Hello friends😍. How are you today? I guess you are happy and fine but I'm not. The reason is with my second semester result that was just released. I am very sad. I want to tell my story so that my friends in higher institutions can learn from my experience. It's a very sad experience.
Every focused student would set a standard of results he or she wants to graduate with at the end of the program. So did I. I already envisioned the kind of grade that I wanted to graduate with and I've been working towards it through God's help. During my second semester last year, there was this lecturer who was giving us tough time in the two courses he was lecturing us. Let me name him Mr Felix for clarity's sake.
First, we don't usually understand what he says in class and when we ask him to please repeat, you will not hear us. He would just come to class read the lecture notes and explain a bit. So, we accepted fate .
Later on, he gave us a list of about ten novels to buy. When we got to the bookshop to price the novles, the total amount for everything was nineteen thousand naira as my mates said. We begged this lecturer to help us to select five out of them but he refused. He said we should search the Internet. I got a few of them but not all. I told the lecturer and I thought he had understood not until we got to the examination and sew the question. Mr Felix set questions in all the novels and made all questions to be compulsory. It was real drama in the examination hall that day. I could not answer all but I did my best and left the rest for God to handle.
I also noticed that one of the titles of the novels that he wrote for us in class was not correct and that was the reason why we could not get it online. After the exam, I started praying seriously about the two courses in the hand of this lecturer. I prayed almost every day about it and my other courses. When the result was released, to my surprise, I got the exact grade I wanted in the two courses. I was very happy.
But I noticed another course that came out with a bad grade for me. I know instantly that it wasn't my total work that was recorded for me because this course was so simple that we all expected to have A. This lecturer was very friendly. He gave us A.O.C. and it came out exactly. We never expected the kind of results that some of us had. One of us even had carry-over.
We met with the Dean of school who happened to be the head of the exam body to explain the situation of things to him. This lecturer did not conduct any test. He didn't tell us to buy any handout neither did he take attendance. The end result of our complaints was that the Dean blamed us for not telling the lecturer to give us assignments or tests or to sell handout.
I was disheartened to hear this today. I never knew that we were the ones who ought to tell our lecturer to sell handout. Honestly, were all happy in my department that semester that the lecturer did not sell handout because we had spent a lot of money on typing and other materials. We never knew that we will suffer for it. But there was one of my lecturers in first semester who didn't even disturb us with buying handout, assignments or tests. We performed excellently well when the result was released.
Make sure your lecturer gives you assignment and test.
Make sure he or she produces handout for you.
