    • Review your notes! This doesn't sound as easy when heard, but it really helps everyone made a good score!
    • Find some good exercising books. In the bookstore, you can find some nice subject exercise books, and you could ask some questions that you can't answer to your teacher.
    • Highlight some points. If your friends call it childish, just leave them alone. Highlight the subject points. It makes it easier to read during sudden exams.
    • Read challenging books. You probably have some time that you could spend to read, but you're just too lazy to do it. Just make sure it isn't so hard that you don't understand a single word that the author wrote. A research stated that children could learn and remember things better than the adults.
    • Learn some extra courses. Do you have some time to spend? Then why don't you take extra courses to the weakest subject you couldn't understand?

    Socialize with everyone. What's wrong with having friends?
    • Start the conversation. Saying 'Hi' and 'Hello' isn't going to hurt you. There must be a person that will just stay quiet, but that shouldn't stop you from being popular!
    • Say the magic word. Everybody like a polite person, someone who knows the basic manners as such as Thank you, Please, and Sorry.
    • Listen to their problems. Sometimes they don't need advice, they just need you to listen and understand their current state. Smile and just tell them it will be alright!
    • Try your best to help them. Are they having a hard time with the new subject? Then explain it to them if you understand the point that they don't understand, and don't make fun of them.

    • Give compliments. Of course you like someone who compliments you, but don't overdo the compliments.
    • Don't criticize them with mean words. It's always nice to give someone criticize, because it will help them be better, but using harsh and hurtful words is absolutely wrong.
    • Be forgiving in a way. When someone asks you to forgive them or they say sorry, wait a few days to answer. This will make the person more and more eager to hear what you are going to say.

    Be up to date. But being up to date doesn't mean you need the latest iPad or the newest game, just know the latest news in your school or group of friends.
    • Watch the News. Boring? Sure it is! But watching the news with your father may help you know the latest things going on, and that can be conversation ideas right there. (Just make sure it isn't boring!)
    • Music. Don't just listen to Justin Bieber and Rihanna, there are many artists that you could listen to. Sure, Rihanna and Justin Bieber are very talented people, but don't limit your playlist to that! Try finding the new artists in the music industry. Who knows, you could become their biggest fan.
    • Who likes a bragger? People who always brag their wealth and possessions is a turn off. If you hate braggers, don't mirror what they do!.
    • Be humble. Being humble would make you less noticed. But rather than making a new enemy, being humble is a wise decision.
    • Take a compliment. When you just got an award and someone complimented you, don't shrug it off.

    Hygiene and hygiene. Do you smell like an anchovy? Read this one, please!
    • Take a bath. Even just soap will make you smell beautiful if you use it right. Simply just scrub the soap two times in bath and you will smell divine. If you still want something more, buy a loofah and a nice bath gel.
    • Wear deodorant. After you had your period, you'll smell more easily. Even though some friends will convince you that you don't smell bad, get deodorant.
    • Fragrances. No matter how much it costs or where you buy it, it still will make you smell nice! For an elementary schooler, just have a fruit and flower scented fragrance. They could be found easily in the supermarket. Just make sure you don't overspray! One spray on each wrist will be good.
    • Mouth. It's really gross when someone has asparagus pieces stuck to their teeth, so brush after you had your meals and floss after them. You also can use mouthwash.
    • Make up. If you're an elementary schooler, don't wear a ton of makeup. Your skin is as smooth as silk and it can't take the cosmetic chemicals. Rather than making your skin prone to more acne, you better stay away from your sister and mother's cosmetics.
    • Have a "kit". Bring some things to your school. Dry tissues, mini sized perfume, breath freshener, and lip balm and/or lip gloss.
