I’m Red-beard The Pirate and I’ve helped thousands of students get killer grades with my book (and I’m even talking about the procrastinators too.)

For $4.99 you can have top-off-the-class grades or it’s free. Want to know more?

The number one challenge facing students is how to improve their grades, and as it turns out this is a pretty universal thing. Almost every student has faced a report card they wanted to set on fire and throw out the window, wishing they could improve their grades – and realizing they don’t have a lot of time to do it in.

There’s no reason to panic. It can be done, and it doesn’t matter how bad you think your grades are. It just takes a few easy tricks.

Here’s why your past grades might have sucked, and what you can do to turn it right around.

Past Grades: Why?

So, why didn’t past grades score as high as they should have?

It’s not you. The reasons for a decline in your grades could be any number of things – but it’s not you, and it’s no reflection on your ability to learn or write a test. Just a few things that could be affecting your performance on the day of an exam or test can include:

  • Stress that has nothing to do with the test.
  • Stress that has everything to do with the test.
  • Things that distracted you while you were writing the test.
  • Things that distracted you while you were studying and might affect your recall.
  • Something you ate the day before or the morning of.
  • Anything that screwed with your focus when you couldn’t afford it to.

If you aren’t happy with your grades or tests are making you nervous, relax – you feel just like any number of millions of students from all over the world, and you’re not as screwed as you might think.

Failing an exam isn’t the end of the world. Nobody is going to judge you, and nobody’s going to shoot you in the face for it. What’s going to happen if you fail? Usually, the worst that can happen is a bad grade and the need to take the test again.

Take a look at these simple tips to improve your focus, take most of the pressure off exams and tests and get those killer grades you know you deserve.

Improving Grades for Tests

So, how can you actually make your grades better? It’s about making the process of studying to test easier. Here’s our best advice for making your exam seem like a breeze.

Reducing the Pressure

It’s the pressure of the exam that gets to most people. When they’ve got to write the test and the clock is ticking, they start sweating, feel their heart rate shoot through their chest and blank on every answer.

This, this is just panic talking. It’s the exact same thing musicians feel when the lights go on and they’ve got a million or so people staring back. It makes guitarists forget their notes, and it makes students forget their answers. Panic screws you every time.

Take the pressure off of writing an exam by not seeing it as an exam at all. Tell yourself this: “It’s not a test or an exam, I’m just going to sit down and answer some questions.”

Once you’re just answering some questions that you probably know the answers to instead of HAVING TO WRITE A TERRIFYING TEST WHERE THE OUTCOME CHANGES YOUR LIFE.

See? Just taking away the element of panic is enough to improve your recall.

Go Verbal

There are hundreds of studies out there that show the benefits of visual and audio recall: We just remember stuff easier if we’ve seen it in action and gotten more involved in remembering it.

Most students don’t know that you can apply to write most of your exams verbally, too – and this can be a big help if you’ve found writing tests in the traditional way to affect your grades.

Even when you don’t do this, you can use verbal cues in your methods to make sure recall becomes easier.

Weird Things for Killer Grades

Did you know that dirty jokes can boost your grades, and that your diet can be what’s been making your grades drop? Here are some of the weirdest techniques that work for better recall and an effortless exam.

Dirty Jokes

It’s common for people to remember things with mnemonics or simple sentences, but sometimes they just don’t stick. Your brain is far more likely to remember facts if you manage to turn it into something hilarious (or dirty) instead of just trying to remember a really boring fact. Yes, this works, and if you have any doubts, try it and see.

Complete Distraction

Want to take the pressure off a few minutes before the exam? Don’t study, don’t revise, don’t cram: Do the opposite instead. Trust that you’ve learned the facts up until this point and stop worrying about it completely. A few minutes before the test, distract yourself with something senseless that has nothing to do with your exam.

As a last note, remember some snacks during the distraction period – the action of chewing helps to improve recall, especially if you also happened to have been chewing when you learned the facts you’re trying to remember.

(And yes, that’s true, you can look it up for yourself.)

Simple Tricks to Killer Grades

How You Will Get Straight-A’s – Impress Teachers – And Having People Beg You To Tutor Them (And It Will Be Easier Than What You’re Doing Now)

Ever met a dope that still scored higher than you?

I know I did. And, believe it or not, it’s more common than you think.

Despite what you have been told, hard-work and intelligence are not the keys to good grades. In a study by Karpicke of Purdue University and Roediger, III of Washington University showed the right strategy can get you remembering 2.35 things for every minute of focused studying you’re doing now.

If you study wrong, you could be plummeting your grade by 67% (or more if you’re using a worse than normal strategy.) And many of the wrong strategies are one’s you’ve been taught to do your whole life!

Once I discovered this for myself, my whole world changed. I got C’s and D’s in highschool. In college, I was near the top of my class for my Engineering degree. Freshman year in college, I knew I had to spread the word.

I worked with one student (D.L, I’ll call him for soon-to-be obvious reasons.) He was going back to college after getting out of prison on a drug charge. He was retaking his English class – with the same teacher. A couple weeks into the semester, the professor pulled him aside and asked him, “how the hell some prison teacher could make him that much better – that fast?”

It wasn’t the teacher.

It makes sense the teacher wondered that. The changes that can take place when you change strategies are astounding.

Every minute you study ineffectively is wasted. Your grades may go up a little but it’s a losing battle. Effective studying skyrockets your scores faster – giving you more time to:

  • Learn more than you ever imagined
  • Improve your health, well-being, and non-academic life
  • Enjoy your time the way you want to

My book How To Study Happier teaches this strategy that let students memorize 2.35 things for every one they would normally memorize. Plus, it gives you dozens of other strategies and stories that can put you on the path to academic enjoyment – instead of just surviving. (And remember, no matter where you are in your journey, it just gets harder from here. Be prepared!)

All my books come with a 100% money-back guarantee – just send an email and my people will refund it – no questions asked.

I want to help you. Put it on me to prove it. Please give me that chance.

Last thing, inflation is making it hard for me to keep prices where they are. Server costs are going up and prices on my books may go up as soon as next week (as of the day of writing this.) So please act now. When these prices go up, there will be no exceptions made.
