How can I improve my class grade, especially Ap bio?
Answered

Hi, I am a Junior and my grade has taken a toll due to some family and personal problems, normally when I get back from school, I first do my homework, then study for 2hrs. Then I go to bed by 10 pm, but now I don't get to do my hlw till around 11 pm which isn't okay because my progress report card is coming up and my Ap Bio grade is a C and my grade has never been that low except for Spanish which was a B. My councilor says I can turn my grade around before the semester but things at home aren't getting any better.

There's no one right answer for this, so I'll just give my take. Why exactly can you only start HW at 11pm? I would estimate school ends at 3-4, which means 7-8 hours of issues unless you have tons of extracurriculars. If you have lots of extracurriculars, I would try and tone them down a bit just till things go back to normal because it's important to at least have B's in all your classes, especially for someplace like Harvard. If these personal/family issues persist, get a therapist or expert to help you out, both for yourself and for your time on other things.

Hope that helps!
