Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, students are devising several methods to prepare for various competitive examinations. From taking help of online coaching portals to approaching subject experts, students are making all-out efforts to enhance their study skills. While all exams scheduled for April, May and June have been postponed, coaching institutes in the country are shut.

During the lockdown, Tamanna Negi (22), an IAS aspirant, has been utilising her time wisely. She has been managing her timetable in a way so that she could devote her time to all major subjects.

She said there is no doubt that the lockdown has affected her smooth preparation for examinations. However, she added that considering the positive side has been helping her to prepare for her exams in these testing times as well.

“Finishing incomplete tasks has helped me beat the lockdown blues. I have been focusing on subject-specific skills and analysing concepts, which may impact my preparations,” added Tamanna.

Unlike many students, she used to study at a city-based library and was planning to go to Delhi to join coaching classes in April. However, everything came to a standstill due to the lockdown.

“Fortunately, I had all my notes and books, which didn't affect my preparation. However, I miss preparing in the library. To create a similar atmosphere at home, I have started waking up early and sleeping early at night. Waking up at 4 am keeps the mind healthy and fresh,” said Tamanna.
