Emzybrown: Its wonderful stumbling upon this thread, well let me share my own experience.

I was admitted 2008, then i was down with a terminal illness but thank God i survived it, then in my 100level i wrote both 1st and 2nd semester without attending lectures, missed most tests meaning no CA for me, when all my results were out my CGPA was like 2.6. Then during second year i had my surgery and i was well and fit to study again, i began working hard, i am hardly a social type, i began reading with top students in my class, weekdays i usually come home late and i go to school to read even on weekends.

Am now in final year 500level and my CGPA up-till 400level is 3.34, am still hoping that my final year exam will boost my CGPA further into above 3.5 by Gods grace. What really helped was

1. I mixed alot with bookworms cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy my guys read alot.
2. I studied my lecturers as to what they expect from you in exams, like some lecturers prefer you to write detailed answer, some will want you to go straight to point, some will want you to write exactly what they gave you then others will prefer you to make some researches.
3. Past questions will help prepare your own exam before the main exam.
4. Read far ahead before semester exam atleast you must have covered you scope 3x
5. God factor, determination and keep motivating yourself till you achieve your aim.
Thank You brother. I pray you get your desired result.

Education / Re: Can I Still Get THERE? by gingerbread(m): 7:09am On Oct 30, 2013
keyke: yea i agree wit peter, try 2 find out 4rm dose who re topin in ur department (both seniors and ur mates) wat dey do dah u dont. It really helps, dere's a girl in my class dat's always avin As while i ave B, wen i asked her wat she does, she told she answers all questns b4 goin into d exam hall, wen i tried it i found everytin easy i dint ave 2 rack my brain in d exam hall, everytin wz juz comin. U knw; as an international relations student, our lecturers give us AOC (area of concentration) 4 exam so we alredi knw d questns dey'll set and even if dey dont giv us, we use our brain 2 detect d questn dat'll come out. So all m sayin is, pple ave secrets dey use in doin well in exams dan odas, u jez ave 2 find out. Anyways, u can still get there; d diff btw here and there is "T" and T=Time so wit time and hardwork u'll make it

Yap guy, i know u are a very young guy, ask ur close friend who's working hard in his studies, he'll tell u the same (i'm doing it for my parents). Don't tell me that it was ur parents that made u choose b.admin, coz that'll be bad. 50% of intelligent unsuccessful ppl in naija, are those that listens to their parents in terms of their future, yes, we know that parents loves u more than any being on earth, but if u can't make ur own decision for once, u'll always be that same little kid ur parents knew. I love writing since my primary school days but my parents made me to study engr instead of literature, and i turn out amongst the worst graduate of my set, and now i'm struggling to make a living as a writer, what am i trying to say - u'll always make ur parents proud, if not in education, it'll be in proffession.
You discovered yours quite early, it was in secondary school I discovered I had more interest in business studies in my junior year nd commerce in senior year. I want to become an Entrepreneur a Successful One by Gods Grace. My parents never had any say in my choice of profession because they saw it reflecting on my second sch grade..

Sports / C.ronaldo Responds To Blatter Jibe by gingerbread(m): 11:09pm On Oct 29, 2013
By Football Espana staff
Cristiano Ronaldo has hit back at Sepp Blatter
after the FIFA President was quoted as
admitting he ‘prefers’ Lionel Messi.
The game’s governing body chief told students
at the Oxford Union that he would rather
watch the Barcelona forward than his Real
Madrid counterpart.
And the Portugal international has posted a
comment on his Facebook page claiming that
‘much is explained now’.
“This video shows clearly the respect and
consideration that FIFA has for me, for my club
and my country,” the message stated.
“Much is explained now. I wish Mr. Blatter
health and a long life, with the certainty that
he will continue to witness, as he deserves,
the successes of his favourite teams and
players.”

tony ayo: Bro, i know u are a booky unlike me, i don't care about grades, as far as naija is concern, the only peeps who have the opportunity not to struggle after graduation are the first class(only the ones that merited it). U sound surprise when u noticed somebody u were better than scoring above u, that's naija signature for u, if u don't have the brains have the cash, it happens everywhere and it's currently happening in medical courses, that's why we have quacks everywhere. When i was in school, my coursemate who was thinking like u committed suicide after he missed a 6months I.T defense. My advise for u is, just be as focused as possible, maybe u'll get better when u'll get to b.admin courses not just a general courses u did in ur 1st year.
Rip to ur cousemate. You know I don't want to disappoint my parents and this is not something I could easiily tell my parent cos they will see it as an excuse or a mirage.

Education / Can I Still Get THERE? by gingerbread(m): 4:20pm On Oct 29, 2013
My journey started last year when I got admitted into the University of Ilorin. I can't forget how I screamed for joy that evening. I got my desired course 'business administration' and believe me am proud to be studying that course. The intention I had of what my grade would be was 'minimum 2.1 no matter the grade score, I just want to fall within 3.5 - 4.5. So I started the journey, 1st semester exams came and past, result were released in 2nd semester except for the cbt exams that were released 3 weeks after the exam. I'm really not good in accounting got lucky that I didn't fail the course( acc 101) heard a lot of peeps failed itn my gratitude to God for excluding me because I got 40 on the dot though I failed Acc 102. I'm still trying to decipher how I got #20 in test only to see #13 in my exam score sheet. My g.p.a for first semester was 2.9. Some of the result of the exams I wrote made me wonder things like;
Is my writing not so express able?
Is my handwriting not clear enough of which I know is good if not better?
How come someone who is not, let's say well intelligent and below average got a B and I got an E? Someone that if I could bring the exam questions we were giving to answer last semester and it was marked by a Scholar he/she won't be able to get a D.
I even remember I heard some rumours from a close friend of mine, of lecturers and some students, I don't have business with that cos that's not the reason I came to Unilorin to school.
Is the lecturers marking scheme that high or what?
I remember scoring #20 in a test, got like +5 in an assignment only to get a D, the exact score was even 46.
I sometimes wonder what goes on within the walls of my faculty.
Now my CGPA is 2.59 which is way too low to my expectations. I remember telling a friend why I chose Unilorin was because you get what you put in(test,assignment and exams), and that there is no fluke if you no what I mean or let's call it EQUITY.
A new semester has already begun and my QUESTION here is can I be able to get to a 2.1 before I graduate come 2016. Am seriously putting this session and the rest in God Hands and am staying Positive because this things are not going the way I expected them.

Sports / Platini Wants 40-country World Cup by gingerbread(m): 3:34pm On Oct 28, 2013
The Frenchman has responded to Fifa
president Sepp Blatter's recent comments,
agreeing that more African and Asian teams
should play in the competition
Uefa president Michel Platini has suggested
that the World Cup should be expanded to 40
teams to include more Asian and African
representatives, starting from 2018 in Russia.
Sepp Blatter has already stated that he wants
more non-European teams at the World Cup
and Platini agrees with the Fifa chief that it
would be fruitful to have more African and
Asian sides at the finals, although feels the
best solution would be to expand the
competition rather than to take away places
from Europe.
"I totally agree with Sepp Blatter that we need
more African and Asian teams. It would be
good for everybody," Platini told The Times.
"But instead of taking away some European
spots, we have to expand to 40 teams.
"For example, we can add two African, two
Asian, two American, one Oceania and one
from Europe."
Europe currently hold 13 of the 32 World Cup
spots, whereas Africa have to settle for five
places and Asia for four or five, depending on
whether they qualify via a play-off against a
South American team.
The World Cup was expanded from 24 to 32
teams in 1998 after a previous expansion from
16 to 24 in 1982.
