A life of a college is not easy; it’s different from what we do in high school. Different schedule, different subjects unlike on high school; the schedule are fixed by the registrar. Students are usually wake up in the morning at 7a.m. to go on school. This is no different to the university/college whose wake up in the morning and attend class on time. But in reality, being college students are not easy and it is need a proper discipline to finish your course on 4 to 5 years. The most problem of the student is not grades but the subject schedule that they are taking. This study is focus on how early class affects on their physical health and psychological, also the academic performance of the students taking up an early class.
Health effects on early class
There are two factors that can affect on students health. The first factor affects on health is sleep deprivation, Kathleen Davis (2018) said that “sleep deprivation occurs when an individual gets less sleep than they need to feel awake and alert”. Lacks of sleep are the most problem of the students that who attend an early class in the morning. It is because each person needs seven to eight hours of sleep every day to avoid fatigue and depress. To be precise, university students are much affected on lack of sleep especially whose taking a class from 7am until 9pm on the evening. “Good sleep quality is essential to feeling awake and alert, maintaining good health, and working at peak performance.”(Epstein, 2016), getting a proper sleep will improve the performance to work/task and it will avoid on being depress. The second factor is skipping breakfast in early morning. Most of the students that have early class are skipping breakfast because they care about not getting late from school regardless to the time travel. Skipping breakfast can lose energy at the morning, “Calories are a measure of energy — the more calories you take in, the more energy your body is able to produce. When you skip breakfast, your body may not have enough energy to perform its daily functions.”(Livestrong, 2017);
