Let me remind you once again, the one thing first class students have more than you is the First-Class mindset, trust me, it can’t be beaten. Once you have that mindset working towards it looks easy. I know this is not the case for average students, some average students had that mindset leaving home too but they end up retreating in the institution. That’s also a case, you can pick the vibe back. You just have to want to. Re-Focus, re-purpose and you will join that revered league. Consistency is an important aspect of learning and the outcome you achieve will at least, commensurate with the input you had, if done right.
So, let’s see other attitudes the first-class students have:
ATTITUDE 5: NEVER MISS CA’s
We discussed aiming higher in the above section, that might not be possible without CA (Continuous Assessment). Some schools or colleges have the principle of failing students who do not have C.A record. Sometimes, it’s akind of a personal thing for the lecturer, whatever case it may be, never miss any C.A or let me say make sure you have a C.A record, this is very important. It is a source of compassion when upgrading marks. It is easy to fail a student because of the absence of CA marks than it is with someone with a CA however weak. Cumulatively, C.As carry up to 30 marks. WHAT? 30 marks? Yes, that’s a lot of mark not to joke with and in some cases it can be up to 40 marks.
30 marks? Yes, that’s a lot of mark!
When you aim for “A” and you score let’s say 15 in your C.A, your work becomes easier in the exam but imagine not having C.A record at all and aiming for “A”, as possible as that might still be, it takes a lot more effort more than usual to achieve. Like scoring 70/70 in your exam. 70! not 69 not 69.5 but 70! Hmm, that’s something a first-class student would not risk. Don’t risk it too.
ATTITUDE 6: COURSE UNDER-ESTIMATION
This is what the first-class student don’t and never do. Don’t underestimate any course. Some student tends to ignore the importance of a course sometimes because of the simplicity of the course at the beginning of the semester or how simple it looks even in the middle of the semester, this is not good. Some courses look very easy in class until you are left with it inside the exam hall. Sometimes they are very easy as they seem but trust me, lecturers do know how to make easy courses seem complex in both CA and exams. You have to beat the underestimation spirit before it finishes you. How to beat it? Practise past questions, do all class exercises and assignments, even more, make sure they are as simple as they look in the class right in your brain. Don’t overlook them for any reasons.
Another reason why students underestimate some courses is because of the credit unit assigned to them. For example, students tend to pay more attention to 3 credit unit courses than the 2 credits and also more attention on 2 credits than the 1 credits. This may not be a bad thing if you know what you are doing. However, it is risky, while 3 credit unit courses are heavier on GP scale than 2 and 1 for sure and should be treated with more attention, it doesn’t make the rest courses less important. Infact, methinks they are as important to pass as the 3 credit unit courses too. Don’t underestimate courses because of their assigned credit units. 2 credit unit can take away a point from your CGPA if care is not taken.
ATTITUDE 7: DO A PERSONAL TIMETABLE — USE A CALENDAR
It is an easy trap to think “I can do XYZ tomorrow” or “I’ll finish X after this event” and suddenly realize two weeks have gone by. Avoid this trap by scheduling time into your day that is dedicated to your learning! This time maybe after lunch or before dinner. You might put aside 30 minutes in the evening. However, it fits into your life, be sure to schedule it there. This will ensure that it pops up like a regular reminder: time to revise a course, time to prepare for supervisor meeting, time to submit my project for assessment etc. Don’t do things randomly, otherwise, you see random results.
ATTITUDE 8: BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Have faith in your abilities, don’t allow anybody to discourage or scare you by telling you they will not give you first class. But truly first class is not given but earned. Always have a dream of being the best in whatever you come to do in life and give it your best shot at pursuing this dream. Believe you can do it if others can, you wouldn’t know what you are capable of until you try it.
ATTITUDE 9: PRAY MORE
As they say, work hard and pray even harder. You can’t do it alone. Pray to God in whatever language you can and by the teachings of whatever religion you endorse. No doubt, in many cases, prayer had proven to be an effective way of achieving goals BUT when accompanied intentionally with some work. So, put in the hard work and pray. You might think you got it all figured out. Remember it’s not by giving back the marking scheme as your answer. You might give back your answers in the best of forms (i.e as close to the marking scheme) but your result get missing. Those unpredictable cause of failure after hard work are best left with God. So pray, pray and pray.
