1 million prime number generation in less then half of a second …

This is an optimized code of prime number generation.
This question was asked in an entry test of a software house that how can you generate 1 million prime numbers in less then a second.
I wrote the code that generates the prime number and add to a list in 0.39 seconds to be specific 390.8387 milliseconds.

Important key point here to understand is that except 2 no even number is prime so that is why i have started it from 3 and increment 2 so by this why we will not be checking any even number.
public static void prime()
List l = new List(1000000);

for (uint i = 3; i < 1000000; i += 2)
bool isprime = true;
for (uint j = 3; j*j <= i; j += 2)
if (i % j == 0)
isprime = false;
if (isprime == true)

And to execute code and also calculate the running time you will need the following code.

Stopwatch stopWatch = new Stopwatch();
prime();//Prime Function
TimeSpan ts = stopWatch.Elapsed;
string elapsedTime = String.Format("{0:00}:{1:00}:{2:00}.{3:00}",
ts.Hours, ts.Minutes, ts.Seconds,
ts.Milliseconds / 10);
Console.WriteLine("RunTime " + elapsedTime);
Console.WriteLine("RunTime " + stopWatch.Elapsed.TotalMilliseconds);


University Management System

The Video below contains the complete project on university management system. The working of this project shows how a real world project should be working from scratch to the end. This contains all the elements of a perfect university management system. The project video will help you guide how the university management system should work and what are the basic necessities which should be kept in mind while  creating university management system.
