Dear fellow students,
Not everyone is aiming to be the top student – neither am I. However, you need to understand your strengths and weaknesses and set an achievable goal to move towards your ambitions, regardless of where you want to go after receiving your results or which fields you are interested in. We need to think thoroughly before making any decisions. Preparatory work does play a vital role and it has to be done early. It is fine to change your mind regarding your ambition since we are still teenagers, but do not make it too vague for yourself so that you can figure out a clearer future. Do remember to discuss your plans with your parents, other family members, teachers, friends, and whoever can lend you a helping hand when you find yourself in a dilemma.
If you want to make an improvement in your weak subjects, the simplest and quickest way is to find a good tuition teacher who can coach you personally at your own time. However, having such a tuition teacher does not mean that you can sleep during lessons in school, as you may find out that your school teacher and tuition teacher may have different ways of imparting knowledge which may both be useful for you. Asking questions in the classroom is another method to improve. It is not a shameful act; instead, it is an easy way to solve any problems, both academic and mental.
All in all, play hard, study hard, enjoy the new facilities, and do better!
