“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”. – Winston Churchill
JEE Main result 2019 for the academic year has been declared and many of you would not have scored well. It is not uncommon to feel de-motivated at this point of time because failures, big or small, affect all of us. But what matters is how we deal with this phase of life, which, in your case is the JEE Main result.
Before anything else, let us first begin with stories of a few great achievers who first failed and then became great examples of success. In fact, most of the successful and famous people in the world have undergone the most failures in life. But what makes them different is how they got back up. They didn’t call it a quit and kept going. This is what you must do if you did not score well in JEE Main 2019.
Let us first talk about Albert Einstein, one of the most brilliant minds to have ever lived. He failed to pass the entrance examination to Swiss Federal Polytechnic School located in Zurich. While doing his graduation, he nearly dropped out during the course of his studies there. He worked as an insurance agent, and also, at the Patent Office. Who would believe it is the story of the same person who did groundbreaking work in Physics and Mathematics.
J.K. Rowling, who gave you one of the most loved series, Harry Potter, faced no less failure. She failed and was rejected at the Oxford University. Later, for a long period of time, she went through a hard phase in personal life due to numerous incidents happening one after another. After she finished the manuscript of Harry Potter, 12 major publishing houses rejected the book, which, was later published by a small literary house in London named, Bloomsbury.
These are only two examples and if we start talking about such stories, the list is never ending. These examples intend to make you realize that today, if you are going through the torrent of a failure, know that, “failures are must to make you better”. It will allow you to reach new understandings. Remember, a single disappointment stands nowhere in front of your successes in the past. Just stay motivated and learn better.
You are very well aware that what you have been preparing for is one of the toughest exams of the world. Also, you know that you can appear in JEE Main twice in an academic session for 3 consecutive years. So, you still have a chance, a chance to learn from your mistakes, a chance to explore your weak areas, a chance to perform better and a chance to fulfill your dream.
Take this phase as an opportunity to correct past mistakes and push yourself towards your goal. There are so many students who fought many odds and got top ranks in IIT JEE despite undergoing a tough phase. What distinguishes them from others? It is the fact that they didn’t let failure overcome their courage and confidence. Rather than giving up, they worked on their weaknesses and succeeded well. It is all about the ability to overcome failures and making corrections at right time. Stick to the plan that gives you confidence and push yourself to become efficient and productive.
Let’s go through a few tips to help you go ahead:
- Choose the Right Coaching Institute: First and foremost, choose your coaching institute only after a thorough research about its past records and success rate. This is perhaps the most important decision of IIT JEE preparation so do not rely on your friends or any of the acquaintances for this decision. Do not go by word of mouth. Make sure the faculty is experienced with proven track record of success and teaches with right methodology. The coaching institute you choose must give well researched and updated study material, hold regular doubt clearing sessions and there must be personal interaction between the teacher and students.
- Analyse Your Weaknesses: Instead of grieving what happened, look at your JEE Main results with an analytical view so as to determine the reasons behind your inability to score well. Try to understand what is holding you back. You can improve your performance only if you know your mistakes and weaknesses. The mistakes could be poor time management, lack of attentiveness, lack of conceptual clarity, lack of practice etc. So, identify your mistakes and change your approach towards the JEE exam.
- Be Confident: “Anything is possible once you believe you are worthy of achieving it.” You know you have been studying hard and you have a pool of knowledge. You just need to keep going. At no cost let any negative energy overcome your confidence and positive outlook. If there are good days there is a bad day too but don’t let that single bad day take away all your good days.
- Do Not Waste Time: Do not let time take a toll on you. So, join a coaching for IIT JEE right away and ace your preparation. If you want to take time off, do it for what would give you additional benefits or relax your mind.
- Plan Your Strategy for the Next Attempt: Without wasting much time, plan your strategy for next attempt of IIT JEE. You might follow your old strategy or make modifications to it adopt a new one. What matters is you must make a plan on priority basis.
Remember, if you rest or keep lamenting about your JEE Main results, someone else might take your rank. So, get back up even if it feels harder and continue pressing forward.
