Becoming a Straight-A Student
Becoming a straight A-Student isn’t that hard with the right kind of guidance and habits. It mostly comes down to your lifestyle, how much time and money you have to dedicate to this cause, and how willing and you are to study and do the work.
Starting off becoming a Straight-A Student you need the right kind of organization. You always have to be neat and organized, because when looking for notes to study with or paper to write on it always comes faster if you are organized. I would suggest that you go buy at least twelve folders so that you have more than enough just in case something happens to one. Folders are not expensive either they are relatively cheap and are even sold for 10 cents apiece down at your local Walgreens, CVS, or Staples. Along with folders you are going to need the right utensils such as pencils, pens, highlighters, and erasers. Again these are all relatively cheap and can all be bought in packs that cost less fifty cents.
The second part of becoming a straight A student is doing the work. You must do all homework and class work given to you because teachers count that in their grade books. Personally most teachers I have had have counted homework for at least 20% of your final grade and class work for 10%. While this may seem meager or insignificant, it can be the deciding factor in if you get a B+ or an A-, and if you haven’t noticed, this article is trying to help you attain A’s not B’s. Another part of the work would be participation in class. It is always a must for a teacher to hear your opinions on the subjects or topics being studied, so they know if you are understanding the material or not. Regardless if your opinions are right or wrong say what you are thinking because teachers do not care, as long as you are involved in the class discussion. Classes that I have seen the most points achievable for participation would be Literature/English or World Civilizations/ US History.
The third part of becoming a straight-A student is doing well on tests. To do this you must completely understand and study well for your tests. Again homework and class work display themselves again. If you a show a mastering of the homework and class work given it will be easier for you to do well on the test because the test will be mostly based on those two. Studying is also another guiding factor. Depending on the level or intensity of the class you should at least study for 30 minutes and at maximum should be for an hour and a half. If an hour and a half is not enough for you, remember to take breaks and keep the blood flowing, because if you study more than that uninterrupted than you will not be able to retain the information because of the lack of enjoyment while studying, and when it comes time for the test it will be a struggle to remember what you tried to learn.
In conclusion, you have seen from this article that it is truly not that hard to become a Straight-A student. It depends on whether or not you’re going to put in the time, money, and effort to be organized and to also understand your work well. There is no easy way to success, and you should always work for it, and once you have attained Straight A’s you will feel truly accomplished.
