MUST READ: Why Students Perform Bad In Thier Academics

I decided to
write on the major reasons students perform badly in their
Basically as a student, if you want to perform excellently, you
should be determined and this takes me to the first reason:
1. Poor motivation
If you are completely interested in education, first you need
motivation, and how can you get this, the importance of education
is enough motivation for you. A huge step to take is for you to
motivate yourself because you may not get it anywhere if you are
searching for. Then, after you have put up a conscious effort to
motivate yourself, if you still lack motivation, you need to
understand the cause and you can then develop a strategy to fight
*Causes of lack of motivation
Low self esteem
This is a very good example, once you have low self-esteem; you
find it difficult to take on challenges or undertake any major task
even when you are capable, you may not, just because you already
have a bad perspective that it is not possible. Most students lack
motivation because of the fear of failure, failure of the past and
(or) even fear of what other people might say to them. Another
factor is laziness which is common. If you need to improve in your
education, you need to awaken motivation and enthusiasm. You can
make it.
Lack of interest
Most people don’t find education interesting, and makes it difficult
to engage in, so if there is lack of motivation, it is difficult to
sustain the attention, which can be easily diverted and as a result
of this they end up with poor grades.
2. Time management
The question to always seek answer to is…What do you have to do?
You need to know how to manage your time as a student, and
never allow someone use your time for you. Your daily life as a
student should be properly accounted for. Speaking from experience,
most students tend to do the unimportant tasks, and then do the
important tasks at the last minute which can cost them the result.
Carefully select friends that you know can add value to your
(purpose on campus) academic success.
* The following are ways to overcome poor time management
Avoid procrastination
It is a disease, as a student, you should not procrastinate. You can
overcome this by doing what is worth doing at the right time, and
never allow distractions. Similarly, draw a plan for each day and
follow it through diligently.
· Establish your priorities
In drawing your daily work plan, remember that it is not
everything you need to do that is very important and equally
urgent. You need to prioritize; know the very important tasks and
separate them from the less important ones. As a student, learn
that although reading, sleeping and hanging out are important, the
time for reading should not be substituted for sleeping or hanging
out, so learn to prioritize.
· Create a to do list
As mentioned briefly above, as a student you, create a to do list,
the reason for doing this is because it will serve as a reminder to
you. Know what to do at anytime and no one would spend your
time for you.
· Use your time wisely
To be successful academically as a student, you need to manage your
time wisely, get something to read, or walk up to the library, or a
quiet place to study. If you feel a bit tired you should relax, get
back to what you have to do later so put your good time to good
use. Be a good time manager.
3. Sleeplessness
Sleep is very important because sleep is very important, and getting
the right amount of sleep is very essential for you as well.
As a student, having a good sleep time may be one of the most
important things you can do to help yourself. When you sleep at
the right time, and for the number of hours expected (approximately
8 hours), then you are working to help yourself academically
because you get active in any activity you engage in.
Poor sleeping habit would negatively impact you, when you are
meant to be sleeping, you shouldn’t spend such time watching movie,
or doing some irrelevant things, this turns out to have negative
effect on your academics.
Most times, students get to class and after few minutes of lecture
they start to doze, not that the lecture is boring, but they did not
get enough sleep and this also might affect them, because they
won’t gain anything in such class.
You can overcome sleeplessness by doing the following
Avoid naps: As a student, you should avoid naps just like after
coming back from class and you decide to take a nap you should
avoid doing that.
Regular exercise: You should learn to exercise your body regularly,
this would help you relief stress, and its one step to getting regular
and sound sleep.
Avoid late night meal: Health experts advise everyone not to eat late
at night. The reason for this is to aid proper digestion and you’d be
able to sleep well.
4. Class attendance and assignment
One more important thing to do in order to be successful as a
student is your class attendance, participation and assignments. It
is not just about the grades you get for attending the class but
attending the class and participating also would help you
Assignment is also another important thing that teachers give to
access the students to measure how much further they would go
over what has been thought.
Most times students miss classes for no good reason which is very
bad. For any class you miss you lose knowledge of what might have
been thought in class, it is absolutely important for you to attend
classes you should never miss a class for any reason
You miss a lot when you miss a class. Attending classes will do you
more good than just getting the grades. Paying attention saves you
less reading for later and gives you clarification and insight on
what you might come across.
Assignments are important part of CA and most students don’t
know this and it also helps you have personal knowledge on how
it’s been done and won’t be a problem for you later when you come
across such problems.
5. Teacher student interaction
One of the ways to be successful academically as a student is
having the teacher and student interaction. You should learn to
interact with your teachers. You do not have to necessarily wait till
when you have problems before you walk up to them.
Creating such relationship with your teachers would help you on a
long run. It will help you understand what looks difficult and your
teachers might even serve as a role model to you.
Interaction with your teachers would give you opportunity to engage
them in activities that you could do together. Many questions can
lead to discussions.
Teachers do not only help academically, they also give student the
following supports;
Emotional support: They help students by giving them emotional
supports. As a student you should not only interact with teachers on
academics only they could equally give you emotional supports.
Behavioral management: Interaction with your teacher could go a
long way by helping you correct your behaviors; they monitor to also
prevent and help direct your behavior
Students like it when teachers pay attention to them and encourage
them so it is very important to give such privilege and it should be
utilized by the student if it is very important for the student,
interacting with your teachers as a student would help you bring
out the best in you.
