If you want to qualify for a TOPS Scholarship, which pays your tuition at any state college or university, you must take the right classes. There are four different categories for students with different interests.

Think class work and homework are a waste of your time? Well, listen up—studies show that the more math courses you take in high school, the more likely you are to graduate from college. And that’s just for starters. Learning how to study smarter can give you a real edge by the time you get to college. And it’s not hard if you make these habits a part of your school life:
Find a quiet, organized space – maybe a study table at the library. And turn off anything that could possibly distract you.
If you have a big test or paper coming up, set aside plenty of time so you aren’t cramming. Manage your time and study your most important assignments first.
If you are actively contributing and listening in class, your studying will be easier and more interesting.
Check Your Work
Studying can tire you out – but after you’ve completed an assignment, take a few minutes to look it over for any mistakes. You never want to turn in anything but your best effort.
Don’t Go it Alone
Find a classmate, mentor, coach, tutor or study buddy to help keep you going.
