identify the reason why you currently have a bad grade is it because you were procrastinating? is it because you do a poor job on assignments? is it because you don’t pay attention in class? is it because you didn’t understand the concept? is it because you forget tiny details or forget to double-check? whatever it may be, it’s important that you figure out why you’re not doing well so that you can address it before it’s too late.
set a study schedule figure out when that grade will become final and how many tests you have left before it’s too late, whether it be the end of a trimester or a semester. now, plan out when you’re going to study the concepts that you don’t understand and review past material to make sure you covering everything. if you have the time on weekends, it’s nice to preview upcoming material!
talk with your teacher if you show your teacher that you’re willing to improve and that you truly care, they may offer you extra credit or at least help you improve your grade. don’t be afraid to ask them questions. i sometimes stayed after school to ask my teachers questions and asked them to help me over concepts that i didn’t understand. they may even let you retake a test. remember: you’re going there to ask for help, not to complain.
find a tutor or join a study group if you need help study groups / tutors are really helpful! they can simplify things for you and help you focus on your studies. there are lots of study groups on tumblr and you could probably find a tutor for free by finding someone who needs volunteer hours. (lmao that’s how i earn some of my volunteer hours ahaha). there’s also a lot of resources on the internet!
turn in all assignments do your best on every single one and turn them in on time. even the late assignments can count. it’s better to have a low percentage than to have a complete zero.
do your best on every test/quiz/exam those are the ones that will bring your grade up, so do your best! review the chapter and practice a lot of problems. you could even ask your teacher for practice questions! go over your old assignments as well because those are the things that will be on the tests as well.
it’s going to take effort and discipline, but i believe that you can do it! i hope this helped and good luck! feel free to request here + see more helpful posts here !
