How do you get straight As?!?!?
I don’t know if I have bad luck or what, but for 3 consecutive years in junior high, I never got straight As. But here’s the weird part…..
my first year of junior high, I had all As and one 88.
my second year, I had a few Bs here and there….
and in my last year , I got all As and one 89, which is pretty sad because if that 89 had been a 90 I would have gotten recognition for it.
It’s even worse because I’m known to be a hardworker, I strive pretty hard but it seems like I always get bad luck. I don’t think you have to be a genius just to get straight As…..?? I’m pretty nervous because from next year on it actually counts and I’ve got my sights set on wanting to go to college with a scholarship….and you have to be in the top 10% of your school to get one.
Please help….how DO you get straight As??
And you don’t need to be in the top 10% of your school to get a scholarship, or even get into a brand-name university. It’s a great goal to set, but nothing in college admissions is set in stone. I had rather good grades and high SAT scores but didn’t even make it into the top 15% of my class, yet I still got a full scholarship to college.
Keep studying, keep trying to find ways to study, keep improving your studying methods. Find what works with you, which subjects need the most time, then perfect it. When you are struggling to figure out how much of your time to spend studying between subjects rather than struggling to just study, you know you are on the right track. Don’t worry too much your freshman year, grades aren’t counted into your GPA, experiment!
Any college or university worth going to doesn’t only look at your GPA. They also consider what teachers, administrators, and personal references have to say about your work ethic and willingness to contribute to your community.
I have always told my children, grandchildren, and students that I will accept a 70 if they have done their best, but I will not accept a 90 if they have not done their best. In the end, grades are just a number. It’s how much you have improved yourself that is the true measure of your education.
GOOD LUCK! Half the battle is attitude, and yours is positive.
1.STUDY!!!!! Stugying before a test.. dont become a nerd or somthing just study before a test over what you think will be on the test!
2. PAY ATTENTION IN CLASS!!! Dont doodle on your notebook or star e at the cutest guy in class.. TAKE NOTES… LISEN UP TO THE TEACHER! And maybe if you need help ask the teacher.. dont be afraid to ask questions!
3. If you feel like its you And you dont understand it.. get help from a friend a teacher or get an online tutor.. that what i did! Also ask the teacher if she can help you out and give you a tutor or if you can stay after class… so get it?
Hope this helped!
ps. I always study day before test and it has never failed me but I wouldnt recommend it.
