We know that we can achieve whatever we decide to achieve. The sky is never the limit… Many times we realise that we can’t do something, yet. It can be either because there is something we must still learn or because of the way in which we attempt to do it. We have to keep on trying in different ways.
After many hours and days of research, we believe that Metacogs is one of the methods in which the way the brain learns best. Complete your Metacog for every section of work in every subject. This is how you can secure storing information in the right way and improving your results.
What the brain does not understand, it will not remember. That is why you have the best teacher in class! ASK until you understand. Once you understand the work your teacher only has the responsibility to assess you. You are now responsible to study and master the learning content.
This will be the most satisfying journey but your teacher or parents can’t walk it for you. YOU are responsible to get up and do it! We can’t wait to celebrate your success with you. We know you are going to do your very best.
Knowing what you want to achieve and practicing some good organisation habits can go a long way towards helping you achieve the goals you have set.

Tips on organisation
REFLECT on your results. Be honest with yourself:
Why set goals?
It is easier to reach a destination if you know where you are going. We all have the freedom to make the choice necessary to give our lives the direction we want them to have. But once we have made a choice, we must also decide on the means to achieve it. Goal setting is way of reaching that destination without going round in circles.
How do I set goals?
What kind of goals?
How to plan
Do not set many goals. Identify the one thing that you need to focus on to improve results. For example: If I improve my reading skills it will improve my overall results OR
I have to improve my understanding of mathematical concepts OR
I need to be more disciplined with my day to day responsibility to study.
Rabbits should be allowed to jump and run. Fishes should be allowed to swim. Your brain should be allowed to learn in the way it does it best….
Four steps of the Metacognitive-Mapping Approach (MMA)
Step 1: Read effectively
Step 2: Understand and make the Metacog
Step 3: Recheck the Metacog
If you followed the process till here you should get 60% to 70% in the exam. To improve it even more move to the final step of the MMA.
OUTPUT PHASE Step 4: Reteach the Metacog
Do this again three days before the test, exam or presentation. Go through the first 3 steps daily or weekly.
Reteach yourself – Metacog on wall – teach loud.
