 Following are study tips that should help you sharpen your academic skills.



 Study Tips:

High school is an important time to learn good study habits and improve your studying techniques. Here are  a few study skills that may help you succeed.

Writing and note taking are important study skills for high school students transitioning into college.

1. Manage Your Time Wisely

Managing your free time is as important as managing your “busy” time.

2. Organize

Keep a weekly or monthly planner or use a journal.  Relying on “just remembering” can be difficult when your obligations and assignments start to pile on.

3. Identify How You Learn

Find out what works for you. Are you a flash card person?  Maybe you’re a student who writes down vocabulary words 20 times each to learn them. Experiment with new things, but stick to the tried-and-true study skills that have worked for you in the past.

4. Is There a Better Way to Study?

A lot of people cram for tests by studying into the wee hours the night before. Take an honest look at your study habits. Repeated, short sessions of studying are much more effective than a six-hour cram session the night before a final.

5. Catch Some Zzz’s

A good night's sleep has been scientifically documented to be a significant factor on your GPA as well as how well you perform on other tasks.

6. Ask Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask your teachers for help! They aren’t there to scare you; they’re a valuable resource. Students in your class are another great source of information and support. 

7. Hone Those Writing Skills

 Writing and note taking are important study skills for high school students.

8. Study Outside
Choosing multiple places to study will keep your boredom level low and may even help you perform better on tests.
