Top Five Mistakes Students Make and How to Avoid Them

Students need life coaches to guide them and educate them through school years and life. They rely on teachers and parents for love, guidance and self confidence. School years offer fun and excitement which make them forget the real purpose of being at school.

Students make many mistakes during school years that harm their academic progress and consequently their career. A few common mistakes made by young students are here with some tips on how to avoid them.

Tip 1: Poor study habits: Many students do not listen to classroom lectures or participate in classroom activities. They often dislike textbook reading or note-taking. They do not plan out a study schedule. Listening carefully to classroom lectures increases knowledge and makes exam preparation easier; a well planned schedule helps improve academic progress.

Tip 2: Missing classes and enjoying anonymity: Students enjoy remaining out of the classroom and having fun with their mates. In certain cases they prefer remaining inconspicuous in the classroom. Attending classes and participating in the classroom work is a very good way to learn the course material. Getting acquainted with the lecturer or professor might ensure help in times of need. Building positive relationships all round may prove to be very useful in the long term.

Tip 3: Opting for the wrong subjects: One reason for dissatisfactory academic progress can be inappropriate subject choice. Students do not want to study the subjects they find difficult or have no interest in. Therefore interest and aptitude must be considered while making choices for the fields of study.

Tip 4: Being disorganized: Many students do not care for timely submissions of assignments and suffer penalties on forgetting test dates. Keeping papers and notes organized, and a record of due dates for tests and assignments might help.

Tip 5: Showing irresponsibility: Some students do not exhibit behavior of responsibility towards their education. They must understand the need to work hard to have a better career and life. A small investment today, can reap a lifetime of rewards in the future.

How poorly or well the students perform at school determines their future probability of success and happiness. By avoiding these mistakes the students can have a dramatic change in their academic progress.

All the best,
