Use the Internet to your Advantage:
You can expand your knowledge about any even course with the aid of the internet. The internet contains billions of articles, videos, and images that could give you a practical insight into whatever course you do.
Use the Library to your Advantage:
Libraries found in colleges or universities were not just built for librarians to think about their lives. Libraries are integral parts of the university or college systems that are built to help promote your learning subsequently aiding you to score really good marks in university or college.
Regularly Do your Assignments:
Ace your exams with really outstanding marks and don’t do assignments, not even one and you are in for a “D” at the end of it all. Assignments are crucial to your academic success. You want good grades, then consistently doing assignments is a necessity.
Consult the internet, libraries, experts, friends who are knowledgeable enough, etc. Regularly do assignments and I can guarantee you an “A” in your final result.
Use your Imaginations to your Advantage:
You may say “I am not among the top students in class because I am not that good in reading and assimilating”. However such saying is wrong, your brain is powerful enough to accommodate whatever knowledge you desire to know. If this wasn’t so, you won’t be able to identify quickly the innumerable things you know like the sun, moon, stars, antelope, David, James, fridge, wordings, days of the week, months of the year, innumerable memories, etc.
How do you think your brain accommodated this myriad of knowledge without having to forget them all. The answer to that simple question is “Imagination”. Your imaginations were involved when you were directly or indirectly gaining acquaintance with the billions of knowledge you now know. The same method is also applicable to reading. Open up your imagination while reading and you would be surprised how things you read would be so easy to remember when writing exams or tests.
Understand Yourself/ Adjust to your Body Language:
You must have probably met people who would tell you things like “Reading is the night hours is mostly effective” or “Spend not less than 10 hours or more on reading” and so many other reading philosophies. It isn’t a crime to read for 20 hours straight, that is if your body system allows it but if your body system disagrees, you are in for a shock! Truth is, you won’t make any real progress.
If your body language permits you to read all through the night then sacrifice the night but if it doesn’t, do not do this.
Know what is best for you and maximize your effort!
