Preparation for Upcoming exams

Preparation-for-Upcoming-exams

 

There comes a time in our life when we withdraw from any social activity and surrender ourselves to the fate by reclining in solitude. And no other time than the one which awaits upcoming exams suffices this state of an individual. We all have been subjected to an abhorrent phase or phases where several hours of chronic rote learning followed by sleepless nights before exams had triggered our inner restless beast to cope with the upcoming exams pressure. Though, no matter how much proficient a student is with the preparation, the fear of upcoming exams get’s on everyone’s nerves. However, once a student becomes willing enough to decode the exam fear, the rest becomes assured. Here are some tips and tricks to overcome the Exam fright which can assure a soothing experience while preparing for any exam.

Prepare Well-

This is the ultimate layman’s guide to restore faith in preparation. By far, the easiest and foremost step to avoid exam jitters is ‘preparing well’ for the upcoming exams. Books for upcoming exams are the bible for any student until the time when the upcoming exam finally comes. The only saving grace for any student is the same text book which seems to be a black spot in the eye for the entire academic curriculum. Preparation in a definitive manner is the key to success and somehow, a good amount of preparation is the best defense for exam fright.

Formulate a proper study schedule-

What seems to be a daunting task few days before the exams can be dealt with ease if only one knew the beauty of studying consistently throughout the year. Forming a proper time table for every day studying is much better than putting it off until a few days are left for exams. Form an effective time table dividing the entire study time in a way which utilizes each subject perfectly. Give time to each and every subject as per the requirements and religiously follow books for upcoming exams as no other book than the textbook itself is the ultimate savior for you.

In a Healthy body, stays a healthy mind-

Proper sleeping and eating habits are a pre-requisite to higher concentration ability in a student. Hence, to cut long story short, minimum 6 hours of sleep followed by a perfectly synchronized eating habits are just appropriate enough for a student to study well. Besides, a little walk in the park or some regular stretches once in a day won’t harm you. Meditation has been a great help for avoiding unnecessary pre-exam-jitters and the age old exercise of ‘breathe in-hold-breathe out’ is one of the many ways to calm the nerves.

Classroom diaries-

In order to avoid the unnecessary chaotic running around the teachers before exams, one must be attentive enough throughout the curriculum so as to keep note of whatever the teacher has said all throughout. Making sticky notes while attending classes proves to be of great help during revision time. This way, a student can pick out the problem areas and refer to the books for upcoming exams.

Above all, more than anything else, exams mustn’t be confused with the sole career builders. However, these prove to be a perfect yardstick for deciding the future course of action in one’s career.

Online Test Series for Engineering Exams!

Online Test Series

 

We will give you 5 reasons why Online Test series is ‘the thing’ you shouldn’t miss if you are preparing for any competitive exam or much less an engineering such as JEE main, JEE main advanced or medical entrance test.

  1. Ease of Access-

Once you are finished doing the syllabus, the first thing that comes to mind is to get a yardstick to gauge your preparation skills. While there are many sample papers, mock tests or solved papers of previous years available in the market, there is still one option which can surpass all such options and that is, online test series. With the accessibility so quick, a student would prefer online test series over the ‘old-school’ sample papers practicing notion. These test series are available at various online bookstores which provide the comforts of buying them online and be practiced to the heart’s content. All one needs is to click and buy the same from the prominent bookstores.

  1. Instant Result-

As if the amount of time consumed in solving the questions isn’t enough that one needs some more to cross-check the answers. Yes. The sad part about sample papers is that they necessarily do not come with solved answers or evaluate your performance in a particular test. However, with online test series, the problem is partly solved as by the time you are done with the tests, the result pops out immediately, giving you a sigh of relief over not having to go through the solutions and see results.

  1. Constructive Feedback-

One of the many perks of having your own online test series is that you get a worthy feedback of your performance where the weak areas are highlighted so that one can get a fair idea of the overall performance. Online test series come with a constructive feedback mechanism which helps a student to quite a great extent while preparing for exams.

  1. Mecca for engineering and medical exam aspirants-

The amount of practice and hard work one applies while preparing for engineering and medical exams in India is quite evident from the fact that success rate in such exams is very low thus making them quite competitive. All this tension builds up and at a point when students require quick ‘action-reaction’, sample papers provide too little a help as compared to the online test series where quick results are followed by quicker improvements.

  1. Because it improves the success rate-

At the end of it, what is required the most is the conviction to succeed and to be able to succeed, one must work out how to build steps for it. One of the many steps to success is the improvement strategy which comes with the right study material and online test series suffices the requirement. It not only spotlights weaker areas but also causes a tremendous improvement in scores by 15 to 20% which is why Online test series is advised to all competitive and entrance exams aspirants.

JEE Main Advanced Engineering Examinations 2014

jee-main-advanced-exam-2014

Joint entrance examination or JEE is one of the prestigious examinations in India where 1/4rth of the population has religiously applied for it ever since the concept of JEE mains and advanced started, back in 2012. JEE main 2014 and JEE advanced 2014 both have seen a staggering amounts of applications which have shrunk to a limited 10000 seats in IITs and other JEE-affiliated institutes across the nation. While clearing JEE mains 2014 proves to be a litmus test for furthering the exam level to JEE advanced 2014, many students, who could clear JEE mains 2014 also managed to get into NITs and several state funded engineering institutes.

As Indians obsession with engineering has been soaring without any decline, a few JEE main advanced 2014 aspirants faced an audacity to diverge from the engineering hokum to seek anything but engineering. The stats are evidently shocking to describe how every 6th engineering degree holder is unemployable. This is what engineering fuss has come to, where engineering students have started to realize the overhyped status of engineering.

JEE main and advanced 2014 received a no. of applications from students across the country where only a few could make it to the end. Keeping preparation and coaching aside, the conviction that a student holds in pursuing engineering as a career also holds relevance. JEE main advanced 2014 might come off as a big thing for any JEE aspirant though getting into it isn’t so easy. Above all, what matters most is the willingness to take up engineering as a preference rather than taking it up out of burden.

