what students do wrong
What students do wrong?
  • Start studying late in the Block
  • Always hoping for postponements of exam dates
  • Selective & superficial study & only handouts

what students do wrong1
What students do wrong?
  • Do not ask enough questions
  • Do not make good use of panel discussions
  • Overestimate themselves
  • Do not read the disciplines which have less no. of lectures in the block
  • This results in failure to integrate knowledge & failure to understand the basic concepts

  • Work hard and make yourselves & your parents proud of you and maybe one day, the whole world will be proud of you
  • Visualize: What and where do you want to be 10 years from now!
  • Then work hard for that
special advice
Special advice
