Coming from BC and AD, we have entered into the era of
Pre-Covid and Post-Covid world. When safety becomes the topmost priority, should
education and academic excellence take a back-seat?Swinging like a pendulum in
lockdown, current crisis creates an opportunity in disguise.
90 percent of the humanity is monitoring the unfortunate situation
which WHO declared as “Pandemic”. Living amidsta gigantic educational crisis,
more than 1.6 billion children and youth in over 161 countries are out of
Adjusting and Adopting is the key to success.
The big question on everyone’s mind is how will Covid-19 affect student’s
academic performance, their ability to participate in extra-curriculum activities
andtheir dream to study overseas. It’s hard to speculate in this uncertain
environment but what can be assured that there are ways where studentscan use this time to
invest for a brighter future.
Academic – eLearning is the newcurriculum in the Covid
world.Almost all schools and
universities have suspended physical lessons andhave started with virtual
classes. Most universities have either defer examinations or
are conducting online tests. With time at their disposal and withgrowing number of free-certifiedonlinecourses
available at various platforms, students should use this opportunity to educate
themselves. Large number of language courses are also available tolearn.My
suggestion, make a study plan, enroll for one course at a time and don’t be
tempted to register for too many courses.
Extra-curriculum–with social distancing in play, extra-curriculum
activities need to be redefinedto boost and uplift candidate’s extracurricular profile. Now is the time to come out of the cocoon and channelize your creative genes
to follow your passion.You can be as innovative as inventing the next Bitcoin or
it can be anything from an atom to the ocean.My suggestion, start writing a
blog, paint, attend webinar sessions, computer programming, do whatever you
have been procrastinatingsince forever.
Applicants–it’s not unsafe to say that thecurrent scenario is most unsettling
for students seeking to study overseas. But always remember, the crisis is temporary but dreams are
forever. Use the time to put your best foot forward and dream bigger. Here are
some tips and tricks to do while under lockdown.
- There is no good
time or bad time to start planning. Do your research on about various universities and courses
offered. Narrow down the search with the help of an expert.
- Study for your standardized exam like
SAT, ACT, TOEFL, GMAT, GRE etc.
- Start working
on your statement of purpose, letter of recommendation.
- For all the
research applicants – start writing your research proposal.
- Be in constant touch with the universityyou
seek to take admission in. Since the situation is changing rapidly, what is
consideredvalid information today might become obsolete tomorrow.
will Covid-19 affect the long-term educational goals, is a question in itself.
What I can say with certainty is that time is the essence and once gone will
not come back. Use it to the best of your ability and to enhance your
future-self. Even in times when external forces are ruling us, carving one’s
productive path is in one’s hand.
