School Tips Please

Hello. I am a high schooler looking for advice on how to keep concentrated on school work. I would like to really know, because I want to get amazing school grades. Sometimes I get handed to much homework, and it's way too much for me to handle. Any tips?

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
aehrensperge1

Re: School Tips Please

The thing is, if I work fast, my work is not quality. The grades are based on quality, and a little bit of quantity.

As you get older, you'll find that this philosophy also applies to other things (or is it the other way round?).

Re: School Tips Please

To get amazing grades requires:

1. Discipline
2. Hard work
3. Native intelligence

The more of 3 you have, the less of 1 and 2 you need. If you've not got much of 3, then you need a commensurate increase in your 1 and 2.

However, even the most disciplined, hardworking person lacking in 3 might simply not have the ability to get good grades.

The best advice I can give you if you want to do well in your schoolwork, is to do your homework sooner rather than later, and make sure you go to bed early enough so you're not tired in the morning.
