It was only yesterday when we covered the news that Malala Yousafzai had registered at Oxford to pursue a degree in pursuing a Philosophy, Politics and Economics. However, the past years have gone by in a blink and the 22 year old is now in her final year at the university.
Studies at Oxford are tough and it doesn’t really matter even if you’re a Nobel Peace Prize winner. You ought to compete against the best to earn your degree at Oxford and times do get tough, especially when its the final year.
No doubt, Malala too found it tough and thought to turn to Twitter to get some survival tips for her last year at Oxford.

People were quick to give some honest replies to Malala to help her through her last year at the prestigious institute.
Start projects earlier

Knowing when its time to take a breath and take a walk. Pushing yourself to your breaking point isn't going to be helpful.
I'd also say keeping perspective on how important certain things are in comparison to life, but I don't imagine perspective is an issue for you.

Ask for help when you get stuck

— Start hot and taper, don't ever be in a position where you have to catch up.
— Develop good relationships with all instructors; make sure they know you
— Help others. Being the teacher helps you learn.
Best wishes. Lots of respect for you.

Even Mira Sethi had an advice for Malala
Raid the chicken and rice cart often and without guilt

However, there were people who called out Malala for showing hypocrisy where the people and plight of the Kashmiris was concerned. Malala, being a Nobel Peace Prize winner and an activist for girls right to education has been quiet this whole time about the Kashmir issue.

Never talk against India for HR violations in Kashmir or elsewhere.

Hypocrisy should be maintained.