Passage to IITs become easier with class XII cut-off 75%

iit news, iit latest updates, iit jee news, iit jee main news, iit 2015

 

Students seeking admissions to the IITs are going to be in for a good surprise. The Indian Institute of Technology has come up with making the basic criterion for admission easier and clearer by declaring that the cut-off for students who clear the IIT-JEE (Advanced) will be 75% in the class 12 board examinations or a top 20 percentile, whichever is lower.

 

Till now, the students had to secure an undisclosed target to be within the top 20 percentile to be eligible for the admission. The IIT council announced the decision at its 48th meeting in Chennai. The council further deliberated that candidates in the general, OBC-NCL (non-creamy layer) categories should score 75% in the class XII exam and SC/STs and persons with disability should score 70%.

SC/ST Education Before and Now

scheduled casts Education

 

The scheduled casts and scheduled tribes are the historically deprived sections of Indian society. Nowadays Scheduled casts are also referred to as Dalits. According to the census of 2001 the Scheduled Casts are 16.6% and Scheduled tribes are 8.6% in India. Total 1,108 casts and 744 tribes’ s are included in the First Schedule in the 1950 order of the Indian Constitution.

Since independence the Scheduled casts and scheduled tribes were given reservation for their holistic development. The Scheduled casts and Scheduled tribes have been lagging behind in all walks of life including education, employment and standard of living. It has been noticed that the reservation being given to the Scheduled casts and Scheduled tribes has actually helped them in elevating their standards.

It has been reported that the crude rate of literacy in Scheduled casts has increased from 10.27% in 1961 to 45.20% in 2001 registering a growth of 34.9% points in last 40 years. The crude literacy rate of Scheduled tribes was 8.53% in 1961 which increased to 38.41% in 2001 registering a growth of 29.88% points in last 40 years. The main reason for educational backwardness of the SCs/STs is social and economic poverty. The average literacy rate of total males and females of India is 62.24% and 45.14% respectively and the total average rate of literacy is 54.51% if we see the condition of Scheduled casts the literacy rate of their males is 55.10% and of females is 34.62% and the total literacy rate amongst them is 45.20% and amongst scheduled tribes the total literacy rate of their males is 48.23% and of females is 28.36% their crude literacy rate stands at 38.41% of their population.

There has been a significant rise in the literacy rates of both the SCs and STs. It has also been noticed that the dropout rate from class I to V had decreased to 1.3% in SCs and 5.2% in STs. Furthermore, the dropout rate from class I to VIII dropped by 4.6% in SCs and 6.5% in STs. It is reported that about 25% of the ST students had their middle school education in Hindi, 40% of the students had their education in regional languages. The proportion of SCs and STs Learning in their regional languages is more than the general category students, while it is found that the General category students have a higher proportion in institution of English medium. It was also found that the proportion of SCs and STs availing coaching for admissions is much lesser than the general category students. We know that the reservation in Jobs and in education has helped the deprived classes but to bring them to main stream more needs to be done.

Negative and Positive Point of online IBPS Exams

Online IBPS Exams

Finally IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) free CEW (Common written exam) for IBPS Clerk –II achievement Project 2014-2015. However there’s a giant confusion as a result of IBPS set to require on-line examination for the post in selected Centers altogether over Asian nation.

Amazing Power of Super Conscious Mind

superconscious-mind

 

The beauty of your super conscious mind lies in the application toward your goals.

You have it. I have it. Everyone you know has it. What is it? It’s this infinite, universal, subconscious and powerful gift we’re blessed with. Most experts call it the “super-subconscious mind,” (higher level of thinking) although whatever you choose to call it, it is as available to you at this very instant as it has been to anyone, anywhere!

The origin of all creativity comes from the super conscious mind. The super conscious mind was used by all of the great inventors, writers, artists, business people, scientists and composers on a regular basis.

Michael Angelo was known to have said that he would see his completed sculpture in the block of marble before he began chiseling away at it. He simply needed to chip around his vision.

The beauty of your super conscious mind lies in the application toward your goals. When you are striving and working toward a goal of your own choosing, your super conscious mind will provide you the continuous flow of ideas and positive energy to help you move closer to your goal. KEY POINT: Your super conscious mind functions best when you have a confident and calm mindset. Your subconscious mind automatically and continually solves every problem on the way to your goal as long as your goal is clear, concise and you believe in it fully.

REMEMBER THIS: When you get a hunch or an inspiration about the direction of your goal you must act on it immediately. This is when your super conscious mind is speaking to you, based on the time-dated material you entered at an earlier time. You see, when you adopt an attitude of calmness and confidence about your goals everything that happens to you can only bring you closer to your goal, your dream!

The truth is, “You become what you think.” Emerson wrote, “A person becomes what he thinks about most of the time.” KEY POINT: Successful people think and talk about what they want. Unsuccessful people talk about what they don’t want. The super conscious mind is so powerful that it is working all the time and you will get what you think about most of the time!!

 “Whether you think you can do something or think you can’t, you’re right!”

Cornell Notes

Cornell Notes

 

Cornell Notes is a system of making and using notes that promotes active learning. Before the lecture (or reading) you set up your notebook pages with a vertical line dividing the page roughly 1/4 (left) and 3/4 right. The wider right side is used to make notes, draw graphs and record the important information from the lecture or reading. It’s a good idea to leave a line or two between each major note or piece of information. The left column is used to write questions and keywords that relate to the information recorded on the right. Each major point on the right ought to have a question or keyword on the left.

Depending on the speed of the professor and the amount of information that needs recording in the right column, you may or may not have time to write the questions and keywords in the left column. If you do, that’s great. If you don’t, then you should fill in the left column as soon as possible, and for sure before the end of the day. The questions and keywords serve an important function. You will be using these to remember the key points in the right column during several practice sessions.

