JEE Main May session has been deferred. MUSBA HASHMI speaks with NITIN VIJAY, Managing Director, Motion Education, who talks about how students can make the best of this time and score well
JEE Main has been postponed once again. While many are not happy with the continuos delays, but it goes without saying that it is definitely the need of the hour. More so, when the country is witnessing more than 3.5 lakh cases per day.
“Nobody can do anything about his. The only positive part is that students are getting more time to study,” Nitin Vijay, Managing Director, Motion Education, says.
With that being said, it is not the time for students to lose hope and or become complacent, instead they should utilise this period to study and work upon their weak subjects.
“If a student was preparing to attempt the May session, we assume that he must have completed his syllabus. Hence, the students now have to follow proper revision strategies. They have to revise every chapter twise at least in the next two months. Their focus should be on following correct revision strategies, this will help them big time,” Vijay tells you.
Students can start by focusing on their weak concepts and practicing as much as they can.
However, this might not be as easy as it sounds. The continuous delays might result in students losing motivation. Hence, keeping yourself motivated is the key.
“Students have to keep themselves motivated. Thinking about the positive side of getting extra time for preparation might help. But, at the same time they have to realise that every student is getting the same amount of time. Hence, they have to utilise it in the best possible manner. This time will change their course of future. Students need to remove all the frustration and negativity and concentrate on their studies,” he explains.
Improving speed is another factor students can work upon during this time.
“Identify your mistakes and correct them. Most of the time, students tend to miss spotting their mistakes, this way they continue to do it. Next, work on your accuracy and speed. This will give you motivation to study. Learn to read questions in one go, this is one part that most of the students miss on. They don’t know how to read a question in one go,” Vijay says.
The reason behind this is that students don’t read a question as a full statement, they read it word by word. “Try to read the question as a statement, picture what it says in your mind and then comprehend it. Keep on practicing and you will learn to read questions in one go. Good strategy coupled with motivation will help you achieve good score,” he explains.
He emphasises on the fact that these delays don’t mean wastage of time. It is clearly a bonus time for students.
“If you and your family are safe at home, thank God and see the time as a gift. If you can change your mindset, you can change your life. It’s a game of mindset,” he says.
He adds that the students at his institute have already understood this and are busy asking questions and solving problems without thinking about the rest of the things. “The ones who are genuinely interested in studies, can study any where at any time. They just need motivation,” Vijay says.
