Study Says Procrastination Lowers Grades

A couple of university professors from England studied the link between grades and students who put off doing their work until the last minute... and it's not great.  The survey basically shows that if you want good, or better grades you need to do your work early or ... at the least, on time. Who knew?

From the Economist Magazine:

"Early submitters fared best. Those who handed in their work at least a day ahead of the deadline could expect a mean mark of around 64% (it didn’t make much difference if students submitted essays even earlier than that). Those who waited until the very last minute, however, saw their mean mark fall to 59%—which took them to a lower grade."
