Few Tips for CBSE Boards & JEE/NEET 2018 Preparation

Beware of advices

–  Nothing offensive but stay away from teachers who advise to focus on Boards only and consider competitive exams in following year. Just like both exams are important, your time is also precious.
 Talk to people who have lived it and not merely talking without being into your shoes ever. For example when I sat to wrote I took tips from my husband who is a senior physics teacher in Aakash Medical Coaching. And being from the industry he has coached ample of students and knows in and out of preparation of both the exams. I would have done Google search but that would have been misleading as I doubt if it’s mere advice or expert talks.

Last but very important– Know that it’s not the end. Despite of all the efforts if somehow you don’t manage to get through it, know that you are made for something more beautiful. Move on!
Let me draw a picture for you….

Boards and jee/NEET are just exams

This picture is from BWF world championship 2017 where PV Sandhu was narrowly defeated by Japanese player Okuhara. What do you think Sandhu lacked? They both are top class player, got best coaches in the world, best equipments, and dedication but still one had to loose. Sometimes it wasn’t for you simply. It’s not end of the world. But take yourself to that level first and accept whatever may be the outcome!
