How was the term break for you? After those exams, we wope you had a fun time! Some of you may have had a really wonderful time with your family, going on holiday, and spending time with your friends. Whatever the case is, getting back to school and starting the next quarter of a semester can be quite hectic.
As students you will always have to face exams and tests. We want you to know that you are not alone! New topics are being taught in class right now, and it is important to have the right tools and the right attitude! You can do it if you plan well, and if you hang on for the exciting ride!
You may have scored the marks you expected or maybe, you got lower scores than what you’ve aimed for. No matter the marks, if you want to improve, the trick is to keep at it. Your work gets better when you make small changes again and again!
Here are our top tips:
1. Do not give up!
The key to success is to never give up! If you did not get the marks that you expected it does not mean that you are failing. It simply means that you might need to try something new! What do you need to improve to get better? Could your teacher look through your paper and guide you to the right exercises and revision? What you want to do is always give it a shot. If you stop trying, you stop moving ahead!
2. Keep preparing.
When you are learning something, try scribbling your ideas in a map, or with lots of colours! Writing outlines can also help you get a better overview of your work. Sometimes all your brain needs is a fresh perspective! Talking to a friend or your teacher can give you new ideas. Who knows, the best way to understand the subject could be right there. You just need to ask.
3. Get enough rest
A good night’s sleep means a healthy and alert mind. You need sleep to absorb information well, like a sponge! Do you want to stay focused throughout the day? Without sleep, you may not be able to keep going all day, or remember what you talked about in class. Plus, you will always feel awesome if you get enough rest.
So, remember: do not give up, keep preparing, and get enough rest for the best possible you at school!