Once you have the questions and keywords in the left column, you are ready to do a practice session. Use a blank sheet of paper to cover the right column. Now, without peeking, look at the questions and keywords on the left and try to remember the information on the right. Say the answers to yourself, or write them down on the blank sheet. Don’t just say to yourself, “I know that…” You want to be able to repeat or paraphrase the information on the right with good accuracy. If it is information that needs to be perfect (e.g., a formula), then that is what you want. However, if it is information that is more general, then an accurate paraphrase is probably better. Your first practice session should be as soon as possible, ideally right after class if you have a spare period, or in your first break. If you wait too long, you will find that you can’t remember much of the information in the right column. If that’s the case, then you waited too long. As you practice, Keep Score. If you remembered the information accurately and without peeking, then give yourself a tick under the question or keyword on the left. If you had to peek or didn’t remember the information very well, give yourself an “X.”

This would help to memorize better and find your loopholes easily.

Where to Study

Where to Study

 

You may think that the physical condition of work such as the room furniture, lighting and ventilation are relatively unimportant. They do affect your power to concentrate and work effectively. Research shows that students who habitually work in libraries do better than those who do not. The sight of others working simultaneously gives encouragement to work harder. Your behavior is disciplined and distraction from other sources remains minimal. Keep following things in mind while planning where to study-

  • Does your study area receive adequate light? Incorrect placement of the light source, excessive and insufficient light can cause eye strain.

 

  • Does your study area receive adequate ventilation? Lack of circulating air can make you sleepy. In a room where there is inadequate circulation, the concentration of carbon dioxide increases. As a result, the brain does not receive a sufficient supply of oxygen and one tends to feel sleepy. Inadequate oxygen also causes poor concentration.

 

  • Does your study area offer space and comfort? You need a clear desk for writing and a comfortable chair for reading. Don’t get too comfortable. While studying, sit in an upright position. Do not slouch over your books while reading or writing. It would be ideal to have a small shelf within arm’s reach, from your study table.

 

  • Is there a lot of clutter on your study table? Keep your workspace neat. In addition, keep relevant stationary, such as paper and pen, at hand so that you don’t have to get up every five minutes to look for something. Ensure that you have sufficient space while writing.

 

  • Are there too many distractions? Loud music, the blaring TV and people talking loudly can distract you. Control the noise level around your study area. Do friends distract you easily? Learn to say ‘no’ to your friends. However, if you cannot say ‘no’ easily, you can try hiding from them. Remember, hiding is not a permanent solution and is not recommended as a normal practice. Don’t answer phone calls while studying, most calls can wait.

Implementing Changes in Teaching Courses

teaching skills development

Ministry of Human Resource Development has been contemplating over implementing changes in BEd and MEd courses in India and extending the otherwise 1 year duration to 2 years for the better training of teachers-to-be of the country.

Ministry of Human Resource Development Headed by Smriti Irani reached out to several state universities along with the central ones to focus on the inadequacies of the aforementioned courses and sought a conclusion of extending the courses to make them at par with the other post-graduate courses, which take a time of 2 years to get away with.

In a way, teacher is the guiding-force behind a country’s development and necessary steps should be taken for the proper training courses of teachers, be it for higher or higher-secondary levels or elementary levels, each holds a definitive significance as an adequate amount of time spent into the training of teachers bears a fruitful outcome.

It was also stressed that training of teachers in Information and Communication Technology is necessary as it becomes imperative for a teacher to know things well so as to give proper teaching on such subject.

Extention of a year in BEd and MEd courses is most likely to be implemented in the upcoming academic year of 2015-16 and various committees working on Indian Education system have also brought light into bringing separate educational programmes in Science, Humanities and social sciences.

Ever Since Mr. Narendra Modi emphasized the value of teaching in his Teachers Day interaction with teachers nationwide, the Ministry of Human Resource Development has given a thought to the teachers training programmes and laid down the necessary amendments which will not only help teachers to get better training but also create an ample provision for them to learn good and educate better.

Political Spat over Education in Telangana

Telangana Education-Policy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What seemed to be a settling decision for Telangana and Andhra Pradesh has now, seemed to have taken a new political twist. From now onwards, telangana schools will be debarred from getting any form of education about the history and culture of Andhra Pradesh.

Telangana’s education minister, Jagadish Reddy has confirmed to it that a revision of the curriculum including the literature of Andhra Pradesh shall be replaced by Telangana-centric culture and study.

What seems to be a radical political intervention in education system of Telangana has nothing to do with the fact that education promotes secularism, as in this case, it’s pretty much evident how politics and subsequently, the political parties are concerned in regional agenda and the country as a whole isn’t what comes anwhere close to it.

The next academic curriculum of Telangana will have the entire history and culture of Andhra Pradesh scrapped and students shall begin to learn more about the Telangana-based study in their new curriculum. The existing literature on history and culture of Andhra Pradesh will be replaced by Telangana’s creation.

It is to be seen how well and to how much extent do the implications of such shift last. The bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh into Seemandhra and Telangana might come with many reasons but the political impositions on academic curriculum of any state are a questionable entity.

Mobile phones and tablets help in Education

As the population is growing day by day so is the use of sophisticated devices like Mobile phones and Tablets. It is estimated that there are about 4.5 billion users of mobile phones in the world It is not surprising that India is the second biggest user of Mobile phones in the world. Earlier Mobile phones were used only for telecommunication purpose, for making & receiving calls and sending text messages but after the arrival of smart phones the utility of the mobile phones has increased many folds.

Education mobile for kids
Education mobile for kids

There are various applications available for a small  amount and even for free on the app stores. As the  use and competition in the telecommunication  market has increased with many operators  competing  for larger market share in Indian market  like Vodafone, Airtel, Idea, Uninor, Reliance, Tata  DoCoMo, BSNL, Aircel MTNL and many more have  launched enticing internet schemes on very low  prices. As the use has increased and reached even  the youngsters many education companies have  developed applications for mobile phone and tablet  users, these applications offer books to be read in  the form of epub and pdf, one most famous example  is Amazon Kindle (it is a series of e-book readers  designed and marketed by Amazon.com), it allows  its users to read books, magazines, news papers  and a lot of content which is in digital format. Some education companies have also developed educational games and even test series for Mobile phone and tablet users running on Android, IOS and Windows platform like Magic Software Pvt Ltd, Educator and Blackboard etc, these applications allow publishers, teachers and Administrators of the applications to devise a course, content, assignments, homework and assessments. With a click they can easily assign the books to be read, tests and assessments to be taken and homework to be submitted. All this could easily be submitted by the students online through the use of tablets and smart phones, some companies also present detailed analysis reports of the tests and assessments taken by the students. Many school, institutions have also taken the decision to go digital and they are openly allowing their students to carry tablets and smart phones. According to the principal Mr. Arvind K Chalsani, senior school, Pathways World, “Primary school students are given iPads by the school to encourage their research skills at an early stage during their IT classes…” This trend is already very common in USA and other European countries and we are seeing this flourishing in India also now days in India especially in and around metro cities. Data in form of not only text but, audio files, images and videos help students to understand the concepts much better. Even the parents get a chance to catch-up with the current technology.

