    Preparing for Your SAT

    Preparing for Your SAT

    There is a saying that says, “practice makes perfect.” When it comes to testing you can never practice enough. The SAT is one of the most important tests you will take for entering a college or university. Many people will take in in their junior or senior year of high school. This allows them to take it more than once. If you take the test more than once, you can better prepare and perhaps score higher the second time. When you receive a higher score, it can open the door to attending a variety of different schools. Here are eight ways you can prepare yourself to get the best possible SAT score.

    Top Things to Avoid While Doing Coursework

    Coursework writing is an important part of the education process for any student. Most of the students find coursework a challenging task because even when they do their best in research and writing, they don’t score good marks accordingly.

If they closely view their work, there might be certain things which hampered the quality of the work and affected their academic work as well as career.

    How to Survive High School

    How to Survive High School

    Let me just start this article off by saying that I was in no way “popular” in high school. I went in to it after graduating 8th grade with only 14 other people in my class, almost all of whom I had known since Pre-K, so the transformation into a public school with suddenly hundreds of people in my class who I’d never met was nerve wracking to say the least. My hope is that at least one of the tips below can help in some way or form to whoever is reading it. So I’ll give you a few quick little tips on not only how to make it through high school, but also how to get the most out of it that you can. I’m not about to say anything you that you haven’t heard before, but maybe coming from someone who was in the same spot as you are not too long ago, it’ll give you some reassurance that everything is going to be okay - I promise!

    Why You Should be Using Wikipedia for Research

    Why You Should be Using Wikipedia for Research

    We all know that teachers hate Wikipedia.com. Hate might be a strong word, but educators definitely try to steer students away from Wikipedia. We’ve been taught since elementary school to use sites with domains such as “.edu”, “.org”, but never “.com” when doing research. The teachers have a point. Sites with the domain “.com” are usually not professional or academic websites, and so would not be legitimate or credible for citation. However, just because these sites are not in and of themselves academic sources, does not mean they aren’t useful for research. This holds especially true for sites like Wikipedia. One simply has to learn how to use Wikipedia the right way.

    Student House Hunting

    Student House Hunting

    If you're a student, especially in the United Kingdom, you'll know that searching for a house at uni can be an absolute headache. It was three years ago that I had my first ever house hunt. I was a second year student in university, and my friends and I got together to try and find a decent roof to put over our heads for the coming months. We weren't aware at that point just how bad student living could get.

    Why Videos are Important in Education

    Why Videos are Important in Education

    In general, children feel happy when they view videos when compared to regular lecture class without videos. Children tend to have more interest in viewing videos than listening to lectures in their classrooms. The classroom lecture, whoever the teacher is, does not attract children to listen on a long run basis. Instead, educational videos are a powerful method to attract children towards learning. There are many benefits associated with children who listen to educational videos.

    The Dumbing Dumbness of Our Youth Thanks to our Education System

    The Dumbing Dumbness of Our Youth Thanks to our Education System

    I remember when I was younger, many years ago I am afraid, school was a place kids went to learn about English, science, history, math, perhaps learn a new language or a musical instrument. It was a place where I was taught, no encouraged, to think for myself. I loved to be in a class where we were encouraged to debate the topic of the day. I would purposely choose the least favorite aspect to debate the alternative view, even if I did not agree with it, just to keep the debate lively.

    "Do I count?"

    "Do I count?"

    When I was the International Students’ Officer of my college, I spoke with a fresher (first-year university student) who had recently experienced a nasty encounter where they were verbally abused in town by a resident. For most of us, being a fresher is full of ‘first-times.’ The first time living away from parents; the first time dining at formal hall; the first time sitting in a supervision. For that particular fresher, it was their first time living abroad, their first time hearing those racist slurs, and then discovering with alarm what they meant. And then possibly for the first time, becoming painfully conscious of their race. When I urged them to reach out to groups that specifically support BME students (black and minority ethnic- alternatively known as ‘people of colour’), they asked me, “Do we count as BME?”

    Pushing Beyond Your Limits

    At 44 years old and just weeks away from officially becoming ''middle aged" I decided to take a winter session of intermediate algebra. Lacking a couple of semesters, I had started college in the fall. I had never finished my associate’s degree because I struggled with, you got it, algebra!
