I hold myself to certain standards that align with corresponding goals. Each semester requires a whole new set of goals I require myself to attain. These goals allow me to reach the best version of myself and allow me to achieve more goals in the future. Giving myself these goals opens new doors and gets my priorities straight. Without these three main goals, my semester could be extremely stressful. My semester goals include passing all my classes with an “A” average, raising my ACT score, and deciding on a college to attend next fall. My first semester goal I would like to accomplish is to pass all my classes with an “A” average. I have managed to achieve this throughout my high school career and would love to maintain this till graduation. The classes I am enrolled in this semester are fairly easy, excluding Dual English 101. Dual English will be my toughest obstacle this semester. This class is more challenging because it is held at a college standard. Passing all my classes with an “A” average will also ensure my spot in clubs such as National Honors Society and BETA Club. This will also raise my grade point average which benefits myself in many different ways. Along with raising my grade point average, achieving this goal could potentially raise my class ranking. Along with passing all my classes with an “A” average, I would like to raise my …show more content…
Deciding on a college could take loads of stress off me and my parents. Eliminating certain colleges is the first step to achieving this goal. This would also allow me to go ahead and apply to insure my place at a university. Applying early could mean the difference of getting in or not at some schools. My parents and I would also have more time to figure out money arrangements and scholarships. Going ahead and getting accepted to college can allow me to really enjoy my last little bit of high school and living at home without much

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
I want not only pass this class, but I also want to get an A. I’ve been wanting to try out for a sport, but I always feel like something is stopping me from trying out. I want to get a few extracurriculars in before I graduate, but I haven’t really gotten into any. I would like to make a few more friends before I graduate, but I am content with the friends I already have. I would really like to change my image, because I feel like the teachers and my peers never get to really see the real me, because I usually keep to myself in
My first goal is to stay on top of any reading in english class throughout the year. I chose this because although I love reading, I’m generally a slow reader and this causes me to get discouraged and fall behind at some points. I plan to achieve this goal by not procrastinating, and trying my hardest to stay focus on the book instead of outside distractions. One way to achieve this would be insuring that wherever I read is quiet and free of distractions. By doing so, this will help me focus on the words, and hopefully speed up my reading pace. My second goal is becoming more physically active. I chose this goal because as the school year goes on I seem to become less and less physically active as I am busy with school work. School is always my top priority, but my
One of my goals this year is to maintain an average of 90% or above. This can be achieved if I devote a portion of my time to study and review my notes every day, even if there is no test or exam for that subject in the near future. I will also complete my homework as soon as it is assigned, because that way, I am not in a rush to complete it so I can take my time to fully understand the questions and concepts. To me, my academics are important, so maintaining a high average is an indicator that I’m doing well in the designated subjects. This is beneficial because having good grades will allow me to have more choices for post-secondary education.
Despite seemingly having a B in Choristers (which I learned was due to an attendance error), I have managed to make all A’s for this semester (an accomplishment I am very proud of)! This surprised me, as I felt that I would have a lot more difficulty getting and maintaining an A in more difficult classes such as MUS 170 and MUS 171. In classes such as PS 210 and WRD 112, I felt more at ease at getting the grades that I did, perhaps because it was more academically oriented rather than creatively as done in my music minor courses. Even then, I still worried quite a bit about how well I was doing and was going to do.
The first semester of school wasn’t the best, but not all are good. Now it is the second semester and everything has re-started. The new semester gives me a second chance to do what i didn’t do last semester.
to me. I have had straight A’s all my school years, and I would like to keep it that way. Even
Overall, I feel quite pleased with my current grade situation. Everyone always feels that assurance they can try harder. I feel I can attempt more than the average student and do better in my classes than I already attempt to achieve. Academics comes somewhat easy for me, but I know I can put more effort into a few selected classes. My current grade point average is 3.8 and I supposed if I push a little harder for a 4.0. Currently, I obtain all A’s. The two classes I lack in are Spanish and Honors Geometry. Spanish does not come easy for me, obviously. Learning an entire new language at this is not easy, so a little extra effort is required. I have outstanding grades in my core classes, as well as percentages. I can use my current academic
I didn’t get an A on the next midterm, but that didn’t matter. I had three weeks left to raise my grade, and that day was about my commitment and work ethic. When the semester ended, I managed to get 95% on my third midterm and my final, and overall got a B+. This past fall semester, I aced Chemistry 2 while being in the top 10% of my class. It is from this experience that I had developed a strong appreciation for work ethic and personal commitment to fulfill the challenging tasks in college and later in medical
A time in my life when I attempted to fulfill my dreams or reach a goal was when I tried to achieve getting straight A’s. It all started when I started to want to go play college baseball. I set this goal because I know that I need to get superb grades to get a scholarship for college. Getting excellent grades will help me get into a good college. Achieving this goal was essential, and I was able to accomplish this goal by listening. Listening to the teacher makes getting perfect grades very simple. When I eventually got my 4.0 GPA, it made me feel extremely thrilled. Striving for this goal taught me that I will not ever give up on my goals. Having good grades is important if I want to get into a good college. If I can maintain
Goals My grades this semester have been satisfactory, but I think they could improve. My short-term goal for this semester is to get straight A’s. All my life I have primarily been a straight A student and it comes to my surprise that earning an A in college is a lot harder. Halfway through the semester I had straight A’s
One goal I have set and plan to achieve in the near future is to have a part time job in or near my college I attend in the fall to help pay for college expenses and needs or wants I may have. Having a job is going to be adding extra stress to my already stressful college life, so I will need to create a schedule to manage my time between studying, homework, the dance team, and leisure time. Another important goal I’m going to strive for in college is to have straight A’s all my years I attend. This is a very challenging long-term goal I hope I can achieve, but if I manage my time wisely and try my best in all I do with extra studying in my weaknesses, I hope to come close to this goal. One important life goal I have set and plan to pursue
After two full weeks of college I have quickly learned that college is very stressful and if I want to be successful I need to learn how to set practical goals and acquire necessary tactics to accomplish each goal in the given amount of time. I have set three goals for my first semester of college to achieve success in both academic and personal areas in my life. I want to receive a 4.0 GPA, only have up to one absence in each class, and be able to run seven miles nonstop, I will complete these three goals all in my first semester of college. With essential goal setting strategies I am equipped with I will be able to accomplish my three goals in the time frame given and set myself up for success for next semesters as a UNC student.
Coming into my first term at North Central College, like every other academic term, I plan out high goals for myself to accomplish and ways to do so. Throughout my freshmen year of college, my main goal was to receive a 4.0 for at least one term, but I did not achieve this goal. When I arrived at North Central College, I changed up my mind on what I have to accomplish. For the fall term and now, I set my goal to be both satisfied with the work I put into my classes and to obtain the information I learned and apply it to my daily life. I pursued this goal on a daily
For my academic goal, I wanted to earn a GPA of 3.80 or higher by the end of the semester. The three steps I took to achieve this goal are important. First, I turned in all of my assignments and studied well for any exams or quizzes. Second, I managed to study for at least 2 hours for almost everyday of the week. This step not only helped me get step 1 done, but it also increased my ability to learn more material. Third, I met with professors about once a week for additional help over course material. Those steps were very successful at helping me reach my academic goal. I was able to stay on track with all of my classes, manage enough studying time to to prepare well for exams and get assignments done on time. Outstandingly, my grades did go up and are still on the increase. After getting great results, I will definitely keep doing the steps I have done over the past few weeks to raise my grades even more.