Islamic Education

Islamic Education

 

The word Islamic education is often confounded with Muslim education but as per my knowledge these are two different things. Islamic education is dissemination of knowledge pertaining to Islam whether given to a Muslim or a non-Muslim. Though Islamic education is not a new field of study in the world but is quite common in conservative countries like Kingdome of Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Algeria and Egypt, sending children to Islamic education centers is very common in these countries. As India and Pakistan share a common heritage so the schools of thought present in both the countries are approximately the same.

Afghanistan, India and Pakistan are dominated by the Hanafi school of thought, though other schools are also present like Shafai and Ahle-Hadith, it has been noticed that the influence of Ahle-Hadith is growing fast in India and Pakistan and followers of Maliki and Humbali schools of thought are very scarce in the Indian subcontinent, but they form a majority in Egypt and Kingdome of Saudi Arabia. In India the most common Islamic education centers are the Madarasas, which cater to basic Nazarah of the Quran(reading from the Holy-Book ), Hafidha (memorization of the whole Quran by heart) and Alimah (the scholar of Quran and Ahadiths), ‘Ahadith’ are the documents which contain teachings, deeds and sayings of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).

The crux of Islamic Education is Monotheism and prophet-hood of Muhammad son of Abdullah born in 570 C.E . Muhammad lived in present Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 570 C.E to 632 C.E. He migrated from Mecca (his birth place) to Yathrib (also known as Madina) in 622 C.E. This migration is known as ‘Hijra’ (migration). Monotheism in Islam refers to existence of only One GOD who alone is worthy of worship. Surah Ikhlaas (a chapter number 112 from Quran) says “Say: He is Allah, the One and Only! Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him.” . There are courses in Islamic Studies in Universities in India like Jamia Millia Islamia which is a central university in New Delhi, Aligarh Muslim University in Agra and Osmania University in Hyderabad, Kashmir University in Srinagar, Jamia Hamdard University in New Delhi.

Apart from the Government institutions there are highly renowned privately owned institutions like ‘Darul uloom’ Deoband, U.P. Nawadtul Ulama, in Lucknow U.P. But mostly the Islamic Education in India is imparted by local madrasas (schools) which do not have any affiliation with any institution or Government Universities. In West Bengal (state of Union of India) there is special ‘Minority Affairs and Madrasah Education Department’.

Although Biggest Islamic Institution in the World is Al-Azhar Islamic University situated in Cairo, Egypt, while India has pride of having world’s second biggest Institution called “ Deoband Darul Uloom” in U.P (state of union of India).

Of Careers and Jobs

The voyage to a never ending struggle to get the right career followed by a job that you would love to wake up for every morning starts pretty much sooner than you would realize. Yes, you heard it right. A child is born into this world only to get into the ‘rat race’ of seeking a Job and Career for about 30 percent of his/her life and the rest depends on how well he/she utilized that 30 percent. Well it’s never been easy to get a five-figure-pay and knowing how to get it in the first place. There’s always some place for different careers you want to pursue in life. You could be an artist and roam in the streets of Paris looking for Inspiration or be an astronaut (most likely if you are a five year old!) there are many career choices you could pick for life though most of the people are stuck in the dilemma of what their parents want them to be and then what they themselves want to be.

Lucky are those who are headstrong enough to decide their career choices without anyone poking their nose into it. Once you are done with deciding your prospective career choices and justifying your cause to your ‘Engineer/doctor/government job seeking parents’, 50 percent of your work is done.

Now what comes after is the spirit and ambition to turn your goals into possible career and get a job that you love. India is one such country where every single parent seeks their child’s career into the shrines of ultimate god of education, which is Science and Engineering. Anything less than that seems like a matter of agony to them.

Engineering and medical colleges (with a special mention of IIT and AIIMS here) are the education Mecca to all engineering and medical students. Students aspiring to get into such colleges not only burn their midnight oil but also their social life down to its core only to get a seat there and may be a job somewhere after that. But who knows whether one would get their best job of life just because they got into one of the reputed colleges of India? What if it never worked? What if. These two words are sufficient enough to send chills down your spine. What if this is not what I had wanted in life is what most people in their late twenties ask to themselves, majorly because they had listened to what their parents/relatives/teachers/society wanted them to be.

Well, a few free souls are also out there who had made certain decisions about their lives and careers and whether they failed or not are not what would concern them. At least they listened to their inner voice and that’s what is important to avoid the ‘rat-race’ notion. Finding your own golden spot might take time but once you discover it, there is no stopping you.

Pros & Cons of Group Study

Grouping Study

Learning in a group is much faster and effective. Try to form a group of your classmates who have the same goals as you have and you are equally willing to fulfill them. Share your knowledge and tricks with them and benefit yourselves from the learning of your classmates.

Some of the study techniques you can adopt in group learning are using revision cards with a partner or draw a diagram, make up a spider or patterned note card(s) or construct some linear key word notes.

Revise the card(s) for 15 or 20 minutes (at most). Re-check that you understand and can recall all of the card(s) contents.

Teach your partner about the topic, allowing – and encouraging – questions about the topic. When a point is unclear, stop and explain it. Work through the topic until you both have completed it to your satisfaction or have agreed to meet again to continue.

You can use one of your friends to revise with, by dividing up topics, revising them individually, and then meeting to discuss them.

