Students: how many hours a week (outside of class) do you spend reading, studying, and doing homework?
In college, more than 20 hours. But it was usually within the 24 hours before a test. :-)
5 or more a weekday and even more on weekends so def over 15. yay no social life!
I'm an undergrad in college. For the last few years and in high school I was able to get straight A's by doing minimal homework and studying. I'm one of the lucky few. But next year it will be different because I'll be taking higher level classes.
Right now I'm in accounting, economics, psych, a computer class, and a Greek mythology class. I guess I'm just very good a retaining information in class, and then good at distributing my studying
When I was completing my Masters I would take one 3 unit class every eight weeks and I would spend about 15 hours per week on that class - it was online
I have that much in an undergrad class and we have to go to class 4 hours a week for 8 weeks, too. If I didn't have three other traditional classes it would be okay.
I go to class 20 hours a week and spend about 40-60 hours outside class studying.
It's my life. I look forward to moving beyond this phase of it though, haha. I'm so tired!
Right there with you...
I can relate too. I don't spend as many hours, but I only take 12 credit hours since I have a family and job to juggle too. I go nonstop 14-18 hours a day every day. It's exhausting.
2 hours a day, typically
Ugh... A thousand?
Probably around 50.
A thousand sounds about right to me too.
My classes are really easy this semester.. I'm taking 15 hours. 2 is from a freshman seminar class and 1 is from chorale.
So for the other 12 hours, I pretty much mostly remember the material from listening in class and reviewing a bit at home.
I'm in history, psychology, and theatre. All three of those are mostly interesting to me.
And my math class is relatively easy. And I just realized that it is the last math I have to take... ☺️☺️☺️☺️
I'm taking 16 credit hours and I usually have about 16 hours of work, but every fourth week that goes up to about 24 hours.
See I'm taking 12 and have around 25 hours of work - most of which is one 3 hour course. Blah!
That is pretty insane! What level course is it?
It's just a 270 - stats. I graduate in December and I've had 450 level courses with less work. It's accelerated, 4 hours a week for 8 weeks, so I expected 1.5 to 2x the work of my normal classes, but we are covering 5 chapters a week!
Gosh that sounds awful! I'm a freshman so my courses are all 100/200 level. Next semester I'm going to a big Uni and they told me all the gen ed classes I need are full so my only option is to take 300+ and I'm incredibly nervous about it!
It is awful. I also have a 3 year old, a husband, a house to take care of, and a part time job. If I'm not around soon on here it's probably because I'm in a strait jacket! I wish I was kidding...
Good luck to you next year! :)
I'm a senior I do no work
Ah yes, those were the days. I think I took 3 art classes my senior year. :)
Enjoy it and don't forget your study habits, because if you go to college...
Some classes I have HW like AP Stat and AP Gov.
I see. :) my senior year I had honors English and that was my only real class. It was great. Ha
I take 12 credit hours but one course is an accelerated 8 week course. She assigned around 15 hours worth of work over 5 chapters of material this week. I spend about 10-12 a week ttl on my other 3 courses, and I only actually read for my lit class.
I'm curious if my workload is as absurd as it feels to me.
I have no idea if students is a real thing for targeting purposes. If not, I apologize. Those who aren't students, answer for when you were? :)
