And it won’t be long before you find yourself logging onto your college’s web site, entering in your password, and opening up that link that posts those ominous words:
But while grades are obviously important, the bigger picture is that grades and courses are meant to help you develop positive habits of study and thinking that you can take with you the rest of your life.
So while you can’t open that web page with your final grades just yet, you can see how you did this semester when it comes to developing those positive study habits.
And since Study Tipping Tuesday will be on hiatus until the fall semester (lots of other exciting things to come in the summer, though), let’s see how you did with your study habits.
Review the questions below and honestly evaluate yourself. Your answers to these questions will correlate pretty well with your final grades.
- Did you work on your core?
- Did you get organized and build a filing system?
- Did you overcome the all-nighter and make the most of your early mornings?
- Did you prepare your presentations?
- Did you build a task list?
- Did you make test review work for you?
- Was time on your side?
- Did you work on developing the little habits?
And as you look back on this semester and look forward to the next, I hope you'll commit to improving your study habits every day.
Because success requires continuous effort.
And you deserve that success – so get pumped up and go get it!
