Bhubaneswar, June 8 (LocalWire): While moving from high school or class 10 to class 11 in Odisha is exciting for students and their parents, the transition does not come easy, without its share of confusion and moments of stress.
At times, most of the parents and the students get confused about what is right or wrong for them, what course should they choose or what combination of subjects would be good.
Another big concern relates to the school or college they should apply for or join.
In most of such situation, they either rely on advice from family and friends or simply go by the brand value or the simple belief that the bigger the brand, the better it is.
The transition from the tenth standard to eleventh is very important in student’s life especially if they opt to complete their intermediate from college instead of school.
While in school a student is bound to be disciplined because of the restrictions by the authorities, the college presents an entirely different environment where among a huge pool of students no one even cares if one is regularly attending the class or not.
The college introduces students to an altogether different world of freedom where they have the right to make their own decisions.
In the midst of this newly found freedom they often make mistakes that they end up regretting later and hence, it’s better to take prevention beforehand rather than being sorry later for the mistake.
Here are 10 simple dos and don’ts or mantras that will help you sail through the journey with ease.
The 10 Mantras
1) Dedicate your time during eleventh and twelfth class purely to make your career. It’s not that the scores alone will decide your future, but scoring good marks will surely make the path to your goal a bit easy.
2) During this period don’t run after friendships or relationships; you will get plenty of time for it later in life.
If you get the success you will look back to these bonding as beautiful experiences, if you fail these will haunt you like a bad dream.
3) Be disciplined. If you are getting the freedom to utilize it in the right manner. Only then it will be fruitful for you. Freedom is provided to students to grab more opportunities not to misuse it.
4) For decisions like where to get admissions and other study related decisions, it might help to take advice from others. However, do not ignore your gut feeling. Do what you feel is right for you.
5) It’s good to be helpful to others but let it not delay your work. Always complete your tasks before helping others.
6) Don’t just be a book worm. Pursue some extra-curricular activities, hobbies or habits like reading, dancing, and others that can act as a stress buster.
7) Exercise and eat good food regularly. Don’t neglect your health for the sake of anything. A healthy mind resides only in a healthy body.
8) Keep a fixed schedule and stick to it. Your walking, sleeping, eating, studying all should be according to the schedule. Don’t mess with your timings.
9) Work hard alone is not sufficient to compete in today’s world. You need to work smart too. Make proper action plans and change the strategy if they are not giving the desired output.
10) Believe in yourself. Be self-confident, not overconfident and keep doing the right thing. Everything else will fall in place accordingly.
