For Freshers; 5 Ways You Can Avoid Carryovers
Carryovers make a lot of students feel bad about their performances and here’s why you should always avoid anything that’ll get you one.
Carryover is a common metaphor for failure in Nigerian higher institutions and you must try hard to avoid having one.
Students usually feel bad when they have a carryover in a course. Of course, this is expected because no student would like to revisit a course his colleagues have passed.
It may be argued that carryover is not a reflection of students’ intelligence as a student could fail a course through missing script incidents. Nevertheless, you must give your best to score high in both continuous assessments and
examinations to avoid carryovers.
So, if you don’t want to have a carryover that can cause you a set back in your academic pursuit, you’ll have to avoid these five.
1. Don’t skip lectures
This is one of the many reasons students score low grades in exams and continuous assessment. A student who
skips lectures will most likely miss an impromptu test and write out of context in exams.
So, make sure you attend all lectures. Remember some lecturers like you to give them answers to exam questions same
way they taught you in the class. If you miss such lecturer’s class, you are likely going to carry his course over.
2. Stop excessive partying
Partying and going to clubs every time could have a negative effect on your academic performance even if you are very brilliant.
You don’t need to hang out with friends or party all night to enjoy yourself as a student. And if you really do care about not having a carryover, you’ll have to cut down on partying.
3. Avoid needless confrontation with your lecturer
Always try your best to avoid
confrontation with your lecturers, try to find amicable ways of communicating your point of view without being rude or
condescending. You shouldn’t engage them in any argument that will make you look like you are trying to outshine them.
4. Start proper preparation
Poor preparation automatically translates to a poor performance in an examination.
As a student, who doesn’t want a
carryover in his academic record, you need to study hard to get good grades in your exams and continuous assessment.
Don’t forget that proper preparation they say prevent poor performance.
5. Avoid behaviors that upset your lecturer
Nigerian lecturers have rules and they hate to see student violate those rules.
Violating a lecturer’s set rules could get you registered in his black book.
For instance, many lecturers don’t like to see their students chewing, sleeping or side-talking when they are teaching.
