Now that AICET is approaching and catering to the fact that it is one of the toughest examinations in India, we bring you some tips that will take you through. Follow these and give yourself the best chance.

1)    Organizing the study space – The study space should be such that keeps all the distractions away. Phone, sleep and computer games shall have no scope of coming in your way.

2)    Take a proper diet – The habit of not eating while studying is quite prevalent amongst students in the current scenario. But the truth is, not only eating but eating the correct things and in correct amount and on right time is the key to maintaining the balance for success. By correct diet, we mean include right amount of proteins, carbs and fats in the diet. Eat lots of vegetables and salad. Never skip your breakfast!

3)    Keep time for revision – Set a date, mark it on your calendar, phone or stick a note to your table. Plan your mind and schedule in such a way that there is enough time left for revision. It is better to have learnt less and remember all of it than to study everything and remember half of it.

4)    Schedule your subjects smartly – Whenever you start schedule of the day, start with the most difficult subject. The mind is fresh and the concentration is at par in the beginning. Do not align one difficult subject after another as it will drain out all the energy at once. Keep the simpler subjects for lazy hours. Always remember, smart work is the key to success.

5)    Prefer short study sessions over long strenuous sessions – The mind has the ability to perform better and efficiently when it is stressed for less amount of time. A study has also confirmed that the brain absorbs information automatically without any efforts while it is on a break. Preferably, while studying specific information such as dates and time, study not more than 20 to 30 minutes.

6)    Neat handwriting and presentation – However, this point is invalid for OMR based examinations but with them too, the habit helps in saving the space for calculations. With subjective examinations, presentation can impress the invigilator and lead to less deduction of marks.

7)    Stay hydrated – A lot of studies have confirmed that dehydration leads to inefficient mind. Keep a water bottle handy, it is one of the most important steps to score well!

If you keep a hold on right strategy and focus while including the above habits in your learning schedule throughout the preparation, success is bound to be with you. Keep on working hard and have confidence!

We wish you all the best for exams!

A rendezvous with Sushant Singh – hosting Savdhaan India

Quote

Hi, I am Anchal Sharma. And here I am with my latest blog.

As part of my internship under the WLCI Media course, I am having a gala time interviewing actors and TV stars. Guess whom did I interview this time? He is none other than actor Sushant Singh, the anchor of Savdhaan India.It is no secret that the rate of criminal activities taking place in India is alarming. Do you know that every year there are around 81,000 kidnapping incidents being reported in India? With such increasing number of cases happening around us, almost every individual has had a brush with some or the other kind of crime and felt unsafe in more than one situations.

We ignore the early signs of a crime, such as eve-teasing and bullying. Should we learn a lesson by recognizing cruelty and taking early action?

My recent interview with actor Sushant Singh of ‘Savdhaan India’ fame puts some light on this aspect. Sushant hosts the TV series broadcasted on Life Ok channel. In this candid conversation, he talks about the positive impact of the series over the viewers. He said that out of the numerous stories shown in the TV series; even if one individual gets the message then the purpose of the show will be met. He is happy and excited about the show as its 5th season is rolling down in a brand new avatar and a fresh tagline to go along.

I was curious to know more about the new season and the actor gladly elaborated the same to me. Sushant said that the show has been successfully running for last four years. it’s main aim is to alert the citizens against crimes and boost their confidence to fight back. The new tagline of Savdhaan India is ‘Darr ke nahi, Datt kar’.

Ignorance is our greatest weakness and we should stay alert round the clock. Sushant voices his reasons for taking up the show, adding “I took up the show (Savdhaan India) as any other work and my only condition was that I can’t do something like India’s Most Wanted, where there is lot of shouting and the show is sensationalized beyond demand.”

He further elaborates on the impact the show has on the society, saying: “People have come up to me and said ‘we’ve learnt a lot from the show’. Our aim is to spread awareness. We always show that the criminal is caught and people win when they fight back.”

Honestly, it was a memorable experience talking with Sushant Singh. Shows such as this actually open up the opportunity to spread awareness against different aspects of crimes, whether they are out in the open or happen behind closed doors. And with this, I urge everyone to be safe and alert.

Thank you WLCI for offering me such a wonderful chance to get in touch with TV personalities. I am really happy to meet them in person and see my name get published in national dailies.
