Aiming for that A? This is how I did it...
I've realized that I never ever forget something once I've fully understood it. This way, you're being educated, and at the same time you won't have to really have to worry about 'forgetting' if you truly understand what's going on.
How to go about doing this ?
Keep the questions coming. That's what your teachers are there for! Continue asking them for help until you really understand what's going on, so much so that you feel confident about that particular learning area.
I've always found it difficult to study at home because that's my 'chill zone' and I just have to rest after a long day of hard work!
But I figured out how to overcome this.
Drinking a glass of water then going back to my room, sit beside all my books and take a deep breath. This really works for me because it energizes me in a way and because I'm hydrated, I study for a longer period.
Because I hate, with a passion, to stay up till 2:00am, I literally stopped. I need my sleep.
However, I still get about 4/5 hours of study time everyday. To get my homework out of the way, NO MATTER WHAT, as soon as I get home I get it done before 6pm. Then from 6-9pm / 7-10pm I study (I do this during exam times). This ensures that I get enough study time while getting enough sleep.
