    Smile I have to study extraordinarily/extra hard

    I have to study extraordinarily/extra hard this weekend to pass the final exam because I've been lazy and careless with my studies all semester.


    Hi,
    Do both "extraordinarily" and "extra" work in the above and mean about the same? Thanks.
