2. Attend classes:
At least a student should attend 80percent classes for each course. Don’t always depend on your friends note as it might not be well detailed. Most lectures set questions on what they say in class and not the note they give. Always jot down things when in class in a note pad and go back to reading your note  at the end of each lectures.

3. Ask questions: 
As it’s being said ”A  problem   shared is half solved”. Asking questions goes a long way as this increase our knowledge and we are likely to remember the things we ask questions about. Ask your lectures , friends or senior to help you out with topics you don’t understand. Never keep things you don’t know to your self.

4. Keep good friends:   Remember “evil communication corrupt good manners”. You might have a good start but the moment you start keeping bad friends, you begin to derail and loose focus on your goals. Make friends with those who will push to night prep not not those who will push you to parties.

5. Make the Library your best visiting place:  
Theword LIBRARY is derived from the Latin word LIBER meaning BOOKS. According to UNESCO, the library is an organised collection of published books, reading and audio-visual materials and the services of the staffs who are able to “provide and interpret” such materials as required to meet the information, research and recreational needs of its users”. You can always get  every information you need from the library so make therefore make the library your popular place of visit . Read different books not just one. Don’t get your knowledge from just one source of book but read different varieties of books to get enough and full detailed information      and  knowledge of your research.

6 . Set your priorities right; Priority is from the word prior which means come before something else. Your priority is the concern , interest or desire that comes before all others. Only you know and can understand your self. Identity your area of weakness and work on those areas. Never put any course above others. Don’t study some and leave the  rest because those ones appear simple to you. You can’t know how simple they are until you get to the exam all so study all courses  equally.

7. Take time out for your self: As is said “All works and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Don’t always be a BOOKWORM. Take time out for leisure by visiting friends. Study your self to identify your talents and look for ways it can benefit you. It will also help your brain to relax and you relief your self of stress and this can also boost you MENTALLY.

Lastly, be optimistic:  Never say I  give up easily , always hope for the best. Think positively. Most people simply do not get what they want because they have no courage to believe that they can achieve it.
“In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity”(Albert Einstein).
Let the word “I can do it” be your best saying.

Your GPA is important, but it isn’t everything – MasterMind

It may seem unfair that during your time at university, many people seem to only care about one number, rather than other achievements that you may have during your academic career.
Many students feel that, while their grades may be less-than-perfect, they still are hard-working, ambitious, and growing both personally and academically.
Just because you have a low or below-average GPA, it does not mean you are not intelligent, or that you are not a hard-working student. A low GPA can mean you took harder classes to begin with.
It might also show that during some semesters, you were too distracted or overwhelmed to complete your assignments in the best way you could; or that you were figuring out how to be a university student, and now you’ve finally figured out how to study.
Whatever the case is, your GPA is not an absolute indication of your worth as a student or whether you are smart enough for college. — MasterMind
