Getting good grades

It’s all about hard work

Your thoughts (62)

One of the things I have learnt as a student is that everyone has a strength. Some people are very good with words and reading so they get the best results in English. Some other people are good at doing things with their hands and love subjects like home economics and technical drawing.

For me, I have always been a good student but I had one big problem – Mathematics. I really wanted all my results to come out in flying colours but I just was not doing well in that one. I kept failing and it really hurt. Like, you can imagine what it was like to come home and show my parents my F math result again! :O

So I decided that I must change this failure to success. I also wanted to do well in the course to show girls can do well in Math too. Boys keep acting like Math is only for them and I don’t agree.

What did I do? I found people who were good at Math and who were willing to study with me and help me pass. These people became my friends and they even wanted me to pass more than I wanted it for myself! Good friends are the best o!

They did their best for me and I also did my best. We planned a regular tutorial class to help me understand the course before I had to take the final examination.

How did the exam go? Well, I did better but I still did not do as well in Math as I did in other subjects. In fact, all the studying helped me do even better in the subjects that I like best.

The main thing is my results got me admission to a good university to study what I really like. I am happy that I worked hard and did my best to understand math but I am also happy that I did not force myself to take a university course that needs a lot of math when I have other great talents.

The best thing is that my wonderful tutors are still my best friends today. One of them, Helen, wants to study mathematics and engineering when she goes to university. So who said math is only for boys!

Hey Ella600! Thanks for the comment. You are in a better position to answer these questions because you are the only one that knows how good you are in certain subjects. We advise that you talk to a trusted adult and also a counselor for advise. We hope this helps

Hey iniabasi! Thanks for the comment. In calculating your period/menstrual circle, note that the first day of your period is also the first day of your menstrual circle and the last day of your period is not the last day of your circle but the last day of your period. The duration/flow depends on the individual. The last day of your cycle is the day before your next period starts. For example, if your period started on the 1st of April and your next period starts on the 3rd of May, your cycle will be 2nd of May. This means that your cycle lasts for 31 days. Your new cycle starts again from the 1st day of your next period. Please note that your period can be delayed at sometimes and can also come earlier than normal. We hope this helps.

Look big sis i am not trying to sound like a racist or something but almost all the pics on the articles are muslims why we are christians here and we should get some respect also muslims are not the only people in the big sis so put the space and don't u dare not answer my question:-(

Hey Misty! Thanks for the comment. First of all, Springster is not a religious brand and we do not favor and religion and we are very sure that we balance everything that we do. Secondly, you are being tribalistic and it is shocking to see this coming from you Misty because as a Springster, you see others as humans first before you start to talk about religion and other things. Nigeria is also not populated by only one religion so ig you can live around muslims without complaining, why should you complain about a picture of muslims on a site like ours? Thirdly, if you check all the articles properly, you will see that there is a balance of all tribes, religion and race because we do not favor one over the other. Lastly, we believe you could have passed your message across without being rude to Big Sister. The fact that this is an online community does not mean that you have the right to speak to anyone in any manner. You rounded off your comment in a rude and insulting way and that is very very wrong

Haba, that's so unfair and gross of u to our always there sister. Its better u tender ur apologies

Alright i accept that am wrong though it's a long time but am sorry big sis and fortune hi i think paris2 is cute also sorry it's been long and gemini thanks for the apology

Look big sis i am not trying to sound like a racist or something but almost all the pics on the articles are muslims why we are christians here and we should get some respect also muslims are not the only people in the big sis so put the space and don't u dare not answer my question:-(

Hey Beep! Thanks for the comment. You need to first of all stop hating maths because the moment you hate something, you will never pay attention to the details of that thing and that can be applied to your comment. Open your mind and do not hate it. Ask your friends to help you with this subject. You can also tell the teacher so that they can help you. We hope this helps

No matter how I read I never beat the girl that take first why

Hey Temitope! Thanks for the comment. Starting with this mindset is not the right way to beat the girl that takes first.If you believe you can never beat her, then you will never. The moment you believe you can beat her and you work hard towards it, trust me, you will be on top of the class. We hope this helps

Namesake you can do it , just put more bit of efforts

Hey golden! Thanks for the comment. Have you tried talking to your parents about how uncomfortable you feel studying nursing and also the challenges you face with the mentioned subjects? We advise that you let them know about this and also about how comfortable you are as an art student. Please also talk to a trusted adult that your parents know or even a teacher in your school so that they can guide you while talking to your parents. We hope this helps

Hey kama! Thanks for the comment. Since you are interested in it, it will be easier for you to understand it. All you need is to talk to someone that understands the subject well and ask the person to explain it better to you. You can also join a reading group for that subject with people that are good in it so that you all can share knowledge. We hope this helps

Thanks big sis

Hey Sti! Thanks for your comment. Having sex without protection can get you pregnant, Even making use of protection is not 100% safe as well, you can contact STDS, The best way for you to know if you are pregnant or not is to see a doctor or we advice that you speak to a trusted adult.
