Why Nigerian students prefer going abroad to study

In a century where there is a rapid explosion of knowledge, with necessary emphasis on education and its value in the world systems. There is a mad rush to key into the relevance proffered by educational qualification and its experiences.
However, there is a problem of unparalleled non-challancy in the governments’ interest in building the educational sector. This is sickening, demoralizing and has called for an ardent pursuit for alternatives in countries where such values are not only recognized, but its reward and sector prioritized. A plethora of reasons has called for this educational migration and we may have to look at some of them in the following paragraphs.

On one end, the declining standard of education is reason enough for Nigerian students search for greener pastures abroad. When a student is subjected to study only theories of a practical demanding course for 4years, and probably is only granted access to see the interior of a related lab once. This is a hoax to what he is told true education really is. His curiosity sends him searching. The rise of social media connectedness has exposed the poor academic standards of our country. Students feel ashamed to tell their mates studying same course with them in a different county, but same level, what they are learning. Owing to the fact that our academic syllables are extremely back dated, that we sound like we are learning what they have remained for us 5years ago! This kind of sour experiences make educational minded young students to migrate for and upgraded learning experience.

To some other people, it is Career Opportunities that endear them to leave. When most Nigerian students finish studying abroad and return home, they return with a new perspective on culture, language skills, a great education, and a willingness to learn. Needless to say, all of these are very attractive to future employers. Also, many Nigerians may find that the country they studied in has a lot of opportunities so they seek employment there. For those who return to Nigeria, they get to find that a foreign education is very valuable when searching for a potential job in Nigeria. We have cheapened our hard earned certificates, and adored the slightest ones gotten from any other place but Nigeria.

At the other end of the spectrum, we also see search for Graduate School Admissions as the influencing factor. Like future employers, graduate school admissions boards look very highly on study abroad experiences. Students that study abroad display diversity and show that they aren’t afraid to seek out new challenges or put themselves in difficult situations. Most importantly, students who have studied abroad show just how committed they are to their education. Graduate schools regularly look for candidates who will bring a unique aspect to their university. This makes Nigerian students want to study abroad, especially those seeking graduate school admission in a country different from where they studied.

At some other points, Financial independence is the catch. The influx of Nigerian students into American, Australia, Canadian, German and some other universities outside Africa, is the possibility of flexibility in studying and working. The mere fact that these places have conducive standards of living, good labour laws, and available and well paying job for students that choose to work, makes them a better choice for Nigerian youth. Our youths prefer to borrow money to fund their oversea academic pursuit, because they are close 90% sure of making enough money in less than 2years to offset the loan, and live comfortably.

The nightmare that comes with remembering that there are about 1.5 million students looking for undergraduate placements alone – but there are only half a million places available is sickening. If that alone was the case, it would have been manageable. But the fact that there is a high level of likelihood to join the over 80% unemployed graduate, in a messed up economy is the tipping point. This is a very integral reason for the rush in oversea studies.

On the other hand, there are a lot of other specific reasons which the condition of our education system has coerced some youths into having this preference such as; To Gain a global mind-set, It’ll look good on your CV, the fact that ‘it is an intercultural environment which makes learning seem global because I have been able to relate with other students from different parts of the world through series of discussions and group work.’ Irrespective of whatever reason any youth may give, its justification lies in the inconsistencies and non-devotedness of our government to building our educational system.

This calls for the bigger question,
what is the way out? What if our government declares a state of emergency on the educational sector with a concrete plan of a revamp? What if our government restructure the syllables to reflect current trends and knowledge requirement, such that students don’t study decimated subjects or topics in their fields? What if the government upgrade and closely monitor the tertiary institutions, to ensure that students are reasonably admitted within the limits of the school’s capacity to manage effectively? What if the school system provides well laboratories and controlled regular access for student to experiment theoretical knowledge? What if our country passes a policy that places higher premium value on certificates gotten from our schools after this academic revamp? What if Graduate admissions and requirement are tailored to suit the dreams of our undergraduates as they complete their studies? What if our governments create a cost effective and quality standard cost of living environment for her citizens? What if our government work on our economy enough to offer economic opportunities for students to key into and make sound living while studying? What if our governments make available more scholarship opportunities without stressful and bureaucratic excesses in accessing them before qualifying from a nepotism based choice? What if Our government takes the conscious decision to act?

