Getting over your taking too much sleep !

I believe a majority of students preparing for exams in which they require to burn the midnight oil, to work hard and with dedication often complain about how their sleep conflicts with their preparation. Some common complaints are like – 

“I can’t get up till late at night. I feel sleepy”.
“It’s hard to get up for me. All I want when I see my bed is to sleep and relax”.
“I’ll take a nap of 5 minutes (and then the 5 minutes end up being 1-2 hours)”.

And remember, many students go through this dilemma regarding the life at new IITs, its campus, infrastructure, exposure etc. It’s obvious to be uncertain about a place you haven’t heard about much. So I decided to come up with something which may give you an insight into the life at newer IITs and also help you to get over with some myths (like not being as great as the old ones and that they are only taken by the low rankers )  prevalent about the newer IITs.  In 2008, 8 new IITs were established at Mandi, Indore, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur, Hyderabad, Gandhinagar, Patna and Ropar.
