    Ok so I have my exams coming up and when I go through the long pdf files I face this issue. I clearly spend a lot of time reading the files but I can't retain much info. Like after reading for a while I go like wtf was I reading as my mind wanders off. I am not a lazy student regardless the fact my dad always calls me lazy dumb and that a failure, I try to study all night, the more I hate my dad the more hard I work. I just am not able to retain most of the content. What should I do. P.S. I am sure I am not in a desperate situation, I can pass the exam well enough, I just feel that I should get an A considering the amount of effort I am putting, I am willing to study for hours and hours until my eyes feel heavy and a pass out on infront of my laptop if it means I get an A in all subjects and get a degree and move the **** out of my house away from my piece of **** father. He laughs at my struggle I kid you not!

  • My school dean keeps trying to make me go to school even though I am 17?

    So, this started back when I was 16 and I was missing literally almost every single day of school. The dean took notice and met with me, and told me I would get truancy if I continued. That obviously motivated me to keep going to school the rest of the year because I didn't want to drag my parents to court just... show more
    So, this started back when I was 16 and I was missing literally almost every single day of school. The dean took notice and met with me, and told me I would get truancy if I continued. That obviously motivated me to keep going to school the rest of the year because I didn't want to drag my parents to court just because I didn't go to freakin school. This year is my senior year and I am now 17, she made me sign this "attendance contract" this year that basically just said if I keep missing, my parents can take away my games or whatever, and we have to meet at the school again to discuss what can make me go to school. I have been missing a lot of school and recently she has been contacting my older sister (my parents are deaf so), threatning to come knock at the door if I keep missing school, but I recently realized that I am 17, and in Colorado the required attendance age is 6-16... Now I don't know if the contract she has that I signed can have legal action taken on it if I don't go to school, but other than that I don't understand why my dean is so crazy about me going.

  • I lost my book that I need for assignment at school. What do I do? I lost it at school.?

    Best answer: First tell your teacher, because who knows? Someone might have found it and handed it in to her. And ask at the school office too. Then search everywhere, everywhere you've been. Search your memory and retrace your movements. But whatever you do, you MUST tell your teacher, so that she understands why you... show more

    Then search everywhere, everywhere you've been. Search your memory and retrace your movements.

    But whatever you do, you MUST tell your teacher, so that she understands why you can't do the assignment. It would be very stupid not to mention it to her until the assignment is actually due.

  • Would the quality of education increase (or decrease) if there were no government schools??

    Best answer: One way to get an idea is to look at other industries where government doesn't play a role and individuals and individual companies compete for customers ( or students).

    It may not be a panacea, but the people deserve a chance to try.

  • How do I become a polymath?

    Best answer: 1. Understand your potential is greater, "more unlimited," than your outer waking consciousness may "believe"--in other words, "conditioning as limitation" is what may happen as one's inner child, one's goodness and joy, becomes supplanted by childish misqualifications. 2. ... show more

  • Are there any sciences don't require using a lot of mathematics?

    Best answer: Some subfields of biology and the social sciences focus less on math than something like chemistry. That said, any kind of science is going to require some math, if only for analyzing your data.
