4. Raise your hand
Are grades hassling you? Improve your standing by being more active in class. If the teacher sees you reciting more, asking more questions, and listening more closely, she'll be more inclined to help you out. Think about it: Would you want to lend a hand to someone who doesn't seem interested in helping herself?
5. Make it a group effort
Trying to reach a goal can sometimes get frustrating. S why now get the whole barkada into the act? Form a club and agree to check up on each other's progress. It can be a jogging club, a painting club, or a watch-less-TV club. You can even award prizes to each other!
6. Surf the net
Want to get a scholarship to college or join an exchange program? Plenty of educational info is now online. Most schools publish all their information on the Web, which makes researching all your choices easy. Many sites are also equipped with online application forms so you can jump right in.
