• Take up first the subject you most dislike, once you have done this, rest of your work will be easy .
  • Do not hesitate to ask your teacher or your clever companion things you do not grasp clearly . Never leave difficulties unanswered as this will put you in greater difficulties later.
  • To make sure that you have understood something thoroughly use these tricks:
    (a) Pretend that you are explaining the lesson to another to see if you can do it well.
    (b) Make yourself your own teacher and question yourself and answer honestly (don’ t cheat).
  • Do not continue working when you are tired, walk around the garden, or talk to a friend or have some other pleasant interruption, but only long enough to refresh your lessons and not tending to waste time.
  • Get enough exercise every day, it keeps the mind fresh.
  • Do not cut down necessary sleep in order to study . It will hurt you later.
  • Lastly pray often to the all-wise and all-knowing God to help you make progress in your studies.

  • Never omit the lesson or homework assigned, if you do, it is like missing a train that you can never catch afterwards.
  • Daily revise the work done in class, and make sure that you have understood everything clearly and thoroughly.
  • If memory work is assigned, learn it overnight and repeat it first thing in the morning.
  • Always take down in your diary the work that is assigned for the next day.
  • All home work should be done neatly and the day’ s work always dated. Each new homework should be done on a fresh page.
  • As you grow up make a daily time-table for yourself for your study (the different subjects in order of difficulty, the most difficult one beginning first) for your rest, recreation etc. In this way you will learn to be a person of regular habits, a most valuable asset in later life.
  • Revise at the end of the week all that was taught during the week.
  • If you don’t keep high expectation in front of yourself, you’ll probably settle for something less.
  • High expectations lead to high performance, and low expectations to low performance.
  • We teachers expect that you children.
  • Not only do your homework but that you should think about how you do it.
  • Consciously Formulate statements about how you study with the aim of working to improve your study skills.
  • The more you can analyse your own thoughts and actions, the more control you can take over your lives, and that’s the real point of school; to help you to be self-reliant.
