Yellow house courses are arguably the most failed courses on OAU campus. Even non-OAU students are of aware of the almighty yellow house (mathematics department). There are different tales of students failing yellow house courses. Some even believe it’s almost impossible to finish with a first class honors if you offer more than 3 yellow house courses in your stay in OGBA FEMI. As a fresher, I once heard of someone having 29 out of 30 in his test and still had a F. Funny right? But it is what it is.

1.FAILURE TO PREPARE : lack of preparation is one of the major reasons students fails. Failure to prepare, is prepare to fail, they say. Most students are found in this category of not prepping for exams. They await the lecture free week to start studying.

3.EXAMINATION MALPRACTICE: I know of a guy who failed MTH 202 because he asked for the canonical formula in the hall. When students enter the exam hall with the sole of aim of engaging examination malpractice, they tend to fail the course.

At times, it’s not because they copied wrongly but they are caught cheating in the exam hall. Once a student is caught cheating, the invigilator either deducts your mark or tears your answer booklet and sends you out of the hall.
