Personally I believe there are several skills, qualities and attributes to become successful within academic study such as organisation, time keeping, self-reflection, forward planning, self-discipline and balancing academic and social life.
In my opinion having self-discipline is a major skill for academic studies as this allows you to set time aside where you can study or do assignments. I also feel that having self-discipline this will go on to help in my future career.
I believe that time keeping is an essential skill to have to become academically successful, Having good time keeping skills will allows you suitable time for completion of assignments before due dates and will ensure that all assignments are handed in on time. I also believe that good time keeping for lectures/workshops is essential as this shows professionalism and understanding of the job we will be entering.
