Well I studied for this semester for only a month in which I had made a timetable of how to study. I would just study the content and make the concepts clear and would write in my own words.

Ya, in some papers, I had drawn the diagram where I feel it is required to make answers more presentable. It is not mandatory sometimes I guess.

By sitting idle and listening songs for sometimes. This makes us feel fresh and then I again start by preparation I feel its better this way once you feel distracted while studying.

If I would be the Vice Chancellor, I would like to change the pattern of examination plus would like to introduce more practical subjects than theoretical subjects which will help the students to gain more practical knowledge about working of the outside world.
13) Many students prepare sincerely but constantly live under fear that they are not from big college / not from English medium and eventually lose confidence. What message would you like to these students?
