Tips for grade 3?

Well, when there’s no ATC it’s essentially the same. Be respectful and aware of your surroundings. As others have said, if there is ATC you must listen (for what it’s worth, most controllers are not as scary as people in this thread are making it sound - they’re pilots too and not out to get you).

Pro tip: avoid the hub. Especially if it’s a 1 runway airport. If you must fly to the hub, do it between roughly 0000Z and 0800Z, where it’s generally fairly empty. If you want ATC, I suggest visiting the second busiest airport where you’re likely to get ATC without having massive delays.

It is not that hard, dude. Follow ATC instructions (even when they are being stupid). And don’t listen to people who can’t spell.