How well do we know Albert Einstein? Certainly he is mostly known for his greatest achievements in Physics and for winning a Nobel Prize in Physics. But he did not win it for his famous Theory of Relativity, for which he is known worldwide, he won it thanks to his contribution to the Theoretical Physics, more specifically for his discoveries about the photoelectric effect. A part from that, did you know that he was playing violin and had a very hard time to remember names, dates and phone numbers? Well, probably you will realize that the greatest German Physicist and Philosopher is shrouded in the mystery and that what we actually know about him is not much. Let’s dig into his professional and private life more closely, to see what all we can find there!
A Genius But Also a Rebel
First of all, the twentieth century scientist is so popular worldwide for two particular reasons. First one is his discovery of his famous formula: energy is equal to mass multiplied for speed of light squared (E=mc2). The second reason relates to his education, as he is often cited as a proof that also lazy and poorly endowed students can still become genius. On the one hand, Albert is considered to be the father of relativity, who illustrated the nature of light and received Nobel Prize in 1921 for his work on the explanation of photoelectric effect from 1905, the pivotal year for his discoveries, because during only seven months he published six works. On the other hand, it seems that he wasn’t so good at school. He was not a bad student, but he was a rebel, who did not tolerate the strict school discipline. However, he finished his school education in Switzerland in 1896, by obtaining a Swiss Matura and afterwards moved on to study Physics. The legend that Einstein was a really bad pupil derives from the fact that the first German biographers found out a lot of marks 6 in his Matura certificate in numerous subjects. In Germany this mark is the worst one, while in Switzerland is the best one. But this little difference seemed to pass by unobserved, and so the legend of a bad student, who later became a genius, was born! Moreover, it was Einstein’s discovery that everything is relative, and so are seemingly school marks as well.
About His Life…
He was born in Ulm, on 14th March of 1879, in Germany, but during his life he obtained two more citizenships, a Suisse one and an American one. At the age of ten he started the Luitpold Gymnasium, where he deeply suffered the strict discipline of the school, but still he had good marks in Mathematics and Latin. At the age of 16, after failing the entrance examination for the Swiss Federal Polytechnic in Zurich (ETH Zurich nowadays), he was sent to Arau in Switzerland where he continued his education. But, to his luck, just a year later in 1896, after concluding his high school education, he passed the entrance test and joined the sixth department of the today’s ETH Zurich: the school for subject teachers in the mathematical and scientific fields. There, he met his future wife, Mileva Marić, the only woman admitted to attend the Swiss Federal Polytechnic, with whom he later had children. Little did they know, that their marriage wouldn’t have lasted and that Einstein would have been married again, but with his first cousin! The future recognized genius concluded his studies in 1900, passing the final exams with 4,9/6 and came forth of only five promoted students! Who knew then what would have happened next and that his discoveries were just waiting for him to be discovered.
Interesting Facts About the Legendary Scientist
Let’s dive into some more juicy facts about him. Did you know that the famous scientist has never had a car? Moreover, that he did not learn to drive one at all! And what about his greatest discoveries? If you think that they were the result of some physics experiments in a laboratory, you will be mistaken! Believe it or not, they were only performed in his head, just that, mental experiments that he imagined proved him right. In addition to that, the young Einstein was dyslexic, namely he had great difficulty to read fluently, and because of that had a lot of problems at school. Mostly, he was listless and indolent and talked slowly. It is believed that he only learned to speak at the age of three. Another of his eccentricities is that he never wore socks, moreover he was also offered the presidency of the State of Israel, but he kindly declined it.
Is That All?
Summarizing, the greatest scientist was a mysterious man and there are still a lot of mysteries and secrets to be unravelled about him. Who knows what might come up next? Maybe, everything we know about him is just a part of whom he really was. Yet, we will have to accept that some things are never to be truly known… He left us his great discoveries and a legend about him to be wondered and to live on!
How Do I Stop Forgetting What I Learned So Quickly?
What’s the point of reading all these books and blog posts if you’re just going to forget most of it in a few hours?
I’ve been sitting in a cafe for two hours, reading countless blog posts on Medium and have come to the realization that I can only recall two or three of the numerous ideas and lessons I’ve read about.
