How To Get A First Class Degree

Anyone who has embarked on a three-year degree mission should be trying their hardest to get the best grade they can. Why would anyone spend that much money and allow the chance to have a great future to slip through their fingers? All students are different, and everyone's studying techniques will be different from everyone else's. There are the ones who need absolute silence and a plethora of books, others who need some external stimulus videos, music in the background, study in the park. Some people who work better in groups, whatever your studying technique, you can be sure that if you don't go into it with the drive and ambition needed to succeed, you won't. A first-class degree is not an easy thing to achieve. So, to help you, we have come up with some ideas to help you get the top grades. - www.channongray.com // heythereChannon

Anyone who has embarked on a three-year degree mission should be trying their hardest to get the best grade they can. Why would anyone spend that much money and allow the chance to have a great future to slip through their fingers? All students are different, and everyone’s studying techniques will be different from everyone else’s. There are the ones who need absolute silence and a plethora of books, others who need some external stimulus videos, music in the background, study in the park. Some people who work better in groups, whatever your studying technique, you can be sure that if you don’t go into it with the drive and ambition needed to succeed, you won’t. A first-class degree is not an easy thing to achieve. So, to help you, we have come up with some ideas to help you get the top grades:

Focus 

You cannot afford to go out drinking all the time if you want a first-class degree. You have to ensure that you read all the books, start your assignments well before they need to be handed in. Study hard every day without fail before an exam. Ensure you are organised. Make sure you know where you access the best material. Have a draft assignment looked at by someone else? It doesn’t necessarily have to be someone doing the same course as you. If you do not focus on the job in hand, you will not have the skills and knowledge needed to do a first-class job. So knuckle down. 

Ask for help

If you do not understand something, do not sit there and worry, have a private conversation with the tutor. They will be more than willing to help you. There is no worse feeling than missing something. Do not be afraid to look silly. You will look more silly when your results come back, and they are not what you wanted or hoped for. Also, if your degree is science-based and technical, you may have problems writing an essay. Why not get some help in your research paper writing. Many students have all the knowledge, but they cannot present it in a coherent manner. So why struggle when there are many ways to get help.

Use as many resources as possible

There are so many ways to gain knowledge. Go to the library and read up, ask the librarian if they know of any other resources on a given subject. There are online videos, obviously, there is Google and Google Books. But don’t forget museums and local experts. If you want to discover something, there is a whole world of knowledge out there, and all you have to do is start looking.

Don’t give up

If you have a bad result, you may think that it’s over and want to throw in the towel. Don’t do that. Dust yourself off, learn from your mistakes. Why not speak to the lecturer to find out exactly what you did wrong, Maybe you could request a regrade if you think it is unfair. But keep going forward, your overall grade will drag it up if you stay in gear.
