Grades starting to slip, dont know what to do? - November 1st 2013, 08:29 PM

I used to get all A's on everything, which is normal for me, considering I am in the gifted class. But so far this year, my grades have gone down a bit, I got a C on a science test and a C on an essay, along with quite a few B's and still some A's. What's wrong with me? Why can't I keep my grades up like I used to? My mom is flipping out over my lower grades, but I feel so stupid considering I am trying my hardest? But I am starting to not really care anymore, which is what scares me most. I don't know what to do?

Usually, as you go through the years of school, you'll find that it does get more difficult. If you were doing well before but things have slipped and you've changed nothing about your style of studying or your approach to education, then you have to change that approach. Improve it somehow - dedicate more time to it or try a different learning method. Keep focused and keep pushing; they could just be isolated incidents - they'll happen for time to time. I'm sure they'll come back up.

Some good advice so far, but I'd also add talk to your teachers! They're the ones giving you the marks, so they should be able to tell you what it is that your work is lacking.

Feel free to email/PM/VM/whatever me if you want. I'll answer as soon as I can.
