Extom:
I used to be against the notion of cramming, but after trying to read(and understand) a voluminous textbook in preparation for my exams, and it didn't work out well(to be precise, my friend who is not as clever as I am, crammed the textbook, and did better than myself), I have been living in "CramLand" grin

Re: Can Cramming Affect One's Performance After School? by Nobody: 6:05pm On Oct 04, 2014
As a student what u should pursue is Grade first and foremost. knowing and deep understanding is secondary. The truth is that, while during school u have just 3 months to read and write exam, in d real world things are far easier . Outside school u have more time to learn things that are important to what you are doing. You can always refer to books, internet etc as a graduate.

I am talking with xperience. I made first class by concentrating on grade. During NYSC I studied d relevant books to my career in details and became well grounded. And I did well in most job test, skill test etc in top biggest nigeria companies. currently I am getting excellent appraisal at work.

As long as u know what you are doing and not lazy after school, u can know whatever u want to know after school. But u only have school time to get d good grade. And good grade is very important if u you are to get jobs, scholarship, msc admissions in top schools like MIT and havard etc. Especially if u are from a humble background, pursue good grade with all zeal and power. After u graduate u can study those courses relevant to ur career and be grounded. More than 50 percent of what u learn in school u will never use in life.

PURSUE GOOD GRADE IN SCHOOL, YOU STUDY FOR KNOWLEDGE
AFTER SCHOOL.

I don't even know how to cram anymore. Used to cram my entire notebook in Secondary school but in university I was suddenly unable to cram even till now.

But when I cram I remember oo. I still remember some things I did in Secondary school and even how the pages where I wrote them look like. I also remember what term I was taught some topics.

For those that cram and don't remember, well...you just won't be able to defend your result. How will you feel if your doctor keeps checking his textbook when asking you for symptoms.

Firstly, For u to cram successfully, you must be brilliant...there are some lekturers that doesn't want u to give them answers different from what they gave in their notes..there are some fields where crammers might not go far though eg lekturing because they're only good in short noticed test..aside this, nothing do U...crammers rule..

Before I read other people's opinion, who told you that cramming is not part of study? So my ambition is not to become a lecturer or professor, so la cram la pour.

If you crammed to get a degree certificate in
Nigeria, Don't ever try getting a professional
Job in the western world I.e. Australia, America, GB, Europe et.al

The first impression of the white folks is you
know nothing, you gat to prove you understand the rudiment of your profession before they listen to anything from you

That's now obsolete. This is because some courses are pre-requisites to another in the next semester and prompt referrals here and there so if they have not been properly handled in the previous semester, they tend to become problematic.
Re: Can Cramming Affect One's Performance After School? by zebra(m): 6:20pm On Oct 04, 2014
It depends on the course. If u're doing maths or stats there are some proofs that need to be crammed. No matter how hard u try to understand them they are always difficult to grab probably because of limited time.

That's why Nigerian graduates don't have critical thinking abilities.Any learning is back to sender focused is devoid of critical thinking.Pure useless,maybe in medicine some cramming,but you will still need critical thinking even in medicine.

of course, because cramming enables the student to pass the exam only, everything leaves his/her memory After the exam. But reading to understand stays put even after months of reading it. some lecturers does not help issues cause they want "back to sender",Which make some students to cram.
Re: Can Cramming Affect One's Performance After School? by Superstar007(m): 6:36pm On Oct 04, 2014
after go cram maths. If you are cramming formulas, I see nothing wrong with that but if you cramming without understanding what you are cramming then thats so wrong because if you read to understand, there are times you don't remember the exact meaning of what you read but because you understood what you reading you can still produce the required answer in your own context.

CRAMMING can ever substitute UNDERSTANDING.....u will get exposed finally if all you do is CRAM....So much easier to understand something than cramming.....Like the saying goes....Give a man a FISH, he eats for a DAY, Teach a man to FISH, he EATS for a LIFETIME.....See....cramming is.... you were given a fish.....while understanding is....You were taught to fish....
