class User extends CI_Controller 
	public function __construct()

	public function index()
		$que=$this->db->query("select * from student where email='".$e."'");
		$row = $que->num_rows();
		$data['error']="<h3 style='color:red'>This user already exists</h3>";
		$que=$this->db->query("insert into student values('','$n','$e','$p','$m','$c')");
		$data['error']="<h3 style='color:blue'>Your account created successfully</h3>";
