Is it possible to do homework with pleasure? Most of the pupils or students will say, “Definitely not!” Well, today I’ll try to convince you of the opposite. I’ll tell you my story and let you decide whether my experience is suitable for you.
As a high school student, I never understood why we had to spend so much time on studying at classes and on school related tasks, or as we all call it, homework, after classes. Since I’m not a person who follows standard rules, I decided to create my own. I think they proved to be successful as after four years of “hard” work at school I was one of the best students in my class. These rules have also helped me at the university, so if you are any kind of student you are welcomed to use them.
Rule #1. Divide all the subjects into important and unimportant. There must be only two, or maximum three subjects you will pay most of your attention to. I am not saying you should neglect all the others, but they will definitely be out of your priorities. Of course, the important subjects should be only those you enjoy studying, and, on the contrary, all the classes you hate may be considered less valuable.
Rule #2. Let others do the tasks you don’t like. I rarely did assignments for my unimportant subjects, instead, I used writing services. I ordered papers or presentations long beforehand, so, they were cheap, and I had enough time to check them and send on revision if needed. I also always reread them to be able to answer the questions in case teachers asked.
Rule #3. Make the teachers understand that you intend to get a straight A. For my important subjects I had a goal to get only A’s for each assignment. Any time I would get less than excellent, I’d go to a teacher and ask for a private consultation on the previous task. Usually, such work on my mistakes lasted more than an hour. I asked lots of questions and tried to find out how the teacher evaluates assignments. As a rule, after one or two meetings like this, any professor understood that it was in his best interests to give mean A.
Rule #4. Use only essential information and learn from the best. In the process of my research paper writing, I haven’t read a single book from cover to cover. How is it possible? Well, I didn’t say I haven’t read books at all, I just read only the chapters I needed. So it was with articles. I skipped introductory parts and read only the essentials. Plus, I looked for the similar researches that had been already done by other scientists and wrote them e-mails, asking for their opinions and advice. Trust me, the tips some of them gave me were priceless.
