I am sending some tips to score good GPA in semester system which

You need to complete the requirements of the degree program.There

system to semester system.

lectures and take your own notes from the lectures. Keep putting
the notes on side for revision over the weekend and near to

marks. Don’t loose them.
3. Try to achieve best possible grades and do not worry too much
about the duration of the degree program.
