As you are about to enter the last 100 meters of this semester, I urge you to think about when and where you study best. It matters. If you do not believe me, Google, "When and Where You Study" and see for yourself.
Where do you like to study? Is it in your room? Your suite? The cafeteria? Study area in your dorm? When was in college and in graduate school, I found that I worked best in an area with ambient noise. I studied in the Campus Center basement cafeteria if my friends were not there. All of the chatter would become meaningless background noise. I could work on papers in the library if, and only if, I had completed my research and I was ready to start writing.
Who do you study with? Are they as determined to succeed as you? Do they push you to be a better you or do they slow you down. You can do bad all by yourself. Make sure that your study groups and your study habits actually help you.