Memory is fickle. I try to read as many books as I possibly can, yet I can barely tell you the main idea/plot of the books I’ve finished. Many students in college also have the same problem as me.
They spend an entire semester going over various subjects and investing hours upon hours into learning the material, only to find themselves forgetting the material a few hours after finishing their final exams.
Hermann Ebbinghaus, a German psychologist, discovered the forgetting curve — a concept that hypothesizes the decline of memory retention in time.
The forgetting curve is the steepest during the first day, so if you don’t review what you’ve recently learned, you’re more likely to forget most of the material and your memory of it will continue to decline in the following days, ultimately leaving you with only a sliver of information.
Presumably, memory has always been like this. But Jared Horvath, a research fellow at the University of Melbourne, says that the way people now consume information and entertainment has changed what type of memory we value — and it’s not the kind that helps you hold onto the plot of a movie you saw six months ago.
In the internet age, recall memory — the ability to spontaneously call information up in your mind — has become less necessary. It’s still good for bar trivia, or remembering your to-do list, but largely, Horvath says, what’s called recognition memory is more important. “So long as you know where that information is at and how to access it, then you don’t really need to recall it,” he says.
We treat the Internet as a hard drive for our memories. We know that if we ever need a piece of information, we can open up our laptop and search for it immediately.
Just-in-time learning is becoming increasingly popular because it is more efficient to search for information that you need immediately rather than storing information that might be useful in the future. Deep knowledge is no longer valued — shallow, quick and practical pieces of information are more effective in getting the job done.
Because we know that we have an externalized memory, we put less effort in memorizing and fully understanding concepts and ideas that we learn.
Research has shown that the internet functions as a sort of externalized memory. “When people expect to have future access to information, they have lower rates of recall of the information itself,”as one study puts it. But even before the internet existed, entertainment products have served as externalized memories for themselves. You don’t need to remember a quote from a book if you can just look it up. Once videotapes came along, you could review a movie or TV show fairly easily. There’s not a sense that if you don’t burn a piece of culture into your brain, that it will be lost forever.
We are also more prone to binge-watching with the rise of easily consumable media. Have you ever stayed home on a Saturday night and binge watched an entire season of your favorite show? Would you be able to recall the story line for every episode? Would you be able to remember the conflict and resolution?
Binge-watching encourages you to mindlessly consume content, instead of consciously engaging with each piece of media. We are encouraged to eat as much as we can, even when our belt threatens to explode from overconsumption.
It’s true that people often shove more into their brains than they can possibly hold. Last year, Horvath and his colleagues at the University of Melbourne foundthat those who binge-watched TV shows forgot the content of them much more quickly than people who watched one episode a week. Right after finishing the show, the binge-watchers scored the highest on a quiz about it, but after 140 days, they scored lower than the weekly viewers. They also reported enjoying the show less than did people who watched it once a day, or weekly.
People are binging on the written word, too. In 2009, the average American encountered 100,000 words a day, even if they didn’t “read” all of them. It’s hard to imagine that’s decreased in the nine years since. In “Binge-Reading Disorder,” an article for The Morning News, Nikkitha Bakshani analyzes the meaning of this statistic. “Reading is a nuanced word,” she writes, “but the most common kind of reading is likely reading as consumption: where we read, especially on the internet, merely to acquire information. Information that stands no chance of becoming knowledge unless it ‘sticks.’”
Or, as Horvath puts it: “It’s the momentary giggle and then you want another giggle. It’s not about actually learning anything. It’s about getting a momentary experience to feel as though you’ve learned something.”
We aren’t actually reading to learn. We just feel like we’re learning something by reading and recognizing the words on the screen. The information is not yet knowledge, but we are fooled to believe that it has been transferred into our brains and will stay there forever.
Spacial Learning and Questions
So how do we actually retain the things we’ve learned? You need to give yourself time to digest the things you’ve learned.
The lesson from his binge-watching study is that if you want to remember the things you watch and read, space them out. I used to get irritated in school when an English-class syllabus would have us read only three chapters a week, but there was a good reason for that. Memories get reinforced the more you recall them, Horvath says. If you read a book all in one stretch — on an airplane, say — you’re just holding the story in your working memory that whole time. “You’re never actually reaccessing it,” he says.
