School – life balance: get into college with less stress

Finishing high school has always been a stressful time in a person’s life throughout all the history. So many unanswered questions. What’s next? Should I continue with higher education? Will I ever get into the college I want? Am I good enough? I have been through it all. I started stressing out then my family and friends followed this deep rabbit hole. If this is happening in your life or you are about to finish school and look for a way to get into the college or university of your dreams – DON’T WORRY.

The biggest step is deciding what degree to pursue. In my experience, it is easier if you focus on your hobbies, something you really enjoy doing and then looking how you can apply that to your future college degree and eventually career. Don’t underestimate high school classes. What if you really enjoy science classes – this gives you the option to choose so many science degrees which can be as specific or as general as you think you will enjoy. Another example is literature. Are you an avid reader that picks up a book every day, loves analyzing the characters and discussing the plot with other people? You can choose the path of a writer or just study literature.

Now the most stressful part! How do you get into a higher education school of your choice? First of all, research all the qualification requirements. If you know what you need to do for the degree to the very detailed specifics, then you will be able to only focus on that. My advice is to work very hard at the subjects you choose but also try to understand it, don’t cram it. If you need sat tutoring go here, it will relieve so much stress from making yourself study non-stop alone. If you understand what you are doing you will be more focused and even enjoy it more. Do keep all of this in mind when studying and you will be at the top of your school career in no time.
