Starting with my freshman year of high school, combined I made a 80% grade This is the same with my sophomore year. Last year English and Latin were my hardest classes. While I had low C’s in English and Latin, I held a B+ average in all of my other classes. My freshman year I did not really understand how important it was for me to get the upmost best grades I could, so I could get into a good college. Now that I am a junior, I have a better understanding on really how important it is to keep good grades. Already this year I have started off on a better foot; holding an 87% average. The better grades that I get now, the better off I will be for getting into the college that I would like to attend. Some changes that I have already made are: I am starting to make myself study every single night, even though the test might not be in the next few days. Farther into the school year I could make the changes of getting help from my teachers if I start falling behind. Furthermore, the new program at CBHS, MAS, is a mandatory class that is taken 3 times a week to help with my grade in any

When school begins in the fall everyone is somewhat ambitious, but as the year continues on the desire to come to school diminishes at a fast rate. You may think that freshman classes are hard, but I hate to break it to you but they only get worse. You will need to put some effort into all of your classes, especially because your overall GPA is based on the types of grades you received freshman through senior year. People often
How am I doing in school? Well … As Carl Bard once said,” Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” When I started high school I didn’t want to take on more responsibility, in
Both the struggle to adapt to a new learning environment and graduating from a small private Christian high school, which taught me great values, but regrettably did not offer AP chemistry or physics classes, resulted in me not being adequately prepared at the time to excel in these courses, regardless of the amount of time and effort that I spent studying. Furthermore, by changing learning methods and studying intensely, not only did I significantly improve my GPA, but also in time excelled in upper-level science courses like organic chemistry, microbiology, parasitology, biotechnology and biochemistry. To further improve my GPA, after college graduation I decided to take courses in sociology, psychology and retake courses in physics and chemistry. My drastic improvement in school, which started in my sophomore year, allowed me to have an average GPA of 3.75 for the remaining six semesters. Currently, I am planning on taking more courses in the spring not only to continue to improve my GPA, but also to keep
Obtained a 4.22 GPA for the first semester of my senior year. Increased my cumulative GPA to above a 3.9. Will be Inducted into the National honor society for the second year in a row at the end of the year. Maintained honor roll throughout my entire high school career,
It is said that college years are the one of the most adventurous moments of our lives. I, just as you will also in late September, am about to embark on the track to my future career. One thing that hits me when thinking about returning to school is GPA. From what I gather, maintaining a 4.00 GPA quite overwhelming, because I have to take eight classes this semester. Did you know that a normal college students take only four to five? It’s
In doing this SWOT paper I realized just how much I put others before myself. As I thought about what to put in each category I noticed all of my ideas were questioning what I do for others. This paper made me realize how important it is to take time for myself and tend to my own needs as well. Without helping myself I cannot effectively help others. I noticed it was easier for me to come up with my weaknesses over my strengths. I think that may be because its important to me to see my weaknesses over my strengths so I keep my mindset on always trying to improve. But there is a downfall to that mindset which is always worrying if I'm good enough. Having that worry has a lot to do with my diagnosed depression and anxiety. I have several ideas
My first semester of college was by far my most difficult, as I struggled with anxiety which was physically and emotionally taxing. As expected, this had a negative impact on my academic performance. The grades I received were the lowest of my academic career. I am not asking you to excuse my grades, as I have since corrected the problem, I do want to explain the reason behind the slow start and change in my grades.
I am applying for section leader because, I feel I can give back to the program. This program has grown me as a person exponentially. My personal strengths are that I have endured allot. Being in scouts has taught me there are 2 parts to being in a group. First you are a follower, you grow as an individual and learn new skills. The second part is being a leader, to now take what you have learned over the course of time and show it, and teach others . I feel as if I have grown as an individual following others, that I can now take the next step into the leading aspect of an organization.
The results of my strengths from the VIA Institute indicated what my strengths were in order from 1 to 24. The high ranked the strength the more I used it in my everyday life. The results made me a little concerned as to weather or not I did it right.
When it comes to my schoolwork, I tend to be extremely conscientious, diligent, and ambitious. Some of my academic strengths are my ability to think critically, and my organizational skills. A weakness I have is test taking when I take tests I usually get nervous and forget the information that I learned. I become upset with myself if I earn a C on a test or in a class, and begin to consider what I could have done differently to receive a higher grade and apply my feedback to my next assignment. I am this way when it comes to my studies, because ever since I was a little girl my dad used to get upset with us if we got anything below a B in specific subjects. For example, if we got a C in math my dad would say, “You don’t know how to count?
Spring 2017 was the worst semesters for me in comparison to my entire college education. I returned back to college after leaving for six years. I started back spring 2016 at Cuny Hostos . I took 5 classes in the spring and Fall and one class over the summer. I
Some basics can help you experience how a university works. When I was a freshman the first classes that I took were the basics. As the matter of fact, the advisor even encourages students to begin with the basics. The reason is being that a lot of graduates often chance their mind about their major. According, to both authors Amanda Hambrecht and Spencer Posson, taking the basics first it gives you more time to think of what you really want to do for your vocation. By showing how different professors are in their way of teaching or grading, how the homework would be and what they expect you to know. It can also affect the GPA of every undergraduate, the best thing you can do to keep your GPA up is being more careful about who your professor , by taking with friends or people that you know had have that professor and can
One of the most important decisions I have made is transferring my major to International Economics and Trade in my sophomore year. From then on, I find my potential to be a quick learner. In my new field study, I had to adapt to the brand-new subject in a short time. Although my foundation was weaker than my classmates, I studied more profession courses than them, about 25 hours per week. Besides, I paid more attention to business practice and spent an extra 18 hours on extra-curricular activities every week. It was under this circumstance that I completed all the required courses within two years, which took my classmates three years; the final GPA was 3.2, which ranked top 22% in the class, and my annual GPA kept increasing to 3.7 in my
