KEY NOTES TO EXAM SUCCESS by Dosunmu Ayodeji

Image
Life they say, is in stages. To move from a stage to another, it requires an effort to surmount certain obstacles associated to our dream stage. In the life of students, school examination periods are one of the most dreadful periods, not because of anything, but due to tensed evaluative process. Some facts are meant to stay, so does Exams, because it's inevitable; and what is done to the inevitables? Confrontation is the perfect word.

Statistics revealed that about 50% of students get distabilized during exam periods, as such, points to be discussed below are intended to assist worrying student to stabilizing their peace:

STUDYING TIPS

Self Recognition: The first key to success is the principle of "Know thy self". Know your style of reading, level of assimilation, rate of picturization and reading location.

THE APPALING STATE OF EDUCATION IN NIGERIA. by Abdulwaheed Oladeji

“The future of a great nation is in the hands of its youth”
- anonymous. 

I will like to add my own
“the future of a great nation resides in the hands of its youth but depends more on the type of training being given to her youths.”

    In Nigeria, the education sector of the nation is actually what we can refer to as the worst of all sectors in the country and this is as a result of the poor quality of education being administered to its youth. Starting from primary education to tertiary education, the federal government of Nigeria has failed in investing in the nation’s future.

    Using OBAFEMI AWOLOWO UNIVERSITY(OAU) as a case study, the university dwells in its lost glory and it pains me whenever I see my fellow students shout GREAT IFE and leaves me with the question where is the greatness they are shouting of? .
    Ranging from the dilapidated structures the institution as such has lecture theatres which I have decided to call 'prison' because a 150 capacity lecture thea…
