It can be frustrating when you are struggling with your studies.
If you find yourself in this situation, it is important not to feel overwhelmed. Take a deep breath and read on for our tips on how you can overcome these roadblocks.
1) NOT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING BEING WRITTEN OR SAID
We all know the feeling of sitting in a classroom, totally confused, but everyone around you seems to understand everything and have no problems at all. Though it is a frustrating experience, the solution is simple: speak up! If it is a new topic or concept, you can guarantee that you are not the only person struggling, and your teachers are always happy to help.
2) YOU CANNOT FIND THE MOTIVATION TO STUDY
When you are midway through a subject and it gets really difficult and tiring; it can sometimes feel like you are stuck on a never-ending treadmill of reading, assignments, school and tuition. Do not give up, try to rekindle your passion for studying by going through earlier assignments, personal statements, or encouraging words from others to recapture your love for a subject.
3) YOU RECEIVED A POOR GRADE
Getting a poor grade on any assignment or test can be devastating, especially if you have worked really hard and tried your best. Try not to take it to heart; remember that everybody starts somewhere, and it is important to persevere to work harder and not give up. Read your teacher’s comments, reflect and apply the advice to your next task. If you are not sure what went wrong, schedule a discussion with your teachers to get a better understanding of how to avoid making the same mistakes in future.
