How to study
September 11, 2017
how to study
Patrick - Nigeria
Your teacher will usually give you instructions of what to study. How to study means you read the material and try to understand it. Also, it is a good idea to take notes during class to use as a reference when you study, as well as when you take a test.
See Taking Notes in Class, as well as other lessons in the Good Grades section.

Work hard but getting poor grades
February 1, 2017
I always work hard in school but I have a d- in math an f in science and a c- in geography I'm in 6th grade and I work a hard a a do in ela and I have an A+ in the why am I having a harder time in the rest of the claess
abby - USA
The fact that you are working hard and scored high in the English Language Arts (ELA) test means that you have the potential of being a top student. However, you must be doing something wrong to get the low grades.
Are you doing your homework? Are you good in taking tests? Some students know the material but are not good in taking tests. See Be Good at Taking Tests for some hints.
Also, you might ask your teachers if they can give you some pointers on how you can do better in their classes. It is not easy to do that, but you might get some good pointers. Also, it shows the teacher that you want to get better grades.
Look at some of the other Good Grades lessons for other ways to improve.
Best wishes on getting top grades. I know you can do it!
Motivations for good grades
Topic: Reasons to Seek Good Grades
January 20, 2017
I understand that many students are motivated in their school work to make their parents happy or prevent them from being angry but this is entirely external motivation. Nothing about this is motivation from inside the student. Nothing about this is visionary and external motivation is not necessarily a useful skill to have is it relies entirely on environmental factors. For these, I don't believe you should promote this type of motivation.
Carter - USA
Reasons to Seek Good Grades not only states that one external motivation is to please the parents, but it also gives internal motivations of satisfaction from proving yourself and being able to get into college.

Wants to get an "A" in nine final exams
September 30, 2016
I will be writing my final exams in 3 months from now on. I have not been hard on studies so wanted to know my chances for acing all nine subjects. The exam will be my final year from high school.
I'm learning English as a second language hope you understand the grammar.
Do not get overconfident about being able get an "A" in all nine subjects. Even if you have been getting good grades in tests and homework in all subjects, you still need to "buckle down" and be well-prepared for the finals.
Look over your previous tests, homework, and note you have taken. You could even do some practice exams with your friends.
Be well-rested for the exams, and be sure that you will do your best.
Best wishes on getting a "A" in each exam. That will be something to celebrate.
Wants to pass the fifth grade
August 6, 2016
HI I just wanted to know how can i pass the fifth grade how do i get A in class please,
serge - USA
The fact that you want to do well in school is the first big step. Set yourself a goal of passing and even getting an A in class. Writing that down so you can look at it is a good idea.
Paying attention in class and when you do your homework is important, especially with all the distractions of smart phones and texting. Set aside a time to do your homework with no distractions.
To get good grades, it is important to Be Good At Taking Tests.
finally, you might ask your teacher for tips on getting better grades in class. Often they can help.
Best wishes on becoming a top student. I know you have what it takes to succeed.

I real learn a lot from you. I am a student doing research principles in VET, I am given a task to identify a problem with my classroom, and the problem is "High failure rate among in computer examination trainees". Will that be a researchable topic?
Paulus - Namibia
Are you trying to find the reasons for high failure rate, possible solutions for the problem, or comparing the failure rate in various groups of students?
It is important to be specific in stating your problem and what you want to achieve in your research.
