What Happened When I Told My Class Mates That I'm On A 2:1 Not A 1:1 by KlausMichaelson: 8:23pm On Jun 07
This is our final semester here in school. Today, I was in a deep conversation with a group of my course mates, and we were talking about our performance and grades so far in school. Being their best student they were shocked to hear me tell them that I'm actually on a 2:1 and not a 1:1 and specifically within the range of 4.25 to 4.3 cgpa. Their Shock also shocked me lols grin. Like what were they thinking? And somehow they were disappointed too.

As for me I don't care about their thoughts or opinion about the subject matter, I'm not from a rich home perse, so most at times I spend my time on things that will put money in my pocket rather than books to survive here in school. I even barely read my books, but I'm a very fast learner when I grab a book.

They couldn't fathom why I couldn't make a first class even when they considered me a genius. Anyways, that doesn't matter, maybe some other time in the nearest future things like this won't matter any more. I simply wish myself the very best in life. Graduating top of my class is not an easy feat and I thank God for that. If any of those 1:1 students embark on 10% of
the thingss I do in campus to survy, they will find it difficult making a 2:1 not to talk of a 1:1. So I'm really proud of myself. Glory be to God. Amen!

Before you bring it here, you aren't also happy about it.

I know you'll want to defend yourself.


I understand.


Congrats! You are still successful.

Well fam, contact me write your assignments, thesis, and dissertation.

I see you impregnating a tomatoes seller before the end of next month, I see her parents forcing you to marry her, I see both of you living happily cos you won't lack tomatoes in your marriage.

This I have seen.

What kind of topics are these gracing FP?
@OP or anyone(undergraduate/student) reading now what is more expedient is how to convert whatever knowledge you are getting or have learnt to monetary or life standard increase practically.
Remember life is far more tasking after studies.
The earlier you brace up towards the aforementioned the better and brighter your future!
HRSweetness:


Please do not subtly downplay the importance of excellent grades!

Graduating with excellent grades just makes things easier for you. It grants you access to incredible opportunities. It provides the platform you need to explore limited opportunities.

So please by all means, go for excellent grades.
Noted....my point isn't in anyway a downgrade of good grades but in furtherance towards achieving with it.
I'm sure you are preview to knowing some persons with good grades but achieving so little in life and status.

You are on are 2.1 but others believed you are on a 1.1 and you are not from a rich home.


Please why is there the need to seek validation from strangers? Did anyone asked you all these ?

The truth is a First class grade is the best thing that can happen to any individual like you—as you just pointed out, from a home with a poor background. Forget the incessant jamboree and ruckus that would come on that last day when students in your faculty finish their final
exams. In the midst of all of them that’ll be gathered, only the First class graduates are SURE OF A JOB first of all, before talking of it’s a good paying one or not.

I encourage you, your GPA seems capable of increasing. With a 4.25 CGPA, it’s plausible that you graduate with a First class at the end. With hard works and determination, I believe your lecturers would crown your efforts.

I did not make a First class—or even a Second Class Upper. But unlike most of my pairs, I work so hard in improving myself that our intellectual pose is glaringly distinct. Plus the fact that I come from a family that acquired vast possessions, I’m almost not dependent on Salaried Jobs. I pray you achieve your heart desires. And every other person like you out there too, that’ll take a cue from this advise I just ushered in. Life as a student is seemingly difficult, that I can firsthand testify to.

After NYSC , you and your course mates will come to realize it counts for little.
Too many factors determines one's success in life and CGPA has an infinitesimal effect on the subject matter. out here, third-class graduate dey make mad ass money while first class degree holders are struggling and vice versa.

Can make one regret some choices and orientation.




I remembered back then when my 500L second semester result was released.........



My project supervisor told me you're a foolish boy, and not a serious student: Your nonchalant attitude made a 2:1 graduate, you're a first class material.


The good thing is quality cannot hide itself......its more like smoke

Maintain your over 4.0 cgpa, apply for all scholarships you can think of. Your distinction outside this shit hole is guaranteed.

I see you buying a laptop and robbing gullible whites of their money in 3 months while constantly jamming to the hit and viral song “ las las school na scam”
