My Name Is Manish and I'm Not an IITian - Top 5 Mistakes Which You Should Not Repeat

My Name Is Manish and I am Not an IITian...

Yeah I am not an IITian. I was once an IITJEE aspirant but wasn’t able to Crack JEE just because of some serious mistakes which I committed.

This post is like a “list of blunders” committed by me. I brainstormed some mistakes I made and I hope you don’t repeat the same if you wanna be an IITian.

It’s a dream of every science student to get into one of the best institutes in India i.e The IITs and it was my dream too. I committed some serious mistakes which I am regretting till today.

I posted this article just for one reason i.e TO WARN YOU.

Mistake No 1: I Never paid attention During High School (11 and 12)

This was one of the biggest blunders I ever committed. I never paid attention to what teacher said. Actually my “Plan” was to focus on coaching class and attend regular school classes only for attendance. This proved to be really a bad decision and it backfired me.


Because the school teaches you the base. If you don’t pay attention in the class and directly go for coaching I think you won’t be able to gain anything as in coaching they follow HIGHER LEVEL. In school they prefer to stick to the lower level so that everyone’s understands the matter fast.

The Do’s and Don’t

  • Attend your school (11th and 12th regularly).
  • Pay attention in the class and try to understand whatever teacher teaches.
  • First Priority should be given to School and then Coaching.
  • Give equal importance to Boards and JEE
  • Never commit this mistake.

Mistake No 2: Procrastinated a LOT

Procrastination means postponing work for tomorrow. This quality exists in every human being. Of course it’s a bad quality.

I was really “THE BEST” in procrastinating work. Although I have improved now but still working on it. I always postponed my work for tomorrow.

This proved to be a major disaster. Procrastination was a major cause of me not getting selected in JEE. If I had been a little bit serious that time then I would have done something about it. But it’s already late, My Name is Manish and I am Not an IITian Cry .

Remember this “Procrastination is not an IITians virtue.

Do’s and Don’ts

  • Don’t Procrastinate. Its of no use, believe me. Think practically, If you procrastinate and plan to study Calculus tomorrow then why not today. It’s the same thing as YOU HAVE TO DO IT ON ANY OTHER DAY.
  • If you really procrastinate then here’s a tip which I follow and it really works. Suppose you have planned to study Kinematics today and as usual you are feeling lazy to study it. Just when a thought of postponing the work pops up in your mind, say this to yourself as LOUD as you can.

“What’s the use of postponing yaar. You have to do it today or tomorrow. Instead of building extra pressure, why not finish it off today itself”.

Say this loud and I am sure your will power will drag you to finish the work that day itself.


Mistake No 3: Didn’t study regularly

An IITian quoted “Last minute preparations won’t work for IIT JEE. Start from the first day itself." For JEE study regularly minimum 3 to 4 hours and maximum, till you get tired and feel satisfied.

I never studied regularly. I studied some 3 to 4 days a week that too not seriously.

It’s like taking a daily dose of a tablet. If you miss even a single dose then it can really hurt your health.

Dos and Don’ts.

  • Study daily 7 days a week. Don’t miss out even a single day.
  • Study minimum 3 to 4 hours a day. Although in a survey taken, all the IIT rankers study 7 hours a day on an average.
  • Last minute preparations won’t work, so start from today.

Mistake no 4: Didn’t work Hard and Took JEE for granted.

Yeah I confess publicly that I didnt work hard for JEE. I took it for granted which as expected resulted failure in IIT JEE.

Dos and Don’ts

  • Work hard, Damn Hard and Never take anything for granted.

Mistake No 5: Committed a Lot of Mistakes

Yeah it’s quite a big list. But I have listed only some which are very important.

Every Human Being commits mistakes, so I did the same.

But learning from the mistakes is always appreciated. That’s what I do nowadays; I learn from my mistakes and try not to repeat them EVER.

Dos and Don’ts

  • Please don’t repeat these 5 mistakes. It will really hurt you. I am trying to discover and heal my pain within myself.

"When i think of those days..I really feel like rewinding try it once again.....but its not possible..thats why i advice everyone to use this time which you get as it wont come back again."

