Holidays that students dread...

Holidays that students dread...

The study holidays for the students of class 10 and 12 are here and they are cramming as much as possible for the board exams that are around the corner. As they brush up on their syllabus, they share their anxiety about the days to come with Metrolife. 

Gredel, who is in class 12 and pursuing commerce, just finished her viva and is preparing for the ISC examinations. 

“I was waiting for them to get over to start revising properly. Until a week ago, we were completing projects. Now, I’ve got a timetable in place and am hoping to follow it strictly,” she says. 

Explaining her plan of action, Gredel says, “I’m following the same routine that I have previously followed. I start studying at 7 am and go on till noon. 

Then I take an hour-long break and sometimes, a short nap. I start studying at 4 pm again and continue till midnight.” 

Ensuring that she studies one subject in the morning and one in the afternoon, Gredel says that she is also taking some time out to practise accounts on a daily basis. And she plays the piano to beat the stress. 

“I’ve also got into the habit of taking a short nap in the afternoons. And since the exams are scheduled to be held in the afternoons, I’m now trying to change my pattern to ensure that I am wide awake at that time.”  Pranav Kamnani, a science student of class 12 who is keen to pursue law, says that he has started studying seriously after his graduation day. 

“This is just the beginning. In the days to come, we will have to take a number of entrance tests. Soon after the board exams, I will be preparing for CLAT,” says Pranav, adding, “We are under a lot of pressure at the moment.” 

Ramya K, who is preparing for the pre-university exams, is a bundle of nerves. “The next couple of months are crucial which is why I’m making use of every minute. I don’t want to regret later that I could have done better. Since I’m a morning person, I study between 4 am and 8 am. I then head to the gym after which I practise mathematics for two hours,” she explains, adding,  “I have chalked out a timetable and am trying to work accordingly.” Vipul Agarwal, who is in class 12 and studying science, wants to pursue environmental science and is currently concentrating on acing his board exams. 

“My future plan of action depends on my percentage in the board exams. My school has a tie-up with a university in Hong Kong and to study there, I have to score above 90 per cent. Our practicals are also scheduled during the study holidays so we have to juggle between that and the preparations,” he says.
