Teachers, parents, older siblings and wider family members – everyone will tell you how important homework is. The sad fact is, they’re right. However, the reasons they give – which may rarely extend beyond “because I told you so” – can leave much to be desired. There are, in fact, many very good reasons why you should do your homework. To inspire you to put all the effort you can muster into every home assignment you get, TopperQ is providing just some of the reasons that doing it is crucial.
1. You never know how important it might prove
Classes don’t just set work for you to do at home for a vindictive laugh – even if it does occasionally feel that way. The truth is, the homework assignments you are set are curated with the aim of giving you the best overview of the subject you can get, prior to any exams/essays. You may, when it comes to the crunch, find yourself looking back at a home assignment you skipped without realising how important it was at the time.
2. The more you learn now, the easier it is down the line
This reason you should do your homework very much leads on from the last one. The greater confidence you have in your subject knowledge when approaching the exam period, the less stressed you’ll get. When you do your home assignments you are essentially revising, just much further in advance of your exams. By doing this you reinforce your subject knowledge through repetition, and by doing so without the looming pressure of an exam it’s much more likely to stick.
3. You learn about more than just the subject at hand
There are life lessons to be gained too when you do your home-study. Your organisation and time management skills will all be improved by regularly sticking to your home-study schedule. The more you do this, the easier it will get too. This is because you’ll gain a greater appreciation of the benefits of doing your homework as early in advance of the deadline as possible. This means you’ll be less stressed about your home assignments, and the standards of what you produce will improve.
4. Homework doesn’t just stop when you leave school
The aforementioned organisation and time management skills, alongside the self-motivation qualities that completed home-study illustrates, are prized characteristics to have in the working world. When it comes to demonstrating these assets beyond your school career, you’ll be glad of lessons that deciding to do your homework taught you. Having to work at home doesn’t stop after school either in many cases. The modern working world means that you’ll likely have to do some work at home at some point too. By then, being so well practiced might just come in handy.
5. It’ll stop people nagging you to do it
Ok, so just because you do your home assignments might not mean people stop nagging you about it. In some cases, parents have been discovered that are even actually capable about nagging you to do your homework whilst you are literally doing your homework. Thankfully, these cases are rare. One thing is certain though, if you just do your homework, you give people no reason to nag about it. That’s all that is in your power to do…fingers crossed it’s enough.
We hope that the above reasons prove enough to convince you to do your homework. After all, turns out it actually is quite important. Your teachers, parents, older siblings and wider family members were right, but we understand that it’s a truth that’s easier to take from TopperQ.
