Hello cuties, Meand @rvdianse decided to do a faves pages together! I am honestly so excited for this, I have waited for a very long time to make a favourites page and I finally decided to do one with @rvdianse . So here is Voquecity and Rvdianse’s Favourites!
High school is a frustrating time for everyone. In the end what most students have to say with our experience is a big ol’ “F You!” Here are some tips that we have compiled based on what we wish were told our freshman year to help all the students transitioning to high school.
Report cards: Your SEMESTER GRADE is what ultimately matters. Your quarter grade will not be seen by colleges, but it still counts toward your GPA. So don’t freak out if you get a B or even a C for one quarter, if you work really hard the rest of the year you can still have an A as your final grade in the class. Thus if you get a C one quarter work your ass off the next quarter to get an A, that would average out into a B (depending on how high the A and how low the C was before) . Or if you get an 89 one quarter work for an 92 the next. Midterms are taken into account when calculating the first semester grade and final exams are taken into account when calculating the second semester grade. *When applying for college, they will only see your first semester grade. However it’s still important to keep up the grades because colleges ask for a final transcripts where they only see your second semester grades (which is your final grade overall) and if you’re performance has decrease, they are allowed to withdraw your acceptance.
What is a quarter?: In our school system, a quarter lasted 9 weeks. Thus when we received our first report card, it indicated that the first quarter was over. The next report card indicates the second quarter, the average of the first and second quarter grade make up the first semester grade. Since there is 2 semesters, in total there was 4 school quarters.
What is a semester?: The average of two quarter grades makes a semester. There are two semester grades in a year. The grade you get each semester is what will show up on your transcript.
2. Go to tutoring. If you don’t understanding something, staying quiet will seriously cause more harm than good. Being afraid of looking stupid is no reason to fail your class (it’s more likely that the other students in your class don’t understand what’s going on either and are just waiting for that one brave soul to ask a question-be that brave soul). Go get the help you need. Don’t just go once, go until you actually understand the material. Be active in class-always ask questions and answer the questions teachers ask. It’s important to also practice the material on your own to really test your understanding.
3. Make friends with your teachers. Seriously. They are the one grading your work in the end and often, college and scholarship applications require recommendation letters from an instructor. Even some prestigious school clubs that will look good on college applications require you to have a teacher recommendation. Thus, don’t be afraid to be that kid that sucked up to the the teacher or was the “teacher’s pet”. Being friends with your teacher will not only be beneficial for your grade or college future, but it also creates this incentive to do really well in the class.
4. Take AP classes (or anything type of accelerated programs like IB, magnet program, etc.) . Even if you’re not an excellent student take AP classes. Why? Okay for me personally (M) AP classes helped raise my GPA dramatically. An A is a super A, equipped with a little cape and everything. An B is an A. An C is a B, etc. You may not pass the exams, but that shouldn’t slow you down. It helps keep your GPA high and helps you develop study skills that will help you tremendously in college. So take as many classes as you can! Take some your first year, you can handle it. It is doable. Many people will make you feel as if you can’t do it. Keep a positive mind frame and study, study, study! AP will help you although it will break you, it will always be worth it in the end.
5. DON’T BET AGAINST YOURSELF! Never think that you can’t do something. Or you’re not good enough, or your dream is impossible for you. Why are you betting against yourself? You are truly all you have, you’re the only one to live your dream, so be amazing. Count on yourself! NEVER bet against yourself.
6. You honestly don’t need a massive backpack. You don’t. You’re only going to use so much in a day. You’re going to need separate folders for your classes. A pack of paper and notebooks. You can either get separate notebooks for each class or get a big notebook where you can keep multiple subjects in there at once. For me (K), it was extremely useful to have separate notebooks for my math and science classes as there was a lot of notes to be taken, and before an exam, it acted as a great source for review. Keep a small binder handy for your paper or any miscellaneous files. Have a pencil pouch equipped with pens, pencils, an eraser, and a highlighter. If you really want to be fancy, you can also carry a mini stapler.
7. Bring your own snacks. You will get hungry all the time. Also carry around a water battle to keep yourself hydrated. Those long walks from class to class will take a toll on you.
8. Freshman year is IMPORTANT! A lot of people will tell you it is easy and it doesn’t matter. But it does! Freshman year is you’re base if your base year looks bad then you will suffer all the rest of your high school career trying to bring up your GPA. Freshman year is your starter GPA, make it easy for yourself and pay attention to those easy classes. You’ll have a good base and later, say you get a B during your junior year, it won’t have as much as an affect compared to if you totally screwed up your freshman year. The better your do your freshman year, the more you’ll succeed throughout high school because you’re already in the habit of working hard and achieving goals you’ve set for yourself!
