When thinking about school, everyone thinks about grades. To me
grades are important and they aren’t. Yes, I may receive an “A”
on that last assignment I did. But did I understand it and learn
End of the semester came and I had to “make the grade”. No if's,
and's, or but's about it. I had to make a certain GPA to keep my
scholarships and even my financial aid. Coming from my advisor
in high school, preparing for college semester tests were the
scariest things in the world. She would tell us that if we
didn’t study every night from the 2nd day of class that we would
have a pretty tough time receiving a good grade.
What I found was that yes, you have to study but not every
night. And yes, you may become a little stressed out, but not to
where anyone wants to be around you. Your final grade is the
most important but if you just give it ‘your’ 110%, you will do
just fine. Just some advice from ‘Dr. Sam’:
• Don’t cram the night before, take it in slowly throughout the
• Eat a good healthy breakfast before the test. Your brain needs
food to think.
• Get up a couple of hours early and don’t sleep in 5 minutes
before the test. You need to be coherent.
• Lastly, have a positive attitude, you will do much better.
