School is fun when you know how to budget your time so that you can study and not miss out on the fun side of life. When you have good study habits you will find school more fun than a bore. Here are some tips:
1. Listen to your teachers. Much of the learning happens while listening to the discussion or lecture of your teachers. This is also one good way of preparing for any quiz or long test because most likely, the things that will come out in the test are those that were already discussed by your teachers.
2. Note down important points while listening to the teacher. The act of writing down vital points is already an act of retaining the information.
3. Ask questions. If there is anything that is not clear, raise your hand and do not be afraid to ask your teachers. They will give you extra points for doing this.
4. This is probably the most important tip----read or go over your notes EVERYDAY. Don't miss a day without reading your notes from top to bottom. This is so far the best preparation for any short or long exam. When you make it a habit to read your notes everyday, studying for the long exam will be like a breeze to your mind.
Those are the very basic things you can do to achieve good grades. Set a goal then follow 1 to 4.
