It happens to even the best students. You work insanely hard on an assignment and study for days on end for an exam. Then, the day comes when you receive the grade and you are shocked. It is not as high as you expected. It’s a gut-wrenching feeling, especially when you worked hard and usually get higher grades. However, a not-so-good grade happens every once in a while. It is okay to be upset for a moment, but there are things that can be done to bounce back from the grade.Looking at where you went wrong allows you to see what the teacher expects from assignments and what material might be included on an exam. Knowing the type of questions the teacher puts on exams allows you to hone in on what the teacher thinks is important and not be distracted by material that is not as crucial to the assignment or exam. If you did not study at all or need to study more, you can adjust for that on the next exam. Seeing what mistakes were made on an assignment can give you valuable insight for how to avoid them in the future.Many schools have free tutoring centers that offer help in a wide variety of topics. Some schools even have a tutor that focus specifically on preparing for exams, so if you understand the material but are having issues with how to approach the exam itself, they can help you with that. A lot of schools have a specific place for those who need help with writing and editing papers. Check to see what days and times the tutors in the subject you need help in are in the center. Be prepared with specific questions so you are not wasting time.
