“Ansa, do you have any tips for turning poor academic performance to academic excellence? I have tried hard to boost my cgpa to become reasonable success (2-1) but each passing semester – I find myself having more and more poor grades in my result that takes away my drive for studying. My desire to graduate with a good grade is becoming unrealistic. What should I do?” – Emmanuel
I certainly understand the pressure of trying hard to boost your cgpa, and the demands that comes with it. Whilst in school, I would study for lengthy hours and wonder if I’d ever get my desired grades.
That was until I realized that the hours I devoted to study were actually part of the answer – not the problem.
What I came up to see was that many of the students that have high scores in exams were not investing much time to study. If one successful student was implementing good study skills, many others are probably doing the same.
I began to approach studying for exams differently, so that I could achieve my desired grade and save time for other tasks.
Of course I could normally stay up late to study – and I might change my study skill to suit my schedule for that day. But I would devote less time to study in such a way that I could quickly understand and comprehend a study material.
In doing so, I boost my academic performance with less time and effort.
Poor academic performance is one of the greatest setback in landing your dream job.
