"Trying your best" means studying for a test in advance.
It means taking your time to complete a project or asking for help when
you don't understand something. "Trying your best" is not
waiting until the last minute to study. It's not depending on extra credit
to get a higher grade. "Trying your best" means you really
put forth effort inside and outside the classroom.
So if you find yourself with a low grade, ask yourself, "Did I really try my best?"
