project2014 getting started

Introduction

Last year, many students went to sleep earlier and were caught off-guard by the last minute rush. In this type of incident, you need to plan your calender so that by the beginning of third term on September, you have cleared everything. I said and I will still insist, computer practical papers holds the keys to better grades. They are the easiest papers and have more influence on the outcome of your grade. Spending more time in the computer lab to do constructive work is a good plan to initialize these better grades but this does not necessarily mean that you should drop or desist from reading the theory part. Balance but give practicals more time.

Planning

Adopt this timetable for the project and stick to it to the latter.
