A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors I think that even though the school system makes it seem like getting good grades is more important than learning itself, always remember that school is still about learning. Of course you have to focus on getting a good grade while studying, but when you see studying as learning new things instead of just studying for a test, you'll probably become more motivated and enjoy studying more. Plus, if you realize it, maybe you'll even stress about your grades less.
