Raise your hand

It will help you do better in school!

Your thoughts (23)

Being confident in school can be hard. You may be nervous to ask teachers to repeat something or raise your hand when you know the right answer to a question.

Do you feel like this is making you seem like you're not as smart as you are?

Getting good results in school means you can have even more choices when you leave school. It will help you study further or even do better at your job if you start working straight away.

Here are three tips on doing well at school even if you’re not super confident about speaking in front of the class.

  1. Ask questions sooner than later. It’s better to ask questions now than to be confused for weeks.
  2. Stay behind after class and talk to teachers one-on-one if you’re really nervous to speak in front of the whole class. Always ask a friend to stay with you so you’re not alone.
  3. Don’t pay attention to people who tease you for wanting to do well at school – stay focused on your end goal and don’t let negative thoughts (especially from others) distract you.

The most important secret is remembering that everyone’s afraid of getting judged – even the most confident people. Being brave and asking a question doesn’t mean they’re not scared. And the more you learn to get over your fear, the more confident you become.

I have learned a lot not to be afraid and shy and to be always confident

wow a very vital lesson learnt because learners will always tease you the only thing you have to do is just ignore and continue with what you came for at school

me too hey. ...thought I was the only "teacher" around jere

Hi Melow. I can understand how being teased by your classmates makes you feel down. You don't have to worry about them the only person you need to be concerned with is yourself and you need to take advantage of how much you can learn in class. Do your best always and don't worry about kids who aren't as ambitious as you. Here's an article I think can help youhttp://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-future/head-class/
