Study the smart way

Study the smart way 





With a wide range of careers on the platter, selecting the right one has become a formidable task for a student who has just passed out of school. Much attention is being paid to the period that builds the gateway to one’s future — the higher secondary years.
The popularity of engineering and medical courses has increased, resulting in high demand for them. Coaching centres have started getting importance like never before. Giraffe Learning Institute, a coaching centre, along with Education Times conducted a counselling session on June 12, 2011 at St Joseph’s Composite College, Bangalore for students who were stepping into first PU.
There are a few steps that you overlook during your two years of preparation.
I PUC IS THE KEY   
The counselling was held for both students as well as their parents, where Thomas Abraham, the director of the institute spoke about the importance of PUC education. “The transition from school to PUC is hard on the student, and most see Class XI as a break between Classes X and XII, losing the momentum they had in Class X. This makes Class XII difficult for them,” said Abraham.
“I PUC is also important for the student from an ICSE or CBSE background as they under-estimate the PUC syllabus in comparison and end up slipping in their studies,” he added.
PARENTS’ HELP VITAL   
Most students, after Class 10, feel the hardest part of their education is behind them and tend to become lax. Therefore, it is essential that parents give them the encouragement and support so that they do not feel too relaxed as they leave school. “Often, a student who has fared well till Class X performs poorly in PUC. It is the parents’ responsibility to provide their kids the right push so that they can score well in PUC as well. It is important for parents to help their child realise his/her full potential to excel in studies,” said Thomas Abraham. “I always try to motivate my son who is now in PUC I by helping him set a routine to study,” said Prakash Murthy, a parent who attended the event.
RELAXATION IS IMPORTANT   
“Earlier, we used to have tuition classes for students for one and a half hours every day. But then we realised that students have to relax to unleash their full potential while studying and reduced the number of days of tuitions,” said Abraham. Thyagarajan Balasubramanian, a student who used to attend coaching, said, “Going to tuitions every day will drain a student of energy, leaving no time for self-assessment or revision.”
SSLC STUDENTS NO LESS   
“That ICSE or CBSE students have an advantage over SSLC students when it comes to entrance examinations is not entirely true. There are only few additional topics taught in the ICSE syllabus that aren’t included in the SSLC syllabus. Students from state syllabus need not feel inferior in any way.”
SPECIAL TECHNIQUES PROVE HELPFUL   
Smart study — that’s the key. Find your own little techniques to study. “Some colleges prescribe a specific textbook but it’s better that students use whatever works for them. Use easier methods to remember important concepts. For example, in Physics, concepts can be learnt in relation to daily life events, and in Chemistry, tough chemical equations in comparison with other compounds belonging to the same family,” said Gladwin D’Souza, a teacher from Giraffe Learning Institute.

“When students slack off, they need to picture in their head a vision of what they want to become, be it an engineer, a doctor, or an architect. This will help them stay focused,” he said. “On a lighter note, people who have less fun at 17, will have the most fun at 27,” he signed off.

"Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?"


"Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?"

Your getting a foothold into the company depends on some annoying questions, which have no fixed right answer. So how do you go about answering them? Here are some tips to frame your answer.

"Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?"
Well! How you perform in an interview depends on how you answer some of the most popular annoying questions asked during the interview. The problem is, there’s no one right answer and most can land you in troubled water and rob you of the job-opportunity. Projecting yourself too high might make you sound over-ambitious, but talking very down to earth would project you as an individual lacking initiative to contribute to the company’s growth. So, what do you do?  There’s no one right answer for these; only the one that works better than others. How do you then figure out, which will work and which won’t?

Ideally find out first if you’re a good fit for the job and the company. Analyse your plans before as the interviewer with this question figures out the kind of person you’re, whether you plan ahead and set goals which match with the company’s and lastly, whether you want to move out soon or not. The interviewer also tries to gauge how well you understand what they want, whether your growth idea is compatible with the company's goals, etc. Therefore, be cautious and use some of these tips to tackle such questions:

  • Think of the things you as an employer will do for an employee: These include offering trainings and greater responsibilities, shuffling assignments, helping to focus in the individual development plan which includes goals and also putting you in an effective mentor-mentee relationship. Fame your answer keeping these things in mind.
  • From this question, your potential employer wants to know your long-term professional plans and whether hiring you will suit them or not.Talk about your career ambitions and discipline and how well you’re prepared to take up the responsibility. Also, how working with this particular company fits into your professional development. Keep in mind that this question asks you how well you know yourself and the answer justifies whether you are just floating along or have a serious career plan.
  • Where you see yourself in the company? Remember this, as the interviewer will not accept “In the next five years, I will be off to the US, patenting a product” Rather, they would prefer, “Depending on my performance and the opportunities provided, I’ll carry on the duties responsibly.” Even if you know, you wouldn’t be there, stress that you’ll stick around as no employer wants to hear that. Use the interviewer to get where you want.
  • If you’re a nerve wreck, settle for a quasi-pat answer. Say, “I want to see myself advancing in my career goal, learn new things and take on new responsibilities.” Or maybe, “I will take advantage of the available opportunities and contribute handsomely”
  • Injecting a little humour works at times depending on the interviewer’s mood. Judge that first. An answer like, "I want to be in your position"might stump the interviewer and make him/her speechless. But follow up with the explanation that with everyone doing a good job, it’s just logical that everyone moves up in the corporate ladder. The optimism and confidence might work. (Also read: How to successfully prepare for interviews)
  • Sometimes being honest helps as truth has its own advantage. Honesty works better than the best prepared scripts with its element of uncertainty. If you are a fresher, you can say, “I’ve no specific plans except that I want to work sincerely in the current profile but be open to opportunities within the organization to advance even if I’ve to switch roles. At this age, I can learn fast and adapt, which are my strengths. I am flexible and will acquire new skills to contribute to the organisation’s success.” Or as a pro you can say,“I’ll strive to refine my skills and be an expert. After proving myself in all the roles, I adorn, I would like to continue contributing in a challenging environment.”

Facing the interview isn't about what you say, but about saying what the interviewer wants to hear. (Also read: What the interviewer wants to know) Remember, honest and natural candidates are always preferred though honesty and personal ambition have no place in the corporate world. And, this dichotomy is the key to the answer. So, just be yourself, look the interviewer in the eyes, connect with him/her and answer with conviction. Give the cue that you’re ambitious but not over- ambitious and know the company's goals. The best answer can be framed taking the company's mission statement, with add-ons like you’re intelligent, hard-working, resourceful and highly motivated.

Useful Tips to attempt Final Exams (PTU)






First and the foremost, never leave the answer sheet blank.

Always choose that 'Section' about which you think you can solve it easily than the other one. e.g. If you know Section-B very well, then never go for Section-A first, because it creates bad impression.

If you start from Section-A i.e 2 marks questions, attempt every question whether you know the answer or not, and do not extend the limit i.e only 1 single page for 2 marks questions.
If you start from Section-B, you've to choose 4 questions of your choice, which you think you can answer it till last sheet.

For Section-B i.e. 10 marks questions, the answer should be of 5 pages.

Suppose, you don't know the answer of a 10 mark question, then please for God's sake, never leave it blank, try to write in big fonts and complete the limit of 5 pages.
