    1. I second this.Careful not to summarize vaguely tho. Make it condensed but still incorporate whats necessary. Hard to quantify, experiment with it (btw #teamLifeSci here too)

  5. Arts student- I pretend that school is my full time job. 9-5 I'm always focused on school. Breaks between classes are used to do school work. After that I cook myself a good meal and then work again for the rest of the evening. This applies to the weekend as well. I start my essays months ahead of time and work on them slowly. I always get a few of my friends to proofread each one so that there is a few eyes on it.

    Arts is a bit difficult because its subjective most of the time... there's not right or wrong answer. But honestly if you can manage to get 90% on the papers of the class there's generally a good chance to do at A level for the rest of the course.

    And lets be honest, I have no social life and spend 100% of my time committed to school.

    2. I would recommend doing less. If you're spending all day hashing out assignments then don't do that after dinner. Find some time for yourself, excersise, and have other reasons to stay in town aside from school. Not for everyone, but for me having a life improved school performance because it motivated me to get my shit done.

  6. 1) Go to class
    2) Pay attention
    3) Have superior memory and analytical capabilities than most classmates
    4) If you don't have 3, study harder than 95% of classmates (not worth it imo, but I'm lazy af)

    1. ^Agreed. Though I only go to about half my classes. Study the day before the exam and still get 80s.
