TIME MANAGEMENT

Developing time management skills is a journey
that may begin with this Guide, but needs practice and other guidance along the way.

One goal is to help yourself become aware of how you use your time
as one resource in organizing, prioritizing, and succeeding in your studies
in the context of competing activities of friends, work, family, etc.

First: try our exercise in time management:
How do you spend your time each day?

Strategies on using time:
These applications of time management have proven to be effective as good study habits.

As we go through each strategy, jot down an idea of what each will look like for you:

* Blocks of study time and breaks
As your school term begins and your course schedule is set, develop and plan for, blocks of study time in a typical week. Blocks ideally are around 50 minutes, but perhaps you become restless after only 30 minutes? Some difficult material may require more frequent breaks. Shorten your study blocks if necessary—but don’t forget to return to the task at hand! What you do during your break should give you an opportunity to have a snack, relax, or otherwise refresh or re-energize yourself. For example, place blocks of time when you are most productive: are you a morning person or a night owl?
o Jot down one best time block you can study. How long is it? What makes for a good break for you? Can you control the activity and return to your studies?

* Dedicated study spaces
Determine a place free from distraction (no cell phone or text messaging!) where you can maximize your concentration and be free of the distractions that friends or hobbies can bring! You should also have a back-up space that you can escape to, like the library, departmental study center, even a coffee shop where you can be anonymous. A change of venue may also bring extra resources.
o What is the best study space you can think of? What is another?

* Weekly reviews
Weekly reviews and updates are also an important strategy. Each week, like a Sunday night, review your assignments, your notes, your calendar. Be mindful that as deadlines and exams approach, your weekly routine must adapt to them!
o What is the best time in a week you can review?

* Prioritize your assignments
When studying, get in the habit of beginning with the most difficult subject or task. You’ll be fresh, and have more energy to take them on when you are at your best. For more difficult courses of study, try to be flexible: for example, build in “reaction time” when you can get feedback on assignments before they are due.
o What subject has always caused you problems?

* Achieve “stage one”--get something done!
The Chinese adage of the longest journey starting with a single step has a couple of meanings: First, you launch the project! Second, by starting, you may realize that there are some things you have not planned for in your process. Details of an assignment are not always evident until you begin the assignment. Another adage is that “perfection is the enemy of good”, especially when it prevents you from starting! Given that you build in review, roughly draft your idea and get going! You will have time to edit and develop later.
o What is a first step you can identify for an assignment to get yourself started?

* Postpone unnecessary activities until the work is done!
Postpone tasks or routines that can be put off until your school work is finished!
This can be the most difficult challenge of time management. As learners we always meet unexpected opportunities that look appealing, then result in poor performance on a test, on a paper, or in preparation for a task. Distracting activities will be more enjoyable later without the pressure of the test, assignment, etc. hanging over your head. Think in terms of pride of accomplishment. Instead of saying “no” learn to say “later”.
o What is one distraction that causes you to stop studying?

* Identify resources to help you
Are there tutors? An “expert friend”? Have you tried a keyword search on the Internet to get better explanations? Are there specialists in the library that can point you to resources? What about professionals and professional organizations. Using outside resources can save you time and energy, and solve problems.
o Write down three examples for that difficult subject above?
Be as specific as possible.

* Use your free time wisely
Think of times when you can study "bits" as when walking, riding the bus, etc. Perhaps you’ve got music to listen to for your course in music appreciation, or drills in language learning? If you are walking or biking to school, when best to listen? Perhaps you are in a line waiting? Perfect for routine tasks like flash cards, or if you can concentrate, to read or review a chapter. The bottom line is to put your time to good use.
o What is one example of applying free time to your studies?

* Review notes and readings just before class
This may prompt a question or two about something you don’t quite understand, to ask about in class, or after. It also demonstrates to your teacher that you are interested and have prepared.
o How would you make time to review?
Is there free time you can use?

* Review lecture notes just after class
Then review lecture material immediately after class.
The first 24 hours are critical. Forgetting is greatest within 24 hours without review!
o How would you do this?
Is there free time you can use?

Review your ten applications above.
Select one, and develop a new study habit.
Try something you have a good chance of following through and accomplishing. Nothing succeeds like a first successful try!

Develop criteria for adjusting your schedule
to meet both your academic and non-academic needs

Effective aids:

* Create a simple "To Do" list
This simple program will help you identify a few items, the reason for doing them, a timeline for getting them done, and then printing this simple list and posting it for reminders.
* Daily/weekly planner
Write down appointments, classes, and meetings on a chronological log book or chart.
If you are more visual, sketch out your schedule
First thing in the morning, check what's ahead for the day
always go to sleep knowing you're prepared for tomorrow
* Long term planner
Use a monthly chart so that you can plan ahead.
Long term planners will also serve as a reminder to constructively plan time for yourself

MBBS COURSE IS STILL ON PEAK

MBBS is a bachelor level course and it stands for Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery. It is one of the most rewarding career for those interested in biological science. It has a very great importance in the society as it is the science of curing sick people.
The MBBS course is a very difficult course of study. The course duration is also very large. MBBS is a five and a half year full time course which includes one year long internship. Due to this difficulty and long duration, only those candidates can complete these courses, who have great interest in the subject and a deep sense of serving others. Moreover, only a limited number of seats are available for students to pursue MBBS course. But in spite of all these difficulties, every year thousands of doctors pass out from medical colleges all over the country.
A doctor’s profession includes a lot of hard work and patience. The job of a Doctor is a full time duty. There is no specified working hour for a Doctor. Due to this, sometimes it becomes very difficult to manage work and home together along with each other. Due to this reason also many of the young generation do not go for the medical profession. But still there are a lot many candidates for whom the medical profession is most fulfilling career option.
Being a Doctor is undoubtedly one of the most reputed jobs. The government gives many facilities to a doctor. The salary of a Professional with a MBBS degree is much high as compared to graduates in other fields. The doctor commands a respect in the society. Due to all these and many other reasons, MBBS is still on peak.

