Should I Drop a Year?


Kuch pane ke liye kuch khona padhta hai

It simply means “if you want to achieve something, you need to lose something too.”

Dropping should be only considered only if you think you missed out IIT or NIT with a few marks or rank.

A year drop can be good for some students while for some it makes life heck.

Saying is easier then doing.

Dropping a year is a very difficult task. You can ask this to any student who has dropped a year. After some months of studying you might even get frustrated studying the same portion again and again.

But that frustration disappears if you are highly determined and you love your subject

It’s always advisable to join a college and prepare for JEE, AIEEE or other exams simultaneously since it will lower your stress to perform on that D day and if by some chance you are not able to clear JEE ,AIEEE or others then you have backup which is continue your course.

Chances of getting bored and depressed is also high…You might even think that what if I don’t perform well in those 3 to 6 hours…..and all that stuff.

However joining some coaching classes is always worth since it will help you to stay motivated.

Advantages of dropping

  • You are transformed to a stronger student specially that kind of 1 year single minded devotion can be really helpful to you throughout your life.

Disadvantages of dropping a year.

  • Depression and others related factors can also affect your studies
