NERVOUS SYSTEM I
At university level, the tutor facilitates student learning without spoon-feeding. Therefore, you are expected to:
* Read your textbook, attempt the questions before the tutorial
* You may enter the class and sign your attendance after showing your tutor that all tutorial questions have been completed; even if you don’t know how to do, write something - you’re not advised to leave answers blank in the finals.
