I know how boring it is to focus on the subject explained by lecturer. Gossiping with our friend about last night’s party sounds more interesting. But if you do that, you just scoot yourself away from high GPA. Both of our visual and auditory senses are extremely stimulated during classes. Thus, our brain can absorb information efficiently. You can’t get information acquired from discussion and Q&A session from books.

Make Time to Study

I know that studying while earning money in Gaekon sounds hard. But if you want get a perfect GPA, studying is a must. List your schedule for the whole day and try to spare some chances a day to study. I won’t recommend you to study for hours continuously. Instead, spare up to 5 chances a day, 1 hour long each to study.  This way, your brain won’t be “overheated” and can receive information more effectively.

When you discuss with your friends or engage in Q&A session in class, there will be so much information you won’t find in any books. And sometimes, this information is asked in the exams. So, stay focused and don’t forget to take notes on important things you find in classes.

Set Goals

Goals are essential to motivate ourselves to keep studying. But remember, set the goals you are able to reach, not the impossible one. If your current grade is B, try to aim for A- next semester. Aiming for A+ while your previous grade is D is too hard to accomplish.

    Some students think it’s a mark of pride to take as many hours as the college allows. It isn’t. Take four or at the most five courses each semester. And, unless you are very special, don’t take more than one major.
