Asked by Livio

This year I moved to England and currently starting year 10 GCSE (boarding school) as an international student. Do you have any tips for me?

1. Be attentive in class. Make sure you get enough sleep and try to benefit as much as possible from your lessons. 2. Be organised. Write down absolutely every prep you get along with due dates. 3. Be disciplined. Give yourself enough time for your preps, and don’t wait until the last minute. Know roughly how long it will take you to do things, and be realistic! 4. Be a part of what your school has to offer. Do extracurricular activities that interest you, and try to limit the ones that don’t. 5. Cultivate passions and follow any pursuit that you feel a spark of interest in so long as it is a healthy and worthwhile activity. 6. Most of all: don’t be afraid to ask for help from other students or your teachers. Your housemaster/mistress or whoever is in charge of your personal welfare should also be able to help. Other things I’d say: consider your style of learning and how you best absorb information. What method do you find easiest? What is fastest? If you need more specific advice, I went to boarding school in the UK too as an international student. Feel free to get in touch!
