Now a days I am very closely observing such students who are forced to do study 1-2 step ahead than their actual level .
Results are not as expected .
Few questions arise –
(A) can it be helpful to start preparing for JEE and PMT at 9th level?
(B) what type of strategies should a student follow for better results ?
(C) What my friends say , if I not force my child for JEE at 9th level ?
In my views – it is the utmost duty of parents to follow child oriented parenting and not the disable parenting .
Decision for our child should be for the development of our child and not for satisfying our ego.
All kids are not meant for JEE and PMT.
There are large number of options other than engineering and medical branch.
9th and 10 classes should be used for laying strong foundations , by encouraging students for NTSE and KVPY . This will develop a sense of competitiveness among a child .
“One step ahead ” method is good I.e. In 9th along with 9th class syllabus a student can effectively prepare 10 class syllabus. In this manner he can step up without loosing pace and his interest in studies .
Long jumps at 9th and 10 level can be disastrous.
I request all the parents to guide you child according to his/ her capabilities and not for satisfying your ego.
Always remember- “step by step you gone ahead and come some very fast “.
Problem discussed with a student-3
Question -Sir, I know I am not studying , what to do?
Reply-This situation is again one of the common problem of large number of students.
Dear student always remember –
“Motivation is the fuel of hard work.”
You have courage to do hard work, ample time …. But you may not have that single reason , why to do studies?
You may have lots of excuses , but you need that one particular motivated reason …why not to study ?
Driving force for the work may be any of followings –
1. Hunger of success.
2. Dream of bright future
3. Demand of time
4. Gratitude towards your parents.
5.To impress someone .
Dear students, select the one reason which suits you most , which does not allow you to sleep . And work for that .
Yesterday I got another discussion regarding time management with a student .
Parents are expecting 90% and NDA admission , but child has deficiency of time .
I at last conclude-
Dear students first of all decide your target , why you wanna study ….example …you wanna study for IIT or medical….or it may be for your parents … Or it may be for any other reason …
First of all decide what that single reason for which you want to study .
Now remember each and every person in this world has 24 hrs. daily…it may be US president or may be any other ordinary person.
Now divide your study hours in such a way , so that you can devote your time for at least three subjects daily.
For each subject 70% of the time should be given to current topic and 30% time to any other previous topic for revision.
Try to increase your study time per session.
Revision is an essential part of studies , maintain it regularly.
Try to appear for small tests of each subject on alternate day.
Remember …” Step by step you gone ahead and come soon very fast”…
I recently encountered with a student who is suffering from severe chemistry phobia. She is otherwise quite intelligent in chemistry but still afraid of chemistry . I had discussion with her for some time and got following observations.
1. She knows all the basics of chemistry .
2. She answered all the questions successfully .
3. She has good command over Physics and biology .
Conclusion is that she is quite good in chemistry but suffering from unseen phobia of chemistry .
(A)What can be the remedy ? ….
(B)Is there any medicine available ?..
You all can understand this is simply hesitation towards subject and phobia created by others in the life of this brilliant girl .
I told her first of all –
1. Daily write 20 times that … I have no fear of chemistry .
2. Try to change study pattern, Time table management .
3. I also prescribe her to join some …Test series …to enhance her confidence.
“Because little success can do miracle”.
