This is the best time of the year to start off any new resolution regarding your studies.Some advice as you begin to prepare for your English SPM
1 Know your novel well. Be attentive as your teacher reads or discusses the novel, chapter by chapter. Keep notes as you move along. Believe me, this is crucial when answering the essay question. Many students do not know their text well and end up writing factual errors.
2 Keep a journal. Write your observations about your world. Jot down any important events and happenings. Write your thoughts, opinions and questions.
3 Buy a newspaper and read daily. I recommend the 'Letters' page.
If you fail to keep your resolutions, take comfort from the fact that you can always begin again this Chinese New Year....
