THINGS TO REMEMBER IF YOU ARE AN IIT ASPIRANT
Life means ups and downs. It is not a bed of roses and definitely not a bed of thorns either. A few things to look at, in case if you have tried and could not make it through… It is very important to take all your setbacks as a lesson and not take it too personally that it disturbs your normal life. Success and failure walk hand in hand, without them your life is not complete. The point is failure or success should not decide or define your entire life and especially “you”. Thus, if you fail in the examination, don’t get nervous rather try to stay strong and buckle up and try to move on. Always understand that it is an exam and never think it something larger-than-life. Just believe in yourself and try your very best.
If your first attempt is unsuccessful and you are looking ahead to join the IIT then you can definitely go for a repeat in the next year and overcome the failure (if you are still likely and are valid to sit in the next year’s exam). This time you can surely change your JEE preparation techniques and plan with a brand new and focussed approach.
One important thing is, “how much you learnt from your common errors in JEE” and the left over depends on your all-over preparation and competition in the given year. Try not to repeat mistakes, judge your strengths & weakness and execute your work accordingly. Above all, Believe in yourself. Every year around 12 lakh candidates appear for the IIT JEE competing for roughly 10,000 applications in various IITs in India. But the competition and clashing are huge and the number of aspirants who succeed is a small fraction of the total number of candidates. Even if you are not there on the selected list, and also don’t want to repeat, don’t take stress because, there are many other engineering institutes in India that accept JEE scores. Not coping up with one of the IITs does not mean that it is the end of your engineering career. You can upgrade your engineering career from any public or private colleges. Just keep enhancing and upgrading your skills and work on your visions and goals. At the end of the day, what is most important is how better you are at creating and developing new things, and bringing creative and innovative ideas, and how you can make life easier and tension-free.
I say, take a couple of days and let go of all the negative thoughts that are disturbing your conscience. Forget for some time that you risked up JEE Main or Advanced, forget about the peers, colleagues, and family, and gain mental peace, for some time. Once you feel refreshed and clear from negativity, decide what to do next and stand by that.
At last, know that no answer sheet paper, no OMR sheet, and no examination in this world can describe who you are. You are a supreme conscience and creator of yourself being, and 75 multiple choice questions can never fulfil the wonderful potential that you carry in you.
At this point, people may try to cheer you by telling you that “Attempting is more applauding than success”. But it is not necessary that you can’t score well next time. In case you wish to repeat, At VIGYAS, we are always willing to extend support in terms of various courses for JEE, choose one, as per your convenience for your level of preparation.
