Advice for students:
It is hard to understand Indika, she goes off track a lot, and fails to answer many questions. You have to put in much more effort than you put in your regular classes. The key is to do all the assignments on time, make a study group, and try to do your best in the group project. Most of the class grade depends on Group Project, so this is where you put most of your efforts.
