How to Be Consistent With Your Grades
Have you ever gotten a report card back that you were ashamed of? Do you feel as if you need to be more consistent with your grades? Do bad grades bring you down? Do you have those kids in your classes who always seem to be on top of everything, and do you wish to be like them? If so keep reading, because this article may just have the tools you need to succeed in your academic career!
Work out the classes you are struggling with the most.Look online if your school has an online grading system, or ask all your teachers. Write down the subjects that have grades below your standards. If you are very tight with your grades focus on subjects below an A. If you are a little less uptight about your grades, focus on grades below a B. C's, D's, and F's show that you aren't a very consistent student, so we must get rid of these grades first.
Check to see if you have anything missing.If you do have anything missing ask if the assignments are still worth any credit. Even if it's only worth 50% (an F) if you turn it in late, it will increase your grade a little bit. 50% is always better than 0%! Then, turn in your missing assignments right away! This will show your teacher that you are determined to get your grade up.
Check to see which assignments you didn't do so well on.Ask your teacher if you can make up these assignments, or redo them. Not all teachers allow this, so don't get your hopes up!
Ask about extra credit.If your teacher gives you some extra credit to do, do a thorough job, and try your hardest not to make any mistakes, that way you can bring your grade up as much as possible. After this, keep on the lookout for any extra credit your teacher offers to the entire class, and make sure you take advantage of EVERY opportunity so you can your grade sky-high and if you miss an assignment it won't bring down your grade to a grade you don't approve of.
Create a study schedule.This can be a LIFESAVER. Make a schedule ranging from Monday-Sunday, and allow yourself at least one rest day, and one day to study for upcoming tests. On each of the days you'll study one to two subjects for at least 20 minutes per subject. For example:
- Monday: Vocabulary
- Tuesday: Social Studies and Physics
- Wednesday: Math
- Thursday: Spanish and Chemistry
- Friday: English and Science
- Saturday: REST
- Sunday: Test day
Write down any assignments.This is a MUST! Buy a planner, or a small notebook to write down your assignments everyday. We're only human, and unless you're some kind of hybrid-psychic you can't remember everything! When you get home, check off the assignments until you have done them all!
Don't procrastinate!If you procrastinate, then all the progress you've made so far will be ruined! Something I've discovered is to set goals and rewards. For example,afteryou finish my math homework, you can play video games, or call your friends. Goals and rewards like this make you feel you need to get things done, but don't rush, it can cost you a few points off your finished product!
- Put post-it notes around places in the house where you spend most of your time with reminders to keep up with your study schedule.
- Give yourself a time limit, for example: I have until 4:30 to finish my paper for English; this will give you some time to relax in the end.
- Ask your parents if you get a reward for getting straight A's, this will motivate you to keep your grades up.
- If you are unsure how you did on your assignment ask your parents to review it before you hand it in.
- Try studying with music, it keeps you a little entertained, even though you might me studying about the most boring things in the world.
- Don't stay up too late the day before a test, because you'll be tired and not focused when the test comes along.
- Don't cheat on tests or assignments! It may seem as though you won't get caught, but when you do it's going to be really embarrassing, and most of the time you'll get a 0 which will do nothing for you.
- Stick to your schedule! Leave reminders on your phone or planner so you don't forget to study!
- Don't suck up to your teacher for a grade boost! This makes you look extremely irresponsible, and it makes you seem annoying and desperate.
- Not all teachers are going to be easy to deal with! If there's a teacher who won't give you extra credit or let you make up assignments, don't fret, just make sure you're on top of everything from now on in their class. You did your best.
