Follow–up on Getting started on skills development and the Warwick Skills Portfolio
Workshop Tutor: Amanda Randall
Heres a summary of how I've been getting on with my action points
- Academic skills
Here i would like to point out that i primarily think that because of warwick skills and portfolio classes that i had attended i have noticed that i am more and more better off with my studies.
Now, i can concentrate better on my studies which is being reflected on my marks and my overall development.
Improving academic skills is a very significant point as far as overall experience at warwick is concerned and i am noticing a positive change in my marks and my attitude towards academics.
Motivation keeps you going and its one of the significant factors needed to help you work and study at the university. Being away from home and friends can sometimes have their effect as a demotivating factor and hence can have an adverse effect on our studies as well as time management. Thus by wspa, i realised the importance of identifying my time stealers and be more confident and dedicated and hence i am noticing a positive change in my marks and my personality as a whole
- Setting priorities
Attending wspa classes helped me a great deal with one of the most essential things needed during my course at the university and that is setting up priorities and setting them up as according to deadlines and the amount of work that needs to be specifically done.
Just after the christmas vacations in january saw a huge rise in the amount of assignments and tests to be done and setting up my tasks and the subjects to focus on a particular day in advance helped me a great deal to cope up with the busy time at the university
Once again, the word measurable today has a big significance in my life. It was because classes and lectures at wspa emphasized a lot on quantities that were measurable as in the amount of chapters that are needed to be done from a particular book or the amount of questions that are to be done from a particular assignment. Thus by measuring things and assigning them a set priority based on their measure helped me a lot with my academic studies and submissions during the busy first two weeks of january at the university. I would definately continue using all these action points in the future as i can see a positive change in my attitude towards things and the way i handle a lot of study pressure at the university
