It’s easy to become a good student, but it does take dedication and a good attitude!

Being a good student means making the most of your strengths and acknowledging your weaknesses - it isn't about intelligence at all.

Read on for tips on how to sharpen your study skills and make the most of your education!

Be Organized
Organization is key. If you turn up to class with a broken pencil and a bag full of crumpled paper, you’re not going to find it easy to take notes.

Try to keep all your classwork separate. The best way of doing this is by using a different folder or notebook for each class, and tear out all unwanted paper. This way, you know exactly where everything is, and you don’t have to leaf through pages of doodles and games of hangman before you find your homework.

On the subject of homework, make sure you do it! Don't just copy it from someone else - you won't learn a thing this way.

If you organize your work, you’ll feel more prepared to learn. Think about the first week of school, when all your notebooks are new and orderly – the quality of your notes, and even your handwriting, is usually better than normal. This is because being organized puts you in the right frame of mind for learning.

Pay Attention And Participate.
It’s important to concentrate in class, but it isn’t always easy. Learning is going to be tricky if you’re tired, hung-over, or distracted by the person sitting next to you.

Make sure you’re getting enough sleep, and grab a coffee before class if it helps. Sit next to people who you won’t be tempted to chat with, and avoiding taking a desk at the back of the class.

The temptation to nap or daydream is far too great if you’re not part of the action, which is why you should participate when possible. If there’s a group discussion, get your point across, and be sure to listen to everyone else’s.

Ask Questions When You Don’t Understand.
You won’t be annoying your teachers by doing this – most are just happy that you’re showing an interest, and will be glad to help you understand better.

Having a good relationship with your teachers will help with this. If you’re polite in class, pay attention and don’t cause trouble, your teachers will be much more willing to help you. It’ll probably make it easier for you to approach them, too.

Good luck with your studies!
