Understand Your Interest Areas

Consequently, those who aspire to pursue engineering, this be it. They need to be prepared for a rigorous and uphill climb, till they reach the summit and enjoy the success.

Draft a Plan

Plan in a way that allows your efforts, to work in cohesion with skills and smartness. The perfect mix of these three will enable you to tread on the designated path. Plan milestones and achieve them in dedicated time. This will also boost your confidence and keep you away from unnecessary pressures and frustrations. Discuss your doubts at helpful portals, wherein other students who tread on the same path share their thoughts and so do many teachers and experts. askIITians offers past trends for reference.

Prepare Well

  • While a good plan will iron out various challenges, you still need to prepare well. You could do that with utmost efficiency if you take one thing at a time and prepare that well.
  • Always streamline your curriculum in a manner that it seems like small pieces of a large pie. Keep binging one small piece at a time.
  • Schedule timelines to eat one piece and break to return for the second one. Respect those timelines.
  • Refer well researched and valid study material. Students who wish to seek further guidance on coaching or study material: consult with ex-students at askIITians
  • Bid distractions like television and online games a goodbye. Rather focus on your mental and physical health through meditation and regular workouts.
