The same is true for the "none of the above"  Tip no 3 Read every option, even if you are more than 100% sure about the 1st option.  Tip no 4 Try exclusion mechanisms in case of confusion.  Tip no 5 Know anything about the question or the options – leave the question  Tip no 6 can rule out 1 option, try to attempt it.  Tip n

  1. Well, very carefully scripted piece. So much is there but we wonder why then the students of this university are somewhat unknown citizens in an all India affair except in some 'pockets'. Don't you think it is because of the AMU campus atmosphere which is too much self-centered, promoting one kind of introvert nature among its residents or is it the students themselves indulging in biased activities ? This can never bring any organization or institute a fair image and popularity among all communities in a country like India. Any sugestions. . .

  2. dear i think you are a bit mistaken at this point. students of AMU are not at all unknown citizens in india. rather they are doing so well... even abroad amu is a well known entity. i passed about 15 years of my life in that campus and i am not saying it emotionally. good and bad are always there in any institution or community but believe me overall atmosphere and educational standard of aligarh university is far better than hundreds of other universities.
