Some habits keep your performance down perpetually by serving as weight that prevents you from flying. Until you discard them, your academic performance will continually be on the ground level.
These habits are:
1) COMPLETING TASKS ONLY AT DEADLINE
A habit that limits students from reaching their full potential is giving in to PROCRASTINATION. The more you procrastinate, the less time you will be left with to complete a task. Completing tasks at deadlines reduces your chances of acquiring more knowledge and insight on a given subject. Furthermore, it makes your work shabby as you did the job in a rush.
2) NOT ALLOCATING QUALITY TIME FOR STUDYING
Your study life as a student determines the quality of your academic performance. Assigning quality time for studying gives you an advantage over other students. Furthermore, it boosts your academic performance. To improve your academic performance in this new session, edit your schedule and allot quality time for personal studies.
3) NOT ALLOCATING QUALITY TIME FOR REVISION.
Most students have little or no time they apportion to revise what they learned in a day or a week. Revision is a great way to move something from your short-term memory to your long-term. You also understand the lesson better when you allocate time to revise at the end of the class or preferably at the end of the day.
4) READING ONLY FOR EXAMINATIONS
One terrible habit students are known for is, engaging in studying fully when examinations are around the corner. This results in using ineffective techniques like cramming which affects the students’ performance during and after the examination.
To perform excellently in your academics, reading should be your everyday culture not just what you do to pass your examination.
5) PASSIVENESS DURING CLASS
Not participating actively in class also affects your performance. Students who volunteer to answer questions in school and make contributions in class always perform well excellently. Do away with passiveness and be more committed in class to be more successful academically.
This habit is detrimental to the student’s academic performance because it steals focus from the student. After all, you will be working on three or more activities concurrently and end up not accomplishing any of them very well. To boost your academic performance, drop multitasking and learn the power of concentrated effort.
Distraction is the greatest enemy of academic excellence. Everyone comes to the school environment with the intention of learning and graduating with flying colors. However, something happens in between that makes students lose focus of their goal and purpose of being in school. If you are going to have academic excellence in this new academic session, get rid of distractions. Cut down the number of times you spend on screen and cut down relationships with parasitic friends.
