Nobody is perfect, the fact that you had a carry over does not mean you aren't brilliant, just keep being focused.

When I was in school there was no grade I didn't have from A-F, but that didn't stop me from graduating with a smooth result.

Like i use to tell people, it is better you have C/O than a D or E(so long your C/O is not always constant) because it's another opportunity for you to do better.

Just try and be active in the course i.e ask questions when you should, and make constructive contribution in that class, the lecturer will be interested in you, trust me! I wish you the very best.

Having a C/O is not the end of the world bro. What matters is that you pick up yourself and do better. Another advice, a high rate of carryovers are seen in courses people least expect to fail, so even if the course is so easy put in your best.

Nawa for you ooo.......
E na 0 points.....
But with C/O you can get B or C which is 4 or 3.......
Think again,which will help your CGPA....
Re: Help I Just Had My First Carryover by Nobody: 7:41pm On Feb 21, 2017
That's the feeling.

Having carry over doesn't mean you're a failure.

It means, you've another chance to do better.

Peace Up, Read me, Jack more. Goodluck.

I had this general misconception of the whole thing until I was chatting with a senior lecturer and he explained it to me in black and white. Let's say you did 10 courses and got f in one of them and in the end your CGPA for 100 level is 3.56.
You carry over the course to 200 level and probably got a B in it. When the time for your CGPA calculation reaches mind you I don't mean GPA, your whole credit unit for all the courses are added together. the credit load of that 100 level course you had an F in will still be added with a value of 0, plus your 200 level courses where you later got a B in it. you will get to see that the course is added twice with one having a value of 0 and the other having the value of whatever grade you got in rewriting the course, divided by the total credit load. the result is a reduction in cgpa than if the course was left with a zero.

Having an F is not the end of your studies, your interest now should be on how many A your can get to cover up the losses from the F.
