First of all, you need to change the attitude to the lessons. The class is 45 minutes wasted. At least half of each session is a concentrated useful knowledge. If you take in information in class the homework will be left not much time.
Yes, grades do not always reflect the level of your knowledge, but "five" is pretty much simplify life both for admission to the Institute, and in communication with the family. The first rule of getting good grades – wait for good questions in the classroom. There are always topics that are closer to you or simply better remembered, and it occurs in the study of any subject. In the classroom, having heard a question on a similar topic, feel free to pull the arm. "Five" is provided.
Always agree to perform the abstract or presentation. Search information on the Internet or books – a good way again to understand the material and clarify are not completely clear moments that much more interesting than reading some pretty boring sections defined on the house. Do not take a prepared text, to sense from them a little. In addition, the teacher can ask questions.
In any case, don't mess with teachers relationship. Customized friendly teacher might turn a blind eye to the flaws or even make a discount, it is possible to try to agree on the transfer of delivery of the article in a day or two. But negative minded teacher could find fault with is not the case, to seek out the slightest error and understate. But it is not necessary to openly curry favor with the teachers, it can configure the class or group against you.
Always follow the written homework, if you know the topic, it will not take much time if the lesson you "float" writing assignments will help you understand. As for the oral tasks, if you listened carefully to the lesson the teacher will be sufficient once or twice flip through the textbook on the relevant subject.
If you love to read and do it quickly, be sure to read the set literature in the unabridged version. In literature classes is very noticeable when pupils are responsible for a brief presentation of the classics. If you read slowly, read the abbreviated version, but podstrahovyvayas himself to the study of the Internet sources, so you can imagine the text more fully.
But the main secret of good success is initiative. If you are familiar with the subject, pull the hand, do it as often as possible. This almost guarantees you that at the wrong moment (for example, you for some reason have not done the homework) the teacher, you simply will not be asked and you will not spoil the final grade.
