stay calm in exams

This semester, take it easy!

When everybody is going gaga over the semester exams and you’re yet to take a nice look at your course books, here is a piece of advice- It’s OK to be a late starter. For most of us, university exams mean studying 12 days before the day and securing decent marks. This semester is no different. So stop worrying, take a quick look at yourself and face it, these exams are no big deal!

Ten Years to your rescue

For 2nd and 3rd year students it’s a customary practice to learn the ten years by-heart. As for the freshers, you’ll soon realise the miraculous powers of these holy books for DU students! It’s easy to score decent marks by just going through the past exam papers. Still haven’t bought yours? Go grab them quick.

 

Notes of the most regular student in class

Needless to say, class notes can do wonders. Also in such little time, it’s a bit difficult to finish the books completely. It’s time to say hi to your new best friend in class (wicked smile!)

Stay away from that friend

We all have a friend who scares the hell out of us by asking again and again “Kitna hua?” Distance yourself from that friend who has already finished the syllabus thrice and is going to dive in for the fourth time! We don’t need such negativity in life, do we?

Bring out your best hand

Let’s face it, more than what we write what matters to the examiners is how we write. Your presentation fetches more marks than your content. So make sure your paper is beautifully and neatly written.

Peace-out

Say goodbye to the world of social media. Avoid parties (obviously, duh!) If social media is a huge distraction for you, become less active for a few days, only then can you concentrate.
Put in your earphones, listen to some music and sit down to begin. Because it’s still okay if you start today! Good luck.

    Well, I really haven’t started and I needed just something like this! Good to know that there may be other people also, who haven’t yet started! :D
