INTRODUCTION

Education is commonly referred to as the process of learning and obtaining knowledge at school, in a form of formal education. Generally, at the start of a very young age, children learn to develop and use their mental, moral and physical powers, which they acquire through various types of education.

The process of education does not only start when a child first attend school. Education begins at home when the parent started to give knowledge to the child. This will be followed up by the education given by the teachers. In almost all societies, receiving an education in school is extremely vital and necessary if a person wants to achieve success in life. Thus, education is the key that allows people to move up in the world, seek better jobs, and ultimately succeed fully in life.

Getting a good education equips a person to survive in a competitive world. In a competitive world, the ignorant are either pushed into the sidelines or gobbled up by the powerful people. It is a fact that not all learning comes from formal schooling, but it is still a one sure way of making prospective employers aware of a person's skill and knowledge. In the current competitive society, a person needs all the advantages one can get in order to survive and to succeed.

One of the advantages a person may have is the being tag as the top of the class and sometimes known as the cream of the crop. As a student, how can one be the cream of the crop? What do these students usually do to reach the top?

According to Narayan (2006), successful students use different style and techniques to study. Applying the methods used will help students to reach the top. There are five (5) techniques or strategies which almost all top performing students use. These are regular study habits, clear and definite goals, plan the process on achieving the goals, less stressed lifestyle and put importance on the study.

Gaining an edge means being aware of the paths that are most needed in life. As a student, being on top would mean a better job and opportunities that would not just be a help to one self but also to the parents.

VMA Global College, as an institution helps mould the students to be the best in their chosen field through discipline and education. Students were usually given scholarships by the different shipping company during their stay in the institution. All top students of the institution land better jobs and career opportunities after the graduation.
