An appreciation for IT@School team at the Kerala State Youth Festival 2015

പരീക്ഷയുമായി ബന്ധപ്പെട്ട പോസ്റ്റുകൾ ആണ് ഈ സമയം ഏറ്റവും ആവശ്യമുള്ളത് എന്നറിയാം. എങ്കിലും ഈ കത്ത് പ്രസിദ്ധീകരിക്കാതിരിക്കാതെ തരമില്ല. അത്രയ്ക്ക് സന്തോഷം തോന്നുന്നു....
Dear Sir/Madam,
                           Consider myself as a media enthusiast and a public spirited person apart from being an advocate. I am writing this email to appreciate the efforts put in by the IT@School team at the State Youth Festival. As i got to know about the Government's arrangements to bring the updates and the live coverage of the festival through online and visual media, I did not expect anything more than an erratic, stale and obsolete website or a channel relay. But throwing all my beliefs and expectations to the wrong basket, the team that handled the website , the Victers channel and live streaming of the website, outperformed in their duties. I realise the hard work and manpower the team would have spent to bring accurate as well as prompt information when time demanded. I should admit that it is a herculean task to co-ordinate between the venues and the timings but, I was wonder-struck finding that the timings that were updated in the website were accurate information from the venues.
Being a person who hails from Kozhikode , I was able to witness a few competitions from certain venues as well. The big display screens were all so comfortable for the viewers and not even single glitch was reported in these public displays. Being a patron of Calicut, I felt that the city did not well accord its gratitude towards the IT@school team. Nor did I see the newspapers and visual media acknowledging these efforts.
However, I would like to express my sincere and heartfelt gratitude towards IT@School team that managed the 'School Kalolsavam', in a very admirable way. It is sad to see that such efforts are left unnoticed by the news craving media. I once again congratulate the Kalolsavam team that made the Event joyous and more colourful.
With prayers and a 1000 cheers to the team.

Get - Set - Go ---------->> SSLC 2015

Dear children, parents and teachers
Happy X'mas & New Year

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way

Yes, its the time for fun and frolic. Enjoy it to the brim !!!

The Christmas season is a busy time of the year when thoughts turn to celebrations. With exams at Christmas, students can complete the exams and have time to enjoy a relaxing break with a fresh start to look forward to in the new year as they eagerly wait for a public examination that decides the future.

The SSLC exam is 12 weeks away... Of course a turning point in one's life..

A proper guidance and advice will definitely help you to achieve the goal.

What are your expectations for these exams ?

When do you plan to begin studying ?

How will you study and how much will you study?

Does more study mean higher grades?

Shall we discuss ?
Studying is only one of the parts in the preparation to get good marks in the exam. No matter how hard you study, as a student if you don't know how to go about preparing or taking the exam, you will not be able to achieve as much as you want.

First step in preparation of the exam is to know how important the examination is to you based on the course you are going to pursue.

       The difference between students who score 100% and students who score in a band of 90 to 100 is the silly errors committed by them in the exam. Errors in Maths such as ‘+’ in place of ‘-‘, numbers not written properly, end not finished properly etc., spelling/grammatical errors in English. In terms of intelligent level and understanding level there may not be any difference between students who score 100% and the students who score 80%. The real difference between them is in their study methodology or the way they practice studies.

    The parents play a very significant role in the student’s achievements. Out of 10 students who score 100%, 9 have their parents behind them. The home ambiance is one of the most important aspects in the student’s performance. It is absolute commitment and self belief, self motivation and sense of responsibility, and the sense of feeling that their life depends on education. They naturally adapt right methodology, which includes learning the lessons properly. She/he will not blame anyone or anything but will keep their focus on studies, they are passionate, obsessed, they are on a mission and not just on another assignment. Once if every student gets that feeling, surely she/he will score 100%.

To Parents

One of the parents should be at home when the child returns from the school, taking care of the child's needs – proper healthy food that the child likes. Encourage the child to sleep well, at least for a minimum of 6 continuous hours. Encourage them to play at least one hour in the evening, to relax for at least half an hour every two hours. Inculcate meditating practice – just half a minute before every time the child starts to study and leaves the study. Like the computer, human brain needs to be properly opened and closed for effective intake.

