Difficulty studying at university? Difficulty taking exams? A period of university crisis it can happen to all students; it is, therefore, a common and "physiological" thing. The problem becomes serious when the difficulties become insurmountable for the student, causando long periods of university inactivity or, in the worst cases, abandonment of studies.
Difficulties in studying at university can manifest themselves at different times of their academic career and may affect the possibility of be successful in college and be able to graduate in time. Let's see in detail what the different periods which a student can enter crisis with exams and how to face them and overcome them in the best possible way.
The first year undoubtedly represents a stumbling block that not everyone has the ability or the desire to overcome. At this stage the university crisis is around the corner. Istat data shows that one in five students does not enroll in the second year. The prevailing reason is given by difficulties in studies. Freshmen who drop out of college are often students who have underestimated commitment: they think that, having passed the baccalaureate exam, the university commitment, after all, will not be as burdensome as that of high school. Probably this one mistaken belief it was born because one is no longer subjected to the daily pressure of study and questioning that exists in high school. Furthermore, it is thought that you will have a lot of time to study since, in many faculties, there is no obligation to follow courses. It is clear that such an approach inevitably leads to university failure, since without the right amount of self-discipline and organization you don't get very far. Students start taking courses and then they don't know how to plan and approach the study. It is therefore essential to have a university study method as I have already had the opportunity to explain to you. Another reason freshmen drop out of college is that they have chosen the faculty to enroll in superficially. In fact, students often enroll in a degree course without good orientation or, worse still, under pressure from parents or relatives. Now, if you find yourself in this situation, you still have time to change: first of all do not listen to those who want to influence you in the choice of studies to undertake; you have to decide what is best for you. And even if your choice won't be shared by a parent, you don't need to worry: you do not live so as not to disappoint others; live to fulfill yourself! I'm not saying that you don't have to compare yourself with others: from the comparison you could, in fact, gain food for thought. I'm just saying that you don't have to be swayed. That's all. Then ask yourself what you want, what you would like to do in life and what your real inclinations are. Evaluate your preparation as objectively as possible: do not underestimate yourself and do not overestimate yourself. You can also do a test online: try, for example, this one from Sun 24 Hours; it really is a great orientation service.
Difficulties in studying at university could manifest themselves in the middle of the journey. First of all, let's start from a positive aspect: if you have passed the first year without leaving university it means that the faculty you have chosen is good for you. Now, what might the obstacles that prevent you from progressing? The most common at this stage is the demoralization due to a performance not in line with your expectations. If looking at your booklet you get depressed (because of the few exams taken or the low grades), then it only exists a constructive thing you can do to overcome the university crisis: stop afflicting yourself and improve your average, perhaps by passing the exams in time. Again it is a question of method! Another a typical reason why we slow down with studies is distraction. THE distracting factors are numerous: personal matters, moods, external events, other activities to which one is dedicated (work or not). If you want to get through this stage you have to deal with all distracting factors by eliminating them: in University Student Memorandum I talk about it in in-depth and exhaustive manner.
If you have difficulty studying at university when now you are almost at graduation it basically means that you are exhausted, As you seem to never finish! I am reminded of the image of a cyclist in crisis who "gets stuck" just as he tackles the last climb before reaching the finish line. It is a real shame to risk losing everything when you are close to success; do not you think? A other reason it might as well be the fear of taking on the responsibilities that come with facing life once you graduate. Let's face it: for most students with the end of the university the certainties end and the uncertainties about one's future begin. In in both cases - exhaustion or fear - you can face the difficulties of studying at university by leveraging your motivation. When you are almost at the top of your university career and studying exams has become difficult, you have to motivate yourself by thinking about the finish line. Fear of facing future uncertainty should also be addressed with motivation: prove to yourself and others how much you are worth, rather than being blocked by unnecessary fears. On the other hand, what is life if not a journey that leads us from the unknown to the unknown?
