Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday amid Pariksha pe Charcha advised the students who will be giving Board Examinations to study for difficult topics first having a fresh mind, over making an attempt to solve the simpler ones first.
Prime Minister Modi while have an interaction via video conferencing with the teachers, students and parents during the fourth edition of Pariksha Pe Charcha said, “My view on studying easy topics first in the exams is slightly different. I think the most difficult part should be addressed with ‘fresh mind’ and this will make easy ones feel even easier.”
Modi added, “Take every subject with the same attitude and energy. I will ask students to equally distribute time. Give time to each subject, equally.”
He correlated examination with his tenure of Prime Minister and Chief Minister saying that he preferred to tackle difficult issues in the morning having a fresh mind.
PM asked, “I am sharing my experience when I became the Chief Minister, and later became the Prime Minister, I also had to read a lot, learn a lot. We have to learn from many people, we have to understand a lot of things. So what did I do about things that are difficult, whose decisions are a little serious?”
Interacting further, Modi further added, “I like to start my day with the hard things. The hardest things brought in front of me by my officers I grasp things fast and move towards making decisions. I have tried to make this a rule. The easier things are dealt with during the later part of the day, even while I am tired. I drag those things again till late at night. But, when I wake up in the morning, I have to fight hard again.”
PM Modi said it is not important to master all the subjects. He added, “Even those who are highly successful have a firm grasp over one specific subject.”
He termed this year’s Pariksha Pe Charcha as the first virtual edition, Modi said that COVID-19 has invoked many innovations and even though there is disappointment of not being able to have a face-to-face interaction, there should not be a break in Pariksha Pe Charcha this year.
