Underperforming to overachieving: how to excel at school
School is one of the most important parts of a person’s life. You learn so much not only about the academic subjects but about life, yourself and other people. It is important to recognize your potential and what you can do to achieve the most in the time you are a student. I will present some easy ways to enhance your academic performance and be able to pass all the tests and exams you want, to raise your grades.
What do you want to improve on? There must be a certain subject you need to get a better understanding of. Ask your teachers for feedback even if they don’t know you as a person they will know you academically better than you know yourself. If there is something you have always wanted to learn or improve upon. Do it! Write down a list, goals and how you will achieve it. Again, specific and realistic goals!
Another way to improve is to receive help. I think that a tutor is the best way to raise your grade because it gives you the ability to discuss subjects with a knowledgeable peer. Or become a tutor! I has been proven that teaching another person helps you understand the study material better and more in depth. To do this you can ask your closest friends to from a study group with you and volunteer to lead it. You will be able to discuss and exchange valuable knowledge that will benefit everyone.
Last but not least, give yourself some credit. You are working hard and doing your best. Do not stress about mistakes, learn from them. Try and stay as calm and relaxed as possible to have a clear mind. This will help you retain information much longer. Make sure you are healthy and happy above all! Studying will give you only the opportunities, but you need to create the life that will accommodate them.
