How to study while preparing for IIT with school/tutions.

  1. Jul 12, 2015 #1
    All right, guys. I am a part of rat race to IIT, the most premier institute of Engineering in my country, with one of the hardest entrance test on the high school level more then China's goakao.(Sorry for spell).

    I love the sciences, and am studying Physics, chemistry and Mathematics in my school. We who are keen to get into IIT's go into some sort of Mock classes called tution or coaching classes. Though my coaching is extremely reputed, the teachers are not of the quality. The other top students in ranking in our coaching keep up to it by having good teachers in their school, however in my school my class haven't got the top quality students, the other classes in our school enjoy, despite being the class with most Intelligent kids.

    Thus, my ranking in tests is getting worse and worse, and I feel a need that I need to start studying by myself. Is their, any advice on how I can strengthen my Maths, Physics and Chemistry so much, that I may return back to 1st position in my coaching I'm used with. I want to self study, in a way which is most efficient. My time table: (A typical day)

    Wake up at 6:00 Am, get a bath and get fresh, by 7 I leave for school, and return home by 1:30. I have lunch and a little T.V. till 2:30. At 2:30 I get changed, go down and start studying while waiting for the bus to Coaching. At bus, I leave my home by 3 and mostly studies in the bus. At 3:50 We reach the coaching and classes start by 4 Pm. We study. (The worst part here is that I am taught Physics by a Television lectures(old crt tv(not monitor but TV)) ) . With the lecture quality of Physics being far less superior compared to khan academy. I return home by 10, I have dinner till 10 30 with my family, and I go study and sleep and the cycle continue.

    Any help on making a good time table and how I self study?

    Thank You.

    What coaching centre are you in?
    Btw, exact same situation here, besides the fact that the teachers in my centre are brilliant, all 3. Even I don't get time for self study. And on top of that I'm applying to American colleges as well, so it's a crazy situation.
    Sorry, can't help though, I'm way more short on time.

    Vision Infinity. (It's a a reputed coaching in Bhopal and had got very good rankers from the city, Air 10.). The teachers who were good had left the coaching and I joined it without eventually knowing the current condition. Guess, I'll have to do something myself ughh..

    You could always join another coaching, or at least enrol in the test series of FIITJEE. I know many people who are enrolled both in FIITJEE and Vidyamandir (I live in Delhi). But you'll have to be careful about it, in case the other one ends up to be worse than your current one. Best of luck!
