How to improve academic performance

There is no magic way to correct your grades from 2 to 5 - for this you will need knowledge and effort. Working on your homework and following the recommendations described in this article, you can improve your grades in the shortest possible time.

Be careful in the classroom. 

The best you can do to improve your grades is to focus on new information. It is very easy to get distracted when the teacher says something that you are not interested in, but you still need to be careful. Listen to what the teacher says, and take notes and ask questions.

Outline the lesson (lecture).
Inspection notes are a great way to improve grades. Summaries come in handy for your further studies. Moreover, they serve as proof that you are serious about your studies. Do not write down everything the teacher says, but jot down the basic information (the most important things can be written in more detail).

If you do not understand something, make a note about it to ask questions to the teacher or read additional literature.

Keep notes by hand, not on the computer. This way you will remember information faster.

Ask questions if the lesson’s material is not clear to you (it doesn’t matter if the teacher presents this material or if you read it in the textbook). 

Smart people do not become smart instantly - they learn and ask questions if something is not clear to them.

If you are embarrassed to ask the teacher a lesson, ask it after the lesson (when you are left alone with the teacher).

Do not think that the teacher will be angry with you for asking questions. Most teachers are happy if they turn to them for help, as they see your zeal and interest.

If, after explaining the teacher, you still do not understand the lesson material, try to find an explanation (or additional information) on the Internet. On YouTube, you can find videos with lessons in basic school subjects; there are also specialized forums and other sites on the network where you can ask questions. If it is difficult for you to write an essay work, you can always contact a service for writing essay works, for example,

Learn more.

Probably, at the beginning of the year, the teacher will introduce you to the curriculum. Do not limit yourself to this program, but study additional material (after consulting your teacher first).

Have a snack during the day.

You will not be able to concentrate on the subjects studied if you are hungry. Between lessons, have a snack and drink to focus on the lessons and better understand the material.

Food should contain protein that will give you energy. Try snacking with almonds or soy nuts.

Develop your own learning style.

Each student has their own learning style. Some people remember stuff better when they move. Others need to look at visual materials (pictures, cards). Still others need to listen (words, music). Think about something that will help you quickly and easily remember the lesson material, and develop your own learning style.

For example, if you are an audio, ask the teacher if you can record lectures on a voice recorder (or similar device).

If you cannot determine your style of perception, take this test (or any other similar test on the net). You can also analyze your perception style directly in the classroom.

If you are visual, draw diagrams or other diagrams that visually present information intended for memorization.
