Question: How to avoid mistakes like copying in exam?

Question: Am I an average student? How should I focus on my studies?
Prime Minister Answer: Congratulations on knowing you are an average student. Many students tend to self-assess. If we know ourselves enough, we can try and achieve even the impossible.
Question: How to deal with criticism from the opposite party?
Prime Minister Answer: Criticism is the bedrock of democracy. That is the way to a successful democracy.
Question: How to stay away from social media, online games during exams?
