Every year, most of the students worldwide repeat the same mistake of not preparing well for their exams. Some of them say that this time, it’s going to be different. They are going to stay on top of everything, color codes all their notes and never leave anything to the last minute. But, in reality, that never happens.
If you are in the final year of your college, chances are that placement season is about to start or it has already begun. Like everyone else, you are also excited, you don’t want to miss the opportunity. Be it in canteen or class, all conversations are now geared towards placements. Which firms are coming? Which are not? Will your favorite firm do a repeat this year? Debates are on about the best and the rest. Startup or PSU? Core or non-core? However, all said and done, surveys say 80% of students simply fail in campus placement tests or competitive exams. Below are reasons why students fail and what you can do about it.
“Practice makes a man perfect”, we all know this and try following it. But no one exactly knows what the best practice is!
Every student has to go through the campus recruitment drives that are conducted by various companies. The drive provides the student an opportunity to get placed in their choice of company. Most of the companies conduct aptitude test as one of their interview rounds. To get through the companies the students have to prepare themselves adequately and make sure that they put their best effort.
Practice can be deemed as the one GAP students have to close between themselves and their goals and it is extremely important, besides planned actions. We can refer practice as the breakaway strategy that ultimately creates a difference in students’ lives to being mediocre, good, and excellent. Take an example of the 2015 IIT JEE exam. Out of 124,741 candidates registered for the exam, only 26,456 barely managed to clear the exam – which shows that the generated results are not that great. Let’s brood on why this happened and analyze the results further. The foremost reason for this can be two things:
Uncovering the success story behind Vignan’s Institute of Information Technology on how it doubled its placement conversion rates in 2015.
Vignan Institute of Information Technology always gives high importance to training and placements to help students clear campus tests and guide them on the path to a successful career. In 2015, it had a training program in place, which was an addition to their regular syllabus to prepare students for big placement events. Even though the training program was considerably good, the college management couldn’t notice any significant surge in placement numbers. This was when they found that they needed something to judge the efficacy of the training program. They felt that there was a need for a focussed approach that can help judge the skills of students and at the same time provide a detailed overview on what areas they will need to improve on for achieving the best results. Soon after, Vignan came to hear of EPracto, the team at EPracto approached Vignan to help them out in this regard.
