Your life is probably busy already. Going back to school will make it even busier. Are you ready, willing, and able to meet the challenges of returning to school?
There are many things in life that can affect your ability to be successful in school. Here’s an exercise to help you identify those things. Read the statements below. Then put a check mark to answer yes or no for each statement.
If you checked no for more than a few items, you may want to rethink your decision to go back to school at this time. It doesn’t mean you have to give up the idea altogether. It just means there may be some things that need to be dealt with first.
Talk to a counsellor at a school or at an Alberta Supports Centre about how you’re going to deal with things that might make it hard to do well in school. Make a plan to deal with any obstacles to your success. There are some things that may always be a challenge. But if you decide in advance how you’re going to deal with them, it will be easier to be successful in school.
