Abstract

Unlike secondary college education, college education expects students to be more pro-active and independent throughout the learning process. They are expected to take their own notes, search for information, undertake group projects, participate in class discussion, give oral presentations, etc. They also need to schedule their timetable and decide on their electives. To those students who have been brought up in a culture where emphasis is on teaching and examinations, these new demands will cause them serious problems if they have not been successful in formulating an independent  approach  to  studying  in  their  college. Childs and Spencer (2002) found in their study that the change in study approach in college caused six kinds of student concerns. These concerns were: “losing direction; not maintaining the motivation; not knowing if you are doing enough work generally or doing it as efficiently as possible; lack of confidence; not being able to take relevant and thorough enough notes which are useful for revision; and less time  to ask questions and have them answered”(p.6). In particular, they found that quite a number of students had difficulties in handling the workload. This paper makes an attempt to reveal many easy steps to cope up with the new college campus and to succeed in academics. The scenario of both Indian and abroad universities is taken into consideration in this paper.
