How I didn’t lose hope when I lost HOPE!

Now WE ALL know that losing the HOPE Scholarship for the first time is a bloodcurdling experience! Thoughts begin to swirl through your head as you see your life and education flash before your eyes, and you literally feel like everything is over!! Well, at least I know that’s how I felt. However, one of the greatest things about HOPE is that you have that one chance to get it back with hard work and perseverance.

Losing my scholarship meant that now it was time to crack down and get my educational life together. Here are a few steps that worked for me.

1. Start assignments the day they are given.

The earlier the better! You don’t want to sit on any assignment because it’s due on a later date, time WILL eventually creep up on you!

Of course this is an elementary statement, but it’s VERY essential. The one day you miss class can be the day the teacher decides to have a crazy pop quiz or even better, an extra credit opportunity worth a great deal of points!

3. Take advantage of extra credit opportunities.

If you’re lucky enough to get a teacher that hands out extra credit… TAKE IT, DO IT and DON’T COMPLAIN. Not many professors give extra credit, and who doesn’t love a few added on points to your final grade.

4. Find the best study location and technique and don’t stray from it.

This is essential to making tests a lot easier for you.

5. Make sure to read over your notes before class.

It feels great to be able to know every answer to the professor’s questions. Not only does it make class much simpler, but you also don’t have to push yourself overboard with studying when it comes to test time because you’ll already know most of the information.

6. Participate in class as much as possible.

When your teacher knows who you are, there is a greater chance that they will favor you a little. Participating in class shows that you’re taking the initiative; even if you get the answers wrong, trying is much better than not putting in effort at all. Like my Pops always say, “It’s better to be loud and wrong, than wrong and silent.”
