Midterms are over and you are now confronted with the state of your grades. Maybe you did okay or even more than okay but it was high stress all the way. Or maybe you didn’t do as well as you could or as well as you need to if you are to be competitive for grad school or the job you want after graduation.
Either way, it may be time to rethink the way you are doing college. It doesn’t have to be so high stress. If you were bright enough to be admitted, you’re bright enough to earn decent grades. But it may require a major shift in your schedule, your attitude, and your work ethic to get there.
Here are some tips to make the second half of the semester go smoothly for you…
If you got a string of C-minuses or lower, resist the tendency to give up. However discouraged you may be, letting yourself get overwhelmed will ensure a GPA-busting semester. A new commitment to your studies could bail you out, or at least bail you out enough so that you have something to build on next semester.
If, on the other hand, you did fine but were so stressed you’re still recovering, you have a different challenge: Resist the tendency to collapse in a grateful heap and coast for a few weeks. You’ll be setting yourself up for another anxiety attack when finals roll around.
