The Secret To Being Academically Excellent and genius

. ,

Is it your desire to score within the distinction range (70%
and above) in all your tests and examinations? Do you
desire to graduate from the university with outstanding
results with an appealing transcript? Have you longed to be
named as the best graduating student of your class, your
faculty or even the entire university? There is one secret to
acheive it, same way academic giants acheived theirs. That
secret is enshrined in how you study.
Cramming your notes and required text books and materials
will not give you good grades and make you academically
bright. Cliche right? But its true. Now look at this.
Understanding the material, notes and class lectures wont
give you your desired academic success either. Shocking
right? Its true. You can attest to the fact that you may have
done either of these two but havent seen significant changes
in your grades.
What then is the solution? Understanding PLUS cramming is
the secret!
We hear lecturers and other academic speakers advising
students never to cram but to simply understand what they
are being taught. They didnt tell you the whole story. A vital
ingredient is missing from the pot of soup.
When you understand a material only but dont cram the text
word for word, cramming the terms and the context that an
authority delivered the message, you appear amateurish.
This would show in your write ups in essays and you would
always be average in your objective questions. This is
because, you may understand what you want to say, but you
would use layman terms to express yourself, instead of
delivering your answers in an academic tone, thus
appearing as if a road side groundnut seller wrote the essay.
You would score low.
When you’re asked to define Electromagnetism, and you
answer by saying”I cant really remember the terms though
but it means when current or electricity and magnet power
work together to acheive an aim ” you can expect the
examiner to throw your scripts into the trash bin. A different
scenario would occur if you defined the term exactly as it
was stated in the textbooks and then proceed to explain
what it means using the terms of the field in the right
context. You then appear educated and an authority as far
as that subject is concerned and gain maximum marks.
Therefore, when studying you can approach it in two forms.
One form either by first cramming the material and making
sure you can say it by heart and then proceed to try and
understand what its talking about in such a way that u can
explain it to anyone and apply it, or you first take your time
to understand the topic and then go on to thoroughly
memorise the material.
When you do this, there is no exam you wont come up on
top and be among the best in your class and always score
above the 70th percentile. This is how to be academically
excellent.
