The True Story by Habee Bullah Affandy, Recipient of the ANC award

ANC, the award that I know every student want to have. Some of us might think that this course, IS110 is nothing compared to other courses like engineering or medical. Some might see that even though we succeed, it doesn’t mean a thing cause people always say that it’s easy. Well to those people, let them join this course and see whether they can pass with flying colors or not. To those that might think that this course doesn’t promise u a good future then you’re wrong. Rests assure my friends, as long as u guys do well, there are tons of opportunities out there for us. In degree u will see it more clearly.

Well that’s that. Here I would like to share with you what helped me to get that ANC. Before that even though that some of you did not manage to get that dean’s list for certain semester, well that does not mean you are not doing well. Give everything you got in studying and you’ll be fine if you have good result. Well back to the main point, here are some tips that might help.

First, never ever make any lecturers dislike you. This doesn’t mean you have to be suck ups or teachers pet. I really hate those people, hahaha. Just show them respect and do all the assignments asked. Don’t simply do it just to finish things up. Put your passion into it even though it’s boring. Trust me I know there are assignments that are boring.

Second, have friends. Not just those in your group but the other groups and other courses as well. These friends will be your support if you have problems. Even though you have much better result than them, don’t let your ego stop you from asking anything you don’t know from them. Don’t ever let friends hate you. Be humble. Help them if you can.

Third, this course requires lots of memorizing. The best time to memorize is at 5 am to 7 pm. Most of the time I just memorize from 5am till 6.30am though cause its really hard to resist the temptation of my bed.hehehe.but if u can forward till 7.

Fourth, concentrate in class. To be good, it doesn’t mean you have to be a bookworm or a nerd. Just focus in class and understand what you are learning. Don’t be shy to ask in class if you don’t understand cause it would be stupid to do so. Who cares what people say about you. The important thing is you understand.

Fifth I don’t know if this works for you but I never studied in the library. Why? Cause I keep seeing other people and I cant concentrate. Better to study in my room.

Sixth, have fun. Enjoy yourself. Play sports for boys or just go shopping for girls. This helps you to release stress. Trust me I know there are lots of pressures being a student. Do anything that makes you happy. The one legal though. That’s why you can see me more on the futsal court rather than the library.

Seventh, to those that are madly in love with someone, make sure that person is supportive and cares about you. He or she should be understanding in the things you do. If she or he is not someone like that, just go and find another. They are not worth it.

Eight, be strong mentally. Even though there are many difficult challenges that came to you, be patient and don’t simply give up. Proof to people you are not weak. You might face back stabbing friends or problems that just make you sick. But, keep on being strong. Face everything with a smile.

Nine, music. If I just had enough or there’s just to much to take, I listen to some music. Whatever music that you like. Sing a long if u want. Beside, one way to improve your language especially English is through songs. So sing your lungs out.

Well that is much about it. To those people that really help me to achieve the ANC I really appreciate all of you. My family, my lecturers, Sir Bakri, Sir Zaffian, Mdm. Suriani, Mdm. Imelia, Mdm.Sabariah, Sir Sharin, Sir Rafiz, Sir. Ismail, Ms. Favilla, Ms. Zainon, Mdm.Hannan, Ms. Suhaida and Mdm Norlida. My friends the one I love. Without these people, it’s impossible for me to achieve the ANC. A million thanks for all the people.