Use your partner to fire questions. Work for a set period in your work room for half to 1 hour. Then ask your partner to fire questions at you about the topic. It will obviously help if the partner had some knowledge about the topic or a clear indication of what to ask. However, what you are seeking from this exercise is flexibility and alertness and surprise questions and fresh angles are a bonus from this method.

Group learning can accelerate your learning because-

  • Groups not only make suggestions but are also quicker to reject incorrect suggestions.
  • They reject the incorrect ideas, which escape the notice of individuals, working alone.
  • Since by nature people are quicker to see flaws in others, group study proves more useful than individual study.

Remember explaining a point to someone else makes it clearer to you and at times also gives you a fresh point of view.

Of sleeping

Of Sleeping

Sleep is essential. During sleep, your body recuperates (repairs itself). You also dream while sleeping. Many scientists say that it is during dreams that the whole day’s memory is recognized in the brain.

The time a person requires to sleep varies. Some people require more than 8 to 10 hours of sleep while others may need just 5 or 6 hours. Sleeping between 4 to 10 hours is normal. Most people sleep between 6 to 8 hours a day.

While too little sleep may make you feel restless, too much sleep can make you feel lazy. If you sleep well, you will feel energized on waking up and ready for a new day.

You can do the following to get good sleep:

  • Keep your room quiet and dark. If you do not have a separate room, you may not be able to do this. At least, you can request the other members of your family to try to be quiet.
  • Eat less of sugar, salt, fats (oils and ghee), difficult-to-digest foods, especially at night.
  • Take time to slow down. If you are doing something very active and suddenly you go to bed, you may not get sleep. So spend the last hour or so doing relatively calm activities.
  • Try to go to bed at the same time every night.

How do you know that the amount of sleep that you got is sufficient?

If after eight hour of sleep, you still feel drowsy, this means that you need more sleep. Once you have understood the exact amount of sleep that you need, ensure that you get it – at any cost. The cost of lack of sleep, outweighs any possible benefits (such as more time to study etc). If your answer to any one of the following is a yes, you may be suffering from lack of complete sleep.

  1. You feel drowsy during the day.
  2. When you are bored, you got to sleep
  3. You feel tired most of the time
  4. You cannot concentrate most of the time
  5. You feel anxious most of the time
  6. You don’t feel alert
  7. Low energy levels during the day.

Remember that sleep is a necessary ingredient for almost all mental faculties including:

  1. Memory
  2. Creativity
  3. Problem solving skills
  4. Retention
  5. Sleep during day time also

Sleeping for a little while (half an hour to over one hour) during day time is of great value. An afternoon nap means two fresh mornings in 24 hours. After you have studied for 5-6 hours, the brain is swimming with facts, a nap of 30-45 minutes is required to recharge the brain. For example, you can sleep when you come back from school. This will make you fresh again. So, you can study more efficiently in evening and night.

Know More about Central Teaching Eligibility Test (CTET)

Central Teaching Eligibility Test (CTET)

 

India is in a state of perpetual need for better education which is directly proportional to the adequate number of teachers assigned to the schools across the country. The prospect to provide each child with adequate education might seem encouraging. However, the real status of education evokes many doubts. Presently, India has proportionately more children than teachers can handle which has led to a severe decline in quality of education. This gap between availability and subsequent requirement has to be bridged by appointing more teachers. The Central Teaching Eligibility Test or CTET is an entrance exam conducted on behalf of Central Board of Secondary Education to appoint teachers to government schools of India such as Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS), Tibetan schools, NVS and a few more. Conducted by both Central and State Government in India, CTET is mandatory for getting teaching jobs in government schools from class 1 to class 8.

Initially, Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) was introduced by the Government of India in the year 2011, with an initiative to raise the standards of teaching. The teachers already working in schools were given two years time to clear this exam. Further, the ministry of Human Resource and Development assigned this responsibility of conducting CTET to Central Board of Secondary education. Tests have been conducted by CBSE since then.

The syllabus of CTET depends on two papers: Paper 1 and Paper 2. Paper 1 is meant for teachers opting for Classes 1-5 and Paper 2, for Classes 6- 8. Paper 1 is relatively easier, which comprises Child Development & Pedagogy, Language 1 &2, mathematics and Environmental Studies. Paper 2 consists of Child Development & pedagogy, Language 1 & 2, Mathematics and Science/Social Studies & Social Science

The key to crack CTET is to get right kind of books and prepare from them. Many books are available in the market so that preparation can be done in the best way possible. But, the position which CTET seeks supposedly contributes a lot to India’s growth in Education sector. It’s a big responsibility to be a mentor of many children at one time and to ensure that each child gets to utilize the best in him/her becomes the crux of every effort put together.

Supreme Court : 20 Lakh Compensation to 21 denied MBBS Students

supreme court, supreme court ruled out, supreme courts decision

“After being denied the admissions to medical colleges of India in the year 2012, the 21students at a huge loss were granted a compensation of 21 lakhs” by the Supreme Court a few days ago.

However, no amount of money can be compensated for such huge academic loss, though students have managed to bring this issue to light. A severe case of indifference on part of the medical colleges who have been charged with such alleged malpractices must be taken seriously by the Supreme Court as it has led to jeopardy of the academic career of many students.

Despite of having the requisite scores, students were denied admissions to a few medical colleges. The students approached the Bombay high court and subsequently the Supreme Court after which, upon taking the necessary decisions, the Supreme Court asked the State Court to pay the compensation after it failed to take the immediate action on students’ complaints.

The students have definitely lost the time and opportunity to pursue MBBS and this has led to serious repercussions for their career. MBBS students face a hard time preparing for the Medical entrance exams and such inadequacies on part of Medical colleges are entirely intolerable.

While MBBS students are compensated for the insufficiency caused by government and medical colleges, the answer to such malpractices looms large for various MBBS students.

The medical colleges are answerable to the Supreme Court for flouting the rules and regulations on their own without considering the careers of the MBBS students who were denied admissions for no rhyme or reason.

DU School of Open Learning (SOL) will Adopt Flipped Classroom Method

sol, open learning, du sol, du

Given the time and command internet has taken in everyone’s life these days, academic institutions are leaving no stones unturned to implement internet in their academic curriculum. The objective shall always be directed towards making learning effective in as many ways as possible and one of the many ways to do that is to bring Internet as the educating medium for students who apply for School of Open Learning in University of Delhi.

