Myself and the rest of team at the SUG had to press this hard, knowing that this was a popular call by the campus, as it is directly tied to the output of all students at the end of the day.

At this moment, I therefore encourage all Students to heighten examination preparations and to study even harder for the 2nd Semester Exams.

I wish you all good luck and success in advance.
