Procrastination affects grades and is a waste of time. Some teens see no point in doing the project so they waste their time until the last minute which can lead to stress, depression, guilt, etc. Their grades can also be affected by procrastination because their work can be rushed and not as well thought out.

In an article about teens procrastinating from Oxford Learning, it talks about how students will put more effort into something happening today instead of what is happening tomorrow. I believe that this statement is true because it is easier to do no work and hang out with friends. The work can start piling up and the day it’s due you could have an entire project to do. I feel like it’s not just the teen’s fault though because when I don’t feel an effect of the project, I wonder ‘how does it help me?’ Do grades matter more than what we learn? Do you remember any tests from the sixth grade, heck do you even remember the material?

Procrastination is a waste of time that affects teen’s grades and causes them to feel stressed, anxious, etc. To fix this problem teachers should make their assignments feel important and worth their time. Teens should also try doing the assignments before the last minute. Now get out and do something you have been procrastinating. Isn’t that the point of this article?
