The other day a student asked me, " Sir , how some I only got C+ when I submitted all my assignments?"----and this question was asked in BM, not in English...
How do you tell a student of a higher institution that the content on the assignments determine the answer ...just because ALL assignments are submitted it doesn't guarantee you an 'A" ( shiver me down my spine when I typed that !) !!!!!! My mind just went berserk when I heard his comment....mind you ..this comes from someone ( no disrespect intended) who couldn't speak two complete sentences in English. I would have thought he should have been grateful for a C+ and it wasn't a D-. The mind boggles !
From my past observation , I hope the person now realizes that life isn't all a barrel of fun and laughter in class....that it takes more than just laughing and joking in class to get a good grade. That there's this two-word-nine-letter that matters most when you want to be in an institution of higher learning.
I honestly and seriously hope that there aren't too many of such specimens around..
