harness to be a better student, make good use of the technology to further broaden and expand your knowledge on what has been taught in class initially.
5. ATTEND CLASSES AND TAKE NOTES
Except you are sick, always ensure you attend classes because class attendance also affects students’ grades, ensure you are always in class because there are some things your lecturers might mention that won’t be in your friend’s note or in the material that would be given after the class. Never miss classes, participate, ask question. Be an active listener in class. Always make a good impression when you are in class, be actively involved in every class activity.
Ensure you take note as well, don’t just attend classes without writing
HAVE A SCHEDULE
Time management is crucial for you as a student, create a schedule weekly that involves each of your activities and make sure nothing distracts you from the schedule you have set out for yourself.
BE AN ACTIVE STUDENT
An active student is the one that reads extensively, has his own study guides and practices on his own too, has and reviews his own note as well.
NEVER MISS OUT ON DOING ASSIGNMENTS
You don’t need to have people reminding you about your assignments every now and then. Let your assignments always be at the top of your mind, never miss out on doing them. And don’t procrastinate on doing them, do them as soon as it is given.
Have a study routine that can help you improve your academic performance. A time that you can set aside to read your books and review your notes. This will better make you prepare in advance for every one of your classes and you will still have free time to do other things.
HAVE TIME FOR EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
School is not only about studying alone. Have time to hang out with friends. Always study hard to get good grades and also look for ways to take care and reward yourself.
To be successful, ensure you adequately follow the tips above.
