Doing well in school is possible through learning the class material well but doing well is also possible with a very limited understanding of the material being taught in class.
Most students drastically underestimate how valuable it is to learn the system.
By understanding the way school, and tests work you can give yourself a constant boost to your grades without ever learning new class material. For a one time investment, you can permanently increase your grades.
When a student learns to use their syllabus to prioritize their work, they bring their grade up by more than the equivalent time studying.
When you learn a new fact for a class, you may use that knowledge to increase your points a few times through the class.
When you understand a strategy like, you gain more points preparing for the test than you would using that time to do homework, you’re able to increase your points on assignment after assignment forever.
Naturally, all of your learning can’t come from understanding how the class works.
You need some base of understanding to appreciate these benefits but once you have that base, you shouldn’t lose sight of this opportunity.
Learning the system is about finding the “loopholes” to every system you’re a part of. (And there are always loopholes.)
Once you find those loopholes they pay off time and time again and usually don’t require any memorization or studying.
They’re essentially free points for paying attention.
Most students don’t pay attention. They get their assignments and they do them. They wait until the night before their test and they cram. They get their graded papers back and don’t even look at what they got wrong.
They never ask themselves one important question:
“How can I improve my grade WITHOUT spending more time on it?”
Until you start to ask that question, you’re always going to be settling for less than you’re capable of.
You Will Score Near The Top Of Your Class
I can’t promise you that you’ll be the top scoring student in your class…
Look… some folks are willing and able to study 12 hours a day. They don’t have a life outside of school. And they’re willing to throw every second into their scores because… they’re nuts…
but I can tell you this…
You will score near the top of your class…
And it will be much easier than you think.
I know… that’s hard to believe… I get it…
The thing is: most of us were taught the COMPLETE WRONG WAY to become successful in school. It’s like you’ve been running carrying a 50 pound weight for years because these they taught you are so opposite of effective. The fact that you’re doing as well as you are using these strategies is a proof of your intelligence.
Once you drop that weight – and you start studying the way experts through all of history studied – and the same strategies scientists are verifying repeatedly to this day…
Your grades are going to skyrocket.
And… once you get the hang of it… it’s going to feel like…
Well… like you know learning should feel –
