It is time for the exam at Delhi University (DU). And almost every college student has the means to prepare for exams. Some start on the first day when classes begin for the new batch, while others postpone and wait until the day after the paper. As college students come back for offline exams across DU, appearing with pen and paper in them, we want you to tell us which exam is the killer?

A last-minute crammer
For those who ignore textbooks throughout the year, this is a contest to see how quickly a semester’s worth of curriculum can be crammed. With exams just around the corner, many will probably run to collect notes and call on friends and classmates to inquire about important sections. And the only option was to burn the midnight oil the day before the paper. “I am part of the dance society aur iske saath padhai do hoti nahi hain,” says Yash Narayan, a final year BA (prog) student at Kirori Mall College: “I started studying five or six days ago. .

After announcing exam dates, they plan their schedules according to the curriculum and divide their time accordingly. And on D-Day, they’re ready to roll! “I start my preparation at the time we get the papers before the papers start. Although we have the practicals and this time we don’t have a big break, I try to use that time by systematically dividing my time according to the curriculum at hand,” says Amishi Chandra, a second-year student at BSC. Statistics at PGDAV College. “When I get a break between newspapers, I first cover things that I can’t study or things that take up time, and then get down to things that are easier or less time consuming,” he says.

These are the friends who ask for a summary of important things minutes before entering the exam hall. Thupstan Norden, a second-year student of Ramzas College of Political Science (Honors), says, “I occasionally read my books by accident but begin my preparation before my exams. Stress helps me learn faster and get the most out of last minute study. No matter what my peers say, I know how to manage my time effectively!
These are the students who are most in demand during the exam. They are classroom book worms, always ready with their books and answers when the professor asks a question in the classroom. They get excited at the mention of texts and exams. And you may not like them, but you will definitely love them when the tests are approaching!
