Take a breath, friend! This decision, like many others that determine your surroundings for a period of time, is important.

5 Websites That May Help You Choose The University Or College Thats Right For You CBS San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — For many high school seniors, fall means deciding where to apply for college and maybe visiting a guidance counselor. Picking a college is nothing like it once was. In 1980, there were 3,150 colleges and universities, according to the Department of Education. Now, there are close to 4,700 and data crunchers hope to help. Photo Credit Thinkstock The popularity of social media sites and advancements in the ability to analyze the vast amounts of data we put online give members of the class of 2015 more tools than ever to help chart their next step, even if finding the right college is an inexact science.

While popular, these online search tools definitely have their limitations. Every student is an individual. No website can predict with 100% accuracy your chances of admission, or if once you’re in, you’ll be satisfied. Via sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com

There are several things to consider in choosing the right university. I am actually going to share more articles here in the coming days about the best universities available in Singapore, so please do keep yourself updated for my informational posts.


Effective Study Habits Every Student Should Know

While I was reviewing the study guides and other reading materials I provided my students with, I couldn’t help but wonder whether or not the study tips and techniques were helpful to them. Well, some of my students actually have given me a feedback and they were grateful for the reading materials I have given them. I’m aiming to make a compilation of study guides and tips that can give my students numerous options on how they can study according to their lifestyle and interests. I want my students to have hours of painless and effective study sessions. I personally believe that having an enjoyable than terrible time in studying is one of the best ways to learn. Anyway, I recently came across this fantastic article and thought it’s something worth posting here. It’s about the effective study habits that students should know about. I found this article really interesting, and I hope you’ll like it too. Check it out:

Effective Study Habits Every Student Should Know

https://www.udemy.com/blog/effective-study-habits/“Do your homework!” We’ve all been there. Whether it was our parents telling us as kids or us telling our own kids, we’ve all seen the lack of interest and efficiency in doing our school work.  It wasn’t until I was in my second year in college that I really understood the best way for me to tackle all my school work effectively. Developing effective study habits should ideally be accomplished in grade school but for those of us who didn’t make it to valedictorian we know that our grades suffered because of our less than stellar study habits.

I do hope this article has provided you some useful information. I am actually planning to post more reading materials here. However, as of the moment I am still organizing my files to make them well-structured.

There are two versions of the IELTS. The version you should take depends upon your goals for taking the test. If you wish to use your IELTS scores to gain admittance to a university or college, you should take the Academic test. If you wish to apply to an occupational training program or a job that requires English skills, you should take the General Training test.

What is the Format of the Test?

The format of the IELTS is very similar to the format of the iBT TOEFL exam. The IELTS consists of four parts. Thirty minutes are allotted for the listening section and 60 minutes are allowed for the reading section. You’ll have 60 minutes for the writing section. All three of these sections are taken in one session. You may also take the speaking section on the same day or you may take it within seven days of the other portions. The speaking section lasts 11 to 14 minutes. Via eslclassesboston.com

Tips and techniques – these should be an important part of preparing for the IELTS test. If you are a student or applying for residency, have a look at this article and see how you can improve your performance during the test.

As a test, I’ll tell new students to read and complete one or two IELTS Reading tasks. Often, a red flag arises immediately: the questions go to one side, the reading passage takes centre stage and the student reads the text word by word from beginning to end; worse still, some stop to panic about words they don’t know! I can just see the minutes ticking away and no answers being noted down…

This post focuses on the two key mistakes that those students above are making to prevent you from making them too.

In the Reading test, your time is precious. And the students described above are wasting it!

What should you be doing with your limited time? Make the questions the priority. Rather than pushing them to the side to look at each word in each paragraph in each passage, read the questions to know what information you need to look for when you do read the passages. First, read the questions to understand their meanings and to know what they are looking for. Then just start answering them. Find information that answers questions and apply it as fast as possible.
