  • The most important thing in semester system is regularity – so be regular in studies and prepare lectures daily (as per lecture schedule). Working on daily basis is the key to success in semester system.
  • Before watching a lecture, read its handouts and try to understand its contents.
  • Watching the video lecture is a must. Also, take notes while watching the lecture.
  • After watching the lecture, do study your recommended text book and other reference material and prepare your own notes (for your reference and revision).
  • Do spend at least 2 hours on a lecture to have a better understanding by utilizing –
    • half an hour for reading lecture handouts
    • one hour for watching video lecture
    • half an hour for preparation of notes
  • You are advised to learn and understand the concepts as discussed in lecture. Do not just memorize them; rather you should be able to explain them in your own words and to apply them in real life situations.

Quizzes, Assignments and GDBs:

  • Do visit your LMS on daily basis and check announcements for upcoming activities.
  • Regularity in preparing lectures will not bother you in quizzes, assignments, GDBs and other activities.
  • Try to attempt the quizzes (when announced) as early as possible because you may face users’ load on the server on last/due date.
  • Assignments and GDBs are given for the reinforcement/ enhancement of your knowledge. Copying their solutions from different websites is not only an unethical practice but also a major reason why you get Zero marks.

Examination:

  • In exams, always write “to-the-point” answer for every question (and explain it as per requirements and marks of the question). “Time management” is more important than writing long unnecessary details.
