  1. Hi !
    I am appearing for Jee Exams in 2016.
    Till October, Preparation were going fine but then after i feel i am loosing my interest in studies.It is feeling so hectic to study.My parents and teachers have lots of Expectations as I secured 96.6 % in my 10th board Exams.
    Please help me!!!!

    • Hello Karan Vyas !
      It could be because of the pressure of exam. Don’t study by thinking that your parents have lots of expectations from you study because you want to. Your preparation is in your hand not your result. Try to chill out 1-2 days. Visit any new place, to your relative it might freshen your mind and then get back to study.
