It’s High time to realize START Studying ….NOW

Look at the following Pune university’s April 2015 TY BSc. (computer Science) Result
ty2015 result

Only 43% PASS, which means 57% students FAILED.

Is it Shocking to YOU ??

Every year final year results are similar and it’s not shocking to me as I am observing this from last so many years.

Why such low percentage?

It mainly happens because in all earlier years(FY, SY) University gives you facility of ATKT(allowed to keep term). Most of the students use this facility and move to next year with backlogs. But this doesn’t happens in last semester. It’s trap, most of the student’s get habitual of ATKT and they are finally trapped in last exam where there is no ATKT. After final year, even if U have single backlog it will lead to YD (year down).
Student’s don’t realize difference between Final year 1st semester and 2nd semester. You get equal time in both semesters but last semester has double load with increased hurdles. In final year 1st sem, U have only theory exam of 300 marks (6subj x 50marks) and no practical exam. Whereas in 2nd sem, U have 300 marks theory exam + 300 marks practical exam. Which explains U double load.
In last sem, U have all practical assignment submission + Project submission + Graphics mini project (added from this year) + Practical exam+ internal exam in college + University final theory exam……. so much load to complete in just 3 months. Actually speaking this itself is overload for students (those typically have backlogs) as compared to 1st semester and on the top of it there is college gathering, sports, days celebration, trips in 2nd semester which consumes ur lot of time. Plus there will be cricket matches (world cup or IPL) to distract you.  Most of the students(especially backlog students) get distracted to all these time pass activities.
They only realize this in Feb, when time has already gone. As compared to other months of year, Feb has less days 😦
Practical exam will start in March 1st week and will go on till 15-20 march. Theory exam will be roughly in April 1st week, so U hardly have a gap between practical and theory exam to study. Believe me, U will be dam busy in Feb as U will be having all submissions ( practical assignments and 2 projects) and your internal exam.  So, now tell me ?
When is the time for STUDY ???
When r U going to practice programs for Practical exam ( Syspro, OS , Java  Sem1 &2, PHP sem1 &2 + CG). More than 100 programs to practice.
I m frustrated today, it’s 21st January and students are still enjoying n busy in celebrating their college days n playing matches. It’s already too late….. just count number of days remaining and load U have to study.
Ideally right now, U should be studying 2 hrs every day(theory) and practising 4 programs a day.

Who can still afford to enjoy? only those students who clearly knows that they CAN NOT complete their Graduation in this April exam and need one more attempt for backlog exam(October). Then it’s ok !! U can Enjoy ur college days to fullest ( as they will never come back) and study next year.  All such students can refer to my other blog posts (after your results) dedicated to those Final year failed students (57%),  explaining how they can best utilize their year down time.
So before U get shock in June, better start studying… NOW

Hope this weak U up !!

start sudying

FYI : I went to Switzerland for my hooneymoon, will You be going ?

Failed in First year of Graduation?

fail exam

Now what ? 1 year break
Should I change course or should I repeat first year? Should I change college?

You need to understand, What are real reasons of failing?

– Failed in choosing course?

if you misunderstood your current course or now if you realize that you are not liking your current course then better change it as you will not succeed if you do not have interest in it.

– Failed in understanding subjects?

What efforts have you taken? did you attain college lectures? did u read books ? did you join classes for extra coaching if you are not understanding in college? In spite of taking all these efforts if you have failed then better change course. If you honestly feel that you have not taken those efforts then join good coaching class and build your foundation strong. Alternatively change your college and take fresh admission to better college where you will get better teaching and you can create your fresh new image.

– Failed in preparation of Exam?

Some times you treat first year as rest year and enjoy your new college life too much as a result you study less and when exam comes it’s too late to realize that you have very less or no time to prepare. In this situation you can repeat first year either in same college or fresh admission in other college and focus more on studies.

– Failed in writing papers?

Refer to EQPS or answer papers of scholar students to understand how to score good marks. Practice writing papers with time limit and ask your subject teachers to check and give their feedback on improving your scores.
Request University/college and get photocopy of your papers and find out where you went wrong. If possible also get some scholar student’s help and get their answer paper photocopy to compare their answers with yours.

– Are you outsider (hostelite student)?

You need some time to adjust with new city, people, climate, food style(mess), responsibilities,  etc…
if you are leaving away from home for the 1st time then normally you tend to enjoy your freedom as it’s new city for you and mostly no body knows them, so freak out, Enjoy Life ,  party !!. Eventually you Study very less and result is FAIL in academics.

– Failed because of Medical or exceptional problem? you could not prepare or give papers.

Better repeat 1st year, study hard, score high and make best use of your break time.

Now what ?   what now

If you are year down then now you have to think of Whether to repeat 1st year in same college or take fresh admission to 1st year in different college?
it’s up to you. If you are self driven and if you think you really did not study last year then use this year and study hard. If required get coaching from good class to build your foundation strong.
If you take admission to college then again you will have to attain college compulsory (lectures and practicals) which will leave you very less time for studies. instead I will advise you to join classes. Further if you are really weak then try to get some personal tutor to help you personally.
If you take admission to same college for 1st year for same course then it won’t make much difference as most of the things will be same. Instead you can think of changing college and create your fresh image. Take college that has good faculties / placements / near by your home.

