Magbodo Business Summary

The Problem
Poor Academic Performance!
Nigeria is battling with mass failure and poor academic performance especially from secondary school students who participate in WAEC and UTME. Quoting Prof. Dibu Ojerinde, Registrar of JAMB, “1,015,504 candidates registered for Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) 2014 with only 47 candidates scored 250 points and above while 108,488 candidates scored between 200 to 249 points out of total score of 400 points”( www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint_Admissions_and_Matriculation_board, 2014). 

This poor performance is unacceptable which in the long run affects National productivity. The current education system approach has proven faulty in resolving this issue over the years.

It also no gain saying that young Nigerians attention has drifted towards other things apart from academics. Being studious in academic is no longer fashionable, student just find various wrong means to pass without interest in understanding the course of study. These trends have been enforced over the years with the advent of electronic media and internet which gives unlimited access to pure entertainments, sports and lots more. 

The traditional means of learning in a rigid classroom is now boring and no longer effective to student that has already been over-exposed to fun and entertainment. This is a new challenge definitely needs a new approach to make learning more effective.
