Time flies in a blink of an eye. The class leading by me, the class teacher, has entered the second semester of the third grade. I still remember the first meeting which was described in the blog post “First Day as a Freshman Class Teacher“. As the class teacher, I participated in the first class meeting this semester held a few days ago. This class meeting focused on the problem that every student will face, that is, the personal planning for the coming year.
Preliminary statistics made at the beginning of this term showed that there were about 20 students who had already planned to take the postgraduate entrance examination, and some students might have clear goals. As far as the current stage is concerned, for most students, on the premise of ensuring that they can graduate smoothly, they can pursue their own goal, whether it is the goal of postgraduate entrance examination, the goal of job search, or the goal of taking the civil service exam. Well, all of them need to be completed on the premise of being able to graduate successfully.
After having the goal plan for the postgraduate entrance examination, the next step is how to arrange the short-term study plan and how to deal with the time conflict with current courses. The scientific management and rational use of time is the premise to ensure high efficiency. This is also the stage and the ability requirements that need to be possessed.
I personally think that when planning and positioning goals, according to past experience, the goals must be set reasonably and timely. You must have a systematic and comprehensive analysis and judgment on yourself, and compare the public courses and professional courses according to your own conditions. What are the shortcomings? The geographical location of the target school, the popularity of the school, and the ranking of majors are all issues that everyone should concern about. Specific and detailed target positioning needs to be determined as soon as possible, the earlier the better, so as to facilitate the development of the next review plan.
When choosing a target school, it is best if you can find someone to contact in it. For example, if you have been admitted to the school by seniors in the past, contacting them will give you more confidence, let you learn more, and even make you contact the tutor in advance, which will be helpful for review preparations, including subsequent retests and interviews.
What to do next after targeting? Start reviewing the content that needs to be examined in the public class now, allocate time reasonably, and have a good plan. In addition, there must be regularity in work and rest, such as staying up late before the exam, I think it is not advisable. Another thing is to pay attention to personal health and diet to ensure the supply of nutrients, sleep, and time to exercise. According to the recent learning goals, formulating your own detailed learning plans, scientifically arranging your own time every day, and making full use of it will be very helpful to improve learning efficiency.
In addition, there is another way of recommendation without examination that can be considered. If it is a foreign school, you need to apply to it in advance to see if you can meet the standards. Of course, those who are recommended to apply to a foreign school also need to meet the basic requirements of the school for recommending graduate students.
For the postgraduate entrance examination, some students will also make two-handed preparations. It is also possible to prepare for job search in advance. Of course, if you have a clear employment plan, including what kind of company your future employment goals are, what are the requirements for employing people, and what are the specific standards. With such a clear goal, it will even be specific to a certain company. What are its specific employment requirements and standards? Then you can compare and see what gaps you still have. Now you can fill in the gaps and see if you can meet the standards. If you determine your goals as early as possible and compare them with the employer’s goals and requirements, it might be a different situation.
Finally, there are students who take the civil service exam, or if they are planning to refer to the national or provincial exams, no one may have such a plan now, but you may have such a plan in the near future. No matter what, for each student, at this time period, at this time point, at this stage, you need to think about such a question within one and a half years from now, your future way-out.
The next six months to one year is the most stressful and critical stage for most students, and it is the stage that requires you to work hard during college. I hope that everyone can put forward a goal and life positioning for themselves according to a standard and requirement in their minds, and make the most suitable choice for themselves at such a crossroad in life, and dedicate their efforts. No matter what the result is, I believe that everyone has such an experience, a process, and your life will become more exciting. A colorful life requires everyone to work hard, which also meets the requirements of our current new era for young people. Good days come from hard work. I hope that everyone will move towards their own goals, do their own struggle, and make such an important stage of life go well and steadily. In the future, you will not feel regretful because of the enrichment of this period of time.
