Almost every ordinary student can’t muster up some strength and energy to wake up early in the morning, get out of bed and go to class. It seems like a real everyday challenge. Will you attend a 9 a.m. lecture and force yourself to study despite feeling physically unprepared? Or the lure to do anything else can become irresistible?
Whatever the type you belong to, missing a lecture is something that every student will do at least once at a certain point. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t skipped one. The reasons can vary from legitimate and excusable to the ones with the drastic consequences. Skipping a lecture on occasion is okay. But do not get used to poor attendance and frequent absences because of your laziness, oversleeping, or hanging out with your friends instead of attending a class. Do not be alarmed! Missing an occasional lecture will not necessarily impact negatively your grades or cause you to be expelled from college.
+ Your morning activities provide a good start of the day.
- You can do something else instead.
+ You can focus on the subject and you can pay your attention to it.
- You can easily speed up the online lecture and save your time.
+ You can strike up friendships and ask your new friends for help.
- You have to share with somebody your learning environment.
Unlike high school, skipping class in college is likely not to be problematic. One lecture is not a big deal as well. Just don’t make a habit of it. Stay always motivated. You can’t obtain every single thing you missed just from a classmate. Realizing how best to handle missing out on a lecture will help you not to suffer from consequences and will allow you to succeed in the later classes.
