Have a sense of time management. Such sayings as “opportunity once lost can never be regained”, “make hay while the sun shines” and Scriptures like “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest” (Proverbs 6:6-8) should constitute a jingle that keeps echoing and re-echoing in the heart of students throughout the period of their academic pursuit.
Students who are in boarding houses may have more organised schedules and therefore should use their prep time efficiently. Do your assignments, revise the day’s teachings and review your notes in preparation for the subjects to be taught the next day. Make necessary corrections in your notes and fill up words that were missed out. At the end of each day, you are better equipped on the topics.
For the day-student, he has to remember that time may not actually be on his side given that his study schedule may be punctuated with domestic chores and errands at home, and unplanned interruptions (traffic jam, power failures, etc.) For this reason, the day-student needs to be more focused, determined and disciplined to, as much as possible, follow his study schedule. This might also mean staying up a little late into the night or waking up a little earlier. Sometimes, endeavouring to be in school some 30 or 45 minutes before the Assembly period to study, put finishing touches to assignments that could not be completed at home and preparing for the new day’s lectures will definitely put the student in a better academic shape.
Use any free period in between classes to review the last teaching or the next one just before the teacher arrives. It should never be a time for gossip, idling or chatting away the time. Avoid procrastination.
