Going to Level 100 is one of the more exciting things that every Ghanaian student goes through in their life. It’s exciting because of all the fun stories that people tell about university.

Before you even enter Level 100 you would have heard stories of Pent Hall Week and Repu and those things always make the university sound like it’s going to be the best 4 years of your life. However, someone has to tell you that transitioning to university from SHS can also be hard. These are the hardest parts of the transition that you should watch out for.

SHS makes for a great bonding experience for most people. It’s difficult not to close to people that you’ve starved with and gone through the most stressful 3 years of your life with. When you’re still in SHS those bonds can feel like they would last forever but some people don’t even make it past Level 100 with their friend group.

In SHS, you always hate it when compulsory ‘lights out’ comes around, but in University, you’re going to end up missing lights out. People don’t sleep in university, and that means the lights in your room are going to be on till about 2/3 am and if you’re unlucky enough to end up with a roommate who just doesn’t care, they might even keep the TV on or play some music.

Relationships Require Way More Effort In University

When you’re dating someone in SHS you can send them one or two letters per semester and your relationship will be as strong as it can be. When you get university, the requirements change so much that it’s crazy. You have to take your girlfriend on dates, you have to spoil them and if you’re a girl you have to cook for your boyfriend and his roommates like you’re their mother. What happened to ‘you are the sugar in my koko,’ and all that other corniness being enough.

When you’re in SHS, there are usually only about 30 to 40 people in your class and your teacher can take his time making sure that everyone understands what he’s teaching. In university, it’s much much different. If you’re not lucky, your lecture hall might get so full that you’re forced to sit outside the lecture hall. Forget about asking questions when you don’t understand something you might not even end up being able to see your lecuturer.

Homework In SHS Is Very Different From Getting Assignments In University

University assignments are given out for a week or weeks at a time. No, don’t celebrate yet. When you find out what goes into university assignments even the 3 weeks your lecturer gives you to do the work might not feel like enough.

Although there are quite a number of people who love to read in Ghana, the average Ghanaian is not particularly a studious reader. Recently however, a conversation sparked on twitter concerning books written by Ghanaian authors, specifically, Peggy Oppong and several tweeps expressed their disinterest and displeasure in Ghanaian-authored books. Why? Because for most of these books, just by reading the epilogue of the book, you can tell the entire story and how it ends. Here are 4 of the most commonest themes in Ghanaian- Authored books.

1. The Prodigal Child.

Ghanaians are very religious people, so of course their belief in religion and morality would play a major role in the type of content they churn out. In every Ghanaian story, there is a prodigal child of either a pastor or a rich man, who engages in all sorts of promiscuous activities and then loses everything and comes back home, not alone though, with two or three kids as proof of their bad b*tching activities.

2. The Wicked Step Mother.

There is always that book that starts out with the death of the mother and a father who isn’t really looking but ends up finding love, as if it’s that easy when most people are still gnashing. He finally brings her home and of course, she only acts nice in his presence but pours hot water on the kids and beats them with bankuta when he leaves for work. Eventually, she convinces the father to let them drop out of school and then the story continues.

3. The Orphan.

As said earlier, Ghanaians will never miss a chance to preach religion to you. Authors will let these orphans go through hell and high water and when they find money in a bag, instead of them to keep it and enjoy themselves, they will spend their lives looking for the owner because according to the authors, that is the only way their lives can change.

4. The Gold digger.

The gold digger character in these books, who clearly saw the vision before any of us did, would be chilling in life, only to be tricked by someone so that they can change their “gold-digging” ways.
