Even the brightest students can sometimes find themselves academically underperforming, often through no fault of their own. When students find themselves in this situation, they’re often stuck in a rut and are not sure what to do to improve. If this sounds like you, the first step is to work out the reasons why you may be underperforming, and the next step is to work out how to tackle the problem. If you’re not sure how to go about it, the steps we will be sharing each day, will show you what you can do to form an improvement plan to help you achieve the grades you know you’re capable of achieving.

Tip #10: Practice Makes Perfect

Reading is a process. The more you read, not only does your fluency improve, so does your vocabulary and inference. To make it easier, find out what interests you. You’ll be reading heaps of books every chance you get.

Tip 9. Get Vocal

Take centre stage and read out loud. This will help you with your fluency. You will be able to check your pace, and which words you have difficulty reading. This is also a good opportunity to explain what you’ve read to your audience. It proves that you understand what you’ve read.