     Discourage TV viewing as it is a major deterrent, like virus in the computer. TV, being a strong medium, will rust the information stored in the brain for the purpose of exam. Parent must not also watch TV when the child is studying in the house. During exam time do not be behind them asking questions. More importantly you need to be available to the child as a resource, be there to clarify their questions. Primary responsibility of the parent is to create and make the right resources available to the child in their pursuit of knowledge or effective learning. In normal circumstances, encourage the child to make the best use of the resources available in the school such as Teachers, libraries etc. Teachers are experts, discuss with them about your child and right study methodology for him/her.
To students

Focus on learning. Do not mug up or stuff.

       Your focus should be in learning and understanding the subject. List out all your doubts in a subject – get them clarified with your school teacher or your parents or expert in the subject. Go para by para in your text book. There should not be anything that you are not able to explain. Organize Cooperative learning – take classes to others in rotation- as you explain your understanding level will go up – Questions should be asked by others. Then practice – writing - as many times as possible. Always understand the subject, familiarize and understand the meaning of key words. Practice all problems, Formulae, definitions, as many times as possible. More you practice [writing], less errors will you commit in the exam. Basically there should not be any problem in the book that you are not able to solve. If you are thorough with your book, 70% is assured. In the 30 days before the exam time, you should be obsessed with your studies, nothing else should matter to you.
     Have a study time table convenient to you – that should include eating time, sleeping time and play time. Be careful about what you eat. Eat less; do not over eat. Before you start and close the studies, meditate to get into the mood and to get out safely. Otherwise, like you would lose files when you close the computer wrongly, part of what you studied in the end will get erased or become hazy.



Leave the child alone. Be there like a caretaker; attend immediately to their calls for water, tea or milk, food etc., never speak anything negative.


At least two days before the starting of the exams make a checklist of the implements required and ensure you have them- pencils, pens in spare.
On the day of the exam, get up a little late than usual, be cool, check the implements.

Go to the exam hall just before the time – do not look into the book.
During exam times – do not study through the night – you may get blocked out when you sit in the exam hall. Once you get ready write answers.
Only revise what you have studied- do not take up any new subject.
After each exam, relax, have a nap, do not worry too much about the mistakes you have committed in the exam and check your implements for the next day – put them in a bag that you carry daily – so that you will not have to waste time before going to the exam and get tensed if something is found not alright.

In the Exam hall

  • Be cool – listen to the instructions carefully – take time to read the question paper carefully, understand the instructions and then start to write.

  • Bring at least two pens/pencils with good erasers, a calculator with enough batteries and any other resources that your instructor allows you to.

  • Bring a watch with you so that you can better pace yourself.

  • Stay positive throughout the whole exam and try to stay relaxed. If you start to feel nervous take a few deep breaths to relax.

  • Keep your eyes on your own paper, you don't want to appear to be cheating and cause unnecessary trouble for yourself.

  • Do the easiest problems first. Don't stay on a problem that you are stuck on especially when time is a factor.

  • Do the problems that have the greatest point values first.

  • Don't rush but pace yourself. Read the entire question and look for keywords.

  • Write legibly. If the grader can't read what you wrote, they'll most likely mark it wrong.

  • Always read the whole question carefully. Don't make assumptions about what the question might be.

  • If you don't know an answer, skip it. Go on with the rest of the test and come back to it later. Other parts of the test may have some information that will help you out with that question.

  • Don't worry if others finish before you. Focus on the test in front of you.

  • If you have time left when you are finished, look over your test. Make sure that you have answered all the questions, only change an answer if you misread or misinterpreted the question because the first answer that you put is usually the correct one. Watch out for careless mistakes and proofread your essay and/or short answer questions.

  • Most importantly it has to come from within you, a hunger for achievement. The sense of responsibility that you are writing the exam and getting good marks is for you. Take it as training. There are much bigger things waiting for you.
This exam is the first step in your life - a trial. Take the first step firmly; you can climb other steps in the life ladder easily.

All the best
