Genius being 90% perspiration , the students at Mata Sundri College are made to work hard and no concessions are given and none should be expected. Attendance in classes and tutorials is in strict accordance with the rules of the University and shortage therein is not condoned. Similarly, the house examination, which in a sense is a full dress rehearsal of final Exams, is taken seriously by the teaching staff, who expects the student to do the same. Internal Assessment, which accounts for 25% of the final marks, provides the students with the opportunity to enhance the final score and thereby improve the division. The year long assessment also gives both the teacher and the taught an idea of the shortcomings in the answers and provides enough time and opportunity to try and overcome them for a better performance. We strive to improve upon academic performance each year and the improvement continues apace, as a look at the results would show.