Keep revisiting the pieces of information that you’d like to keep with you. I often find that when I learn something interesting and write about it, I’m able to recall the information more easily than if I were to try to recall something I learned once in a book or article somewhere.
Sana says that often when we read, there’s a false “feeling of fluency.” The information is flowing in, we’re understanding it, it seems like it is smoothly collating itself into a binder to be slotted onto the shelves of our brains. “But it actually doesn’t stick unless you put effort into it and concentrate and engage in certain strategies that will help you remember.”
People might do that when they study, or read something for work, but it seems unlikely that in their leisure time they’re going to take notes on Gilmore Girls to quiz themselves later. “You could be seeing and hearing, but you might not be noticing and listening,” Sana says. “Which is, I think, most of the time what we do.”
If you’re studying for a test or trying to learn a complex formula/concept, come back to the same information. Every time you revisit the subject you are trying to learn, the more you reinforce the idea into your long term memory.
Give yourself a few hours and try to recall it yourself without looking at the study material. If you feel stuck, read the formula/concept again and try to recall it again a few hours later.
The more you practice this, the more likely you will be able to retain and recall it in the future.
Scott H. Young is a blogger who has challenged himself to find the answer to the question: “what’s the best way to learn?”. He believes that learning is the key to living well, and has addressed the issue of people forgetting what they read by offering an effective solution.
When we read books, we are not actively engaged with the material. Our eyes are skimming over the words, and we put most of our time and energy in recognizing what is being said.
Unfortunately practicing recognition is virtually the only thing most people do when they read a book. When you’re reading a book, most of your time is spent recognizing what is being said. Only rarely do you have to specifically recall an idea, unprompted. If you’re reading a well-written book, you may never have to use recall as good writers know that recall is difficult and so they will often reiterate previously made points so that you don’t get confused.
Then, after you’ve read the book, you suddenly want this knowledge to be available in a recallable format. You want to be able to, given a conversation with a coworker, a question on an exam, or during a decision you have to make, be able to summon up the information that you previously had only practiced at being able to recognize it.
Given this pattern, it’s no wonder most people fail to recall much from books they’ve read.
It’s unreasonable to expect readers to come out knowing every single word and idea that the book entails. Our memories are faulty. But many of us get frustrated when we find ourselves forgetting many parts and ideas throughout the book as soon as we close the book.
Scott Young offers the solution: The Question Book Method
Whenever you’re reading something that you want to remember, take notes. Except, don’t take notes which summarize the main points you want to recall. Instead, take notes which ask questions.
If you wanted to do it with this email, you could write down the question, “Q: What are the two different memory processes?” and the answer would be “A: Recall and recognition.”
Then, when you’re reading a book, quickly go through and test yourself on the questions you’ve generated from earlier chapters. Doing this will strengthen your recallable memory so that the information will be much easier to access when you need it.
Instead of taking notes or rephrasing the author’s words into your own words, ask yourself questions that would help you practice recalling information.
At the end of each chapter, you can ask yourself a question that would summarize the main idea or important concepts that you want to remember.
He also adds some helpful tips to make this exercise as practical as possible.
He knows that some people will try to test themselves too hard and try to test themselves on every little piece of knowledge in the book. This will make reading a chore and ultimately discourage the reader to keep using this method.
First — don’t go overboard. Trying to recall every possible fact from a book will make the reading process so tedious that it might kill your love of reading. One question per chapter is probably more than enough for most books. For popular books, a dozen questions will probably be enough to capture the big points and main thesis.
Second — put page numbers which reference the answer. If you do forget a point, you’ll want to be able to check. Knowing that the answer to a big point is on page 36 will save your sanity later.
Third, make the technology simple. For paper books, I recommend an index card, since you can probably fit all of the questions on it back and front. Plus the index card also works as a bookmark, so you won’t have to go around looking for your notes later. If you use Kindle, make your questions as annotations in the book. Then you can see the annotations later to quiz yourself.
Practicing spacial learning and actively recalling recently learned information can help you stop forgetting the things you learned.
As an exercise, why don’t you start by asking yourself a few questions a couple hours after you finish this article, such as:
How do I remember more of what I learned?
How does binge-watching affect my ability to remember?
How has the Internet affected our way of learning and retaining information?
