The Basic Reasons Why Students Failed In Exams
SIX REASONS WHY STUDENTS FAIL EXAMS Writing By Oruka Otuene
Lack of adequate preparation:
This is the most common reason why students fail exams. A myriad number of students fail to read and properly memorize their course material.
Thorough preparation and hardwork is a key criteria for academic excellence. You must make sure to read, read and read your lecture material over and over again.
Students also complain of forgetting stuff in the exam hall. I will assert this to lack of preparation. Repeat your notes consistently. Repetition enhances memory.
You can never be over prepared; you haven’t finished preparations until after the exams
Attending tutorials without reading:
It’s fine to attend tutorials. Infact students that attend tutorials have an upper hand over their colleagues because they will be exposed to more information and better understanding. But attending tutorials without reading is wrong.

You must always re-enforce what you’re taught in tutorials for better understanding and remembrance.
:Neglecting course online/syllabus
Neglecting course outline/syllabus is one of the reason student fail exams. Some students don’t focus on their lecture notes and materials.
They think they have prepared by covering large portions of big textbooks.
Every lecturer set his/her exams questions from his/her lecture notes or course outline, so you must restrict yourself to your lecturer course content. Don’t bug your brain with unnecessary information.
Not understanding exam questions:
I made this mistake several times in school. On the sight of a familiar question I would rush to answer it without proper understanding,
this cost me a lot cause I would only discover my errors after the exam when it’s too late to correct. Understanding exam questions is very crucial and important.
You must be meticulous in the exam hall. Carefully go through the instructions and analyse every question properly before you answer.
Depending on fellow student:
Some students don’t read. They depend on their fellow students to assist them in exams. You can only trust in your abilities.
You can’t trust someone else, probably that person might fail you in the exam hall. So you must learn to prepare and fortify yourself for exams.
Don’t depend on others. You can actually write and pass and exam without any assistance
Prayer is so important. I have come to understand that the spiritual realm controls the physical realm.
When you pray, you commit everything to God. God is not an usuper.
He has given us right to make choices for ourselves, so he needs your permission to guide and lead you.
So learn to always seek his help in prayers. Pray before and after every exam.
Anything that involves God cannot fail.
