How to fail?

Dont attend lectures/practicals or miss most of them.


Attend lectures but dont pay attention in class.
Dont do pre-work before coming to labs.
Come to labs with your friends lab solution.
Dont keep up with the required readings for the
course.
Dont do or do very less practical on your own.
Over-work; do others assignments/labs.
15

How to succeed?
Heres the amount of time I would suggest you to
spend on IS121 alone.
3 hours lecture + 2 hours practical + 3 hours
additional online activities (Moodle) + 4 hours
studying = 12 hours/week!
