Those who wake up late, make it a point to wake up before 6 am from tomorrow and study. This is what I did too and benefited – so I am not preaching what I have not practised. I feel my reminder is timely since you still have about 6 or 7 months before the final examinations at the end of the year. Each human being is gifted with different sets of skills and talents.
