Secrets to Making First Class in Any University

Almost every parent wants his/her child to make them proud in University! You on your side do not want to make them sad. Aside pleasing your parents, you somehow want to be one of the best (if not the best) student in your course but you must be wandering, “can I make this feet”?

You were not only the one that aspired to be the best student; you’re not the first students that want to graduate with a first class. And you know the Good News many students have made that dream a reality. Example of such students are, UNILAG ‘016 best graduating student with 5.0 CGPA, UNILAG ‘017 two best graduating students, Taiwo Bankole and Oyindamola Omotuyi with 5.0CGPA, UI ‘017 best graduating student Nkemelu who graduated with 7.0CGPA, to mention but few. To understand the magnitude of what I just said, 5.0CGPA and 7.0CGPA means these students, never got a grade below ‘A’ in their courses.
They had parallel A from first year to final year.

You probably think those students that graduated with, best graduating student, First Class students and students with 5.0 and 7.0CGPA, are born brilliant and intelligent. Though you might be right, not all born intelligent. Just like the “Self-made Billionaire” phrase, some of those students are also “Self-made Intelligent/Brilliant”. The candid truth is, we all are very intelligent and brilliant! All we need do is discover our strength, and promote it.

The best graduating students interviews reveal (10) similar characters they have in common. Those characters are what I tagged 10 secrets to making First class in University”. However, this article will go beyond telling how to just get first class but will guide you on how to make parallel A’s in all your courses. Thus making you a 5.0/7.0 CGPA. Now before I list these secrets, kindly note that it also takes the Grace, Love and favour of God to excel in everything you do in life! Baba God is the “Boss of all Bosses”; do not ever forget to commit your dreams into HIS HANDS! I can assure you that he NEVER FAILS.

Before we continue, take a deep breath, straight your legs because am about to help you smile after your graduating day.

Let’s start listing the secrets! They are:

  1. Change your Mindset:

This ranks my list because students usually get it all wrong when they just want to make first class. It is pertinent to mention that you ought not to read just for A or first class in examination. Let us face the truth, you’re in university to acquire knowledge, and be learned!

When you bear this in mind, you try to understand the concept of each course and not just cram your textbooks. Read as if you must defend your course in Real World. When you read to acquire knowledge, you will be forced to see parallel A’s in all your courses. It’s not magic, it’s reality!

  1. Prior Study

Prior means “before/earlier”, merging Prior with Study, it means study before…

Yes! You have to study before each lecture. It mustn’t be a day before the lecture. Just make sure you literally prepare for each lecture. This will increase understanding of the topic and create a medium to understand problematic questions you encountered while reading.

Do not joke with this! I did and guess what… “In the first semester of my first year in University of Nigeria, I consciously ignored this point. I was like, “I will understand the course in lecture hall, LET ME ENJOY MY SLEEP JOR!”. Like you expected, I had poor grades. The next semester, I changed my philosophy, I studied before any lecture, and the magic worked! I made excellent grades.

  1. Always Attend Lectures

As simple as this sounds, yet some students seems to underestimate the power of this point. In University of Nigeria, and some other schools,
attendance to
lectures has its own mark. Some schools will use the attendance list to admit students to the examination hall. This means if your name is not in the overall attendance list, you will not write the examination!

Now besides attending classes for the aforementioned reasons, in classes you will be opportune to ask problematic questions, answer problematic questions and most of all makes you appear responsible to your lecturer.

Since you have decided to always attend lectures, then I must advice you to stay in the first three sit in the class. This very helpful to facilitate the point!

I hope I am still communicating??? If YES, let me see your teeth…Thank you! Let’s continue…

  1. Self Assurance

Self assurance and self confidence works together. Believe you can break past record; believe you can also be among the best students. To be sincere with you, University courses are not just that easy! Some lecturers can be so threatening, some might even tell you guys in class thatYou Just Can’t Make ‘A’ in this course”. The scaring part is when few students still believe they can still make ‘A’ in that course, after a test or quiz, they see 3/30 as their score. If you happened to be in this category of students, you need to reassure yourself you can do it! You need to believe in yourself! You have to be confident that you can still make that 70%. Oyindamola Omotuyi a 5.0CGPA graduate of UNILAG is a good example?

Just don’t get discouraged when you fail test/quiz.

  1. Do Not Cheat Nature:

Don’t cheat nature??? How do I mean?? This probably should be your question. It’s all right; I will answer it right away! ….A little story… I had a friend in High School, during our early years, he always reads 10hours (7.00pm – 5.00am) per day. After reading, he takes just two hours sleep and most times do not eat till 12.30pm. When I approached him, he said he is doing FASTING/PRAYING. I tried to convince him to help himself, I used to be like…”My guy eat very well since you’re reading very well”, his response will be “Bros, don’t worry about me, My God can do all things, He is a God of impossibility…” You know what I did? I never talked to him about it again. Towards the end of the semester, he got ill and was admitted into Our general hospital. He barely wrote the exams he has been preparing for. Results came out and like I expected, he had poor result! It’s not that His philosophy about God is not true, but the point is HE WAS CHEATING NATURE… Some will say give to Ceaser what belongs to Ceaser and to God what belongs to Him.

If you’ve some church activities, cut down your reading hours, have some nice sleep. Sleep at least 5-6hours a day! Eat nice foods and exercise your body!

Least I forget to complete my story, the next session, I met that my friend and after sympathizing with him, I told him not to cheat nature. It worked perfectly for him.
