The new semester is right around the corner. What can you possibly do to increase your performance in your courses that you haven’t tried already?

Well, have you considered the following?

Professors grade your in-class participation and your papers subjectively. And they can be influenced by the seemingly small things you do in class. So, this semester, I suggest you try the following: 

  1. Come to class a little early every time.
  2. Sit in the front.
  3. Associate yourself with the smart, conscientious students.
  4. Ask well-thought-out questions.
  5. Look interested whenever your professor and other students are speaking.

I know this sounds manipulative. But you’ll find that when you act this way, you will genuinely become that conscientious, dream student that professors love. Try this for one whole semester, and let me know how it works out for you. Sticking to it may take as much resolve as your toughest New Year’s resolution, but you may be amazed at the results.
