Hey people!

So, this time around, I have my class 12th Boards and entrance exams, which means I won't be able to help you people in the same way I tried to help the last batch. But I think you people are in safe hands, what with many of the 2018 batch people staying back to guide you through this beautiful journey. 

Beautiful journey....Hmm, it might not seem much like it right now, and I half expect some of you to go berserk at the mention of the word "beautiful" in association with boards. But just you wait. You'll see soon, that I wasn't snorting crack while typing this out.

So, this Friday, you will sit for your first Board Examination. Your first public examination, on such a massive scale. Your chance to prove who you are. Your way to glory. Eternal, unquestionable fame. Immortality.


I said this before, I'm saying this now. Yes, the boards are important, but they are seriously not what they are hyped-up to be. Yes, it is the first public exam you are possibly taking,., but it isn't the last. Yes, there is a chance to prove yourself now, but even if you don't, no one's stopping you to do that later. 

This does not mean you take them lightly, though. Chances are, you have already studied the portion in syllabus. Chances are (extremely high) you have been bored sick of doing the same syllabus again and again and again and again. And again.
Chances are, you need humongous motivation to continue dragging through this oh-so-boring curriculum once more. I felt the same. But you know what helped me? I used to think, that this is the last time ever that I'll have to read MoV. The last time ever I'll have to practise those irritating maps that never seem to be correct. The last time I'll have to learn why some random crop loves some random temperature and wants to get intimate with some random soil. The last time I'll be calculating how many fking watermelons that stupid Ramu must give to the even-more-stupid Shyamu so that they have equal fking watermelons.

Get it? I vented out my frustration on the books. Read them once more, just the last time, just the very last...I used to see the irritating kids play outdoors, making unusually more noise just to test my patience. But I used to think: boys, you just wait. Some day, you'll come to 10th, then I'll be there in front of your house, shouting my throat hoarse singing all the bloody nursery rhymes you loved. I don't know about you, but thinking things like these gave me immense satisfaction. Call me sadistic; anything to go through those books once more.

Of course, I chose to pursue Biology, and the kids in tenth never got to hear me singing nursery rhymes, but that is another matter.

Anyways, so if you think this is worthless toil, and you already know everything there is to know, sit back. 

And give yourself one tight slap. On the cheek. Of your face. (you never know with these kids xD)

Because if you stop NOW, at this juncture, when you have to give the final push, all might be lost. I've seen this happen, and I've seen the reverse happen too. People who didn't study throughout the year, working like donkeys and acing the boards. Now, now, you don't want to be a donkey who worked hard throughout the year and still fell behind. That would be shameful, right?

Okay, now to talk about "Pressure". The big daddy who spoils the exams for even the best-prepared nerds. How do you handle it? Just think about it. What causes the pressure? Is it lack of preparedness? Never mind, you have time right now, just study well, and it should go! Is it family pressure to excel? Then don't take it as pressure. Take it as a challenge, to bring good marks and show what you can do. Some might still take pressure because of the "challenge". My tip is, become a sponge. Absorb it. Take it in, and store it in some part of your body which doesn't lead to you brain(I'll leave that to your imagination, thank you very much). And then forget about it.

Come to think of it, why should there be pressure? Haven't you already given soooo many prelims? What do they ask there? You have to sit on a chair. You have a pen and other stationary, they give you the writing sheet and the question paper, you are given the time limit to solve the paper. And you do it. What happens in boards? The same old shit. You sit on a chair, with pens and stationary, you are given the papers, and you write! The course is same but you are better than when you gave your prelims! The only difference may be the invigilator, maybe the center is different so you may not have your friends with you. That shouldn't matter, unless you are a serial cheater who depends on his/her friends to even pass. Now that would be a valid reason for pressure xD.

I think I said this many a times the last year too: Don't fret about the question paper. It'll be damn easy. I'm not joking, but my first thoughts on seeing the Science paper was, "WTF, I slogged so much, and they want me to answer THIS?" Now, the paper must've felt angry and I was mercilessly trolled for being overconfident. What happened was, that there was a question in Section B, and it asked the equation of photosynthesis, in a part. I remember being a bit in a hurry, so I saw the question, thought, "Ye to mujhe aata hai", and very coolly moved on to the next part. (Thug life alert). Without answering the question. Luckily I had attempted all the extras too, so I escaped. I still laugh about it today. My aim is to tell you, 1) I am a pretty stupid guy, and 2) The paper will be too easy, just keep your head on your shoulders (unlike me ;P)

All rightey. Now, I think I must tell you an open secret. English is the devil. You prepare as hard as you can for it, because it is the one blot on everyone's result sheet. It is the difference between coming 3rd in Delhi-NCR and coming 1st there. Sadly, I learnt it the hard way. If you don't believe me, look through the results page and see for yourself.

I've been rambling on for long now, so if you have been able to read till here, congratulations on surviving my banter.

Let me give you one last pro-tip: There will be many nerds running amok, asking weird questions just to scare you before the exam. Give them the silent treatment. Ignore their bullshit. I can guarantee, nothing in the paper will be outside the syllabus. 

Okay, it must be getting difficult to read any more of this, so I'll just get to the end. If any of you have any more issues, feel free to inbox me, or comment down here. 

So, all the best people! May you ace the boards, and yes,

P.S.: I didn't have it in my time, but if those pests(kids) disturb you, just give them the death stare, and say, "Apna. Time. Aayega."
That ought to settle it.

Yooo , everyone!! How're you all doing?? Don't reply like everyone, give a genuine reply to this question. xD So, boards are coming nearer and nearer as the days are passing and this might be a source of tension to some and may be some are really confident.
Let me make some things clear today. If you don't know me, then I'm (read my name below this post. xD), a 2k18 ICSEian. I've been through this time and I really don't want the 2k19 batch to commit the same blunders as I did in my time. Here, I'm trying to share some points for doing well in the boards..

1) You will surely be really nervous some days before your first exam, thinking about how you'll do, how'll be the environment in the exam hall and so on...but friends, it won't last for long, if you don't have any tension related to your preparations, you'll get adjusted to the environment in the examination hall in one or two days.

2) If you aren't confident of your preparations, then, study hard now and most important---> DON'T BE CARELESS THE DAY BEFORE YOUR EXAM, DO REVISE IN THE BEST MANNER POSSIBLE. STUDYING THE DAY BEFORE THE EXAM CAN WORK WONDERS. I didn't revise properly before my maths exam and couldn't do that well enough. 

If you're well equipped with the concepts, and have got the exam temperament required(which, surely is attained by practicing and giving more and more tests in an exam like environment), luck will favour you. There are many who are studying but the extraordinary will emerge as the winner. Don't get hyper excited on finding the paper easy, maintain your calmness and composure. These all have been experienced by me, so I'm sharing my experience.

4) I had watched the full movie of Merchant Of Venice, for my exam, the same morning!! Didn't sleep that night! You can also watch the movie but do take proper rest unlike me. A movie is better retained by mind than the text, I think.

5) My most focussed point:

I believe those ICSE days were the golden days of my life, I received a next level positivity during this time, last year. MISS U DAYS!!

If anyone of you want some tips regarding preparation, whatsapp me at:
9568004561, if you think I'm worthy enough. I'll try my best to respond.

Thanks and wish all of u a HAPPY PREPARATION!! Ba-bye!!
