Regular study for school or just a sprint before the exam?

An interesting comment I found here on Prepsera and this is something I think should have come to me as well. It is a pretty essential question and a dilemma faced by a lot many kids who are preparing for competitive exams. So, if I were you, this is what I would do…

Chrome and site not secure warnings

Hey guys, a few of you might have gotten a message from Google Chrome Web browser saying that prepsera.com is not secure. So, what does this mean for you?

  • The reason why this happens is because Google Chrome wants to enforce the use of https instead of http on the web. However, doing so demands payments for a SSL certificate.
  • Being as it may be, I do not earn any money from Prepsera. In fact, I might even be losing money over prepsera.com just for the base hosting and domain
  • As such, I would like to re-iterate that the website as such is secure and there are not malicious links or anything on it. The only thing is that I do not have funds to purchase a SSL certificate.
  • In order to improve your experience, I shall be porting prepsera.com over to a free wordpress domain (prepsera.wordpress.com) by the end of this year where it will stay hosted forever as an archive for you guys to use.
  • If anyone wants to keep Prepsera alive with new articles and stuff, you are welcome to give me your details (E-Mail ID) and I shall add you as a contributor to the blog.

That’ll be all for now. Also, here’s a shout out to a student who I and Mohit Ryan have been mentoring : She is Ritika and has managed to clear JEE with a rank of 163 and is not studying at IIT Bombay in CS department.

JEE Advanced Results 2018

How has been everyone’s performance so far? What marks and ranks have you scored?

All’s, do remember this… it’s how you have worked and how much you have enjoyed in the journey that matters and not the end result. So, for all those who have cleared it, that’s great but for all those who haven’t, don’t worry. It’s just an exam.

Have an amazing weekend!

What to do now that only 20 days are left for JEE Advanced?

I’ll cut to the chase here guys… Just don’t stress yourselves out in these days. On the other hand, don’t get too relaxed as well. Just try to keep your studies balanced.

It is these last 20 days in which I completed and managed to strengthen myself in the chapters that I was weak in :

  • Complex Numbers
  • Integration
  • Thermochemistry
  • Thermodynamics
  • Ionic Equilibrium
  • Comic Sections

Funny thing was that I completed my syllabus of these chapters in these last 20 days. Oh, and surprisingly, I scored the most marks in these very chapters… the chapters I was weakest in earlier, the chapters I finished just before JEE. And I lost marks mainly in the chapters I felt I was prepared the strongest in.

JEE type exams are a weird thing. Anything can happen. You’ll succeed by making your weaknesses your strengths, as I did. And it worked.

So just keep in mind that… don’t squander these days away. Use them but don’t stress out. It’ll be all fine.

All the best….