EXAMINE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM OF UNDERDEVELOPMENT IN NIGERIA
At independence on Oct 1, 1960, the various nationalists cum observers that either fought for or simple wished for the autonomy of Nigeria from her erstwhile masters had a lot of conjectures about the future of the country; how great it would be amidst vast natural and human resources and how it would favourably compete with nations of the world. They were so keen on assuming power since that was the only way to set Nigeria as a nation on her foot and that was the easiest way of unseating the heap-master that has hitherto denied the country the ability to fully realize its potentials and take its place in the continent. These nationalists saw bright days ahead where everything would be glorious, shining and perky!
Considering the abundant resources in the country and the amount of „heads‟ available, no way Nigeria after independence could not have survived and risen to be „African-Power‟- at least that was the dream. Whether it was a day-dream or not is a matter to be delved into soon. However, it is pertinent to state the underlying factors for such dream(s). After all,Nigeria was already a major cocoa exporter, and world‟s largest exporter of palm oil coupled with crude oil- the black gold, that was already discovered in Oloibiri [present day Bayelsa State] in 1956. So how to be great was not the question if not when the greatness will manifest for all to behold.
Though this is not to say that the colonial masters who were to hand over power were comfortable with it, they would have taken the alternative route if there was any. Prior independence, there has been attendant problems in the polity; starting with the forced amalgamation of 1914, ethnic contestations, isolation from control of resources, estrangement from politics, minority agitations, communal clashes, electoral fraud, leap for hegemony, forced labour, divide and rule, expropriation of surplus value and notably exploitation. All of these [and many more] which would soon haunt the „newly born‟ child at infancy were majorly the reasons why different nationalist groups, interest groups and finally political parties sprang up with the sole of aim of displacing „those‟ responsible for our backwardness and alienation.
Well, with independence when the Nigerian will be in charge of Nigeria, all of these issues and anomalies should be reviewed and compromise reached [at least that was the thinking].
Nigerians should be able to sit and discuss „Project-Nigeria‟, reach a consensus among various major ethnic groups on a way to run the country with the minority groups not left out or feeling inferior, find a way to lay to rest manifestations of ethnic chauvinism, tribalism, nepotism, regionalism, electoral wars, political rivalry, revenue allocation and resource distribution problems, succession, economic mismanagement, political instability, and lay the foundation for national cohesion ridden with harmony, cooperation and unity.
Instead of the above what was experienced after independence was a clear departure. The country, barely a decade after Nigeria‟s freedom from the whims and caprices of colonialism was bombarded with a myriad of complications which eventually culminated into coup-d‟état when the military took over political power; followed by a counter coup and eventually civil war! That was how the path to a shattered dream was set wherein dependence on the former colonial masters and her allies became a norm. The performance of the state actors have thus been characterized by selfish interests which plunged the country into a „rentier‟ state branded by externalization, import-substitution, socio-economic and political inequalities, and a disarticulated economy.
As Rodney (2013) puts it, African economies are integrated into the very structure of the developed capitalist economies; and they are integrated in a manner that is unfavourable to Africa and ensures that Africa is dependent on the big capitalist countries. Indeed, structural dependence is one of the characteristics of underdevelopment. Most progressive writers divide the capitalist/imperialist system into two parts. The first is the dominant or metropolitan section and the countries in the second group are often called satellites because they are in the orbit of the metropolitan economies. The same idea is conveyed by simply saying that the underdeveloped countries are dependencies of the metropolitan capitalist economies.
A tenable argument offered for the above by the Nigeria state actors is that the state has been underdeveloped by the colonial masters. They argue that underdevelopment as inflicted by colonialism is responsible for the spate of lack of development presently experienced; that the economy of the state has been tied to that of the European nations in a periphery-center relationship whereby the periphery has come to be an outpost of the center. Thus, development as dreamt by the founding fathers is more of a mirage. Various scholars have written to justify Africa and Nigeria‟s backwardness as a byproduct of underdevelopment. As defensible and logical as this may sound and is, there is still a missing link of what role has been played or not played by Africans and Nigerians [in particular] in banishing the vestiges of underdevelopment or in ensuring its furtherance as the case may be. In their explanations, such scholars and writers put forward adequate theories to capture the theme of underdevelopment and two of such theories [modernization and dependency] will be appraised before reviewing the actions and inactions of African, nay Nigerian leaders in dealing with underdevelopment.
