With the news of accredited grading becoming an option for students in the coming months, below are some tips on how you can approach the next few weeks with your best foot forward.
You have 3 full months to improve your in- class grades so there is still time to turn a leaf. Don't give up now at the last hurdle.
Engage with your teachers, show up to all classes, ask questions and show an interest in your subjects. If you are struggling, ask for help. Show initiative.
Put all your effort into doing the best you can in every assignment & test over the coming months. Do your homework and assignments to the highest standard.
Organise your study lifestyle. organise your notes. Use a weekly study planner to keep track of all work assigned. Make to-do lists. Work consistently.
Show diligence in your work. Start paying attention to the presentation of your work. Always hand up assignments on time.
Act on your teacher's feedback. Don't just briefly read it & ignore it. Do exactly what your teacher advises and make those improvements in the next assignment.
Remember to treat your teachers with respect and show them you care. They are experts in their subjects and they are there to help you, so 𝙖𝙡𝙬𝙖𝙮𝙨 𝙖𝙡𝙬𝙖𝙮𝙨 listen to their feedback and ask for help if struggling. As teachers ourselves, that is all we want- to see students take on our feedback and improve. Your teachers have your best interests at heart and will give you the best grade possible, so make sure to put in the work consistently from now on and make their job somewhat easier. It will be worth it.
Also remember, any work you do between now and June will benefit you whether you choose predicted grading OR written exams so these tips will benefit ALL students; Junior or Leaving Certificate.
In terms of organising your studies, we have free study and lifestyle planners to download in previous posts for you all to stay on track.
Best of luck guys.
