How do I cope with family pressure while preparing for JEE?
Option one: study so hard that you don’t have time for things
like stress or talk to anyone who would pressure you. And if you
really study that hard, you are bound to clear JEE advanced.
Now I will tell you that in most cases this pressure comes from Now
it’s sad that in India students want to study at IITs not because they
want to study engineering intentionally but because it’s cool and
they want respect and recognition from their relatives and neighbors.
So basically they’re not putting pressure on you, but you’ve created a
scenario for yourself where if you fail, you won’t get respect and
you won’t be recognized. Which is actually not true. Now there are
also cases where family members pressure their child because they
think it will make you study more.
Now pressure is healthy to some extent when you are studying but
when the exam is coming up it will only be bad. So understand this
and make your family members also understand that you will only
be able to give your best if you do it with a free mind. And they will
understand and stop pressuring you.
