Myths about entrance exam

  1. Coaching is necessary- It is basically a myth that coaching is necessary to clear the examination which is indeed not true. Coaching do helps but at the end it is all about candidate’s hard work and discipline that make him/her to clear any examination. Hence even without coaching entrance exams can be cleared in India.
  2. Start preparations as soon as possible –There is a false propaganda that hover in our country that candidate’s should start preparations from an early age so to clear exam in due time which is not true. Sometimes it has been seen that student from class 10 itself starts preparing for the college examination which ultimately results in weakening of overall growth of student.

There is a right time for everything and hence students should focus on these examinations at right time only.

  1. Study 15 hours a day-This above statement is a scam. One should not focus on hours of study but the main focus should be quality of study and how much study is been done with complete examination orientation.

A descent and regular 8 hours study without any distraction is more than enough to clear any examination.

  1. Multiple attempts should be avoided-A candidate who is giving multiple is considered to be wasting money and time which is generally not true. Many a time candidate is not satisfy with the rank or not able to clear exam with a very less margin or it was simply a bad day. It a candidate had honestly studied very hard and not satisfy with the exam result giving a another shot is not a bad deal
  2. Close you in a room-It is generally been persuaded that the candidate should close himself in the room and cut of all their interaction and only remain focus towards study. This is wrong, human being is a social animal and this behavior is not to put candidate in any superior position in fact it is going to create unnecessary problems.

Hence a healthy life balance should be maintained at any cost.

  1. On exam will decide your future-Reading this is going to a heart breaking for many but the reality is clearing one competitive exam is not a grantee for a successful life. Life advances each day and with arises new problem. That old phrase “ek bar yeh exam clear ho jae phir sab theak ho jaega” is never going to come. Hence to have a successful life one must perform well in each exam that life will put into us.
  2. Educational background matter-One of the common myth is also students who were good in studies in school should opt for such exams. This is generally not true as indeed having good knowledge of school’s studies is going to handy and is going to provide an edge. But many a time it has been seen and sometimes students who are not good in school studies ends up clearing most difficult exams. Thus ultimately right guidance and students hard work is required.
  3. Family background is important-Sometimes a myth is created that having educated parents is the key to success in educational background of the child. Which is not true again as indeed the former situation helps us create a healthy study environment at home but at the same time it is the child’s will and determination that matters the most.

There are countless example in front of us where the candidates from poor and uneducated family not only cleared the exam but also able to get top ranks.
