A very warm welcome to all Students to VU and on vustudents.ning.com
Every Semester a number of students take admissions ...VU Study is not easy. Many person take vu study easy and do not give full attention to study and in the end they see a bad result.
So according to my experience in Virtual University of Pakistan , I want to share some methods to study in VU.
Visit daily your VULMS for checking latest on lectures and opening of any new assignment/ GDB/Online Quiz etc. Also see announcements, and see you profile, fee and other important issues,,,
Here are few very important tips for getting excellent / very good grade:
1. Plan your activities of whole semester.
2.. Keep all the notes, books and handouts ready on very first day of classes.
3. Make your time table and follow it strictly.
4. Read the lesson once before listening it.
5. Listen the lecture with full concentration.
6. Make your own notes.
9.Watching a video lecture is compulsory.
10.Not only memorize but also understand the concepts thoroughly. You must learn application of concepts.
11.In exams, always write “to-the-point” answer for every question. “Time management” is more important than writing long stories.
12.Always do past Quizzes with reference provided on www.vustudents.ning.com ....and try to learn the concept of "why this option of mcq is true?" ....and search it in handouts...and capture the key concept behind that mcq.
13.For quick Revision You can go through the Lecture Power point slides provided in your LMS
14.Do lots of Past papers before and during exams....mostly mcqs come from the past papers.
