“Students were admitted to feeling intimidated by professors’ academic knowledge and by teacher’s power to assess students and assign grades (26),” Cox writes. The students adapted a fear that they would be exposed to the class and professor as “too dumb for college.” Therefore, students did not raise their hand or ask for assistance leading them to miss out on information. Professors do not want anything but the best for their students. You can always email a professor, and they would be
Chatur had mindlessly memorised the speech, without noticing that anything is amiss, partly aided by his lack of knowledge on Hindi. But, this scene clearly showcases the errors in his way of learning and its detrimental effects. This incident also hurts the self-respect of Chatur, eventually leading to a socio-emotional conflict. His sole aim in college is to become the 1st student as said by ViruS. His sadness after the announcement of results is not due to any loss in marks, but purely due to loss of the top position in college.

They will negatively affect students who really want to study and work hard. Some students in high school who care more about going to the university and they cannot wait to go there and be with people who work hard and take it seriously. Another reason why higher education should not be free is that students would not be able to handle the stress. Also they will drop out easier and this is wrong! Students will never work hard and they would mess around.
How many times do you tell yourself that low grades couldn’t stop me of trying? How many times do you think about the success road of failing persons like Gates, Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, and Darwin? Does work success come from exams failure? Although some believe that university and exams test are the one method of evaluating the student’s performance since grades has reflected how a student doing in the course, others consider that grades should not tell much about the student’s work because of the poor predictive quality and subjectivity of some teachers in putting grades.

She starts to panic, knowing that she will surely fail the exam. She is then forced to make a decision, to consider cheating or not. Cheating is one of the safe haven of students who doesn’t manage their time. This assures the student good grades with little effort required.

In high school, he encountered lots of opportunities to be fooled about that unique posture, but still keeps his dogmatic way of living. While high agreeable children who are physically weak or lacked social skills manage to avoid being bullied, he doesn’t care about what others say. This proves that he is less agreeable than the
The popular press article “Student Course Evaluation Gets an ‘F’” by Anya Kamenetz talks about how student evaluations that are given at the end of a course can matter heavily to a professor trying to earn a promotion. Typically course evaluations are the only source of information a university uses to monitor the progress and success a professor has in his/her classroom. A number of faculty members from a university have been pushing research to support that these student evaluations may not be telling the full truth. A huge issue with these student evaluations is the participation rate can be very low. For instance, if a professor does not sit well with students that did not do well in his/her class then they might have more negative evaluations because they did not perform like they would have liked too.
The movie begins with the opening ceremony for the semester at Welton and while the boys are settling into their dorms Mr. Perry informs Neil that he thinks Neil is participating in too many extracurricular actives and that Neil will no longer be the assistant editor for the school paper. Naturally, Neil is heartbroken and tries to reason with his father, however, Mr. Perry pulls Neil aside and says, “…when you’re on your own then you can do as you damn well please, but until then, you do as I tell you.” This is a key plot point because it shows how controlling Mr. Perry is of Neil. He does not ask Neil to drop an extracurricular activity he tells him to drop the school paper. Throughout the movie Mr. Perry does not give Neil a choice, he always tells him what to do, and he is trapping Neil in a life that Neil does not want. Mr. Perry manipulates Neil even further by bringing Mrs. Perry into things by reminding Neil how much it means to her that he does well in school and becomes a doctor, something Neil does not want.
Try being a student in high school but also taking college classes to be ahead when they do graduate high school. Most kids try to be so busy just so they would not have to study because studying is probably the worst when it comes to college students. “Students who habitually procrastinate may be at risk on underachieving academically as well as putting their health and well-being in jeopardy,” (Sims 147). Students who procrastinate have a huge risk at being unsuccessful in their schooling. Even though D’s do get degrees it does not help the students be successful in any of their schooling.