We will be better than this. We will have the influx into our country. And we will be highly prized intellectuals with worldwide relevance, operating to the benefit of our father land.
Finally, the onus lies much more in our government than our youths. The preference is only a reaction to governmental action and inactions towards the educational system of our country. It is said, you cannot cut off someone’s nose, and give him a rose to smell. Our government has expose us to the realities of education, cut us way from the experience, and expects us to enjoy the dilapidated system while we have a burning passion for the real experience.

I dare the government to fulfil its obligation, and see how much an educational haven Nigeria is destined to be.

Top Secrets First Class Students Will Never Tell You

For students especially fresh men who really what to graduate with first class honours, there are some secrets first class students will never tell you.
Image for first class students
1: They Attend lecture:
Some first Class students and graduates will testify that attending lectures is essential if you want to be a first class student. Most first class students make their notes during lectures and this helps to remind them how the lecturer taught while in class.

2: They are good Crammers:
Although it is advised that you should read and understand, but most brilliant students cram. This helps them to write down their answers using the lecturer's words. Hence, to attain first class grades, you must be a good crammer. Cramming and understanding yields an excellent result.

3: They Always Want to Know Everything:
One of the greatest quality first class students possess is being versatile. They always read to understand everything. Some make more research on their own to gain a clear knowledge of their courses. They like to read everything related to their topic or course and this gives them a broad understand, hence help them to write excellently well.

4: They are Goal setters:
First class students always have a goal they strive so hard to achieve. There is always a vision set by first class students, which must be achieved.

5: Always Love to Teach Others:
Teaching others helps you to understand well and never forget easily. This technique is always adopted by most first class students.

6: First class students in a relationship:
Most first class students don't have girlfriend or boyfriend. Studies is the primary reason of being in school, therefore studies should be allocated more time. Relationship attracts emotions and this always disorganize a students and results to low grade or decrease in academic performance.

7: They are gifted:
Its obvious and certain that all hands are not equal, however, it takes a gifted student to graduate as a first class student. Its not compulsory that every student must be a first class student. Do not hurt your self as you are excellent in some other field.

8: They never give up in Working & Praying:
First class graduates are committed and consistent in studies and praying to God. When this two are combined effectively, a student can be seen in first class students list.

My advice to all students, commitment and consistency in studies go a long way to get you a first class. Always focus on your studies and not school activities.

Most first class students do not read much like 24/7 but always find out their convenient time, when they can understand well. Hence Identify your convenient moment.

Also first class students are principled and discipline and this help them stick to their goal.

Why School Infrastructure is Important for a Child's Growth.

A child spends utmost time in school as a student and gradually the school becomes a second home for every student.
The school infrastructure plays a major role on how a child sees the world as he/she grows up. School buildings, classrooms, libraries, play grounds, halls, games equipment, proper sanitation facilities, are some infrastructural fundamentals that every school needs and must be provided to it's students.

There are times when irrespective of poor infrastructure students perform meedfully, which proves that everyone is not the same. Nevertheless a good environment can increase the academic performance and encourage high attendance.

Overcrowded environments are associated with decrease levels of students engagement in class and obviously adds to the growth of aggression in students.

Many researchers over the past has consistently found that school infrastructures impact teaching and learning intellectually and must be provided for students in every school.

Life After School: What's Next After Graduation

There are a lot of joy as the final year students celebrates after their second semester final paper. The question still remain "What is next after graduation". What do you plan after school. A lot of students find it hard to answer this question.
Image for Graduation

This is a period when everyone looks up to you. This is a period when you live an independent life without expecting the normal pocket money you get from your parents, uncles and aunts.

After spending four, five, or six years in school, what can you offer. The point is that most undergraduates do not have plan of what life after school will look like and may be carried away with studies and other school activities.