Delhi University has recently come up with the ‘Flipped Classroom Technology’ for SOL students to outreach more and more students and give them a better access to learning. ‘Flipped Classroom Technology’ was originated with an idea of ‘blended learning’ where online lectures can be accessed at home with ease and sometimes, classroom teaching is facilitated with online teaching so that learning broadens its scope.

Flipped Classroom method can help students who have got their admissions in SOL in DelhiUniversity as they can easily access lectures sitting at home. The students often find it hectic to take time out of their jobs to attend classes in centers provide by Delhi University. Though after this initiative, Students can heave a sigh of relief where they can easily get the most of it by sitting at home. Delhi University has come up with a great initiative and surely this might take a load off from many students who fail to attend classes.

‘Flipped Classroom Technology’ is a trending phenomenon resulting out of growing needs to fulfill teaching and learning responsibilities effectively. Many students in west take up courses online and get a degree for a short term course. With the inclusion of this idea, Delhi University might provide great help to students who are willing to rather study at home than reaching centers. It is yet to see if Delhi University would be able to live up to the expectations.

Work for the development of villages said by Smriti Irani to higher educational institutions

Work for development, development of villages, higher education institutes, Smriti Irani

Our current government is in full swing whether it’s Narendra Modi’s Teachers Day-Cum-Guru Utsav speech or our current minister of Human Resource Development, Smriti Irani’s gusto for linking educational Institutes and Rural areas of India, for the betterment of villages. What seems to be a generous motive to establish a strong foundation in Rural India might be traced from ‘Swades-Inspired’ initiative which seeks the abroad-going minds to come back in India and work towards creating the higher secondary education institutes in rural areas.

Smriti Irani’s call for a radical change in rural educational system lies firmly in the hands of the best technical institutions of India including IIT and NIT, to name a few. The ministry expects that the best technical institutions connect with rural set up of India and bring about educational opportunities within the same.

All centrally-funded institutions in India are encouraged to inculcate the ‘Rural development programme’ so that rural areas get the best utilization. This is one of the most significant factors which require a disciplined execution.

Naming it ‘Aadarsh Gram’ programme, the ministry of HRD is focusing on manifesting IITs and NITs research inputs into a better implementation which can be directed at rural development programmes and especially higher secondary education institutes.

Developing links with rural India will only serve job opportunities to young and brilliant minds but also cater to the inadequacies of rural educational set up.

Smriti Irani also hinted at the set up of a ‘cell’ especially to answer the queries related to linkage between technical institutions and rural areas. This would strengthen the plans of making the idea of ‘Aadarsh Gram’ a success.

Implementation of this programme will require a nod of consent from various technical institutions from across India thus the ministry of HRD seeks to promote this propaganda for the effevtive growth of rural areas.

International literacy day on September 8

To become literate, one must acknowledge the power of literacy. Keeping that in mind, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization better known as UNESCO decided to celebrate literacy as International Literacy Day which falls on September 8 every year. UNESCO wanted to spread the awareness of literacy amongst the communities with a single idea of promoting education worldwide. While there is a significant rise in education awareness which developed over the years and with passing time, it’s only getting higher. Though, still there are many who are devoid of access to education owing to many reasons, one of which is poverty. Statistically, Women are relatively more illiterate as compared to the other gender.

UNESCO surveyed and found that South and East Asia suffers from illiteracy more than any other continent does. Keeping such statistics in mind, UNESCO keeps coming up with several campaigns to promote education every year on International Literacy Day. Each year, UNESCO comes up with the measures which have direct effect over education and the lack of it as well. Many a times, the issue of poverty has been taken up as the most severe form of barrier for education. Apart from this, Prejudice against women, gender inequality and many related factors arise.

India has been quite active in promoting literacy amongst Indians and to achieve a status of overall literacy or much less a process of achieving it, the ministry of Human Resource Management organizes various schemes and programmes partaking the poverty and illiteracy so as to reach a point where people get sufficient amount of literacy individually. This year, the ministry of HRD is organizing KRITI exhibition 2014 so as to showcase the products and working of people from Jan Shikshan Sansthan, an NGO which provides vocational training to non-literates and drop-outs from schools and colleges.

A better understanding of IIT and PMT Foundation

IIT-JEE Foundation

 

IIT & PMT Foundation: stepping stones to a career

The IIT Foundation makes sure that your attempts at IIT do not go in vain, which has limited the amount of attempt for IIT-JEE. Students only get two chances that is to say one right after their class XII board exams and the second immediately in the following year. Also, the exam prototype has been changed in such a way, so as to favour students who are studying in school as well as preparing for the IIT-JEE. Like –wise as for PMT foundation, Medical Entrance Exams are the stepping stones to a career which is bright and rewarding for the students interested in Medical studies. Serving humanity is the essence of medical practices and many meritorious students want to take up medical sciences to surge forward in their illustrious career. Now dreaming is one thing and turning dreams into reality is an altogether different proposition.

Medical practices demand a lot of calculated studying and strenuous efforts. It can be safely said that without proper guidance for a length of time, cracking Medical Entrance Exams is next to impossible. So coaching for medical entrance exams is of paramount importance. In India, there are a number of institutes offering qualitative coaching for medical entrance exams. Now in case you are aspiring to set your firm footholds in the medical sector, it is always a good idea to do a bit of research over the Internet to find the ideal coaching centres or online tutorial for medical entrance exams giving coaching for medical entrance exams.

It gives genuine students that additional lead in terms of more periods to grow better perception of the ideas by the time they reach Class XI. They maintain school syllabus as foundation and promote upgrading the leaner’s understanding to convene the needs of this competitive assessment. They are also developing in a mode, so as to expand point of reference as well as encourage students to surpass in competitive exams. A good IIT Foundation & PMT Foundation course ought to endow students with a inclusive perception of the essential concepts, instruct them the function of these conceptions, and help them perfect their analytical skills.

