Under normal circumstances

A student who attends classes punctually and regularly

Who reads their books and

Make sure they understand their lessons properly

Who does their assignment and school projects

And prepares very well before any examinations

Has got all it takes to perform well

And actually, they do perform outstandingly

Examination usually reveals how serious a learner is

A serious student comes out

With flying colours in exams

And they’ve the ability

To defend their certificates

Honestly, academic certificates/credentials alone

May not be able to solve

Some of your problems in the future

Rather, the knowledge you dedicated your time to acquire

While attending classes and reading your books

And also your good conduct while in school

Will enable you to be self-sustaining

Particularly in present age

That many changes and modifications

Continue to take place in the labour market

During recruitment exercises

Think of becoming a self-reliant person

By creating your own job

How can this be possible

When the required know-how is not there

You cannot give

Whatever you don’t possess

Similarly, you can’t make use of

The knowledge you’d failed to acquire

While in school

Seriousness of students in school

Would solve many social problems

Such as unemployment, poverty, abduction,

Thievery, insurgency and some other vices

In short,

It is expected of every student

To be studious and thirst for knowledge

Certificates without knowledge in the head

Would wreck an organisation, and would also

Debar personal and social development