However, some undergraduates are filled with the mindset of graduating, going for NYSC, then Job. Have you ever thought of the number of students graduating from the same department with you in the same institution? Have you ever thought of the number of tertiary institutions in the country? Have you ever thought of the number of students in the same discipline with you and graduating with you from this institutions. From a general view, there are thousands of students with similar discipline graduating every year from the higher institutes across the country. What makes you think you will get the Job?

It is quite unfortunate that we find ourselves in a country like Nigeria, where Job, Security, and other amenities is a big challenge. A country where its economy is affecting the poor and the rich.

Therefore it takes a unique graduate with innovative, creative and industrious abilities to top the chart. From facts, most of the successful billionaires and millionaires in the word never attended the higher institution or where still undergraduates when they got to the pick. David Geffen, Micky Arison, Lex Wexnee, Steve Jobs, Mark Zucherberg, Him Saban, John Paul Dejoria, and David Green were all successful without graduating from college or University.

It takes determination, commitment and consistency to be successful. The 35th President of United States, John F. Kennedy once said that you should not ask what the country will do for you rather ask what you will do for the country.

NYSC is a whole one year and you can use it to plan for future.
Every Man has that unique potential installed by God and that is what makes you different from others. Use this one year and equip yourself with skills. This country needs one to be versatile and unleash this unique potentials to make a difference.

Generally, there are three factors that will push you to the pick in this our generation, they include the skills you have, the talents you possess and your discipline. This three factors gives you a bridge over others.

Finally, wake up, plan your future, stay committed and consistent in what you do.

Pray, Decide wisely, Keep striving and stand out of the crowd.

May God grace and help your effort.

Why JAMB's Grade Point System is Not a Criteria into Tertiary Institutions In Nigeria

The results of candidates who participated in the recently concluded UTME revealed that most Candidates did well in the examination. Jamb developed a grade point system which will serve as a Criteria into the tertiary institutions in Nigeria.
Image for Jamb Logo
This system involves the use of Jamb scores and O'level results integrated into points to determine candidates to be enrolled into the higher institutions.

However, many tertiary institutions in Nigeria adopt a different system instead of the one developed by Jamb. This can be seen in last year's admission where Lagos State University (LASU) uses 10 point for A1 in all O'level results and the same year, University of Ibadan (UI) uses 6 points for all O'level results. The above shows that this model developed by Jamb is not used by all the tertiary institutions across the country and as such different Criteria are used by different institutions.

Also, the use of Catchment Area List, Admission quota, educationally Less developed states (ELDS) are used by almost all the  tertiary institutions in the country. Now if the above Criteria are used to offer admissions to candidates into the tertiary institutions, then candidates who have low average are admitted while candidates with higher average are not admitted, hence the grade point system are not used.

In fact the offer of admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria requires influence or what is called "IM" then in addition with Jamb scores and O'level grades.

All this sounds discouraging, but you don't have to be discouraged. We all have to be optimistic that in years to come, admissions will be given on a merit ground as it is done in other countries. This post was published to help you take decisions like Change of institutions, Change of course and also get you prepared.

Students like every other person have feelings and reactions over certain things. Some students are shortsighted and immature, this affects their understanding on how teachers behave.
Image for Harsh Teacher

However you may think that your students don't hate you. Some students don't hate teacher and you may be one in a million that students love. There is a clear probability that some of your students hate you and you may not realise it. Below are some  reasons why students hate teachers.

1. Too Much Rules and Strictness:
Students are already face with a lot of rules most at home and will be ever happy whenever  they can exercise freedom. Hence, students have a lot of hatred on teachers with much rules as they are generally seen as wicked.

However, a teacher who is strict, should expect a lot of hatred from students, because students are like every other person and will like to exercise freedom.

2. Display of Partiality :
The display of public favouritism where a teacher shows more interest on some students especially intelligent students than the dull ones will cause a lot of hatred. Students like every other person want to be loved and cared for.

A teacher who favours some students and not all will be hated by many students even some he is interested in.

3. Assignments: 
Students generally dislikes assignments and sees it stressful. Teachers who gives tideous, complex and plenty assignments are seen by students as teachers who stress them a lot.

Students needs time to have fun or play and not allocating the entire time on assignments.

