Why Students Fail To Graduate With Good Grades by RobinHez(m): 10:57am On Apr 16, 2015
There are
many factors
that can
contribute to a
student not
graduating
with good
grade. Many of
these factors may be beyond the control of the
student. However, from observation many students
fail to graduate with good grades for reasons which
can be traced directly to them. They knowingly or
unknowingly plotted their own failure.
Here are 5 common ways many students jeopardize
their chances of graduating with good grades;

Poor Start: It is said that the beginning of a thing
matters. This is true if you aim to graduate with good
grades. It has been observed that students who end
up graduating with good grades are the ones that
started putting the needed effort right from their first
year. Many think that they have plenty of time, so
they use their first year to have “fun” only to realize
how difficult it is to make up for what has been lost
already.

Lack of Interest: For one reason or the other many
students find themselves admitted to study a
particular course they have no interest to study.
Many of such students usually develop apathy for
academic activities. Some others take their
academics with levity hoping they will change into a
more preferable course one later (which may never
happen). Only to wish they have been more serious
later. Even if the course wasn’t what you opted for,
take time to find out what the course is all about and
its prospects. You never can tell, you may end up
loving it more than your preferred course.
There are some others who have no interest
whatsoever in academics. They are in school against
their own will. A student once told me, “I’m here just
because my parents want me to be here.” You can
hardly put a good amount of effort needed to
succeed in something you are not interested in.

Misplaced Priorities/Poor Time Management: One
major cause of failure is broken or diverted focus.
You are in school to study and learn. That means you
shouldn’t focus on something else at the expense of
the main reason you are in school. I am not saying
you shouldn’t take out time to socialize, have fun, etc.
but don’t indulge in these things at the expense of
your study. In higher institutions there are many
things that will likely get you distracted. Hence, the
need for you to get your priorities right, set relevant
goals and eliminate as much distraction as possible
in order to remain focused on your main objective.

Negative Influence: In campus, you are going to
meet the good, the bad and the ugly. Therefore who
you choose or allow to choose you as a friend will
likely influence you either positively or negatively.
Beware of “friends” who will discourage you from
attending lectures and studying.

Poor Study Habits: Since the main objective you are
in school is to study and learn, your success will
depend on your study habits/pattern. Studying hard
is not enough, you also need to study smart. An
effective study habit considers what to study, when to
study and how to study.
