First Year Semester GPA Of 0.2, I Need A First Class. Am on Verge Of Giving Up. by Amakababe(f): 10:16am On Jun 21, 2018
My name is Amaka afuzor, and i am a student of Federal university of technology minna. Mechanical engineering. 100 level


Before you accuse me of being dull, I had a 204 in JAMB.
I always wanted a first class, but
I decided to check my result yesterday only to see F parallel and some good grades out of 10 courses.
Pls am 22 and I need to pass so I can get a good job after graduation.
I know I didn't give my books much attention this semester.

I am confused because I will be asked to withdraw if I get a cgpa less than 2.0 on a scale of 5 after second semester and don't meet the 10-8-8 requirement which I am very far from.


CAN I GRADUATE WITH A FIRST CLASS STILL?
Tell me the honest truth, I can handle it.

Pls who knows how many percentage of final cgpa the first year performance takes In futminna

I laugh in spanish. On a good day, 204 in utme is low for mechanical engineering except your legs are long which is obvious.
My advice, you can't cope in MEE department; change your department while you still can.

I can feel your pain, In as much as the failure is 80% your fault, I'd still advice you should that you are not doomed, You can cover up some grades if you sit up for second semester. Do you stay alone?

My guess was right! If only you'd be honest to tell us your friends grades. I'm pretty sure they are of the same range. You go to Party? Yes, you go clubbing? Sometimes, you chat until late night? Yap.. Ogirl wise up, life na per head.

Nothing is impossible, but all indicators point to you not being a first class material. I hate to say that.

Most first class grads have track record from secondary school. 204/400 in UME is not a first class material's score. Even worse, first class grads don't have "F parallel".

A more realistic graduation target for you is 2.1 (i.e CGPA of above 3.5/5.0) which is still good enough for the labour market, but the immediate concern should be how to avoid being rusticated. Put out the fire first.

Try and target B minimum in all your courses in the next semester. Read. Read. Read. Get academic high flyer mentors. Meet your seniors that did the courses in the previous year, ask for tricks for passing each of the courses.

When you put out the fire (i.e stabilize), then you can continue your long term target of graduating with a good grade.

the results are not 'good' in general. I had a better GPA than many students in SAAT, water and aquaculture dept and fisheries dept to be precise.

very much helpful. Thank you mr Jarus. Ill put in my best this semester so that I won't leave the dept of mechanical engineering at the end.

It’s possible but it’s also clear you can’t...if you can get all A’s before graduation then it’s possible...Forget about first class just focus and come out with something good so you won’t be lost in the world o...don’t forget best graduating student is 10k

Amakababe, this one get as it be. For you to get that GP means any of the following:
1) Laziness or unseriousness.
2) personal problems eg. Brain being affected(smoking weed, doing hard drugs, drinking alcohol, online pornography and masturbation, abusing painkillers etc.), side hustle due financial hardness which may affect your schedule and give you little time for rest etc.

NB: Scoring 204 in jamb doesn't prove anything. It's not a great score for someone who wants to score first class in engineering and graduating with a first class doesn't mean that you will get a job. This is Nigeria.

If your problem is (1), you have to spend more time on your studies, work smart and spend all your energy and time on your studies. Don't set your mind on first class rather look to giving your best at any up coming test or exam.

If your problem is (2), you need to first settle those personal problems first as any problem that can heavily affect your school work deserve to be attended first. Feel free to pm me.

Huh.....
Why won't you when you slay with sweetness!
Can you read 6 hours per day now stop for the next 4.5 years?
Can you deactivate your facebook.... Instagram.... And other social media account while concentrating on your studies for the next 4.5 years?
Can you stop slaying with sweetness of whatever you have for the next 4.5 years?
Can you be consistent and diligent in attending classes, doing all assignments, termpapers and tests for the next 4.5 years?

If you can.... Then you can come out with a good grade!
I don't guarantee First Class sha... But it isn't impossible as other factors are involved.eg..tsunami results, bad-bellerism of lecturers etc..

But if you continue to slay with sweetness as per your dp.... You may be expelled due to poor result sef!

Be wise and stop slaying lest you be slayed!

Who says you can't grad with 1.0?
Same way a 1.0 from 100L grads with 2.1/2.2 or worse .....you can scale up. As a babe in Mech, having constantly, above 4.7, your lecturers may develop soft spot for you. Nothing is impossible.

Also confirm the grading system of your faculty. In my days, 100L was only 5 or 10% of CGPA or so, while final result weighed 50%. Grading is the most important thing now ma'am.

Parallel Fs mean you have to re take those courses as carry over courses which will add to your overall credit load.
If anybody is giving you hope for a first class, the person isn't being honest. It will be in your best interest to repeat the semester and start afresh since you're in first year. You're starring down a rabbit hole if you're hoping for a miracle first class.

you keep telling all this small girls to sit down and read they won't listen you see them on every romance thread Facebook and whatsapp discussing about how handsome and caring their boyfriends are.
Now wey your cgpa don show you how far i believe you'll sit up olodo

lolz...this indomie generation set of undergraduate/student are something else.

spending so much time on nairaland and facebook giving advice on sex and relationship.lols,especially that kimbraa that just got addmison,..you all better go learn some handwork rather than wasting your parents money in school..

mhisbliss ,Preshy561 i'm also talking to you guys
lol true. shey one of them don hear am more of them to witness worse fate.
University no be for everybody oh.
These kind girls na to go learn hairdressing or sewing work rather than wasting hard earn resources on education on itiboribo like them.
