Director's Message






     
                              

To succeed in any endeavour what a person needs is the right effort in the right time, and in the right direction. If we were to draw a rough comparison, we are saying that to reach a certain destination one needs velocity. Velocity is a combination of speed and direction. If your speed is excellent but your direction is not pointing towards your goal, you are bound to reach somewhere else. Similarly, even if your direction is right but you lack speed, you will never reach your goal on time.

        A student is a person who studies. To understand as to who a student is, we have to understand the process called ‘studying’.

Studying is a process that involves two stages :

1. Receiving

2. Comprehending

During the receiving stage, a student is primarily involved in collection of information. This information is sourced through various channels, including classroom lectures, tutoring sessions, reading books, surfing the internet, audiovisual media and discussions with friends and family members. These activities require skills such as note-taking skills, writing skills, etc.

Comprehension is stage two in the studying process. It requires a student to understand what has been received. Without understanding, there is no studying. There are many well – wishers who advise students to focus on understanding and not just memorizing. But unfortunately, there are very few who can answer the following question :

 

How do we understand and measure our level of understanding?

If a student has understood a particular topic, he or she must be able to perform the following activities:

1. Translate – From one language to another, from numeric to textual and vice-versa.

2. Interpret – Establish a relationship with new or existing knowledge.

3. Extrapolate – Solve problems and apply to new situations.

Let us begin by surveying the study skills that are prevalent today. Habits and skills are not developed overnight but once they are accumulated, they as easy as counting to ten because even unconsciously your mind is programmed to follow them. Hence, we would encourage you to start working on them with dedication as soon as you come across a skill which you feel will help you score better in Boards.

1.    Read the title – Help your mind prepare to receive the subject at hand.

2.    Read the introduction and / or summary – Orient yourself to how this chapter fits the author’s purposes, and focus on the author’s statement of most important points.

3.    Notice each boldface heading and subheading – Organize your mind before you begin to read – build a structure for the thoughts and details to come.

4.    Notice any graphics – Charts, maps, diagrams, etc. that are there to make a point – don’t miss them.

5.    Notice reading aids – Italics, bold face print, chapter objective, end-of-chapter questions are all included to help you sort, comprehend and remember.
