Carryover is a common metaphor for failure in Nigerian higher institutions and you must try hard to avoid having one.

Students usually feel bad when they have a carryover in a course. Of course, this is expected because no student would like to revisit a course his colleagues have passed.
It may be argued that carryover is not a reflection of students’ intelligence as a student could fail a course through missing script incidents. Nevertheless, you must give your best to score high in both continuous assessments and examinations to avoid carryovers.

To have a good semester, you also have to schedule your study time


So, if you don’t want to have a carryover that can cause you a set back in your academic pursuit, you’ll have to avoid these five.

1. Don’t skip lectures

This is one of the many reasons students score low grades in exams and continuous assessment. A student who skips lectures will most likely miss an impromptu test and write out of context in exams.
So, make sure you attend all lectures. Remember some lecturers like you to give them answers to exam questions same way they taught you in the class. If you miss such lecturer’s class, you are likely going to carry his course over.

2. Stop excessive partying

Partying and going to clubs every time could have a negative effect on your academic performance even if you are very brilliant.
You don’t need to hang out with friends or party all night to enjoy yourself as a student. And if you really do care about not having a carryover, you’ll have to cut down on partying.

3. Avoid needless confrontation with your lecturer

Always try your best to avoid confrontation with your lecturers, try to find amicable ways of communicating your point of view without being rude or condescending. You shouldn’t engage them in any argument that will make you look like you are trying to outshine them.

4. Start proper preparation

Poor preparation automatically translates to a poor performance in an examination. As a student, who doesn’t want a carryover in his academic record,  you need to study hard to get good grades in your exams and continuous assessment.  Don’t forget that proper preparation they say prevent poor performance.

5. Avoid behaviors that upset your lecturer

Nigerian lecturers have rules and they hate to see student violate those rules. Violating a lecturer’s set rules could get you registered in his black book.
For instance, many lecturers don’t like to see their students chewing, sleeping or side-talking when they are teaching.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)




A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.
