Raising your GPA requires getting good grades in classes, which is done by engaging in the class, getting organized, studying often and getting help when necessary. These habits must be done each academic term to consistently do well in school.
- Be engaged in classes
Attend classes as often as possible. Pay attention to the information your teachers provide, and ask questions whenever you don't understand something. Participate in discussions because being involved in class helps you retain information.
- Stay organized
Keeping your school supplies and notes organized reduces the time you spend looking for them, which leaves more time for studying.
- Study consistently
It's easier to learn material gradually instead of cramming information at the last second. Stay on track with your classes by setting aside time to study every week.
- Get help when it's needed
Visit your professors during their office hours if you have any questions. This gives you a chance to get your questions answered and shows your professors you are serious about getting good grades. You can also become friends with other students who are focused on getting good grades. Spending time with intelligent people who work hard builds a positive attitude and encourages you to do the same.
