Does the new year make you get your life together too? Well, then let’s not waste more time and really make it work 2020! Here are my Top 5 Study Tips for Better Grades in 2021.
1. Set Reachable (and Small) Goals
It will be hard to achieve goals without having any!
Once you have your study goal written down, it is important to break it down into smaller, reachable goals.
That’s for the sole purpose of you not freaking out when you look at your goal and never get started!
If your study goal is to get an A on at least half of your finals, you need to break that down into small goals.
Those could be to go to class regularly, study a certain amount of time each week, or to get A’s on small assignments.
Those small “changes” (that’s relative) can make a big impact on your final goal.

2. Go to Class
Yeah, this study tip is pretty obvious, but it also just belongs to the Top 5!
How do you want to get good grades if you don’t go to class?
I get it, it is tempting to just stay in bed or party. But you don’t pay all those tuition fees to fail classes! So come on and go to class!
3. Take breaks
It’s okay not to study all day every day. If you are on a good track, take time off for fun stuff, you deserve it!
Also, try to not spend your interval study breaks with your phone. Try to go outside, drink water, read a book you enjoy, or do some exercising.
That will help your brain to get focused again after the break.
4. Get Help
If you feel like you don’t understand something, ask!
And if you struggle with specific topics, it is okay to get help!
You won’t be good in every single subject. That is normal! Just make sure you stay on track with the classes, and everything will be okay.
Professors are there to help you, so use that to your advantage and don’t struggle with a problem too long.
5. Be persistent
If you don’t work for your goal, you won’t achieve it! Try to stick to your schedule and get your work done before doing other things on your to-do list.
Try to prioritize your study sessions and stick to your plans. It is worth it, I promise!
Talking about persistency, maybe just delete the word ‘procrastination’ in your mind altogether. It really helps.
I know this post is a little shorter than usual, but I kinda just wanted to share the most important study tips for better grades instead of rambling around.
I hope it helped you!
