What makes a successful 6th form pupil??


4 KEY FACTORS

• Attitude
• Organisation
• Time management
• Balancing competing demands

 

ATTITUDES
• You get out what you put in!
• Enthusiasm for your subject and desire to learn without having to be pushed and supervised
• Intellectual curiosity or a desire to find out things and to solve problems using own initiative
• Positive attitude: put difficulties in perspective
• The glass is half full!!

ORGANISATION
• Work regularly and steadily- not all at the last moment
• Keep work materials efficiently and effectively. Lesson notes etc kept in right order
• Make sure you have somewhere suitable where you can work at home
• Do not wait to be set work before you do some: reading, organising, reviewing notes etc.
• BEING A GOOD INDEPENDENT LEARNER- not waiting to be SPOON-FED!

TIME MANAGEMENT
• Minimise stress by keeping a regular routine about when you work and for how long.
• A minimum of 4-5 hours per subject per week outside lessons.
• Work regularly with short breaks.
• Do not ‘over-work’. This causes stress.
• Do not leave things till the last minute. Plan work well ahead.
• Plan fun things to look forward to.
• IF YOU ARE WORKING SIGNIFICANTLY MORE OR
LESS THAN THIS THEN SOMETHING IS WRONG!!!

BALANCE COMPETING DEMANDS
• Very important to get this right!!
• School, home, work, leisure
• You will enjoy leisure more if you have faced up to your academic commitments
• Too much part-time work affects academic performance: More than 10 hours a week is too much

Quote from a Year 10 pupil who has been mentored:

“Having a Year 14 pupil help me has made me more organised and stopped me having so many conducts. They have explained stuff in different ways to the teachers and it has really helped me learn.”
