so what exactly is the issue?

I don't know... maybe it's the way I answer questions? the courses I'm A or B's I get C or D's... I only have 1 c/o and courses I have dropped to make room for my 100l c/o, was just not expecting a carry over course last semester that's why I'm so down.

my cgpa is kinda low(2.59) after 200l, and its getting me depressed. I don't really know what I'm doing wrong. I read a lot but i still get bad grades and CO's and it's really killing me mentally.
can you help me with any good advice?
have you ever been in my shoes? how did you cope with the depression?

I think you should make new friends with guys in your class having good grades. It worked for me. After my first semester first year result came out. I struggled to make 3.6, then, I noticed there were a group of guys that were on 5.0. All A's.

The turning point was when I went to meet them during preparation for the second semester exams. They were all brainstorming, the paper was few hours away. Menh I was intimidated with the questions they were throwing at each other and the responses too. I just knew I wasn't ready for the exam. With their help I was able to brush up in some areas. At the end, the paper went well. From then on I had to join the clique. We attended lectures together, did assignments together, went for night classes together. From 2nd year I didn't make any thing below a 4.0gpa. In fact, my final year Gpa was 4.6.

Be thankful to God you realized this early enough to have a turn around. Having carry over is not a big deal, the real deal is not buckling up, you aren't the first and won't be the last. 10's of people have given you good hints/advise on how to climb the cliff with less hassle, your duty now is to digest all the good ones then change your approach and keep far away from internet (whatsapp, blogs, matches, betting, twitter, NL etc) if possible get a Nokia 3310 cos the only time to make amends is now.

the best way is just to get close to those first class and 2:1 guys; read what they read and photocopy what they jot, in short, know what they know. finally, use past questions a whole lot.

U must b a joker then. U are lucky u didn't even meet lecturers like Mal Abu.. focus, determination and hard work is key. Apart from studying in group.., study with past questions and thank me later..

Re: Please How Do I Improve My Grades(cgpa)? by bigfish3k: 4:29pm On Feb 12

thanks... I'm an introvert but I'll still try and merge with them
That's d problem, am also an introvert and it doesn't help me in school, u don't have to understand everything the lecturer teaches, reading with your coursemate will make it easier, at the end u guys get to ask questions, always use pencil to underline ur text book and keep a book beside you to jot information that can't enter the brain at the moment. Every morning b4 going to school revise what u jotted in ur book
Re: Please How Do I Improve My Grades(cgpa)? by leonprince: 6:31pm On Feb 12
Everybody has different studying pattern, try to find your studying pattern. for example when I was in school I study my lecture notes very well and try to answer my tutorials like I was sitting for the exams, without going through my lecture notes. Where I find difficulty I add flesh to my reading with text books. I am not good with study groups so I find someone I know is good in those courses and discuss with them on a one to one basis my difficulty.

I'm kind of an introvert like you, I do well with specific people I find comfortable with and those are people that I find something good to learn from them. I never enjoyed study groups, I find them noisy and I feel I do more alone than in a group.

All what I am saying is find what works for you and do it. Make sure is a simple process you can do over and over again even if it can be boring and annoying at times. Make sure you give your best b4 asking someone to help.

All the best.

Let me tell you how you will perform well, just know that studying and reading are two different things.
Spend a huge amount of your time trying to understand, which is study.... then spend a much less time reading what you already understand....mark this post....cos you will remember it when you start hitting 4 pointers

Baba go and chill, I offered a course in computer in my second year of Physiology at UI and I had an A. Which I struggled to have anyways, why? Because it's too abstract and boring... Not necessarily difficult but boring.

Why you are pained, I simply do not understand.

Oga, I didn't ask you to relate your life story to me...so quit trying to sound intelligent abeg...

most times it's not always about reading but reading well and reading smart. don't be one directional, because you read in your room today and it worked doesn't mean it'll be same tomao. if you find you're not assimilating well, leave that place and get a better place. Never be ashamed to ask your course mate questions, never be ashamed to attend tutorials and above all don't give up. I know you frustrating it can be when your hard work seems not to be rewarding. #E-hugs#

You can't go into a war without proper preparation. You can't build a structure without engineering or architectural designs.

My point is "engage in a structural and composed reading"

1. Before reading, skim through the pages you want to cover: This will give you brain a rough idea of what you intend learning, also serve as an "appetizer" before the main meal

2. Chart out a quick scheme: This will help you structure your reading into different segment. This will aid proper assimilation

3. Acquire information/data, I just simplified the reading "process". That is reading/studying is acquiring knowledge as simple as that. Though studying takes more focus and attention.

4. Review your reading.

5. Don't be pressured into long reading. Chop your reading little by little, don't wait until the close to exam before reading all the earth.

6. Maintain spiritual decency, self-control, self-discipline and the likes. Porn, gambling, vices, criminal conducts, sexual immorality, overindulgence, fighting, stealing, depending on " expo" and the likes, will inhibit your productivity, not only your academic performance.

It was not easy as I had pressures from home and even friends.I went through serious depression and that only made studying worse at a time.I started seeing changes in my result from 300-500 level but i still ended up with a 2:2.Do you have any other thing you can do?Do not put too much hopes on your your studies getting you a job after later in life etc.But the gifts of a man makes way for him.We all went to school thinking it was the only path towards uplifting our finances but why do uneducated people defy that.Bro it was not easy just keep faith alive your more than those words that would be written on your certificate.find other areas of your life that can give you what your degree can And don't forget getting a job now is like taking the stairways of heaven to the nearest chemist so be thinking of what next to do after 300lv.if a job is your sole motive for studying hard and or wanting to get a financial lift do away with it.Nigeria is no longer that way.
did you get an extra year?
