No one checks to see if you’re going to class or doing your assignments. You are responsible for your own academic progress. Less time in class—more independent study College students spend about half as much time in class as high school students, but they spend a lot more time studying on their own. More emphasis on tests and less busywork Homework grades often make up only a small portion of your grade. In many cases, the midterm, a term paper, and/or the final exam make up most of your final grade. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go to college?
