6. Don’t Be Late For Exams
Always late to school? Don’t even try it during JAMB examinations…
Coming to school late is a thing every student is always advised to stay away from, but a majority of the students have formed it as a habit to always come to school late.
These types of students will always have the problems of passing school exams as they are always late for school and missing too many lectures scheduled for the school session.
During exams, coming to school late will output a very awful result as the student will be in a rush and might be given late penalties while others are busy writing their examination.
The above situations can disorganize a student and make him/her perform low during the examination and probably submit same time with others.
