A self-paced study from the safety of home can be very useful for students who are preparing for entrance exams. In addition to saving the time ad effort involved in travel, it can allow students to focus sharply on their weak areas. While studying at home does require a certain basic level of discipline, but I am sure students will realize that the benefits far outnumber the challenges.

There are several advantages of online learning especially during a pandemic and the accompanying chaos. Here are some tips:  

  • Set aside dedicated time: Timetables and study schedules go a long way in inculcating discipline. Setting aside dedicated time for studying, whether it is to practice more questions or refreshing some concepts can be helpful. 

  • Self-paced learning: Self-paced learning means that students can complete their targets at any time and arrange a learning schedule that meets their individual needs.  

  • Practice makes perfect: A good way to do this usually is to attempt a test and then set aside more time to work on the deficient areas with a focused approach. Online resources offer students a lot of practice opportunities in the form of sample papers, topics tests, chapter-wise questions etc. that students can attempt to gain confidence. Backed by smart reports, students can gain valuable insights into their performance 

  • Comparison with peers: Particularly for competitive exam aspirants, opportunities to benchmark their performance against peers can indicate the level of their preparedness  

  • Make the most of the convenience and flexibility that online learning offers: Students need not ‘wait’ for school or tuition class the next day to seek help for their problems. With experts available 24x7, students can clear their doubts anytime
