Back till before and during 7th grade, I was doing fine at school.
I memorized for tests and quizzes, and most of the times I got straight high As.
Memorizing was easy, and sometimes fun to me back then, and I used to memorize things perfectly by reading it twice, and asking another person to ask/quiz me once.
Now in 9th grade... it got fuzzy and odd.
Even if I read things over thirty times or more, when I go try to memorize the second one, I forget the first one.
Even so if I managed to memorize the first one, I forget the first one right after the quiz.
I know writing and hands-on memorizing never worked out for me (and still is, because when I write down notes, my friend next to me have memorized by copying notes, but I don't even know what are on the notes, because I am too busy writing stuff down), so I don't even bother wasting time.
I have tried hard and really really hard, but continuous failures.
I also noticed how others memorized lines when we have quick quizzes, and how I was the ONLY one struggling still for memorizing.
Currently, the school is now about to end, and all my teachers are cramming on us.
Since I am in 9th grade, I really don't want my GPA to be below 4.0, but already a 3.8
If I get A's on eoct, I will probably end up with 4.0, but if I don't I would end up with 3.0 - 4.0 depending solely on final test grades.
Not just that, teachers are pouring 10 page memorization tests each day, and my bio teacher throws out 20 projects (writing essays 3 page, 5 minute speaking project, creating notes for all units etc. counting as one project)due in 4 days.
