Considering the self-isolation period as the most precious time for students to revise their syllabus for competitive exams, Parmeshwar Jha, regional director, Aakash Educational Services, who is also popular among students as a chemistry mentor, said the lockdown has given students enough time to prepare for exams. At present, he spends 3-4 hours daily in conducting virtual classes of students.

He is of the view that with the help of online classes, individual attention is given to students and teachers are also careful about delivering better lectures.

As the National Testing Agency has announced to conduct all engineering and medical entrance examinations next month, students need to adopt more proactive approach, he added.

“Extracting positivity from every unusual situation should be the prime concern of students as well as academicians. Going online during the lockdown has helped us wider avenues of the education process, which we had never explored before. Earlier, students had the option of getting their doubts cleared only through their teachers. However, with the help of digital classes, the students are provided with the alternative of communicating to subject experts of their choices no matter where they are sitting. At Aakash, we have further given students the option of asking their queries through e-mails and mobile applications,” said Jha.

With advancement in technology, Jha and other faculty members of Aakash institute are of the view that virtual classes are going to sustain for long. With the help of online assessment and evaluations, students also feel more confident in interacting with teachers.

Mentioning key tips for cracking the JEE (Advance) and medical examinations, Jha said aspirants now need to focus on smart preparations and they cannot afford to make errors this time as there are more chances of rejection then selection.

Students should try to utilise the lockdown period more and more for self-study and they should practise mock tests, he added.

“Accuracy in various topics, revision of syllabus, resolving doubts through online mock tests and discussion are the other key factors for the success in exams,” he said.