And I confess again “My Name is Manish and I am Not an IITian.Cry

Thanks Manish I will be an 2015 jee aspirant and I was making the same mistake done by you and now I won't make this mistake any more thankyou :roll:
# dilip 2013-08-16 21:57
thanks manish for giving me inspiration...
# reya jain 2013-08-15 17:15
thank you manish for giving such suggestion
# tejasv saxena 2013-08-09 22:36
thanks bhai.....i sympathasize you!
# Shrikant Gupta 2013-08-06 15:15
1 of the main reason for failure is also deviation form studying me too got deviated I took drop for prepration and after abhard work till february I got deviated towards love which was not reall and of no use and I started to worry about it then to take tension of studying which is more important.
Any body who read this I always want to alert about this mistake because this is the only age when a boy/girl think that I am now mature enough no one can bluff me or it's time to have a love and get deviated from studies
so focuss on your studies because once you got addmission in a reputated college you have a lot of time for all these things.
# Aditya 2013-07-24 21:56

# AK47 2013-06-10 00:21
Same problem here but after reading your post i think i will start working now on . And for those feeling sleepy while studying , take a break every 30 min of 10-15 min , it really helps (helped in my case ) and two big breaks of 1 and a half hour in a day. You will still get 8 hours of study if the day is a holiday and 4 hours if coaching. Plus finish one subject in the summer vacations , I am in the process of KILLING maths so I will have less maths to deal with plus i can use those concepts in physics easily. But the same problem with me , 5 days of great studies and two days of flop every week...
# shaurya 2013-06-01 13:48

# Tihor 2013-04-13 02:46
Doesn't matter. Join some standard college & stop blaming yourself.

Besides, being in IIT reduces your chance to get a seat in IIMs.

Don't fall into despair. I assure- no matter how bad your life is now, tomorrow will be even worse! Just go on.
# Sai rakshit 2013-04-12 19:05
Bro i am also aspiring to become an IITan.Now i am in 10 IIT is not just a dream for me its my life and everything for me.By reading your story i really felt bad.I can't even imagine how will it be if someone's dreams shatter like this but i say you to learn from ur mistakes and never give up in life. And good luck for ue future
# Vidya priyadarshini 2013-04-02 19:00

# Mayur Dhingra 2013-02-04 23:59
Now, I m in 11th nd wanna crack IIT JEE.. Although, I may call myself topper of my class nd also scored 10 CGPA in 10th class But I didnot study with full heart in 11th ( i consider, by d way i topped in class, but i m not satisfied). Especially, I have not completed my 11th chemistry course nd want 2 power accelerate now in FEB month 1st week.. Any enlighted person here, give me some advice how should I study in a determined way in 12th..
# tejasv saxena 2013-08-09 22:41
hey ...dont do 12 if 11th concepts are not clear,and dont imagine that you will be able to do all in just 1 year,thats realy wrong thought to think in over confidence....r epeat 11..there is no harm in it
# Aakanksha 2013-02-02 10:49
ua absolutely write Manish....
even m nt an iitian and i regret....
regret a lot!!!
why because i could have cracked it.. imissed it all ecause of my procastintion that lead to the destruction of my dreams..... IIt was not just a dream for me but was my life my everythin..I didnt realise that the tym m waisting will ever ever come back...
nowthat m shattere, studying in an avg college bcoz there is actually NOTHING equivalent to btech from iit...m planning for gate... bt doing mtech doesnt provide the same pleasure as by doing btech.... but there is no option left actually!!!
# Karthiga M 2013-01-29 12:37
I m damn sure if you have this pain in ur heart.. u ll surely acheive something wat even IITian Can't acheive

Jus remember " Success usually gives a man satisfaction and ll stop one from acheiving more.. But failure is not like tat It ll give u pain and achieve more than the current success!"

Being an NITtian I could say only one thing to you "It's not the end! World ll not end today... Jus analyse the purpose"Wy u want to be an IITian? for reputation or for attainin high position in life and serve the country?? The 1st option is just an illusion don't beleive in it! second option is stil open to you : u can stil study hard where ever u go and get enough knowledge and experiance and OWN A MILLION DOLLAR COMPANY and compete with Microsoft "" The competition is still open...

Cheer up ! have the pain with hard further!
# Karthiga M 2013-01-29 12:36
Hi Manish,

Gud Article I can say! I can understand how much u feel bad for not being an IItian.

You know wat , usually a person feel bad for his failure means he s going 2 acheive some thing great to heal his pain of failure.

In ur case its not just small failure(U failed to acheive something gr8 and failed) , So when u feel bad for this failure means u r goin to acheive somethin really gr8 to heal it..
# Pratibha Berister 2013-01-28 09:47
HATS OFF TO U SIR there r many people did so but they acctualy don want to acept it instead makes many excuses .. abt there failure..! but thanx for warning all cuming batches to be aware of these things...!
# nishant 2013-01-12 17:54

Elite Academy was established in 1988. It was a humble beginning - we started with a correspondence course for Medical Entrance Exams. A course for IIT-JEE and other Engineering Entrance Exams was introduced soon. There was no looking back thereafter!

