How often do you think about your GPA? You need to have a good GPA to go to the college YOU want to go! Every time I have a quiz or even when I’m working on a worksheet, I think about my GPA. The reality is that every assignment is an opportunity to improve your “Grade Point Average.” One great piece of advice is to study at least 30 minutes every day. While it’s easy to get home and start doing other things, the best idea is to get your homework out of the way first. I don’t do it every day, but it’s something I’m working towards!
Sometimes my cousins ask me to go to their house, but my mom insists that getting good grades comes first. When I ask them what their GPA is, they don’t even know it. Even though they might call me a nerd, I know working hard to get a better GPA is really the most important thing for me right now. The fact is, bad grades aren’t cool, and there are 3 easy ways to get that GPA moving in the right direction!Study at least 30 minutes every night.Even if you don’t have a test coming up, there’s surely reading or smaller assignments to do.
