|Top Ten College Tips
The next tip on the Top Ten College Tips is to do what you can to prevent from falling behind. Falling behind can be very easy because the pace of college classes is very fast and the demands from juggling multiple classes can be very challenging.
Doing what you can to not fall behind is important for two reasons. First, many classes will teach material that builds on the information previous provided. For example, chapter two is built on concepts and terminology introduced in chapter one. When this is the case, if you do not completely understand chapter one, it may be difficult for you to keep up when you get to chapter two. Math, science, and business are examples of the classes that typically utilize a structure where the material continues to build.
Another reason to not fall behind is that it can have an impact on your performance on exams. The reason why is that if you fall behind the pace of the class, you will either need to catch up at some point or you will stay behind. If you get on a schedule where you are playing catch up, it is likely that your studying will not coincide with the lecture where the material is being discussed, which will decrease what you are able to get out of the lectures. In addition, if you have to catch up, it is likely that you will be trying to absorb the information in a smaller amount of time. This can put you in a less favorable position to grasp and understand the material. This all adds up to a decrease in the ability to get the best possible scores on an exam.
Below are some college tips that can help you to prevent falling behind.
• Attend class: Missing a class is the easiest way to fall behind. Not only do you miss valuable lecture discussion on the subject, but you can miss assignments as well.
Following these college tips should help you to stay with the pace of the class, which will have an immediate impact on your academic performance.
