OUR LEARNERS REVIEW
10th semester BALLB, Chaudhry Charan Singh University
It was an amazing experience got to learn a lot of new things which will definitely help me in future. I would say interacting with people knowing them and exploring different aspects of studies has helped me a lot.
I would also like to add that for me it was completely opposite of what I expected because I literally had no idea that we will be getting guidance and attention individually which doesn't happens often .
