Some of us at times feel so exhausted, others loose interest, still others feel sleepy. In this poll we will find out the best time of the day to put in ur best when studying to retain greatly. It would also be a pointer to solving the exhaustion and lack of interest etc we see members being confronted with during their preparations. Vote ur choice please.
