If you don’t have drive for the course you are studying, don’t be surprised you are having a low CGPA.
Not Mastering Your Lecturers
Whether you like it or not, there are always some questions a particular lecturer must set. This maybe because they do not have time to rack their brain for new questions or they want to have a smooth ride when marking.