TIPS AND TRICKS TO CRACK AIPMT-2011

The All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) is a yearly college entrance examination in India. The exam is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Delhi for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in several medical colleges around the country.
AIPMT will have two Objectives round this year. Here we are placing few tips and tricks which will help you in cracking AIPMT 2010.
Important chapters
Here is the list of Most Important chapters that you must learn by heart!

PHYSICS:
Heat and thermodynamics (graphical), SHM and Waves, Kirchhoff’s Laws, Magnetic effect & Electromagnetic induction. It is always preferable to go for modern physics as lots of questions are asked from this unit. Concept of Projectile, Impulse, Momentum & centre of Mass are also a few important chapters in Mechanics.
CHEMISTRY:
  • Organic Chemistry – General organic chemistry, biochemistry.
  • Physical Chemistry – Chemical & ionic equilibrium, kinetics energetic, radio, nuclear and surface chemistry.
  • Inorganic Chemistry – Analytical chemistry, redox, stochiometry, periodic properties, chemical bonding and organo metallic compounds.
BIOLOGY:
  • Cell Biology – Structure, organization, function of reproduction of cells, cellular enzymes.
  • Plant and Animal Physiology – Plant water relations, photosynthesis, plant nutrition, respiration, nutrition, circulation, respiration & osmo-regulation in animals, nervous coordination and integration in animals, chemical co- ordination.
  • Economic Zoology – Domestication and improvement of animals.
  • These biology chapters help you solve tricky and simple questions: Systematic, genetics, morphology of flowering plants, internal structure of angiosperm in plants, animal tissues, and reproduction of flowering plants, ecosystem, biodiversity, human diseases and technology for medical application, bio-energy and growth of human population.
Time management
1. Align your biological clock by practicing mock tests within the stimulated time for PMT. Remember: practice makes perfect!
2. While answering your exam, go for the direct questions i.e. the questions, which are directly based on the topic, first.
3. Tackle all questions you are sure of answering, correctly. Guessing will not help due to negative marking. For each incorrect response, one third of the total marks allotted to the question will be deducted.
However, no deduction from the total score will be made if no response is indicated in the answer sheet. More than one answer indicated against a question will be deemed as incorrect response and will be negatively marked.
What to study?
This is one of the most frequently asked question , which book should we read for preparing  for PMT Entrance test??
Here I am placing a list of few books which will be very help full in cracking AIPMT 2010.
BIOLOGY BOOKS:-
  • Firstly, the most imp., stick to NCERT! Believe me people it is a must before considering any other book…
  • Secondly, once  you have gone through the NCERT. The book you must read is Truemans Elementary Biology!!! A great book for cracking any PMT exam, AIPMT, UPMT, AIIMS.
  • Thirdly, after reading these books your basics must have been all-clear. Now what you need is to test yourself…so take any objective question bank and test yourself..
  • And Lastly, take previous year question papers and go through them! They are must! The following book provides you with 22 year question papers of AIPMT and that also chapter wise!



PHYSICS and CHEMISTRY BOOKS:-
  • Firstly, NCERT
  • Secondly, Dinesh Subjective Physics and chemisrty
  • Thirdly – Any objective question bank for both physic and chemistry. Though I prefer Dinesh publications only..
  • Finally, Previous year question papers [MUST]

CAN'T CONCENTRATE ON STUDIES

Imagine this situation …
while studying you are not able to concentrate...Your mind starts wandering of everything except studies...Whatever you read everything bounces of your mind.
This problem is with everyone. If you haven’t faced the above situation you will surely face it.
Here I provide the best technique which will help you to concentrate on studies.
I applied the following trick on myself and many others have tried it. The response is always positive
If you guys have problem with movies, games, ...Etc and you just cannot control yourself then …
For a week just control yourself. Just for a week make up your mind and be rock rigid that you will not watch TV or play computer games and study 12 hours or more just for 1 week.
And if you can do it honestly and study for 12 hours a day without watching TV and others distractive things then believe me, from the 8th day onwards all your problems will be solved.
From the 8th day when you will sit to watch TV and you are not studying than you will feel the guilt and you will be automatically forced to study.
Try it out guys…Just for 1 week...if it works again like every time don’t forget to inform me

LOSS IN SELF CONFIDENCE

This is a common problem faced by many students who are seriously into studies.
If you are lacking on confidence then it’s sometimes very tough to prepare for exams like AIIMS,AIPMT etc as confidence plays a major role in clearing these exams.

Stop Looking at Others:
So here I jot down some of the ways to increase your confidence.

First of all stop looking at your friends, what they are doing. Until and unless you are not aiming for AIR 1 you should not worry if someone is performing better than you. After all you have to capture only one seat not all.

How to Gain Confidence?
To gain confidence first you have to learn all formulae’s and understand the basic concepts .Then start with understanding solved examples. This will help you to get an insight as well as lot of confidence.
Don't Waste Your Precious Time:
Once again stop looking at others .This is a major mistake done by others. Most of the students spend lot of their precious time thinking about what others are doing.How much they have completed. blah blah.....Don’t do that please.
If you have any problems regarding your confidence you can post in the comment box. I will try to solve it.

Believe in yourself ... You can do it...

Best of luck.......................................................               M.RAVI TEJA, LECTURER IN BOTANY
