GPA is the #1 factor in getting accepted into your dream Ivy League and top-tier colleges. Knowing this, high school students stay up until 2 AM studying for APUSH, AP Chemistry, or writing English papers. However, no matter what you do, you can’t seem to get an A on your APUSH chapter test. You’re always landing at the B and C range. No matter how hard you study, it doesn’t work. You start blaming your teachers for giving you too much work and you start to lose motivation.
“With my B’s and/or C’s, will I be able to get accepted into my dream college?” In the worst scenario, you start to doubt your capacity as a student. Am I smart enough? Good enough?
Today, I’m going to share with you why you weren’t able to get A’s on your quizzes and tests even though you studied. This episode has nothing to do with surface-level and generic strategies such as sleep early, don’t procrastinate, ask your friends, create a study group, and the like. This is a powerful episode that will shift your mindset and identity so that you can get your first A on your next chapter test.
