THE SECRETS TO TELEPORTING FROM AN ‘F’-GRADE STUDENT TO AN ‘A’-GRADE STUDENT
Going to school – High School, College, or any institution is one of the steps you take towards achieving your dream of becoming that Doctor, Accountant, Designer…(too numerous to mention) but your grades tell much about how successful you are academically.
Being an ‘F’-grade student does not only make you reluctant to study but also reduces your ego and makes it hard to mix easily with other students. It is not your fault that you are getting ‘F’-grades because I know you have put in your best efforts but if you haven’t done your best, it isn’t too late.
This article is meant to show and bring to the light.
If you can flow in the atmosphere of the points in this article, your grades will surprisingly change. We all may have known that an ‘A’-grade student is the pride of himself, his family, his institution and sponsors, but an ‘F’-grade student is a disgrace to student-hood (not minding if he is actually at fault or not).
I have taken pains to pick point some points that can teleport your grades if adhered to.
It has been scientifically proven that we can retain and recall more of what is heard and spoken than what is read therefore, attending every lecture as much as your strength can carry you and not only being a member of the class but also contributing to the subject matter discussed, is a good way to prepare for exams.
INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO YOUR INSTRUCTORS
Most students hate this but it is very essential to let your instructors, lecturers or teachers know you because this will build a relationship that will help you become more active and focused.
STUDY THE SYLLABUS FOR EACH COURSE
Studying the syllabus for each course makes it easier for you to understand lectures as you have already learnt all you need to know and your instructor only guides you.
ASK FOR HELP
After doing your best in studying the syllabus and introducing yourself to your instructor, some things may still seem like a mystery to you. It is at this point that you ask for help from someone you think can offer such help – a course mate, your instructor or whomever.
Baylor College of Medicine did a study in 2009 that proved that chewing stimulates the brain by increasing the blood flow to it thereby increasing the cognitive responses of the brain. Chewing gum while studying and even before exams helps .
Consistence makes you do think on a regular basis. Train your brain to carry out a routine activity at a particular time of the day and the brain will need no reminder to carry out that activity once it is the time. This helps in reading.
STRENGTHEN YOUR SKILLS
Skills are very essential in our human endeavors and we tend to perform better when such skills are sharpened. Strengthen your reading skills, your writing skills, your speaking skills and you’ll achieve better.
‘Practice makes perfection’ goes the popular African adage. The more you practice answering questions on a course, the more you can answer them in a test or exam. You can also practice by teaching others because the more you teach, the more you learn.
EXERCISE AS WELL AS RELAX
Exercise helps to stimulate the brain and it is vital that you exercise yourself some minutes before reading. According to a study conducted at Notre Dame, students who sleep shortly after studying perform better in examinations therefore, it is very essential to rest as well.
This should no longer be secrets but facts to share with friends and loved ones whom you want to excel academically. I believe that henceforth, your study approach will change and your grades will enormously improve.