hey bro!!
u rock.I know ur article is really going to help me in the longrun.I am actually confused:i always wanted to be an I.A.S bt now i want to be an itian.It's bcoz i have very high dreams which cannot be fulfilled with the salary of an I.A.S.i am just in class 9th so do suggest me which path to follow.
# Kay Samuel 2011-12-04 11:00
Dude, You failed in IIT JEE coz you didn't got the real way. A person who bunked almost every class of Standard 11 and 12 and he cleared IIT without any coaching tution or any extra study ... He even didn't know the abc of Standard 11, but he cleared IIT JEE . You know why, coz he was smart enough to find the pattern of answers acording to questions. Want to crack IIT JEE 2012 and still don't know the basic then don't harash. Don't go through complete syllabus .. Its time to study smartly not like a hard working student .. wish you all the best for IIT JEE 2012 ... Good Luck guyzz.
# xxxholic 2013-08-14 00:03
LOL i am an iitian and i dont think there is such way and there are negative marking tooo your friend surely got pure luck
# Ranveer 2012-06-29 10:48
hey dude.... then u don't know the reality.. i don't know days every one is saying more study is not important...... they are very apart from the reality... study is still important in life . & ll forever..... their is no pattern in IIT JEE.... u think its ABC ABC game... u have to solve the question to get the answer...

And.... if by chance someone get admission into IIT it's just his luck nothing else.... & everyone luck is not good like that.

# shashank123 2010-05-12 18:56
i m an iitian but i didnt study daily.if you want to crack iit you should be desperate and know your potential.but regular study is should learn the basics first.sorry for manish but iit is not what i expected.for the sake of the name it is just popular .you should ask any iitian about its standard.atleas t i m not satisfied.
# sailinichitra 2010-05-07 16:13
hi Manish.!
I am new to this corner.Today ,after readin this article i seriously feel i should"ve joined u guys atleast a month prior to JEE..
But now its too late.if i had read this article before i would have got thru any one of the national entrances..u knoe,even i committed the same mistakes.
Its all over.
but i have one thing to say "this is one of the articles isay one of the best articles which motivated me."
The essence of it is in the title man! "My name is Manish n am not an IITian"
great job!!

Hey Manish i just read ur profile dat u r still a college student........ den y worry man u can still have a bright career as u still have post grad left........Inf act many iitians demselves go for exams lik civilservices,I IM or abroad.....wel u can have a go at IIM or Civilservices or If u r intrestd go abroad for MTECH or doing MTECH 4m IIT............ .u hav lots of opportunies n I am sure watever u choose u wil definitely be succesful coz now u know exactly wats needed for success n u wil not repeat ur mistakes for ur PG ENtrance atleast........ .By reading ur articles,etc I am sure u must hav already thought about it and must be working for it damn hard n also I guess u must be topping in ur engg college as u wont repeat ur mistakes in college for sure........Mov e on look ahead.......... .......The past is dead n gone n nothing can b done about it. My best wishes for ur future man ALL D BEST......m sure u wil come out in flying colours as u must be a focusd adult now after ur IIT mishap........a s dey say a wounded tiger is d most dangerous...... so ur iit prep has wounded u but i guess it has made u a stronger man n u r a serious contender for ur PG entrance n it has mad u a college topper I guess.......... ............... ............... .finally dese r my feelings n thoughts.I dunno just wanted to express them to u I am sorry if i hav hurt u newhere in dis comment......Do reply telling me d college in which u r studying n what hav u decided to do for PG........BYE

Hello manish,
Very sorry to know that you couldn't qualify for IIT JEE [removed]void(0 );

I found your article perfect. I thank you from my heart for the noble cause of helping others (like me) for avoiding your mistakes... actually, your mistakes are very general, and all aspirants need to know abt this. SO it helps a lot!

I am preparing for IIT JEE 2011, not taken 11th that seriously. But after reading your article, I am somewhat encouraged that I should start effective study right from now on.

Thanks again

u rock man....superb article
# sandeepkumar 2010-03-22 04:52
yes ialso agree.ials ignored my schoolclasses and gave prteference to coaching.result iwas not able to simple questions based on polymers ,optics ,carbohydrates, fared below 85% in my class 12 boards,meanwhil e pursuing from d.t.u
problem is tht questions asked in this compitive exam has morphed and tough language ,requirehigher cincept in maths ,such as grphical methods in function ,dreivative,s integrl calculas,but you can grasp all if you star from bottom only studr regularly.donot sram the things,start from the easiest then upgrade slowlr.remeeber slow and stedy wins the race

# Vimarsh 2010-03-21 19:06
Committing mistakes and accepting it is not a very big thing but advising others not to repeat the same demands much of Unselfishness.
Hats off to you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!
