“I don’t like my course, should i take another UTME or go ahead with the course. I am a science student and i have always had passion for courses relating to health sciences, i applied for nursing science but didn’t meet the cut-off , so i was given botany instead. Botany is also a course under science and it deals with the science of plant’s life. I don’t like this course but i was told to divert my interest towards it and I still have passion for my desired course. Should i take another UTME or go ahead with the course. ”
My Take On The Topic – Career Advice – I Don’t Like The Course I Was Given, Should I Continue Or Take Another UTME?
The road of life twist and turns and no two directions are ever the same, yet our lessons come from the mistakes we make as success does not consist of never making blunders but in never making the same one the second time. I would advise you to take another UTME and go after what you have passion for, so that you don’t live to regret not doing so in future. Successful people don’t shy away from challenges , they get knocked down by obstacles but they stubbornly refuse that to prevent them from moving on.
You have to keep moving no matter what , sit up tight and prepare for another UTME and while doing that, do not forget to work on your weaknesses. You already know the UTME format and you have the experience , by doing that you tend to be working towards a better score.
In addition to working on your weaknesses , endeavour to work on lots of past questions , it doesn’t only help you prepare but also help you get used to the format of the examination. Preparing for an external examination requires a wide range of knowledge and there are lots of reliable sites you can gather materials and past question from.
Consequently , you might want to consider other institution with low cut-off marks and with different admission format. Moreover , there are also some alternative programs like Pre-degree , IJMB , and diploma programs. These alternative programs might be somewhat easier.
Determination and dedication gives you all it takes to carry on in the race of achieving your goal. When you are determined , you refuse to allow anything to stop you from doing what you want. Take another UTME , give it your best, be focused and you are already a hundred steps closer to your dream course.
