Two things.......pay attention to what is boring.....and try to steer clear of it as a major, career, and profession and pay attention to what is fun and not boring, and pursue that as a major, career, and profession. Secondly, talk to your teacher and see if you can prove your knowledge in a different way than maybe a test. For example, my daughter homeschools and we do not do any testing, instead she just tells me what she knows or she makes something to show me and the best part is she turns around and sells it!!!! YEP.....she is 11 making money while she sleeps. She makes PowerPoints, Worksheets, and Tests on things for other kids, including an answer sheet, and teachers buy it. The fact she has an answer sheet shows me she knows the subject right? See if your teacher will do an experiment with you and just let you give them a presentation of sorts or make them a resource for the other students to prove you know the subject instead of having to study for the test. AND THEN GO SELL IT ON TEACHER PAY TEACHER!!! Finally, I meant what I said in the first part.....as you go to college if you are BORED........chances are whatever you are studying, if boring, is going to be boring as a career. When you find something you love and could do for free, would read and study for free, and that is exciting......you have found your passion so pay attention to your natural inclination. Yes it won't always be fun and games and easy......but there are a gazillion different career paths, so chances are you will find something that won't bore you!
You can turn boring to real fun in learning in things.
Two things that I can suggest from my experience:
- Collaborate with friends by sharing the topics and teaching each other, help you save time too.
- Reading text is always boring and therefore be creative to put the content in the pictorial form, so you remember it for a very long time and easy to revise yourself.
