Increase your grades with these Apps
Taking tests and writing essays can wear you out. It does not matter if you are in your first year or a seasoned veteran. As long as you are a student and as long as you have a potential social life, professors will find a way to kill it.
At crunch time, the goal is not getting a first, but rather just passing. This is a big change from life in high school, is it not?
There is no reason though that your desires should be lessened just because your Prof has no soul.
Look at how using your cell phone can help you get a first:
Record your lectures and classes
This is not high school; your cell phone will not be confiscated. Use the recording features found on most phone to record your lectures. Then you can at a later stage go through them. This is particularly helpful if your lecturer speaks really fast, or you battle to take notes down quickly.