Rodney (2013) admitted the above observation when he says “not only are there African accomplices inside the imperialist system, but every African has a responsibility to understand the system and work for its overthrow”.
Causes of underdevelopment in Nigeria, effects & solutions
Nigeria is a wonderful country with a huge population and endless natural resources. It has enough potential to become a great nation. However, the country is struggling with the problem of underdevelopment, which is not a good thing, because there are many unpleasant factors contributing to it. Here, you can read about the causes of underdevelopment in Nigeria, and the possible ways to resolve all the issues.
Even though Nigeria is a bright country with massive perspectives for growth, the reasons for underdevelopment underdevelopment in Nigeria are clearly evident. The problems of underdevelopment in Nigeria are responsible for our way of life, which is lower than average. How can the causes of underdevelopment be dealt with in Nigeria? Let’s discuss the solutions to the problems of underdevelopment in Nigeria.
Corruption The initial problem in the Nigerian everyday life is, of course, corruption. It is such a huge issue that has affected almost every area of life in the country and deprives us of growth. It feels like no matter which political leader we will choose, the result will be the same – they will not care much about improving the lives of Nigerians. There are a lot of politicians who steal the funds that are meant for various projects related to country development and put them on their personal bank accounts. If you look at the lavish lifestyle of many politicians, it becomes clear that apart from their official salary, they also take the funds from the national reservoir. There were efforts to fight corruption in Nigeria and a lot of initiatives supported by the government. There was a re-enactment of certain laws, and also many integrity systems were enforced. But none of those have brought significant success. To beat corruption, people should start with changing themselves and their outlook on society. The “leading by example” strategy can also be helpful – we need to have strong leaders who would show with their own example that corruption is wrong. Nowadays, many countries are fighting the corruption problem by electing the government that made a promise to implement a reform against this toxic practice, and we should follow their example as well. Combating tribalism and getting more united as a nation is also a way to success.
Unfavourable business conditions
There is one thing that helps the nation to grow and develop, and this thing is business. The successful and developed country needs to have a large number of industries, which are also of high quality. It is impossible to contribute to the development of the country without the existence of the industries. Unfortunately, in Nigeria, there are no suitable conditions for the long-running industries. This is mainly because every industry is in need of constant and steady supply of power and it is barely available in the country. The solution to this problem will be, of course, the stabilization of power and water supplies. If these issues are dealt with, it will be more possible to attract investors from the country and outside it.
Dependence on oil
Nigeria is a country which is almost fully dependent on the oil sector. Since there are major supplies of oil in Nigeria, which contribute to the general income of the country, there are other economic sectors that are left without proper development. For example, such sectors as tourism and agriculture are really abandoned compared to oil. This puts a lot of limitations on the revenue potential of Nigeria because the country is unable to take up a lot of projects related to its development. If the tourism sector was in better condition, it could possibly attract investors from outside the country and the foreign visitors, but this sphere is much neglected nowadays. This way, Nigeria is developing slower than it should, seeing how there is a lot of natural resources. The solution is simple – the agricultural sector, as well as the tourism sector, should be given more attention and care. The development of these sectors will mean that there will be enough revenue for carrying out the much-needed projects, directed at the improvement of Nigeria’s everyday life and solutions.
This problem is very serious because if not enough people are employed, their contribution to the country’s development will slow down. The youth are unable to find jobs because of the high requirements and lack of work. Not only the young people but also the older people who find it difficult to find a job are left unemployed when their knowledge and skills could have been extremely useful in the growth and development of Nigeria. Due to the unemployment rates, the GDP of Nigeria keeps reducing every year, which is one of the effects of underdevelopment in our country. The solution to this problem would be easier than it seems – more job opportunities have to be created for the youth. The problem of corruption should also be dealt with because it exists in large amounts in the job market and is closely connected to the unemployment rates.
5. Poor government policy implementation
There are a lot of policies in Nigeria that are technically supposed to improve the life of the local residents. They all look great on paper, but in practice, they have very little actual implementation. The result of it is the untimely ending of many projects that were designed for development because they have not moved on anywhere from the paperwork level. Government should take it under its own responsibility and watch over these policies, making sure that they were implemented and did not just stay on paper. It is the problem that the government should take immediate care of because there are so many potential improvements and so little implementation.
