How to sign up for classes with a favorable schedule
Signing up for classes with a schedule that suits your priorities is important. You might want to pick a schedule that allows you to work after class, or the one that goes along with your late rising, or the one that allows you to take breaks between classes to ease up the stress. We present to you the merits and demerits of each type of class schedule to help you pick one.
The 8am schedule
If you are planning to work after class or just want some worry free time in the evening then you should sign up for the 8am classes and get free by noon.
- You'll have plenty of time to get done with your assignments and spend the rest of the evening worry free.
- You can try out the gym and not have to wait to use any equipment.
- The parking space is pretty good in the morning when you show up for class.
- You can take a part time job and earn some extra bucks.
- You'll have plenty of time to sleep.
- You need to go to bed early, 10pm.
- You might feel drowsy at evening, but if you did sleep, you will end up awake till mid-night.
- You will miss a lot of late night action with friends who sleep late. (movie marathons/video games/parties) etc.
- You'll be up early even on weekends.
- You'll be called a nerd/geek.
Schedule with breaks
With this schedule you sign up for classes that are apart by 1 or 2 hours, so that you may take a break, have a snack, spend some time in the library and resume with the classes an hour or so later.
- You'll have time to freshen up after an hour or so long class.
- You can do your assignments in between breaks.
- You can do a little revision to have the context for the next class.
- You might have to spend all day at the campus and get free till evening.
- You need to be good with class timings. Don't lose track of time, keep a watch or set alerts on your phone.
- Contrary to the ideal situation, you might be getting bored in the library waiting for the 4pm or later class.
Schedule for late risers
If you are a late riser, you should signup for classes starting at noon (11am) and later.
- You'll get plenty of time to sleep.
- Your routine will be casual.
- You can hang up till late night at movies, gaming parties etc.
- Unless the professor tries hard, you won't feel sleepy in class.
- If your classes start in the afternoon (3 -4pm), you'll have plenty of time to do your assignments if you wake up by 11am.
- You'll be coming to class at the rush hour, so parking space would be tight.
- You might have a hard time focusing in a class as late as 6pm.
- You'll still be a late riser and that's not so good.
