Work Outside The Classroom
It is so easy just to slack off and be lazy when you’re outside of school because you feel like you have done enough work at school and that you deserve a break from it all. This mentality will only get you so far and it’s the people who do work even away from school who will obtain the higher grades. Yes, doing work outside of school way before exam season seems a bit of a handful but that’s what A-Levels are about and that is how you will get the grades that you want. The people who do well at A-Levels and in any level of education for that matter are the ones who go the extra mile when it comes to their education. You can’t just rest on your laurels and expect to get astonishing grades or even half-decent ones with A-Levels. It takes practice and you will not get enough practice during school hours so make the most out of the time you have away from school to try and grasp the key concepts in whatever subject you wish to revise.
In order to be effective outside of school hours, you have to limit yourself from going out too much. You need to spend your hours wisely and if you wish to pass your exams, then spending an extra hour or two everyday to focus on your education is something which will prove to be beneficial down the road. You don’t want to be that person at the end of the exam with your head down and embarrassed to talk to anybody because you didn’t put in the work when you were supposed to. Believe me, I know! I have been at both ends of the spectrum. I have had exams which I absolutely smashed and I was willing to talk to anyone and everyone about it because I knew that I put in extra work for that particular exam. On the other hand, I have had exams which I know, in hindsight, I should have done much better on. These exams were the ones in which I was lazy and didn’t put in the required work outside of school hours so when I had completed the exam, I was very unhappy and didn’t want to speak to anyone regarding the exam. I regret not putting in the work for certain exams and I do not want any of you guys reading this to feel the same way. So put in the work, revise smart and get those top grades!
