5 Ways Girl Can Get A-grades without Effort on the Freshman Year

Graduates often complain that they spent the rest of their college years trying to recover from the damage caused to their GPA in the first semester. And the reasons?are clear. Freshman students tend to approach college with the same mentality used throughout their high school years. The new structure of learning experience and the feeling of freedom catch them off guard.

Neither professors nor parents keep a check on students? learning process and attendance. Undisciplined learners miss 8 a.m. classes and party too much. Of course, most students pull themselves together when they see their grades for the first semester. Those, that don't fail out.

If you're going to college, prepare beforehand. The following steps suggested by my EssayService colleagues will help you to ace your freshman year:

1. Capture

You must perform a full capture, smart organizing and regular review of all your student?s obligations. This includes both the academic (paper writing deadlines, test dates) and the administrative (extracurricular involvements activities) duties.

A clear picture of everything you have to complete can confuse you. But it is vital for taking control over your college life. This information is a base for planning.

2. Plan

There are two types of college students. The first one is exhausted by their workload, always running from one approaching deadline to another. The second type organizes work with intelligent scheduling. For your own sake, become one of the latter.

Control your schedule. In the short term: make daily lists of assignments to complete. In the long term: divide complex projects into smaller tasks and subtasks. For example, you need to write an essay by Thursday. Create a draft on Monday, get a final version on Tuesday, and check it on mistakes on Wednesday.

3. Be Responsible

Professors treat you like the adult that you are. They expect you to be independent and proactive about getting things done. You are only responsible for yourself. Avoid procrastination.

Don't get misled by college study experience. Your class may meet a few times a week. So the free days in between are leisure ones, right? Wrong! Every hour spent in the classroom presupposes 2-3 hours of preparation.?It's not the professors/ business to push students to study. They won't come to your rescue if a gradebook indicates a problem or remind you to write an assignment by the deadline. It's up to you!

4. Study Consistently

Review material every day. It might seem a time-consuming or daunting task. But it will give you a great advantage during an exam preparation. Why? Try to recollect something that happened the day before yesterday? The week before? The month before? Three months before? Well, our recall fades with time.

The same is true for class information. Usually, the further material in the semester requires that you absorb the earlier material first. Regular review of material helps you stay on top of the material, keep you prepared for classes, and make reviewing for the exams less overwhelming.

5. Evolve

Your set of study habits helped you to get through your high school study successfully. But they are not enough to survive and thrive your college freshman year. Embrace this.

Develop new learning strategies. Constantly evaluate and modify them. Leave those that are ineffective. Try new techniques to solve complex questions. After every assignment or test, ask yourself: What helped me to succeed? What could I do better and faster?

This Darwinian approach will help you evolve your study habits to a new learning environment. The process of evaluation and alteration is the best way to create your perfect learning approach.

Every day of college counts. Students that tank their freshmen year will be beating themselves up when senior year rolls around and they can do nothing to fix their GPA. Get started right!?

and how does all of that equal no effort?? LOL
