The transition from high school to college can be tough, on more than one level. But what freshmen don’t always seem to realize is that college classes are harder than high school ones. It might be not the case for every single one of your classes, but you will find yourself struggling to get grades as good as the ones you used to have in high school. Getting A’s in college is much harder than it is in high school. And while grades aren’t everything, it sure impacts your college life.

The Ultimate Guide to Getting A's in College

During my first semester at university, I managed to get A’s in every single one of my classes. That gave me a 4.18 GPA (in Quebec the GPA is calculated out of 4.3), which is pretty amazing. I never expected to do that well in my first semester, because I had heard that college was much harder than high school and cegep (another Quebec thing).

But if I can do it, I know you can too! Once you have figured out a routine that works for you, it’s not that hard to get those straight A’s. This is why I’m sharing my secrets to getting A’s in college.

As you know, I was supposed to go to Toronto. But, life happened, and next thing you know, I’m canceling our hotel reservation. As you might imagine, I was very disappointed. I had built a lot of expectations on that trip that I was devastated when I found out that it was no longer happening.

A Day in Montreal

To cheer me up, my parents, who had I had ranted to about the trip throughout the entire organization process, decided that I needed a little getaway. Since my mom was on her summer break and my sister had the day off from work, my dad took the day off and we headed off to Montreal for the day.

Blogging is a hobby that can take up a lot of your time. Not only do you need to write posts, but you also have to promote them in order to see results. It may not seem like a lot, but trust me, just that is plenty already. And it doesn’t end here! Bloggers tend to have a ton of social media accounts they use as promotion tools, and those need to be kept updated too. There is always something to be done or to be improved.

As a college blogger, I cannot dedicate all of my time to blogging, as I wish I could do. I also have a part-time job, so that takes up a lot of my time as well. So, in order to be able to make it, time management is key. Finding a balance between blogging, college, and work can be hard, but it’s totally doable!

Today, I’m sharing with you how I handle it all, and I hope that these tips will be able to help you too!
