Hello everyone, I’m Mr. Frog HUBient. Welcome to my first instalments of my unprofessional advice catered to brighten your day. These are based off my subjective experiences and may or may not work for you.
High school; the time where popularity matters and your grades determines whether or not you get to keep the PlayStation during your summer holiday. To get good grades, you normally have to study but that takes a lot of time which we simply don’t have time for. We always have to keep up with social life and events, family caterings and the countless hours of grind time to max out our characters. The real question is how can we get good grades with minimal or no study?
First of all, you have to accept the fact that not studying will probably result in a big fat F. F for fail grade by the way. A strategy I personally use to avoid the big fat F is being efficient and spending my time wisely. What I mean is when I head into school, I use all my time in school to do the work I need to do. Since I’m stuck there anyways, might as well use the time to do what I need to do.
Yes, I do agree that studying can be boring especially when the teacher is not helpful and going on about her coffee being too cold at the Maccas drive-thru. Switching on at the right moment when she finally crams all the content, she needs to cover in a matter of the last 10 minutes can be the difference between understanding it now or studying it later for 2 hours.
My next tip is being nosy with the teacher. No, I’m not telling you to get into their business but ask a lot of questions about the assessment and content related to what you need to know. Ask for strategies that they suggest for you to use so those tasks can be easier for you. From my personal experience, the teachers have been extremely helpful and suggest strategies that they used to understand difficult concepts as well as give you extra resources that can help with your assessments (Pro tip: this also work for university level studies). Remember, teachers and professors are there to help and it is their job to teach, if you show initiative in your learning, they will help.
Those are just some quick tips but let me sum it all up for you. Remember that not studying at all will not get you anywhere. Try to be efficient with your time and maximize your work at school (study time) so you can have more free time later. Ask plenty of questions and switch on in class; this will always save time and the need to study that concept extensively later.
That’s all for my unprofessional advice on getting through Highschool without studying (the irony). Hopefully some of these helped you out! Don’t forget to follow all my social media as well as Hubient to stay up to date. See you again to the next one.
