Ever heard of the saying “eat your vegetables first?” Your parents were right: it’s good for you to eat your greens before anything else. Because if you don’t eat them first, you might never eat them at all.
A similar concept applies to studying: tackle your least favourite topics first. Work on the topics you like the least before you move on to your favourite subjects.
This might mean starting a challenging assignment before an easier one, or skipping all the ‘easy’ questions on a test and beginning with the questions you find the most difficult.
In other words, look for the ‘broccoli’ in each assignment and get that out of the way before you move on to sweeter subjects.News, Study inspiration | Leave a reply

Last Thursday, students at the International Travel College (ITC) celebrated Easter by dressing up, putting on special performances, and, of course, eating lots of chocolate.
The Easter event was in the spirit of good fun, but it had the added bonus of fostering teamwork and confidence among the students.
Each class was asked to nominate two “dressed up” students, and some classes also rehearsed special performances such as a Fashion Parade and an Easter dance.
Events like these are a great opportunity for students to practice performing in front of an audience (a useful skill in the tourism industry!), as well as work as part of a team.News, Student success | Tagged campus life, Easter, Student Event | Leave a reply
