How to get an A+|| Study tips & tricks

Dear reader,

School is starting again soon, and I figured that I had to make a study plan because I didn’t really get high grades last year. I was procrastinating, being lazy and I was just doing random things that were not at all related to school. So, I made a study plan on how to get higher grades and how to stay focused on school. I decided to share them with you, because there might be some of you that could use some help, too.

  1. Make a summary of all the subjects of your textbook you dealt with the same week. When you’re going to study for your test a few weeks later, you’ll already have your study material ready, and you will have studied it all already subconsciously.
  2. Make sure you finish all your homework before the weekend. You’ll only have to think about studying instead of making homework as well, less stress is the key to higher grades.
  3. Make sure to take good notes in class. Don’t just write mindlessly, but write in your own words and understand the things you’re putting down on paper.
  4. Ask questions if you don’t understand things, don’t leave them be; these subjects might reappear in your upcoming test and it would be a shame if you won’t get them right because you were too lazy to ask about them.foto's van camera 012.JPG
  5. Studying steps: make all your homework, make summaries, study key terms and concepts, do a practice test, watch YouTube videos about the subject, reread textbook.
  6. Study for tests over a spread period of time. If you try to study everything in one day, your brains won’t have enough time to process the information, and it won’t stay in your long term memory. Try to divide the curriculum over a few days.
  7. Read ahead; you’ll go to class prepared and you’ll know a little about the things that will be taught.
  8. Make to do lists and plan ahead! You’ll know what to do and when, which will make everything clear; clarity = stress free.
  9. Tackle procrastination immediately. Just make your homework directly when you get home after school; you’ll be free the rest of the day and you won’t have to think about it in the evening.
  10. Clean and organize your desk and room every evening and make your bed every morning. An organized room is an organized and peaceful brain.
  11. Try to explain the things you’ve studied on to someone, if this goes well and you can explain it simply, you know you have studied well. If you have no one to explain it to, try your hamster or your plant, they make great listeners 😉 .foto's van camera 013.JPG
  12. Look back on your homework when studying.
  13. When your phone, laptop or something else is distracting you, put them off, or lay them in another room where you can’t see or hear them.
  14. Tackle big tasks first, you don’t have to think about those when making other tasks, which will be a relieve.
  15. Set goals and do your best to reach them! If you put in your effort, you will succeed!

This was all for now guys, good luck with school and studying! I hope these tips and tricks have helped, and that you all will have a good school year! And just remember: Can we fix this? Yes we can!! (Yes, I just quoted Bob the builder, who knew the dude was inspiring?).

Love always, L.G
