“I am grateful to ALláh, my family and friends,” she said, “Tenacity, resilience, consistent dedication and my friends, enabled me to do this. I simply make sure to read every day; I don’t really have any study routine. I really do mean daily when I say that. I always read everyday before going to bed. I make sure that I never accumulate or postpone any notes until the following day because I use my weekends exclusively for the review.”

“The greatest thing, in my opinion, is to ask yourself, ” Do I read better in the morning, afternoon, or at night? ” Do I assimilate more when I read on campus or at home? Instead of merely following friends, one must respond to each of these. I could recall a period of time when I recognised that reading in the comfort of my room home helps me to assimilate more than doing so on campus, even though my friends continued to read in Campus at night.

Here’s my lesson: never follow your buddies. “Where and when do I assimilate better?” ask yourself.

“Other than hard work, I would argue there is no shortcuts to success. When I say hard work, I mean working intelligently, but hard. There are numerous factors that might make the process easier, despite the fact that there is no secret.

“First and first, I think it’s important for all students to understand the personality of their lecturer: ” does he/she take attendance, give notes in class, do they want their notes back, or do they always want you to go the extra mile?

“Furthermore, as the saying goes, ” Information is indeed powerful. ” Therefore, look for information. Whenever I go to a new level, I always ask my more experienced colleagues how it went, how they succeeded, what the professor wants, and so on. I have never taken an exam without knowing what was expected of me before hand. Information seeking is quite relevant. There’s no wrong in asking; ask around. Maintain excellent friendships as well.

“Since my days in secondary school, I have always been fortunate to have friends who share my interests and passion. Later, while attending OAU, I made new friends who are like family to me. Buddies with greater vision than I do. Because terrible companions can negatively impact one, this is an extremely important component of attaining tangible things. I would say the journey was very easy because I have good friends. Make good friends, it’s really going a long way.

“And lastly, pray to The Creator. There is nothing one cannot achieve without ALláh.

“Being a first-class student has been so thrilling, and I have been commended for the effort so far by a lot of people. I am always excited to embark on my professional journey and eagerly looking forward to exploring diverse opportunities.”
