Being a teacher and advisor, I have heard all sorts of reason given to me when I asked the students about their problems, and why they were absent from class. I compiled my findings about the mistakes tertiary students made and discovered that the challenges were mainly due to lacking knowledge in study skills. I have listed 10 common reasons why college students fail and some suggested solutions to help them improve.
The Free eBook - '10 reasons college students fail - How to overcome the obstacles in your study?' is targeted at freshmen, foundation year, and 1st year undergraduate students, including mature students, to be aware of the mistakes most students make in their first year of tertiary study that lead to dropout. Its main objective is to help students find solutions for their study challenges before it is too late.
