Final term exams are in the offing and any student who is in the last quarter of school should face them with good preparation. Students find it difficult to concentrate on all topics and ace the final exams, since they have a tendency to procrastinate and also tend to cram over the exams.

The criterion that was used was based on the number of decisions that had to be made on that job in a single day.
