Aiming for good grades

The undergraduate exams are slated to begin soon and most students are preparing for their exams pretty seriously.

They have made timetables and some of them are even relying on guides to help them with the last-minute studies.

Metrolife caught up with a few degree students and asked them about their preparations. As a part of the semester system, students have to do projects and assignments and write tests throughout the year. This, say the students, has helped them stay in touch with the portions they have to study.

There are a couple of students who make the best of their study leave and some others who try to memorise everything at the last minute.

Chethana Rao, a second-year student of Mount Carmel College, says that the daily revision of portions in class and following a regular time-table has helped her a great deal.

 “I stick to a routine while studying and revising. I have always studied in an organised manner,” she says. 

Final-year students have taken their exams a wee bit more seriously than the rest. Denitta N Antony, a final-year BBM student, says, “I hope to do very well and keep my grades high as every grade counts. These marks can either make or mar one’s future.

I am trying to make my own notes as this will help me understand the subject better.”
Denitta also points out that going through the previous year’s question paper and group studies also help save a lot of time.

Sachin Dev, another final-year BCA student, thinks grades are important during the final year. “It is crucial because you have to carry these grades all your life. And good grades carry weight during campus placements and higher studies.

There are revision classes during study holidays, which also helps a lot,” says Sachin.  Sachin Olety, another student, points out that Bangalore University has been postponing the exams but has finally zeroed in on a date.

“The uncertainty was there but it also gave me a lot of time to prepare. I want to make sure that I have no backlog and that I clear all my papers,” states Sachin Olety.