Feat the accurate base at the right period is one of the most significant aspects for the accomplishment of any student in exams as well as in life. IIT Foundation & PMT Foundation is designed at training students from Class VIII, IX or X, who aspire to sit for Engineering/Medical Entrance exams. Earnest students aspiring for success in competitive examinations and a first-rate rank in IIT understand the importance of preliminary early with their measures. As the JEE becomes more competitive by the year, it is necessary to build a strong fundamentals base as early as possible.

Political-Apolitical: Narendra Modi on Teachers Day

While on this Teachers Day, as young India gears up to listen to Narendra Modi’s speech to Teachers and Students alike, several political parties have found this nothing but a political stint to propagate the ruling party’s agenda.

What so ever has been said and written about it, some argue over the fact that the essence of Teachers Day lies in a teacher itself and thus the inclusion of students to hear the Prime minister’s speech today(voluntarily or otherwise) seems to be drawn from autocracy.

The teachers and students are supposed to listen to the Prime Minister’s call today, which will be to be telecast on Doordarshan Live from 2:30 PM to 4:45 PM. What concerns the mass is whether the idea of making students listen to what the Prime Minister thinks is necessary. It has certainly drawn too much attention in a past few days and especially from the opposition parties though it might be nothing but just a healthy form of interaction with the young students and teachers.

Well, to draw any conclusion on this scenario would be nothing short of a premature judgment. It’s for teachers and students to decide whether this initiative taken by Mr. Prime Minister is worthy enough or not.

Decoding MADamatics

easy methods to solve maths

Except for the 0.0003 percent population on earth, rest of the mankind is as much exasperated with this subject called mathematics as an engineering student is, with his life. Mathematics is one mighty boulder which a student is asked to unwillingly heave for his/her entire school life. And at the end of it, basically, a calculator acts as a saving grace to deal with real-life mathematical situations like groceries and investments. Nevertheless, the expectations from Pythagoras theorem and algebra boil down to dwindling realities where unless you are an astronaut or an engineer, mathematics of this kind is, in no way, applicable in real-life. Yet, it is this subject which causes a radical shift in overall grades causing a student to either leap forward by getting straightaway into IITs of India or seek refuge in private universities.

Well, most of us have our own terribly whiny tales to share when it comes to Mathematics as no other subject has caused collective flunking in every grade as much as this abhorrent subject has. Though some bright kids who have relentlessly outshone the entire class with their extra clean answer sheets and to top it all, even more cleaner marks, would disagree with this fact to their hearts’ content.

There must be that one trump card which solves the affliction of Math Lovers and haters alike, which is why we have assembled a few tricks to help you solve your ‘Mess’amatical problems.

Teacher’s Call-

This is the top most solution to any aggravated mathematical Question/concern. Teachers propagate Mathematical problems and so, naturally, they must provide meaningful answer/s to the mathematical problems. Never hesitate to point your problems and keep on asking until your problem is solved. Somehow, many are too shy to come out with their mathematical problems fearing lashing from teachers, though all such fears must be kept aside and no other human than the one who came up with mathematical concepts in class can make you understand better. Go ahead. Shed your fear. Ask.

Build a solid Foundation-

Mathematics has been a subject which works on cumulative principles. You need to hold a strong base so as to make it easier for other concepts to jam well with the previous ones. As new concepts are built upon previous ones, it becomes necessary to ensure that the basics are well covered.

Practice-

Unlike the subjects which you can pass off easily with rote learning, mathematics is one such practical subject that you must never forget to practice every day. Practice makes a man perfect, though what lessens this age-old adage is the fact that practice should be done every day, and especially when one is talking about mathematics. The more you practice, the better you become in handling Number-logics.

Flowchart-

Yep, you heard it just right. Flowchart is the key to mild satisfaction on exactly what you have achieved, so far, in Maths. Prepare a flowchart of various formulas and locate them as per your grasp on each concept. That is, the ones which are easier to solve can be placed at one place and the intricate ones can be put to another place. This way, you can remind yourself easily about the difficult areas of questions and work on them.

Choose the right study Material-

Along with the usual NCERT books which the school provides, look out for some help materials which have a comprehensive set of questions along with the detailed analysis of concepts. This way, you can work on the loopholes and get the best preparation done from Study Materials.

How to Relax?

One of the most common problems during studies is severe anxiety or nervousness. The result of the exam can totally change your future and so the process of preparing for them can be a stressful experience. Delay in preparation schedule; inability to solve problem or even few hours’ waste of time can lead to anxiety and create stress which can adversely affect your studies, so it is very important to learn how to manage stress or anxiety.

Even famous people do it

Remember that a certain level of anxiety is also good for you to have a faster learning. Remember a certain level of anxiety can enable you to be more alert, attentive and to concentrate more effectively. It can sharpen your exam performance; make you feel more full of energy; cause you to work at the most effective speed and be more attentive to detail. So achieving optimum arousal (anxiety) is the key to success. But the moment the anxiety level becomes higher, it starts disabling the time to take immediate corrective measures.

It is a natural human reaction to worry at times during studies. It is also natural to express an emotional reaction to the ups and downs of tackling tasks: angry or frustrated at one time, exhilarated at others. The ideas in this book are intended to help you avoid becoming locked into a state of anxiety, where your interaction with exams, tests and course deadlines (the potential ‘stressors’) result in an unhelpful stress reaction in you. This is the type of anxiety state which feels disabling.

Before we learn how to handle stress & anxiety, let us understand what are the signs and symptoms of stress?

  • Your heart beats at an accelerated rate.
  • Your breathing rate increases.
  • Your body sweats.
  • Your mind becomes agitated and you feel restless.
  • Your stomach feels queasy. In other words you feel butterflies in your stomach.

You can control these problems by training your mind and body to relax on command. In relaxation you are really training to control the functions of your mind.

Relaxation Techniques: You can relax while sitting on a chair, lying on a bed or stretched out on a comfortable spot. To relax focus on your breathing first, close your eyes and listen to the sound as air flows in and out. As you breathe, your belly should be moving in and out. Next, start counting one to ten, on your inhalations and saying to yourself “relax” in your mind. Continue these processes until you feel quiet and your mind is focused and undisturbed by fleeting thoughts. The idea behind counting is to shut your mind from other thoughts and not to be disturbed.

