i am confused

i have just gone to class 11 this April , i want to give JEE so i have also joined a coaching institute. now my coaching institute is super fast and i am not at all able to keep pace with chemistry as well as some part of physics(i am also not enjoying while studying them specially chemistry )even though i am loving maths there . due to this i am not able to build my concepts properly. now even i don't want to change my batch in my coaching as it has the best faculty and also since i am not clear with my previous concepts i am not able to cope up with the new topics that are taught now . i want to crack JEE and exams such as KVPY and RMO but if this continues i am sure i wont be able to crack them .i am thinking if i could study physics and chemistry in my school or on my own and would go for maths to the same coaching. would this be beneficial ?? also if i want to get into foreign colleges like MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) what is required? is it better than IIT . also i have my interest in mathematics and want to do engineering what shall i do???

I would suggest you one thing, please don't think diversely... Just try to concentrate on one thing. I guess you are facing problem in chemistry because of mole concept :D... That chapter requires better understanding but don't worry at the end you will be okay with it. And please, never ever try to speed up your pace... That's the worst thing you can do at this time. Be in your own limits, there may be someone in your batch who can play guitar and maybe be you can't. So stay in your limits and trust me if you will work hard, you can achieve anything. Getting into MIT is a different thing. For that you should have excellent profile which constitutes your academic records, extracurricular activities, leadership qualities, community work(like NGO) and your standardized test scores like : SAT, SAT SUBJECT TEST, TOEFL. And as i have appeared for both, these tests are tremendously easier than iitjee, all you need is better understanding of language. Good luck :-) Kïñshük Sïñgh · 2 years, 1 month ago

Your dreams are quite big I believe but dont worry too much just keep on focussing on the basics. If you still cant go on forget whatever they teach you under the name of kvpy. For it you can take a 3 week leave from school and study hard. Good mathematics that you possess will surely help in it.Are Mole concept and atomic structure troubling you.

@Satvik Choudhary mole concept atomic structure, and chemical bonding are troubling me a lot Avn Bha · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Avn Bha try to get resonance sheet of chemical bonding ! it will be a great help. Anukriti Singh · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Avn Bha I think the main problem is that you are kind of mathematical guy who does not accept things easily so maybe you need to be more flexible in your approach. As i promised you the tips here are they

  1. Do basic questions first which require conversions of moles into grams and so on.

2.Then go for basic questions of molarity and normality, equivalents etc.

4.Do not start new topic unless you are confident with the previous one.As well said in the above note you need to slow down your pace a bit.In class 11 things are sometimes quite different so it may take some time for you to understand them so dont panic.

  1. Now after you have done your basics you can go for some higher level problems. I think P Bahadur Numerical Chemistry is the best for problems.

7.Last but not the least dont just start doing calculations as you see the question ( it was a mistake which i did and do even now sometimes, advising is certainly easy than following it) understand what the question wants see what is given and what is asked and which formulas and methods you can use to get it.

Meet your coaching faculty they will surely understand the problem better.

You can contact Ronak Agarwal on brilliant i believe he's the best for you to take some advice.

Atomic structure and chemical bonding are relatively easy. Which parts are troubling you the most? Satvik Choudhary · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Satvik Choudhary so shall i change my coaching institute in order to slow my pace because they are moving quite fast . i was also thinking if i could join a kind of private classes where they prepare for JEE and start over building my concepts again, but at the same time i am loving math at my coaching ?? so shall i stay in the institute or shall i leave that's my confusion??

@Avn Bha A suggestion...

Just follow your institute religiously,you will get used to the pace very soon. And as for the private tuition, believe me, you wont have time to cope up even with your own institute,let alone an extra tuition. Pankaj Joshi · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Satvik Choudhary Any help on chemical bonding...... Shivam Hinduja · 2 years, 1 month ago

Log in to reply

@Shivam Hinduja Chemical bonding is a really vast topic.I did it drom 3 books. 1 ncert 2. Jd lee 3 solomons and fryhle and still iam not even 90% sure about it. But these 2 books have 1 or more topics on it and are very helpful. Hope you find it useful. Satvik Choudhary · 2 years, 1 month ago

this problem is faced by many, including me ! but what i think is that you should not discontinue phy and chem coaching because there are many topics and concept which only expert teachers can teach us. If you don't understand the things on the same day then you need to practise and read more, and clear your doubts in a day or two, this will help you alot. All the best :) Anukriti Singh · 2 years, 1 month ago

I respect every field, but I want you to pursue mathematics and carry out research in it, The world needs you! Swapnil Das · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Swapnil Das so what shall i do to pursue it ? i mean which college shall i join ? how shall i plan my future? Avn Bha · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Avn Bha As far as research is concerned, IISc, CMI, and ISI are some of the best institutes in India...And for more info, you have your friend Google. Pankaj Joshi · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Avn Bha Well I am also an aspiring Mathematician and Physicist. Swapnil Das · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Avn Bha Start doing research in it at an early age. Swapnil Das · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Avn Bha I suggest you to join IISc or IIT ( It has produced many mathematicians!) Swapnil Das · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Swapnil Das You are right . there is a need for more mathematicians and mathematics research in India. However the best mathematics department in the world is of Princeton University Sriram Venkatesan · 2 years, 1 month ago

@Sriram Venkatesan The departments become best, only because of their mathematicians, not their facilities, remember. Swapnil Das · 2 years, 1 month ago
