While her achievement is worth being proud of, Tapel said she shared it not to brag but to inspire.

Tapel wrote, “Hear me out, guys. I'm taking this opportunity to hopefully inspire every single person reading this, especially the incoming Grade 12 students.”

The incoming college freshman shared some tips and advice to those preparing to take admission tests.

First, Tapel talks about taking review classes. She said while it does not guarantee a passing score, review classes are helpful. She wrote, “It prepares you on what to expect in entrance exams and you can actually get a lot of helpful tips you can use on the actual exams. It also helps you realize what subject areas you need to work on so you can score higher on tests. And while you're at it, it is also a great way to meet new friends!”

Secondly, Tapel highlighted that there’s no other way to ace that test but to study and prepare. She wrote, “It's never to early to start preparing for entance tests. while you're still on vacation, you can start studying so you don't stress yourself out with the tremendous amount of workload when classes start.”

Thirdly, Tapel talked about discipline and setting a study routine for yourself. She said, “Set a strict studying schedule for even at least 30 minutes a day. This might not sound fun but if you make it a routine, it can actually help because hey, even the littlest of progress in studying is still progress. Just make sure you actually follow through it!”

Fourthly, Tapel noted how your friends can actually help you pass. She said studying with your friends is a “great way to share your knowledge and have your friends to share their knowledge with you. And doing things with your friends makes it even more fun, right?”

Keep your “eyes on the prize,” Tapel said. Keeping focused on your goal is actually the best motivation to ace that exam. She wrote, “I know some of you have dilemmas whether you'd choose passion or practicality, but don't let external factors knock you off the path of actually pursuing what you want.”

“Studying with a goal set in mind ignites a fire inside of you so don't let it die. You can do and achieve everything as long as you work hard for it,” the young lady added.

Lastly, the young achiever reiterated the importance of having a break. Take a rest, Tapel advised. She said, “Don't overwork or stress yourself out too much. While studying hard is very important, relaxing is equally important too.”

Tapel even added a special note saying that it’s best to apply to every university so you can have more options.

More importantly, she said, “Please don’t be lazy.”

The now-viral netizen said sharing her achievements was meant to honor God who has granted her everything she has. She said, “I honestly couldn't have done this without Him. Thank You, Lord!”
