The start of each academic year is very important for students. The first exam in a student’s academic year will cause students to feel obligated to maintain their good results. This motivation will cause students to naturally work hard throughout the year. A strong foundation in the subjects for the year that is built up in the earlier part of the year will also allow students to study with lesser effort and achieve better results in the later portion of the year. A good start in studying every year will cultivate good habits to start and end every year right, by pacing oneself to be ahead of others and gives you the benefit of not needing to catch up with others during the later portions of the year.