Palming : Close your eyes and keep your open palm pressed against your eyes. Hold this position for 5-10 minutes every day. You will feel the heat being transferred to your eyes. Do this exercise regularly every day or pressing a folded cloth to your mouth, blow air into the cloth so that it becomes warm. Press the cloth against your eyes.

Whenever you are tensed or anxious, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Slowly breathe out. Do this about ten times and watch the difference. This should calm your nerves and reduce your anxiety.

 

Teacher’s Day or Guru Utsav – Potato Potaato

Teacher's

 

News so recent that some of you might not even be aware of it has raised certain political concerns and that is primarily concerned with a day which until now has been celebrated as Teachers Day. The current government led by Mr. Narendra Modi is facing contempt by various regional political parties over his new move of changing the usual ‘Teachers Day’ name to a hindi-fied ‘Guru Utsav’. Well, it might seem to be a little archaic on Mr. Prime Minister’s side, yet some argue that India must maintain its sense of glory by giving it a connotation which adds to the Hindu undertones which is why ‘Guru Utsav’ came up as the ultimate replacement for ‘Teachers Day’.

Let’s take a minute out of our busy lives and contemplate how and to how much extent it has affected the whole idea and sentiments attached to a day which is celebrated with fervor only and only within the schools and nowhere else in India.

The entire Hullabaloo over a mere linguistic shift doesn’t require the outpour of controversy rather it hardly changes the fact that Teachers Day shall remain to be the way it has always been. Teachers Day in schools is marked by a celebration where students clad in a teacher’s attire take the responsibility for a day to teach before the entire class, which has nothing to do with teaching though. The day begins with revering great academician and first Vice president of India, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan followed by speeches given by students on Teachers Day which now, as it seems, will slightly change to ‘Guru Utsav’ titles. Apparently, Mr. Modi has made some arrangements to make himself reach out to all the students of the country while he addresses the younger generation to the deeds and responsibilities of India simultaneously highlighting the idea of ‘Guru Utsav’.

While some non-hindi speaking states are fussing over the ‘Guru Utsav’ cause, there are still many, who advocate the idea of Patriotism through this minute effort which might move mountains to some extent (how, it is yet to be answered) To draw conclusions on the fact that ‘Guru Utsav’ will bring radical changes in the country and Teachers Day celebration is merely a political stint where individuals, especially students shall continue to celebrate it the way it has always been celebrated.

Adios.

Preparing Your Child for Academic Success

Books for Children

 

A child needs guidance in every aspect of his life, and each child has a different way of being motivated. Education for Kids, and such resources are mandatory for parents wanting to help jump start their child’s education. The Various educational kits with informative Books for Kids offers everyday opportunities to enrich your child’s learning in several areas (fine motor skills, language acquisition, and mathematics).
There are several good ways to help children discover their gifts, talking with children about their interests. Giving children feedback on things they do especially well, Giving children opportunities to explore their interests through projects. Consider how well you are doing the above with each child. Making plans to do more in areas of need. Weaknesses you can even see strengthen. The stubborn child can be seen as having strong character. The worrier can be seen as sensitive.

Narendra Modi – Man of the Indian Politics 2014

prime minister of india

 

The Current Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi has become the most popular Politician of India via his Social networking and aggressive campaigning with the backing of Gujarat Model he had pursued for more than 10 years in Gujarat. With chances of winning so high, he led himself through all the ups and downs to the election program only to eventually be crowned with glory and honor of becoming the Prime Minister of the country.

Narendra Modi’s Journey throughout his political career became the top story of many News Channels not only before the election program but also after the results were declared. After successfully accomplishing and executing the development targets in Gujarat during his tenure as its Chief Minister, Narendra Modi went a step further by contesting as Prime Ministerial candidate in General elections 2014, from Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).Ultimately, he directed the BJP-led NDA to a decisive victory in the general elections in which the ruling Indian National Congress suffered its worst defeat in the history of INC. BJP won a whooping 282 seats in General elections 2014, and a major contribution into all this is attributed to Narendra Modi and his credibility. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that BJP’s massive victory has a lot to do with Narendra Modi’s name.

After being Sworn in as Prime Minister on 26 May 2014 at the Rastrapati Bhavan, Narendra Modi entered into an entity where millions of Indians have their Growth, sustainability and living waiting to be handled well with utmost sincerity and above all, honesty. The upcoming 5 years will prove to be a litmus test for Modi and BJP alike given the exposure and pressure they have faced till now for one thing inter alia others, DEVELOPMENT.

We, as Disha team bring you similar cases and stories of India which concerns the masses of India. Be it Food security Bill, or Land Acquistion Act, our New Book, 50 cool Stories 300 Hot Issues has covered the most sought after events that took place in the year 2013 and 14. Section 377 and Jan Lokpal Bill have been placed well in the book with almost every possible thing you would want to know about them.

Is IQ important factor in success?

Study Technique

 

IQ or intelligence is a factor, though a minor one. In my opinion IQ acts as a threshold. You just need to have a basic minimum level of IQ to succeed. Interestingly, in a survey it was found out that the average level of IQ of IIT students was 110, compared to the average level of IQ of general population which was 100+. So, there was very little difference between the IQ level of brightest students (IIT Students) and the general public. This implies that the basic determinant of success therefore is not IQ, but other factors.
In the last 3 years after interacting with lot of students I realized that vast majority of students who set off on a course of study are quite capable of successfully completing it. It is practical life circumstances, false beliefs and negative attitudes which, coupled with poor study techniques, may cause the problems – not lack of ability or IQ.

How do some students do well even without studying hard?

I have seen lot of students who have worked very hard but inefficiently and who’s performance in examination has been a surprise & disappointment both to themselves and their teachers, families and friends. At the same time I have also met students who are able to achieve some times satisfactorily and some times excellent results without hardwork. The basic differentiating factor is the study techniques. Hard work should bring achievement but only when coupled with efficient and appropriate study techniques. And that is what this book is all about.
