Why students graduate with poor grades


Poor Start: It is said that the beginning of a thing
matters. This is true if you aim to graduate with
good grades. It has been observed that students
who end up graduating with good grades are the
ones that started putting the needed effort right
from their first year.
Many think that they have plenty of time, so they
use their first year to have “fun” only to realize how
difficult it is to make up for what has been lost
already.
Lack of Interest:For one reason or the other many
students find themselves admitted to study a
particular course they have no interest to study.
Many of such students usually develop apathy for
academic activities.
Some others take their academics with levity hoping
they will change into a more preferable course one
later (which may never happen). Only to wish they
have been more serious later. Even if the course
wasn’t what you opted for, take time to find out
what the course is all about and its prospects. You
never can tell, you may end up loving it more than
your preferred course.
There are some others who have no interest
whatsoever in academics. They are in school
against their own will. A student once told me,
“I’m here just because my parents want me to be
here.” You can hardly put a good amount of effort
needed to succeed in something you are not
interested in.
Misplaced Priorities/Poor Time Management: One
major cause of failure is broken or diverted focus.
You are in school to study and learn. That means
you shouldn’t focus on something else at the
expense of the main reason you are in school. I
am not saying you shouldn’t take out time to
socialize, have fun, etc. but don’t indulge in these
things at the expense of your study. In higher
institutions there are many things that will likely
get you distracted. Hence, the need for you to get
your priorities right, set relevant goals and
eliminate as much distraction as possible in order
to remain focused on your main objective.
Negative Influence: In campus, you are going to
meet the good, the bad and the ugly. Therefore
who you choose or allow to choose you as a
friend will likely influence you either positively or
negatively. Beware of “friends” who will
discourage you from attending lectures and
studying.
Poor Study Habits:Since the main objective you
are in school is to study and learn, your success
will depend on your study habits/pattern. Studying
hard is not enough, you also need to study smart.
An effective study habit considers what to study,
when to study and how to study.
