A very good morning to our beloved principal, Puan Nor Emiza Zakeri, senior

assistants, teachers and friends. On this glorious morning, I, Emylia the recipient of
this years Best Student Award am going to give a talk on How to Become a
Successful Student. In my speech, I am going to share with you some tips on how
you can be a successful student.


If you want to be successful, you must set goals. Research shows that people
who set goals accomplish more than those who do not. In deciding your goals, ask
yourself What do I want to be? and What do I do to get there? Besides, you
must be motivated. When you are motivated you will have a strong desire to do well
and to achieve your goals. In addition, you must pay attention in class. Listen
actively and focus on what the teacher is teaching. If you have disruptive
classmates, sit in front of the classroom, away from them. Always ask questions if
you do not understand. Seek clarifications from your teachers or your friends if you
are shy to approach the former.

My dear friends,

Another important tip to be a successful student is to be organised.You can

use a planner or notebook to write down all your assignments when they are given.
This way you will not forget your homework, dates of tests or projects. Remember, if
you are organised you will be well- prepared and you will have less
stress. Moreover, you must complete your homework on time. Homework helps
reinforce what you have learnt. It helps you understand and remember the
information. You must prepare well for exams. A successful student is one who
prepares for exams well in advance, and not at the eleventh hour. If you study
consistently, you will have ample time for revision.

My beloved friends.

To be a successful student you must have diverse interests.You should take

part in co-curricular activities in order to become a well-rounded person. These
activities help develop leadership skills and teamwork besides instilling values like
cooperation and tolerance. Discipline is an important aspect of our lives. No matter
where you go or what you do, you will be subjected to rules and regulations.
Hence, it is crucial that you obey the school rules.

Dear friends,

What is success if you lack the common courtesies in life? Remember,you

must respect everyone. You must respect your parents, your teachers, the school
staff and also your friends. You must respect other peoples feelings and
opinions.There are also several things you must avoid if you want to be a successful
student. You must avoid wasting time. These days many teenagers spend hours on
social networks such as Facebook or playing computer games. These are a waste of
time and will not benefit you in any way. Remember, Time and tide wait for no
man. Also, avoid skipping school. Some students feel that school is a waste of time
as they can learn better from their tuition teachers. This is not true. The teachers in
our school are experienced and well qualified. They are also experienced examiners
and they know how to impart knowledge effectively.

I have to stop here. I hope you have found my talk helpful. Thank you for
listening attentively.
