Plan your Study Hours- You cant study 24/7, therefore plan our your studying hours accordingly. Take sort breaks in between and make the most of your leisure time along with getting good grades!

One needs to strive to excel in their academic career. In the words of Michael Jordan “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
