Having a good routine is a key to success

4 students from International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) have made the nation proud by winning the world's top speakers in three debate tournaments hosted by the Durham, Oxford and Cambridge universities. This tournament is among the toughest and most prestigious in the world. For me, the biggest challenge of this tournament is that the debaters have to prepare their case without having any help from outside resources. To do so, they must be all well informed about everything and the topics given ranged from politics, sociology, law, economics and religion.One of the debaters was also ranked in the top 10 best speakers.
Commenting on the secret of success, hard work is the key as they have to undergo training and read tonnes of articles, journals and news every day. Another added that having a good routine, and planning are important to create a balance between their life as a student and a debater.
