Have you ever visited your university’s notice board just when results were released? Do you remember your heart just pounding, offering ten thousand silent prayers and promises. However, you end up getting disappointed. Or did you see it coming?One of our greatest problems is nonchalance. “If I die, I die”, “I can’t come and kill my self”. These are some of phrases that rents the air during exam season. My friend, I assure you nobody wants you die. I mean, you got what you asked for! You failed to plan, that leads to disorganization, increases your chance of being prone to lateness, then confusion is the worst of them all.
Why 80% Nigerian students suffer from this is that they always feel like they have ample time from the day of resumption. Therefore they keep postponing studying until the eleventh hour. It is then you’ll find so many people in a confused state. Frantically trying to cram everything into their heads in a short time. A semi-famous quote goes like “The greatest misconception about time is the illusion that we have more”. While a crash course program has been found to work for some people, other people just end up causing themselves avoidable stress.
My course mate in the university would do this, and end up forgetting every single thing he crammed the night before as soon as he is handed an answer booklet. Until, he realized he was on the wrong path and adjusted his study pattern.
My advice would be to study every single day! To reduce the workload of your study materials. Hence, when exams come, you would just need to revise what you have already studied. The brain indubitably gets tired also need refreshing. If you’re constantly studying under the pressure of catching up, you’ll end up wearing out your brain.
