No one likes to fail, but failure is critical for improvement and success. Alevels are a lot different to GCSE so don't be surprised if initially your marks aren't want you want them to be. In this blogpost I will be discussing how to improve from failure.
Firstly, you must analyse where you failed, was it the maths questions? Was it a lack of understanding ? Was it silly mistakes? this stage is essential here you are dissecting where the failure stemmed from.
Secondly, you must ask how can I improve from this. Do you require more practice in the maths questions? Do you need to read back on the topic and correct your understanding
of the topic? Do you need to just practice exam techniques to avoid silly mistakes?
Thirdly, take note of where you went wrong and add the correction to either your notes or school booklet or you could add sticky notes to your textbook so later on when revising it highlights which part you weren't so good at and ensures it's not neglected.
You must be asking yourself these questions to fully understand what is wrong and then you must put them into action, I would recommend to do this after every end of topic test you do to ensure each topic is fully understood in the best of your ability to make it easier for you when revising for bigger exams.
If you don't learn from your failures you will keep making them, so make the change early on so the new and better habits remain and you see the success of it during your exams which are much more important.
Don't be ashamed or disheartened by failure as it is the best way to success as it highlights your weaknesses!