4: Sarcasm:
Students dislikes teachers who mocks them and hates them a lot. This is not good on students and can make them feel inferior.

It is not funny but looks childish and brings a lot of hatred on teachers.

5. Contacting Parents:
The awful thing students don't want to hear is " I will call your Mum", "I will call your Dad", " come along with your parents to school tomorrow".

Most teacher do this and end up not loved by students.

6. Lack of Preparation:
A teacher who  is not prepared for lecture ends up being confused and students hates this. Teachers should always prepare for class before teaching and by doing this will teach extensively to the best understanding of the students and also tackle questions asked by students.

Do you need my advise? Alright.
Students are like every normal person, they need love, care, companionship and freedom. Teachers should be friendly to all their students. Teachers should show care and love to all their students. Hear them out, talk to them softly, educate them on things outside the syllabus.

While teaching, make your class lively and bring up funny jokes, tell educating stories outside the syllabus. Always stay around your students as it creates a strong relationship bond. Do not place strict rules on your students. If all this are applied, there will be a great student teacher relationship and learning will be smooth, learning will look like mother daughter conversation. Where an interactive class can be achieved and teachers can easily figure out the weak point of students and work on it.

Image for Exam success
1. Start Early and Plan Ahead: This is the
major strategy. Students are advised to begin as soon as they start their study course by making learning a regular habit just as hubby. Hence students should adopt a study habit by studying from the first day.

Also planning a study approach and sticking to it should be adopted as this will serve as a guild that structures other strategies.

The aim is not just to pass the exam but to get to know as much as possible about a particular area. The earlier you start the better your chances of covering the whole syllabus and gaining a good mark.

2. Relating Study with Life:
Relating studies with life events and things around us helps to remember easily during revision.

This is a quintessential strategy adopted by most successful students. This helps to create a clear picture on what have been studied to the memory and helps for easy remembrance.

3. Study With Past Questions:
The use of past questions help to enlighten the student how a particular exam looks like over the years.

This is a great secret adopted by most successful students as it creates a clear overview of a particular examination. This goes a long way to spur the student's mind on how to strategize a study habit and by so doing a student can cover the entire syllabus even without using the study materials.

4. Revision For Exam Day- Preparatory Tips:
As the day to the exam approaches, students should focus on crucial information and points. A student can develop Likely Exam Questions (L.E.Q) which is tacked. Past questions should also be worked on.

However the recap of the syllabus tricky areas should be focused on. Also find out if negative marking is adopted for the exam.

5. On the Examination Day: 
When faced with exam papers, it is advisable to take a quick look of the questions. Ensure to read the instructions first.

NYSC Should not be Scrapped But Restructured

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is a scheme established by the then Head of State General Yakubu Gowon, after the Nigerian civil war 1967-1970, with the mission to unit the country.
Image for NYSC corp members
From the day this scheme was established till date, there are some factors that greatly points out the negative effect of NYSC to Nigerian youths.

1. Insecurity:
With the current insurgency of Boko Haram around the northeastern part of the country, the life's of corp members deployed to states in this region are faced with insecurity which could lead to death.

2.Waste of Time:
NYSC scheme is a compulsory one year program which is a lot of time as youths can engage in other activities that can greatly equip and set them for life. Most Nigerian graduates can start Master programs within or outside the country within this one year interval.

Also with the slow system of Nigerian education where results takes a lot of time to be reconciled by the institution's Senate members, time taken for clearance in the institute a big stress, and NYSC mobilization processes, a student can wait for almost a year before serving the father land. Analysing this, a Nigerian Student spends two years or more after graduating from school before working or begin a Master program which is a huge east of time.

3. NYSC has Over lived its Usefulness:
The usefulness of NYSC is to unit the nation by sending corp members to other part of the country can now be manipulated as most of the corp members work their way out to serve at their State of choice. This involves the bribing some scheme officials hence causing an increase in bribery and corruption in the country.

4. Waste of Resources:
The Federal Government spends a lot of fund that can be used to create an entrepreneurial scheme which will help to equip Nigerian Youths with different skills, by so doing, it will set the life of youth for financial freedom instead of seeking for white corla jobs.

