Want to get better grades this year but you are not sure how?
Here are some tips to help make school a little easier, and maybe even (gasp) fun!
Don’t leave your studying for the night before- you won’t remember anything the next day. Not only will you be super tired from saying up all night trying to cram everything in, there’s NO WAY you’ll remember everything.
Make flashcards with vocab, formulas or key ideas you need to know. Quiz yourself if you have a break in class or while you’re waiting for school to start, and it will save you from having to hide a bad test score.
GRAB A FRIEND! This makes studying fun (as long as you don’t wander off your studying too much), and you are able to remember and understand things a lot better when you’re able to discuss it with someone. Or get a whole group together to meet once a week to study and take turns asking each other questions.
Step away from the computer and no one will get hurt. We all know how addicting email, IM, and Facebook can be, but take a break. Don’t try to multitask because we all know how much work actually gets done while you’re chatting with your friends. Get on when you’re taking a break from working, and set a timer for a few minutes so you remember to get back to your homework. When everything is completed, then sign back on.
If you have any other tips that work, leave me a comment! Can’t wait to hear from you!
