Many of us think dreaming big is the way to success. You must have heard dream big and shoot for the stars–because if others can do it, you can do it too, right? Also, you will never know unless you try.
But simply dreaming big can’t make you achieve your dream. It’s the journey matters. The path to your dream is what makes you the person you are. For maximum results, you should not lose focus and stay motivated. All the hard work & time that you put in should be channelised. Here are a few tips to keep you on the right track.
Know what you want to pursue
Every student is different. Everyone has different dreams, aspirations and ambitions. Do not follow the herd. Don’t study a subject that you despise because all your friends have taken it up or your parents told you so. It is your life and hence, at the end, it must be your decision. Take the decision carefully.
Don’t be! If you are looking to understand what stream would be best suited for you, take Avanti career profiler test.. This test asks you simple questions about your interests in different types of activities, analyses your personality and recommends career options best suited for you and the stream you should take up for that.
Here are a few tips you should follow once you have a goal:
Once you decide what you want to pursue, you should be able to create a daily goal leading you to achieve what you desire. Reading a few days before the exam will only lead to a lot of stress which will ultimately affect your physical and mental health.
Success is not obtained in a day. It is a result of daily effort that you put in. If you are pursuing science stream, we have the best app that can help you learn quickly with limited time you have in hand: Avanti Gurukul.
There are 2 modes in this app: Learning mode and Revision Mode.
If you want to study a chapter from the start, you can go to Learn section in the app. Each chapter is divided into topics which are further broken down into smaller concepts which are important for a person to grasp in order to learn that topic effectively and there are Concept Videos corresponding to all the topics that you need to study for cracking the competitive exams. You can watch and learn at your time and pace. Moreover, you can pick up a topic exactly from where you left it off earlier.
Once done with the videos, you can attempt quizzes on the app. There are both topic as well as chapter quizzes to gauge whether you understood all the concepts in the chapter well or not.
If you feel you need to revise a topic, you can start with taking the diagnostic quiz available in the topic. Diagnostic quiz gives you an idea of how well you have understood a topic. Once you take the quiz, based on the question you did wrong, the app suggests you which videos you should watch in order to get those concepts right. This way you can revise faster in an effective manner by focussing only on topics that need your attention.
Learn to manage time
Time management is an aspect that every student needs to learn. With the homework from school and assignments from coaching, it becomes very difficult to manage time for self study. But believe me, it is important. You should draw a well defined timetable and must adhere to it.
Depending on the difficulty level of the chapter or the topic, you should decide for yourself the number of days required to finish it. Before proceeding towards the new topic, you must ensure that you have finished the previous one. Revise the previously learnt concepts from time to time so that you don’t forget them while learning new ones.
If you are a Science student, with the fast learning and revision mode in Avanti Gurukul app, you do not need to worry too much about not having time in your hand.
Be Thorough with the Syllabus
You should be well versed with the syllabus of exam you are giving. Solve previous year papers and analyse them. You should know which topics are important and asked frequently in the examination. This will again help you in time management.
For Science students, we have all the previous year papers for competitive exams such as CBSE Boards, JEE Main, JEE Advanced, NEET, KVPY, KCET etc. We also have videos on analysis of these papers available in the Feed section of the app.
There is no shortcut to success. Along with learning daily, you need to practice problem solving. Also, once the syllabus is complete, time yourself and solve previous year papers. Practicing mock papers help you put your brain in Test like situation which helps you identify knowledge gaps, improve your speed and in turn improve confidence.
With Avanti Gurukul app, you can practice all you want. It also helps you understand the concepts in which you are going wrong, suggests concept videos accordingly and help you understand these concepts in a very short span of time.
Keep Calm on the D-Day!!
Do not lose your calm on the exam day. It is understandable to be nervous. But there is nothing to gain by worrying too much. The more stressed you are, the greater the chances of you making mistakes in the paper. Believe in yourself and give it your hundred percent.
Remember that even if things don’t work out as you planned, you will be alright. Times have changed and there isn’t any single, set path that guarantees success. The world is filled with a lot more opportunities than you can imagine. All that matters is you should be able to pick yourself up and have the courage to look for another opportunity. If you keep crying over the spilt milk, you wont realise when the next opportunity comes your way.
