## 6 steps towards raising your GPA:

### 1. Attendance

First of all you should be attending your classes on a regular basis, not only for the educational purpose like the explanation of the material but also in order to give the teacher a chance to know you.

### 2. Class Activity

You should try and be as active as possible in class, by asking or answering to questions in order to understand the concepts discussed properly, to understand the task you will be given during examination period or even take advantage of special opportunities like extra points.

### 3. Study

You might not be able or may not want to open all those books on a daily basis and you find yourself swamped with work during exams. Why not try a weekly basis of freshening up the memory with the concepts learned the previous week.

### 4. Office Hours

Don’t let any misunderstanding or difficulty you might be having with a class stand in your way towards a greater GPA. Go talk to your class master every time you feel you need more information.

### 5. Library Assets

You might find useful educational tools that will help you both with research and a quicker learning for your classes. So don’t avoid that place and while you’re there, don’t avoid the smart kids either, because they might be an unexpected source of info or tips.

### 6. Organization and Reward

You should be monitoring your time properly and designing special hours for work and for all the other activities in your life. Once you get one of the busy tasks done you should reward yourself with at least a ten minutes break or something else that motivates you further.
