How to graduate with a first class in a Nigerian university
Graduating with first class from any university all over the world requires some degrees of brilliance and outstanding efforts but in Nigerian Universities » , you need much more to finish with distinctions.
Generally, it is believed that an average student in a Nigerian higher educational institution can emerge as the best student in foreign universities.
To a large extent, this is very true as many Nigerian students have reportedly been celebrated for their outstanding academic performances in foreign universities.
Although it might seem very difficult to have a first class degree in many Nigerian universities, making it is not impossible.
According to some of the best graduating students in Nigerian Universities, here are three tips you’ll need to become a distinction student.
1. Never skip lectures
You cannot afford to be pursuing first-class goals and at the same time be missing lectures. You know some Nigerian lecturers like it word for word, giving it back the same way they gave you.
Missing such lecturers’ class is like running away from your own goals.
Missing classes can truncate your academic desires in more than one ways. Apart from affecting your continuous assessments, it also reduces your lecturer’s estimation of you if class attendance matters in your school.
2. Prepare for tests and exams early
While you attend classes regularly, you must also revise everything you learn on time. Never delay it. This will help you prepare for unexpected tests and prepare you for exams.
3. Set the first-class goal from your first day on campus
The decision to graduate with first class is not something you make in your second year in the university. Your preparation to have excellent grades in all papers start from your first day on campus.
Here’s why you should start greeting your students at the door
Recently, there was a viral video of a female Nigerian teacher greeting her students at the door. Different greeting for each student.
It was an interesting thing to see in a Nigerian school but some people accused the teacher of stealing the idea. They said someone had done it before in the United States of America.
Yes, in 2016, there was a viral video of Barry White Jr , a 5th-grade teacher in America, welcoming his students with different handshakes into the classroom.
The whole world commended White for his inspiring effort, and it didn’t take long to see viral videos of some other teachers in other parts of the world greeting their students the same way White did.
So, let’s not crucify our dear Nigerian teacher for borrowing the same idea for her students.
Anyway, a research published in the journal of positive behaviour intervention has shown that greeting students and welcoming them with a smile bring benefit to the students and the teacher.
The study says greeting students at the door sets a positive tone and can increase engagement and reduce disruptive behaviour.
It further states that spending a few moments welcoming students promotes a sense of belonging, giving them social and emotional support that helps them feel invested in their learning.
This sounds interesting, right? Yea, and that’s not all.
Welcoming students at the door according to the study can also increase students’ academic engagement in the classroom. And also help teachers and students to build a positive classroom culture together.
Greeting students at the door is an aspect of educational psychology which is largely non-existent in many Nigerian public schools.
A very bright student could become the dumbest if the teachers are not applying educational psychology in their teachings. Students’ academic brilliance thrives better in an environment where the tutor is not only a teacher but a friend to all students.
Barry White Jr understands that greeting his students with different handshakes for each student does not only create a friendly academic environment for the students but also acknowledges the fact that each time he greets them that way, the students are always happy.
He said, ”I am all about bringing joy to people’ lives and inspiring others to do so. Hopefully, everybody can start doing it in their classrooms, make it a big thing, worldwide thing. I feel every student needs a bit of joy in their lives, it doesn’t matter what it is”.
So, a Nigerian teacher has started this and we hope to see more teachers greeting their students at the door before class begins, mention the students’ names, make eye contact and always give a few words of encouragement
