  1. Manage your time well. Make a time managemant plan for your assignments and stick to it. Allot 30-45 minutes to studying without distractions or interruptions then take a 15 minute break then go back to studying for another 30-45 minutes and repeat.
  2. Figure out how you learn best, and take advantage of that. Some people learn best through visual, some through audio, and I personally learn best through writing things down over and over again. Figure out what works best fro you and focus on that.
  3. Don't procrastinate and wait until the last minute to cram for a test. If you try to fill your brain with a lot of new information all at once, you'll overload it and stuff will slip through the cracks. Space your studying out the week before and take it in small increments. You're more likely to remember it that way.
  4. Get good sleep. It is tempting to stay up late before an exam to get in as much studying as possible, but cramming is not the most effective method. Your brain requires sleep to move information from short-term memory to long-term memory, and if you negelct sleep before an exam, you run the risk of losing that important information.
  5. Don't let yourself get behind on assignments. Stay on top of it. Don't wait until the day an assignment is due to work on it. The due date is not the "do" date. Staying ahead of the game helps eliminate unnecessary stress caused by impending deadlines.
  6. When working through a long list of homework or studying, start with your hardest or biggest tasks first. With those out of the way, you will be much more motivated to finish what you're doing and move on to something new.
  7. Don't use your phone or watch TV while you are studying. When you are multitasking and trying to text or watch a Tv show at the same time you are studying, your brain splits its focus and can't fully concentrate on retaining the information you're studying, making it easier to forget things. When you sit down to study, eliminate all distractions. Use your 15 minute breaks to be on your phone or other media. That also serves as a good reward and motivatior for finishing your studying. Give yourself something to look forward to.
  8. Get involved in other school activities, such as clubs and sports. Academics are not the only thing that matters. Being a well-rounded student helps expand your thinking and looks much better on college applications than just having good grades.
  9. Keep everything from your core classes (like English and Math) for future use and reference. It has served me well, and I find myself going back to those basics for help all the time. I've even reused a few things.
