Three parts of a course - The Prestige way!

Every course has 3 parts or acts.

The first part is called "Quiz 1". The professor gives you something ordinary - tutorial problems or multiple choice questions or one line answers. He gives you this problem, perhaps he asks you to solve it - to see  that it is indeed solvable. Yeah, unaltered, normal. But of course, its not.

The second act is called "Quiz 2". The professor takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extra-ordinary. Now, you are looking for the solution but you wont find it because of course, you are not really solving. You dont really wanna know. You want to be fooled!

But you wouldnt be happy yet. Because solving a problem isnt enough. You have to earn grades! Thats why every course has a third act - the hardest part - the part we call "End sem".
