Terjun tanpa pendirian

Bila kau terjun bangunan, kau pandang bawah.
Kau kenang masa silam kau, kau teringat mak bapak kau.
Rasa tenang zaman dulu, tak banyak masalah.
Beza yang nyata, sekarang kau susah.

Bila kau terjun bangunan, ramai orang sorak.
Sorak sebab gembira, sorak sebab bencikan kau.
Kau pun ikut peredaran kotak fikiran orang.
Semua taksub untuk diterima, taksub untuk puaskan hati mereka.

Bila kau terjun bangunan, kau lupakan ramai orang.
Kau lupakan keluarga kau, kau lupakan sahabat-sahabat kau.
Semua pernah berikan kau semangat, tapi kau lemah tak bertempat.
Kau alpa dengan fikiran negatif orang berikan, kau terjun tanpa pendirian.

The First Class

Good morning scholars, we all know that holiday's coming to its end. The new semester have been preparing special things for you. Hogging to your computers no more because rumour has it the new semester is going to be tough.

Welcome to The First Class
We all have that one friend who has never achieved anything higher than 3.5 and lucky for him, he got 3.98 last semester. What are the odds? We are welcoming him to the First Class, an elite fictional group created by the lecturers dedicated to all students achieving astonishing results that many students craving for. Now that our friend is one of us, lets celebrate him by warm welcome with the contradiction of this fictional club.

Unruly of Justice
This club is elite and only handful of students are selected from the bunch. Selected? Yes. Every year, lecturer made a very tough decision on who he/she has to take out from the list. Confused? At the beginning of the semester, every students already got their A's and they have to guard their A's because lecturers can and will deduct their marks if the students does not meet with the lecturer's desire. Interesting theory isn't it? So, from time to time, one by one students are kicked out from the A list and fewer people are entering the First Class. Injustice or excellent?

Excellent Students vs Hard Work
Both have the equal potential in the fair game to earn themself the title of Dean's List and we are here to decide which are better? Excellent students are those who already have the privileges and all he/she has to do is kiss their lecturers ass. Don't get it wrong, some lecturers love that and some even encourage students to practise that. For the Hard Worker, those are the people who think a lot and devoted to his or hers studies. This people are the thinkers, they have original thoughts and are not the lecturers cup of coffee. They have to be careful living in this unruly world because someday they might be kicked out of the A list. 

So 3.98, do you still want to be in the First Class? ;)

Obvious Tips #1

There are couple of things you need to know about me.

I am not smart as you think I am. During my SPM year, I failed my Additional Mathematics and Physics class. I fought, and got B and C+ for SPM. During Matriculation, I got B for both Physics and Mathematics.

I was not interested being an engineer, at the time at least.

At 2013, during UPU result came in, I got into UTHM, for Engineering Tech. I was bummed. I thought I got psychology, at that time I was so all over psychology and wanting to become a guidance counsellor for schools or universities, but things are just not meant to be.

So Engineering Tech., I got into UTHM and learnt stuffs. I failed my quizzes during the first half of the midterm. Thus, I came up with the 'cheatcode'.

In gaming, cheatcodes are used, if you're noob, literally cheating onto finishing your missions. But for me, I use the term as my advantage.

Cheatcodes for me are;

1. Books used by your lecturers.

Having or at least knowing what books are your lecturers uses as reference. This is crucial. Most of your quizzes, test and finals questions came from these books. Thus, cheatcode number one. From here, all you need to do is excel all topics and exercises. One step closer towards A+.

2. RPP.

I think I have mentioned it before, RPP. RPP is like the backbone of every subject you are taking. You should have this for all of your subjects. But if you have the time, which I doubt you will have, study off-grid, for extra knowledge.

3. The notes that no one has.

This is obvious, but rarely seen, personally, I have 3 notes, the first one if from your lecturers. Usually slides, other than that also can. Second is your own, make them yourself, from what you understand, and do not leave any part out from your notes. The third one is simple/short notes for your tests/finals. The third one is seriously crucial. Thus, your final cheatcode.

Cheating is bad, and one should never cheat in anything. This one is different, they are your advantages.

Most of them are obvious, but are rarely seen, and I am not the only one using this method.
