This one is sort of based on a true story.
I remember that before getting into College, Exams were seen as something really hard and terrible. Pretty much something you’d foccus all your energies on. I know a few people who actually started studying long long before they come – not only they did study pretty much everyday, they also studied with one or two months in advance for the exams.
I don’t think that’s even healthy. Not that it guarantees good results either. I personally am not the studying type (for some things).
On the other hand, after getting into College, the difference is tremenduous. During the first year you’ll still see people trying to study with a few months in advance… Only to notice there’s just too many things to work on and then notice the exams are but a few weeks away. But I know some cases where people actually try to keep the same habbits and not all of them are successful. I sorta of started studying for real only after getting in College and I can’t tell I was proud of my first year’s grades… But things get better.
Actually, it seems people get used to having 5 exams in the same week and sometimes even more than one a day. And they just seem to be able to study months worth of paper in two days and still get decent grades. If not actually good grades. It feels like as soon as you stop obsessing and start seeing exams as nothing more than just another test, thing get better. Much better. t’s much more of a technique thing than dedicated time, actually.
But you obviously can’t trust Clor’s words on this. It’s not like he’s getting out of College anytime time soon either.
