High School vs. College - Differences & Comparisons
High school vs. College – what is the
difference when it comes to the overall lifestyle?
High school students tend to sleep much
earlier than their counterparts the college students who prefer sleeping late
and waking up late. High-school students, on the other hand, do sleep early and
wake up between 6:30 am – 6.45 am whereas college kids tend to wake up between
7:30 am and 7:48 am. Sleep is vital when it comes to the mental health of all
students and to boost
the general mood and effectiveness and extra-curricular activities as well.
It's that time of year when high-school
students base their intelligence and academic worth on standardized tests that
determine if you're well prepared vs. extremely! Well equipped for college
classes at the 100 level even though most college students perform poorly when
assigned tests when compared to high-school students who have more
concentration spans as compared to their counterparts. Most high school
students understand the best time to study and stick to a schedule, which
balances sufficient study-time, and due to this, they tend to perform better
under exam conditions.
College level students tend to have
activities which demand flexibility and therefore they rarely stick to a
schedule and what’s the output? They end up wasting time and using up all the
time needed for study by engaging in extra activities which are not school
A more significant percentage of college kids
tend to be professional procrastinators, and most of them relate to this
statement that “I wish there were some sort of Olympics for professional
procrastinators because it would be kind to win something for once in my life.”
They have challenges in time management and prioritizing.
College students complain about the system
and having “so much to do” because they don’t have excellent time management
skills. High-school students follow their schedule to the letter, and they have
learned to tackle the time management issue. College students are weird since
they need 26hrs of sleep in a 24hr period which is impossible to achieve, but
still, they make the miracle happen. Mastering time management will help you
succeed in college and beyond.
Fact; “Having no classes for a certain day
means extended procrastination to –professional crammers.”
The trophy goes to college students who have
experienced crammers and can afford to skip classes and still pass. College
students have the guts to sleep the entire day before the exam, and later on,
do an all-nighter and cram straight into the exam. Collegiate level students
are successful at cramming which involves studying intensively within a short
period of time just before taking an exam.
“Don't underestimate the things that college
kids can do.”
High school students tend to concentrate more
on their studies though we can’t rule out the facts that high school taught
some college level students how to cram very well and finally growing to be
professional crammers in that aspect. The rate of cramming is however low when
compared to the college level where you need to grasp information relayed to
you throughout the semester and still need to pass since your life depends on
it. Considering the facts that you have gone out multiple times drinking
margaritas and spent hours of valuable time watching football you need to
understand the cramming techniques to pull through.
When attending any University, just know that
you will be reading and cramming to get grades unlike cramming less, using more
top rated and proven learning techniques. 97% of college students attest to the
facts that last minute cramming definitely works better for them, and that’s
the reason why the majority of the graduates can't apply what they were taught
HOW TO STUDY AS A PROFESSIONAL CRAMMER
Study in the evening, as it settles in your head as you sleep.
And on the day, a bottle of Lucozade 30 minutes before the exam.
A massive round of applause goes to college students!
Most college students deal with courses which are no joke! They have to deal
with perpetual essays, research work, coursework and presentations which demand
a lot of concentration. During their spare time, most college students are
signed with both the football and baseball teams among other sports which help
calm their nerves. Knock it out of the park, college students!
Contrary to college students, high school
students should have a lot of free time in these days as they take very few
classes but I still they can't use their free time very well at doing stuff
they'd like to get accomplished as Anna confirms “What do I do in my spare
time? I read subtweets and try and piece the tea together utilizing other
subtweets. It's an art.”
Tales, a high school student at Central
Magnet School in Tennessee, explains how he is so bad at time management to the
point that it gets annoying:
“For example, I spent over 2 hours TASing a
small Egg Quarters section yesterday that I could have done in like 15 minutes,
but I spent more time in it because I was watching videos/streams or doing
other stuff as I couldn't concentrate too much on TASing itself...
And I could have done that in 15 minutes and
used the rest of my time before sleeping to continue that TAS for longer as I
wouldn't sleep so soon, or even do something else more useful than what I did
“Anyway, that's something I want to fix soon
as it's getting annoying lol. I guess that talking about it can be seen as a
Those of you who desire more out of life, ask
yourself, are you really utilizing your spare time or are you just wasting
High-school students tend to stay at home
while going or attending school and this means that they do not have as much freedom
as college kids have. College students live on or off campus, but they mostly
do not live with their parents. This means that college students have a chance
to explore different avenues in life including alcohol and drug abuse as
compared to their counterparts in high school who mostly are under the control
of their parents.
The level of freedom in college should get
people and the population at large to be concerned (even collegiate level
students are involved) that all the 4 to 5 years they are in college everything
seems to be predetermined.
It’s worrying that every college student has
the freedom to create their own class schedule and this means that the absolute
freedom can ruin students who aren’t conversant with time management skills and
the obligation that comes with being a college student.
Peer pressure among high school students is
nothing to worry about since high school students are not prime examples of
peer pressure. They should give those peer pressure lectures in college instead
of high school. College peer pressure is a different breed, one minute you’re
having a good time, next minute you’ve drunk whiskey, lokos, and now your
jumping in a freezing pool naked.
Unlike a high school student, a college
student the weekend is bad peer pressure.
“College is going to be the best years of
your life, but do not get here and forget who you are and what you came for.
Self-work is very important in college don’t let your friends or peer pressure
force you into being someone you’re not because after college they won’t
Just mind your business and stay focused.”
College is throwing you into lifelong debt
before you can even start, unlike high school students who are not served with
this debt until they graduate and are about to get hit with that lifelong
Most college students, unlike high school
students, are securing life-long debts at college and while some are voicing
their unpopular opinions saying that “your debt is your responsibility. You
could’ve gone to community college;” higher education goes farther than
community college... the pursuit of that shouldn’t be a lifelong debt sentence
as a result of insanely high-interest rates that make it impossible for you to
make a dent in your debts even after DECADES of paying them regularly.
“I know so many people that went to college
and are in debt now and don’t even work under their degree. There are so many
great jobs and life long careers that you don’t need a degree for. Do not let
anyone make you feel like shit for not going. Do what makes YOU happy!”
“Whatever you do, remain to be a life-long
learner. You don't need college for that. Also make sure that you can be
independent, as marriages can fail. College is not the only way to achieve
this, and it can also be a life of debt that you don't need.”
Let’s make college a gateway to opportunity,
not a trap door to life-long debt, and finally, deliver comprehensive
immigration reform —with a pathway to citizenship.
