Study method to get over 90% in High Schools




Hello everyone,

My son is in grade 9 High school in Mississauga and has been getting on an average of 80- 85% for last 3-5 years in all subjects. Inspite of submitting his assignments etc on time, getting over 80 in tests, his percentage somehow doesn't go beyond 85.

Since he plans to go for Computer Science after 12th , we, as parents, feel that he needs to get in the study habit to get atleast 90% to secure admission in good Universities.

Can anyone who has been achieving over 90% in high school (or their parents) can advise us, what else he needs to do and what should his study pattern be regularly?

Will appreciate any suggestions from the experienced! Thanks.

Worried parent :(

Practical and Realistic Advice from the battle ground.

We had the problem and we did an analysis of all the kids who were doing well versus ours.

This is applicable to Mississauga and surroundings only.

Our kid was in the same boat but was having a Indian Hindu name. If it is a name from any other religion than the Christian name it would be difficult to start with and then comes the skin color.

If you think that the Desi teachers born and brought up here would be more favorable then BOY YOU ARE WRONG!. They are worser than the whites.

The best possible solution(check with your kid and please post his response here if I'm wrong) is to KISS UP TO THE TEACHER.Ask your kid how the girls do better than the boys and why girls are always near to the teacher post lecture making small chit chats, while boys stay away in the back.It is well known how certain kids compliment the teacher on their dress, hair , some on the pet peeves of the teacher(one teacher in Mississauga loves Simpsons and he is always inundated with simpson info before and after class).

After every class he should rush to the teacher and say it was a good lecture and he couldnot understand certain concepts. Even if he knows he should do. He should compliment the teacher as many times as possible. He should always keep telling the teacher he/she was the best teacher he has had all these years.He should always go the teacher and keep telling them that he is trying so hard and he feels that he has not done well in the class, but he has high aspirations soo that he can push the 85 to 90's.

ALWAYS attend all the Parents Teachers meeting with professional attire and speak good english. Compliment the teacher and present your kids aspirations, your background and always request more attention from that teacher. The kid can also volunteer in the groups moderated by the teacher so that he can get closer to the teacher and where his efforts can be observed.

Unlike DESH here your teacher can make or break your kids career. For Eg: A 95% + can get a scholarship of 12,000 while a 80% + will get only 2000 bucks for 4 years.

Hence the best option is to KISS up to the teacher.

Please promise me that your kid will try this and give us a feedback to us in CD so that it will help others.

We recently had a parent teacher meeting with our child (4th grade) teacher and asked the teacher what is required for our child to move from a B/B+ to higher grades. The teacher was really nice and explained how the grades are broken up. So essentially a B is for doing all that is expected, an A is for doing all that is expected and a little more in an excellent manner and an A+ is for doing over and beyond what is expected in an amazing manner.

Also you might want to remember that for University admissions what is required is not only academic performance. As all the students applying will be having similar grades what sets students apart is their extra curricular activities and volunteer involvement.

Nope, I disagree.

After the influx of Desi's by ship loads we have converted the admission into a Marks Race.

Who has higher average gets the best course.

Every kid knows how to \"Produce\" the necessary certificates for volunteer hours and there are no interviews.

If you want I can give your kid a certificate for volunteering and you can give my kid another certificate.

There are kids with 1000 hours of volunteer hours and is it practical ?.

You Decide.

It is a scam. Do not get caught up in rhetoric but BE PRACTICAL.

I understand this is the situation in Canada...there is discrimination all around, even in schools. But somehow some Indian kids , I mean, shy boys , still seem to do well and secure 90+%.

I would like to ask all parents who have had this success among their kids to contribute and how did they do it or what kind of help they sought. It is valuable information worth sharing for all us desis and help improve the status of all Indian people (present and in future) in Canada.

1- Before Blaming the system/discrimination/teacher etc., check your child -wheather he/she is studying or wasting his/her time in other activities.
2-Put them in good tutoring services. If you can find good tutor they can clear your doubts & push your marks by 5 -10%
3-Be nice & polite to all teachers in school
4- Go for Volunteer work Actually ( No Buying of Certificate)
5-Concentrate on Studies not on FB & other Social Networking Sites
6-Take Proper Rest Everyday
7- Be Social , try to talk to different people
8- Forget about good/bad things about your native country ( India/Pakistan/....) etc, concentrate on what is there in Canada.
9- Do not complaint much & be Happy
10- Even you score 80-85% still there are lot of opprutinties are there .It is not end of World if you can not get 90%.
11- Go for overall development of your personality.

I hope this will help.

PS_ this is from a parent whose child are scoring always more then 90% . Now they are in Grade 12. Also, was scoring more then 90% in India 8 Years back

Desi driller,

Considering your's /(kid's) experience in maintaining a good score even in Canada, would you like to throw some light on THEIR STUDY TECHNIQUES here in high school?

His marks seem pretty good already. Does he not have enough grades to qualify for admission already or is he aiming for schools with requirements of 90%?
What universities is he aiming for?

..............................

Since he is in gr 9 now, the competition is likely to get more tougher in next 3 yrs (sad but possibly true). We have been told that in UoT(for eg.), you need 90% for easy admission for Computer Science. So, since he aims for that, he needs to achieve a higher %.

So if he can get admission close to home, depending on good %, he will have many choices, he won't have to stay on campus etc, or seek additional financing. Its good to start a life without student loans/debts.

(I think current generation students are more smarter, they themselves realise the importance of education and want to aim for higher goals. Even if they choose to do Music, students still like to study in a good University to get their Music Major.)
