You will be hearing quite a few times in college that your GPA does not matter and is only important regarding campus placements.

 

Please flush this piece of advice from your mind, as it ain’t gonna do you the least bit of good. While GPA is not everything – it sure is extremely important – and will have an impact in your professional life – at least it will make being successful incredibly difficult. Employers, graduate schools, competitive research programmes all expect a great GPA.  so having an average GPA sets back your aspirations and a low GPA can derail them.

 

This essay will share some tips on how to score straight A’s on exams .

 

Complete All Assignments On Time : Believe it or not – handing out assignments on time is very important if you want to maintain a good GPA. Dont slack off on your projects – it will cost you – and you will be ending up with a C or worse. This will have a direct impact on your aggregate. Moreover being unable to complete assignments on time means that you are not disciplined and insincere – this will turn the professors against you – and they might be loath to give you decent scores in exams – even if you write good content.

 

Read the Textbook Before Class : This is a great way to familiarize yourself with the content. You will also be able to grasp better what is being taught in class – and also be able to make a good impression on the teacher.

 

Be Regular : This one is obvious. Be a regular. Even on days when you just don’t feel like going – when you feel like lazing about or going out partying. Most of the teachers actually share important questions and hints – which will be important for upcoming exams. Also a regular student will be able to win good impression of the teacher – and this will help you breeze the internals.

 

Take Notes : Note down everything the faculty dictates. Come back home and go through the notes – to clear doubts . List the questions you have – to be addressed to the professor in private later on.

Consult Past Papers : Most universities often repeat questions and give out similar questions – so researching past papers will give you a good idea of the pattern, the questions you can expect and important modules you need to prioritize on.

 

Be Regular : By that we don’t mean study for 12 hours daily. But study  3 to 4 hours after college, use holidays judiciously to catch up on the reading list provided by the teachers. Consistency is the key to a perfect GPA.

 

Avoid All Nighters : Yes! Research and recent surveys have proved that conducting all nighters to study – actually does more harm than good. So please do ensure you get a good hours of sleep. Instead of cramming mindlessly. Go through everything you have learnt, at least once a day. Regular revision will ensure that you come out with flying colours!.
