It is often said that ‘‘the space between dream and reality can be fulfilled by your education.’’Education is that weapon which can not only make you, but break you too. It depends from individual to individual on how they want to make use of education. But in the way of formal education, assignments and homework is the initial stair in your target to achieve success!
How many of you enjoy doing your assignments and homework? Do you treat your assignments positively or negatively? Well, being a student myself I know what students generally think of assignments. Ever since formal education has been introduced, there has been the existence ofassignments. And as far as my knowledge is, no student has ever loved doing his/her assignments.
But does this mean that students should avoid doing assignments? Just because they don’t like doing assignments, it does not mean that assignments should be treated carelessly. No matter how annoying or disgusted it sounds to you, there are several reasons why you need to treat your assignments seriously. Don’t believe it? Well, stay tuned to this post, and I am sure your perception will change.
It was during the summer vacation of my first year at college when we were loaded with some 30 assignments, each having their submission deadline on the day of re-opening. Ever since my childhood, I have always eagerly waited for this time of the year as I had several plans lined up. Thus, the day it was announced that there are 30 assignments to be completed during the vacation, it was like all my dreams getting shattered. I still remember the amount of grudge I had against my college.
When I came home, I burst out the entire grudge to my family. After noticing my tantrums for a while, my father took me to his room. He then made me understand the importance these assignments have in the life of a student. From that day onwards, my perception towards assignments changed completely. I started eagerly waiting for my assignments every day.After returning from college, the first thing that I did was completing my assignments and putting my best efforts in it.
Are you awestruck about what made me change my attitude towards assignments? Want to know about the session between me and dad? Well, I know how desperately you want to know these. Thinking about the benefits which other students can derive from assignments, I finally decided to write on this!
The benefits of doing assignments towards a profitable career:
There are 7 benefits which prove to be advantageous for students who aim towards a profitable career. These benefits are-
- Better awareness of the subject–
No matter how difficult you find a subject to be, you need to have a sound knowledge in the subject. The way in which teachers and professors evaluate your understanding of the particular subject is by giving you assignments from time. Having a sound knowledge on the subject is very essential in the life of a student.
A student, who decides to avoid his assignment or stop doing it properly, is the one who turns to be a loser. Remember that your teachers have nothing to lose. But if you have an aim towards a successful career ahead, you need to be aware of each and every hook and corner in your subject.
- Understanding the topics and concepts–
There are teachers who give assignments to their students based on what they have taught in the class. They give these assignments in order to check how much they have understood the concepts which the teacher has taught. Students who pay proper attention during class hours can easily handle such assignments whereas students who remain inattentive find it difficult to solve the homework.
While correcting these assignments, they easily understand if the student has understood the concepts or not. Better performance in assignments not only brings good grades but it even makes you have an in-depth understanding of the topic and concepts your teacher has taught. In order to have academic success, you need to have clear conception of each and every topic taught in class.
In case you are facing some problems in understanding the concept but want to do your assignment seriously, then you can take help from any online professional educational website.
- Effective time-management-
No matter what career you pursue, you need to have time-management in your life so that you can handle all your responsibilities efficiently. The assignments that your teachers assign you on daily basis are the first step towards the lesson of effective time-management. After spending 7-8 hours in school, once these students come home, they are left with little time to manage everything from their regular studies, assignments, other co-curricular activities, to family time.
The students need to make a time-table where they can wisely divide their work timings based on their importance. Thus, if a student inherits time-management skills from a young age, he/she will be able to manage time for all the priorities of life.
- Better writing skills-
The assignments which your teachers give you,need a lot of write-up. The more you do your assignments seriously;the better will be your writing skills. You will know how to make a good introduction, the importance of a powerful conclusion, etc. No matter what career you want to pursue ahead, having good writing skills is a must. Thus, if you put your best efforts in assignments, your writing skills will get enhanced.
- Enhances your abilities-
One of the greatest benefits that these assignments have, is that they enhance the abilities of the students. Students who take their assignments seriously get a chance to enhance various abilities from a young age. These abilities include imaginative skills, intelligence, problem-solving, ability to do team-work as well as develop leadership skills.
Each of these skills is important in the lives of an individual both in their personal life as well as professional life. This proves that the benefits of assignment-solving is not only limited to the educational aspects but extends to the other aspects of life too.
- Developing the necessary research skills-
The most important thing that students are supposed to do before they start solving their assignments is have a proper research of the topic they have been assigned. Unless and until you do an in-depth research of the topic, you will not understand what you are supposed to write in the assignment. The more assignments you do, the better will be your research skills. And in order to pursue higher studies, you will need to do ample research. Thus, with every assignment, your research ability skills get enhanced.
- Better academic grades-
Well, this is my favourite benefit! Come on, who doesn’t like to have good academic grades! The most attractive benefit that you can avail from doing assignments is having A and A+ grades. Most of the assignments that students have carry grades along with them. Thus, if you do your assignment seriously, you can expect to have better academic grades. And better academic grades ensure that you will have better future ahead.
I am sure that with these benefits, you now have the seven reasons on how assignments are related to a student’s successful career ahead.
