3 Hopes and expectations about study


Record your six reasons, but this time try to place your reasons in rank order, beginning with the reasons that seem most important to you.


We hope that this process has made you think (though probably not for the first time) about why you are beginning to study the arts. You may already have realized that the process of writing down your reasons, though, takes your thinking a little further. And when you are asked to decide whether one reason is more important than another, you are beginning a process of identifying and ranking points. This is a process that you should find very useful when studying independently.
