I just finished Grade 8 as an A honour roll, and am now entering grade 9.
Any tips you guys have?

I also got a blizzard cake from DQ! :yeah:

Don't slack in the beginning this is my biggest tip when I entered high school I thought "oh I'm to cool for this, why do I have to do this exam?" But I was absolutely wrong! Don't let girls or friends distract you, your studies are more important than anything and quite honestly, you probably won't be anything without a high school diploma. Currently I'm a student at Harvard University and I'm going to become a Computer Programmer.

Always have your priorities planned out and try to have a minimal amount of extracurricular activities (one or two clubs are fine). Homework isn't a large concern but try to prioritize it first as projects and large assignments can be come at any time. I'm always one to go for extra-credit because it always provides some sort of reassurance for my grade in the future. Your time is your greatest asset in highschool, use it wisely.

Make sure you take honors and ap classes if you want to go to college.

I disagree extracurricular is needed for college or at least it looks good on the college application

Going to 10th
Even tho we don't go the same school and we live in different country I just have to say to you that never trust the people that say 9th is hard and blablabla
listening to them will make you stressed and that will affect you .
as a tip from me focus on your lessons do your homeworks and take your time doing them ,listen and understand what teacher explains,lean well
and I guess that you'll be fine



Oh and forgot
congrats for passing to 9th grade ,have a good year

I never said they weren't good for college but having too many may cause an overflow of work on your palette. 3 is the most I would recommend you can take without overexerting yourself.
