Re: Keys to College Success

I'm in my second year of college right now and I'm pre-med.
As for as my courses, anything that requires good memory, I can do. But as far as calculations with chem and math I totally suck at.
So I am one of those people who can study for bio 30 mins before a exam and ace it.

But that can only get me so far when I reach harder courses
I do have a problem with studying. I can never get things done! Maybe for roughly 30-40 minutes.

Lately I've been noticing that when I do study at school I'm more productive more so than being at home. So I try to finish my homework at school as much as possible. I get so distracted at home...my bed looks so comfortable after a long day of school LOL

Re: Keys to College Success

I just got diagnosed with inattentive ADHD. I am going to a tech school (NWTC) and I have yet to call their support services (mainly because I forget until its to late in the day!)
but I have a huge test coming up in one of my classes (chapters 1-6, 168 terms plus 10 amendments!!)
and I was wondering if I should email my teacher and ask her if she could at lest tell me exactly what I should study.
Also I was wondering if anyone knows exactly how long it takes to get help for have ADD through support services?

Re: Keys to College Success

hi Ky4!

First, go to your school's disability services office. Find out what you need to do to apply for accommodations.
When I applied I needed the diagnosis paperwork from my doc and a note from him spelling out what accommodations I needed.


It can't hurt to talk with your teacher, but don't expect that she'll tell you.

Re: Keys to College Success

The first thing you need to do is "prove" that you have a "disability" as they call it. As discribed by the ordering Dr. this means your brain simply does not function like others do, in either certain situations (testing, studying, etc.) Or certain subjects (Math) are not registering as "making since." In my case I complicate most college level Math; meaning I read into the equations too deep, making it unsolvable.

Sorry ADD moment there, So...um ya, What was I talking about? Ok, The Dr. has to type a note saying you have this "disability" and you will give this to your DSS Manager.

The next step is to fill out a form the manager give you requesting the service.

The DSS Manager will then send forms in the mail, advising you to hand deliver them to your instructors, in my case, She also emails all my instructors with these forms (awesome).

I take all proctored exams in a Learning Center behind a closed door by myself with no distractions (i know sounds too good to be true). It has helped me greatly. I am officially an all "A" Student today!

PLEASE TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS SERVICE, YOU WILL BE MUCH MORE SUCCESSFUL.

Re: Keys to College Success

I am in the same exact situation as you! I'm pre-med also and I have trouble with math and chemistry but I got an A on my bio final without studying. I also find I can study more at school than at home. I'm happy I'm not alone in this!


What college do you go to?

Hey! I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but nobody has responded to this thread besides you in over six months. Any questions/comments, etc. that you have, feel free to start a new topic about it! (nobody really reads these old topics anyways).

Re: Keys to College Success

I would go to the disabilities office and they would give me my test in a quiet room with double the time.

This is all I personally really needed. Depending upon your needs I know of some students who have someone read the questions to them

Re: Keys to College Success

Yes I do homework the day of, always. I study the day before a test. I can't do well if I study the same day.
