This is a joyous time in the junior scholars’ lives. AP testing, subject tests, finals, and the SAT/ACT are coming up fast! Over the course of the next two months, I’ll be taking all of these formal tests. After that, I have summer homework for the five AP classes I’m taking next year, along with another SAT test and studying for my driver’s license. Who knows, I might even go crazy this summer and get a small job as well.
Why do we spend so much of our lives towards our efforts in school?
Preparation is everything in school. The more that we students prepare for these tests, the better scores we’ll earn. These can gain us credits as well as show colleges that we are prepared for their rigorous courses. Summer homework will prepare us for our upcoming AP classes so that we can start the new school year off strong. The more we study for our SAT test, the better score we can get, and the more likely we are to get accepted into a good college.
Why is it important to be prepared?
The harder we try in school, the more rewarding it will be when we get accepted into college, graduate, and get a job. The amount of effort we put in throughout the years of our adolescence will directly impact our futures. The amount of time we spend on our studies makes the difference between a low paying job and a successful job.
What’s stopping us?
Our time limit, amount of money, and lack of motivation stop some of us from filling our fullest potential. Sometimes, we have so much on our plates that we can’t do everything as well as we wish we could. Many people also struggle with the financial costs of college, and have to settle for community colleges because they’re cheaper, even if they were capable of making it into a well known, higher level college. The main problem my friends and I have is our lack of motivation when we get swamped with work. However, we’re battling our bad procrastination habits together to become better students.
What does the future hold?
I don’t know, but I’m looking forward to it!
