Studying is one of the most important processes inhuman life.
Without studying, human cannot live well because they will sufferand do not know what they should do in real world. Studying always take placein every step in human life even though they do not realize it. It also happensin students’ life. Students can improve their ability when they studyseriously. Although students have a lot of experience if they do not study,they will never improve their knowledge. School is the best place to study. Therethe students can get a lot of new knowledge and also experience. Unfortunately,if students do not study seriously in school, they will face some problem, suchas difficult to understand the material given by the lecturer, getting a badscore, and spending longer time to finish study.
The first bad effect of being half-hearted in thestudy is students difficult to understand the material given by lecturer. Whenthe students study half-hearted, they will belittle the course and begin tothink or do another thing when the lecturer explains the material. For example,when a mathematics teacher explains the calculus, the half-hearted students willnot pay attention and prefer to play games in the class because they are not interestedin studying the material and want to avoid it.
It makes them do not have thebasic knowledge of the topic. They will be confused when they have to solve thequestions about calculus and in the end some of them give up and never study it.It makes them do not have the capacity to fulfil the standard that the lecturerhas made. The second effect of taking the study casually is thestudent will get bad score. If the students do not understand the topic givenby the lecturer, they cannot perform well on the exam. Lack of understandingthe material will make them do not know how to answer the questions or cannotinterpret the questions. Without understanding the material, the probability ofgetting all the answers correct is low. Moreover the low probability means theywill get a bad score on the exam.
Usually, the lecturer have their minimumscore for the students to past their class. If the students cannot get thescore above the minimum criteria, they fail and have to retake the class againin the next year or semester.The third bad effect is the students spend a long timeto finish their study. Every course has its own standard score.
If they do notget a score above it, they will fail to pass the class. As the consequence, theyhave to retake the same class again to get the standard score or above it to pastthe class. Usually, the same class will be held in the same semester. Forexample, if they get the course in the third semester, they can only retake itagain in the fifth semester. Therefore, they have to wait 1 year to study overagain. Besides, they can retake the course if they still have the rest ofuniversity credit unit (in Bahasa Indonesia means sistem kredit semester)because the universities have their own rules to make sure that their studentsunderstand the course, so they give limitation for taking the university creditunit.
Mostly, the university gives 24university credit unit for each student. If they want to retake or take othercourses but they already have 24 university credit unit, they should wait untilthe next semester. Therefore, they will wastetheir time in order to remedy the bad scores.Everyone wants to finish their study as soon aspossible.
But, there are still some students who study casually. Studyingcasually will create some bad effect, such as difficult to understand thematerial given by the lecturer, getting bad score, and spending longer time tofinish study. To avoid the bad effect, students should pay attention to thecourse material and also the lecturer’s explanation. Paying attention andstudying seriously is the key to be successful in the class.
