From time immemorial school has always been readily available to provide us with memories. While some of these memories have short durations others remain indelible and evergreen in our minds.

  • Have you ever remembered a particular scenario that happened when you were in school, or when you were in a lower level and started smiling or laughing as though it happened again??

This is the particular duty of school experiences – they make us feel good about what we faced in school or feel bad about them thereby leading us to correct them and become better people.

In the Nigerian academic sphere, there are tons of events that happen in all schools ranging from the Universities to Polytechnics and Colleges of Education (no exceptions). And as usual, we are relishing our school memories by bringing you the 5 moments every Nigerian student has experienced or will soon experience and can relate with in every Nigerian higher institution of learning.

Wherever you are, whatever course you are studying, you are sure to have all of these moments during your stay in school, make sure you make the best of them. These moments are:

  1. That moment you believe you wrote very well but your result isn’t so good:

    This moment is one of the most frustrating moments in our higher institutions of learning. You begin to ask questions like – What’s even wrong with this lecturer?; Was he blind when he marked my scripts?; why is this school like this?; When will they start rewarding my hard work in this school?; and others.

Truthfully speaking, it’s high time they addressed this bad situation in our schools because it is gradually killing the seriousness of Nigerian students. This is really common and if you have had this experience before, just know that you are not alone. Lol!

2. That moment a lecturer is asking a very hard and unfamiliar question and you are next to answer: I can never forget this scenario in school. At this moment it’s as if you are being roasted, you feel as though you could become invisible and disappear into thin air. In actual fact, this moment is even worse than failing the question itself. This has happened to me more than I can ever recount.

3. When a very hard test or quiz is cancelled/postponed:  

This is very often considered the best news a student can hear in a whole day. Here in Nigeria, we don’t really like tests or quiz no matter how intelligent we are. The news that a hard test has been cancelled can make a student start dancing as though they won a bet. Funny enough the test is sure to come but we just don’t want it to be now. Rofl!

 

4. When you scored high after having written little:

5. When you decide to read for long but you fall asleep after 20/30 minutes: Sleep is one thing every Nigerian student is battling with most especially during exam period. That’s when you will open your book and the next thing is sleep. Most people who try to stop this sleep end up sleeping longer than they ever thought possible. Lol!

The above scenarios represent what Nigerian students face in the process of studying. It’s not easy but we can’t give up still. There are too many other experiences and scenarios you can add to this list. So feel free to add your own scenario by using the comment section.