How can I make best use of year?

– study in depth of failed subjects, practice earlier year question papers, score high, get good percentage which will help you in getting job.
– In Pune university backlog exam will be in October, so till October exam focus only on ur failed subjects and make them strong. After your backlog exam start studying 2nd year syllabus on ur own (from books, Internet, private institutes) so that you will shine in 2nd year and give you more confidence.


“First year is not a Rest year, it’s  a Test year”.

You need to test whether you are in right course. If it’s not suitable to you then better change course instead of just dragging your self for another 3 years and get paper degree which will be of no use.

Failed in Final Year Exam?

You were curious to know your exam result, but then you find that you have failed!!

For some students it was expected considering their past performance, exam preparation and the way they wrote their exam papers. But for some students this is shocking news!! Shock of failure depends on what loss is associated with it. For example, when you failed in 3-4 subjects of FY(First year) or SY was still all right as you were allowed to go to next level(sem/year), No big loss!! So that time failing in 3-4 subjects did not matter much, But now one backlog of TY has resulted into year down…. a loss of 1 year.  What now?

First Step is to accept the fact as soon as possible and move on, start planning for future. Those who were expecting or had doubt about t heir result must have already done some planning and that’s why failing is not BIG problem for them. But what about others, Who did not expect at all??

Off course temporary remedy is applying for revaluation / re-verification, which might work in some exceptional cases. But what about time factor? By the time you get revaluation result, you might miss out the current opportunities. In case you failed in only one subject then I will recommend you to apply for revaluation and take provisional admission. This will save your one year if your revaluation result is success. Before you apply for revaluation, ask following few questions to yourself.

  • Did I really study well for this paper?
  • Was I comfortable about this subject?
  • What are internal test marks showing?
  • How well I wrote the paper? How many marks paper I attempted? How many answers were correct?

Applying for revaluation or re-verification will be good idea only if you are very sure about your performance. Don’t  just rely fully on reval/re-verification result, better start studying for that paper. Focus on your weakness Identify your weakness in the subject and work on it? Find out, from where you can learn those concepts/programs/problems/topics? I am sure there will be some good learning sources like notes, books, friends, seniors, teachers, classes or internet. Now this year you don’t have college, so you have lot of time free which you can utilize for reading from reference books and making your own notes. Collect previous question papers and solve them following time constrain, get them checked from respective subject teachers. Find out your mistakes and learn from them. Try to look at answer papers of scholar students, see how they write paper and learn how to score good marks. Best utilization of 1 year You will be appearing for exam in October and its results will be out somewhere in December. Even if you pass in December, you will have to wait till June for the next course as Pune University’s academic year starts in June. (This I really hate as most of the Indian universities start their academic year in June and there are no admissions in between. Whereas  foreign universities  have 2 to 3 intakes per year.  Some of the universities even allow to complete some subjects in vacation. Indian universities should not punish students for 1 whole year for few backlogs. University can make their exam department more effective and conduct re-exams immediately after one month of declaration of result.) This does not mean that you should lose your 1 year. You can make best utilization of your entire one year. Till backlog exam you should study for your failed subjects thoroughly from basics. Make sure now you score well and achieve desired percentage. Mere Passing is not enough!! Sometimes passing with just  40 marks is not enough. Many companies demand for first class during placements. Even for appearing some government exams there is certain percentage required. I know some students who purposefully failed in one or two subjects so that they cover up required marks in those failed subjects and achieve first class. I also know some students who take break for 1 year and give Class improvement exam(University allow reappearing for 3 papers and considers best performance marks) Once you finish your backlog exam, learn something of your interest that will help you in future for making money(job/business). Exploring different Career options Last 3 years you were busy in college activities(lectures, practical, coaching classes), you hardly got time to analyze yourself or explore different career options. Now since you are free for 1 year, do some proper research and explore various career options that are suitable to you. May be you will find something that may act as turning point of your life. Preparing for Entrance exams Some students were preparing for MBA entrance along with their TY. As their focus and energy was divided, they could neither focus on their academics nor on CET / CAT. As a result they either get so-so college for MBA or fail in some TY subject.  Good idea was they should have focused on TY last year and Prepare for MBA entrance this year. Any ways, since you are free for 1 year now, you can prepare for all such entrances dedicatedly. Time is Money Convert your free time into money. Get some job and start earning to support all your needs. It becomes embarrassing to ask money from your parents every time, especially now when you have lost 1 academic year. This working experience will definitely help you in future.  It will be great if you get some job in your interested area. On job you will learn more than text books. If you really make good money then you can even afford to learn further whatever you like on your own. At the end what I will suggest is, Take every failure in positive way. Remember, Every failed step is getting one step closer to Success. Look at the example of Thomas Edison, he was successful in inventing bulb in his 1000th attempt and he says that “he learnt 999 ways of how we can’t make bulb”. Academic Success is not the everything in Life. That’s not true measurement of SUCCESS.

Identify your strength, everybody has some.  Try to excel in your strength area. Everybody can’t have their blood group B +ve, but at least you can be positive.
