The prospect of taking exams at college and university is often a daunting task for most students. I can honestly say I never failed one although I came close once and that was because I made an assumption. And we all know when we make assumptions we often make the wrong ones. Take my advice and learn first principles that can mean the difference of passing or failing. In my book “How to Pass a Degree with Confidence” I have created a study guide that teaches you how to avoid common pitfalls through a series of stories.
As a student representative I was well aware of the reasons why so many students failed exams or even assignments, modules, and in some cases had to retake a semester. I attended many academic board meetings as part of my role as a student representative and I understood the reasons why so many students failed each year because a common theme from professors and lecturers was often discussed. The same mistakes were being made each year by students who failed to follow first principles. I often queried the professors and lecturers at these board meetings why students were not taught these first principles and the reply was always the same. Students at university or college are regarded as adults and not children and so should be well aware of first principles.
