Do you want to improve your grades and succeed in school?
If so, read on because we’re about to reveal 10 strategies that researchers around the world say are proven to help students achieve more.
We’re talking about world-class scientists at Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, Gallup, The Sutton Trust and elsewhere, who have been trawling through the facts and figures to discover what really leads to better grades.
You might be surprised by what you’re about to discover, and you’ll probably by happy to hear that “Doing more homework” is NOT on the list!
You don’t have to figure this out on your own
We urge you not to wing it when it comes to improving your grades in school. You don’t have to go it alone or try to figure out from scratch, which study strategies work because experts have already done the research for you.
Smart students use evidence-based strategies that have been proven to work by independent researchers. They take those techniques and test them for themselves. Once they figure out which techniques work for them, they use those techniques at home in in the classroom to advance their progress every day.
The good news is that when you seek evidence and advice from top professionals, you can save time, avoid failure and quickly accelerate your levels of achievement.
A holistic approach to your achievement
What we like about this list of effective strategies is that it proves a holistic approach to academic achievement. In other words, it doesn’t just focus on study skills, memory techniques and cramming in more lessons.
Instead, researchers have discovered there are many varied factors that combine to affect your progress in school. These critical factors include what you do with:
- Your mind
- Your emotions
- Your body
- Your communication and teamwork with others
