5 Reasons Why You Should Not Wait Last Minute To Study

If you have an upcoming test, study as soon as possible and don’t cram for the exam!

5 Reasons Why You Should Not Wait Last Minute To Study

Have you ever felt the urge of wanting to study when you can, but then you keep telling yourself that you “will do it tomorrow” and constantly repeat the same thing until the next day is when your exam day has arrived? When you are studying, the one thing that gets in your obstacle is time. Fortunately for me, I do not have this issue, and therefore I am usually successful in achieving good grades. This article is meant to help those who have trouble finding the perfect time to study and tend to wait last minute, thus resulting in grades you don’t want. Here are five reasons as to why you should not study last minute:

1. Cramming for an exam leads to confusion, resulting in anger, anxiety, and a mental breakdown.

2. You can never really remember all the information you crammed into your head.

3. You are risking your grades.

4. Sometimes one sacrifices his or her sleeping time just to study for an exam. This can lead to the individual being tried on test day and not being as productive as he or she should be.

5. If you study earlier and study portions of your notes, then you have a higher chance of getting the grade that is rewarding. People generally learn best when they keep a consistent study schedule.

If last minute cramming is the ONLY solution you have, then, by all means, go for it. But if you do have any extra time, then you’re better off studying as early as possible the moment you find out when your exam is. If you're lucky, last minute cramming may result in a good grade, like this guy:

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
