It’s the end of the first quarter of the year and for students who may not have the most secure grades, here are some tips for you.
Firstly, all of this depends on your teachers and their policies. Make sure to read the syllabus they give you on the first day. It may seem like a useless piece of paper, but there may be important information on it if you read it more closely.
If your grade isn’t where you would like it to be, try talking with the teacher to see if there is any extra credit work or just ask them for help on topics in class you didn’t understand 100% the first time.
None of these tips are easy one and done steps, getting the grades you want takes work, effort, and tenacity. No one is going to hand you the grade you want, you need to go and get it for yourself.
Make sure that if the teacher takes late work that you get every missing assignment in that you can, half credit is always better than a zero. Take any opportunity to turn in missing assignments, not all teachers will offer this chance, and even if they do, don’t rely on this, it’s really important to turn your work in on time.
With this tips, I hope you have an excellent end to your first quarter and remember, next week marks a brand new slate and opportunity for all of us to improve!
