For all who promoted, congratulations. Time to move forward. My suggestion comes two-fold:
1. Firm up foundations. Use December to learn and understand everything you studied for FEs. Don’t memorize. Know your stuff well. Understand how and why your formulae or theories work, and be flexible to see them incorporated in unique situations. Think. And once you think well, think out of the box.
2. Learn consistency. Consistency is not doing a lot in a short period of time, but doing a little over a long period of time. Ensure you understand EVERYTHING that is taught in each lecture. Complete your homework on the day it’s given so that procrastination have no hold in your life. Understand the answering techniques in each tutorial. Be consistent in your work, and see effortlessly excellent results. Apply all this on the next lecture this during lecture week, and start NOW.
DO NOT ONLY START IN 2017. KILL PROCRASTINATION BEFORE IT GROWS.
3. Learn consistently. In every moment of your life, ask questions. Relate what you learnt to a physical phenomena. Ask out-of-the-syllabus questions. Satisfy your curiosity for knowledge online. Learn continually. This principle lasts beyond grades and into life as well.
In life, learn to learn. Let good grades be but a fruit of that spirit.