5. Sudden Death of Corpses:
This scheme have caused the death of so many Nigerian youths. Okonta Samuel was a victim as shot dead by some gunmen during the Rivers State reran election held on March 19th 2016. This scheme has caused a lot of loss to families within the country.

For me, I think NYSC should be restructured into an entrepreneurial skill acquisition scheme with the objective to equip Nigerian youths with different skills and provide support as a startup capital and by so doing, the rate of unemployment in the country will gradually reduce, hence the reduction of crime rate within the country and making Nigeria a more safe place to live.

5 Things that Affect Students Academic Performance In Nigeria.

There are a lot of things that can affect the educational performance of a student basically in Nigeria. An academic institute consists of students with different backgrounds, different behavior and of course different lifestyle.
Image of Factors that affect the performance of student in Nigeria

Below are the key factors that influence the academic performance of a student.

1. Peer Group:  
This may involve people of the same interest, age group and mostly friends. Members of this group can easily influence the persons character or belief.

Hence a students peer group in school is likely to be his friends and his or her academic performance can be highly influenced by his or her friends.

Therefore if a student has a good peer group, its likely that this student will do well in his or her studies and vice versa. For instance, a students whose friends prefer going to the club to studies might be influenced by friends. In club, there are a lot of activities like dancing, smoking, drinking and so on. A student whose friends does all these may end up doing the same.

However a student whose peer are serious with studies is likely to be influenced, hence ending up with good grades.

2. Teacher or Lecturer:
A tutor plays a great role in the academic performance of a student. The simplicity of a tutors teaching helps to spur the understanding of a student. A tutor that possess a friendly ability during teaching, will easily identify when a student is not understanding and when he or she is communicating positively to the student.

For instance, in most Nigerian higher institutions, lecturers always tell student that they will not go into details since its assumed they must have learnt that while in the secondary school, but secondary school teachers will always tell students that they will be thought in details when they get to the higher institution. From this, it is observed that it takes a bright student who went through this to gain this unknown detailed information, while dull students will be lost and this might greatly affect their academic performance.

Therefore a tutor whose teachings are not friendly and understandable, will wrongly affect the academic performance of his or her student.

3. Resources Available:
The availability of resources and materials used to study goes a long way to determine the academic performance of a student. A student with the necessary required materials like text book and handouts, is likely to increase in academic performance.

A student, who's text books and handouts are not handy can be affected academically, because there is nothing to study with and it will be a great stress to borrow from friends.

For instance in most Nigerian higher institutions, the resources handy to the student help to increase marks. Here huge points are awarded to students that bought their lectures text books and handouts.

However the availability of Materials like pen, books, money for upkeep, wears and so on, will help student  to concentrate  in their studies, since the student don't have to use the study time to work and earn money for the resources needed for studies.

4. Learning Conditions:
A students academic performance can be greatly affected by environmental and learning conditions. The number of students per tutor determine the average understanding of the  students.

In Most Nigerian higher institutions, a lecturer is assigned to teach thousands of students at the same time. Learning involves commitment and concentration to what the tutor is saying. Most of the lecturers, do not use public address system during lectures, now how will students hear what the lecturer is saying, what is the comfort of the lecture, how many persons voice could be heard.

All this can discourage a student from studying, thereby affecting the academic performance of the student positively.
But if there are a few number of students to a tutor, it will definitely turn the lecture into a sort of friendly conversation and this can go a long way to positively increase the grade of a student.

5. Self Hardwork:
Most students in higher institutions, do not know their primary reason in school. While in school, there are a lot of distractions and this has a great effect on a student's academic performance. The social activities in school causes a distractions to student and reduces his or her reading level.

In Nigeria, there are a lot of social activities in higher institutions, for instance award nights of different discipline and SUG week. The issue behind this activities is that it is done a week  or two weeks to the semesters Examination, which psychologically disorganize students and results to low grades.

A student should begin studies on time, most successful students begin studies from the first day of lecture, some even before lecture begins for the semester.

When this factors above are considered and positively worked on, then the academic performance of students will result to Excellent grades and the world will be filled with amazing students whose parents will  be proud to have as kid.
