The study aimed at examining students’ reflections on their preparedness to pass their exams in their study subjects at Solwezi College of Education in Zambia. A descriptive survey using self-administered questionnaires was employed to collect and analyze data from a sample of 135 students. A systematic random sampling procedure using a lottery draw was used to select study participants. The study findings suggest that most students generally expressed satisfaction with coverage of content in most subject areas except in music. Students also expressed confidence to pass their exams in all subject areas except in music, industrial arts and Physical Education. One major recommendation the study made was that there was need to increase teaching time for subjects which students were not taking at secondary school level but which were being offered at college to bridge the knowledge gap which was seemingly being created by students’ inadequate grounding in such subjects.
