The coronavirus pandemic lockdown not only brought the entire nation to a standstill but also put a halt to the dreams of many aspiring students looking forward to appearing in the major entrance exams such as JEE and NEET. Even with restrictions lifting in large parts of the country, educational institutions are instructed to remain closed.
If you are also looking forward to appearing in these entrance exams, instead of panicking and worrying too much, consider the current situation as a blessing in disguise and invest this time in strengthening your preparation. This lockdown can be a stepping stone towards a brighter tomorrow.
All you need to do is stay positive and utilize this extra time efficiently and judiciously to boost your preparation.

You can also balance your study time by studying from textbooks that will help limit your screen time. Apart from that, reduce your time on social networking apps and rather indulge in indoor physical activities such as yoga, meditation, etc. that will boost your health and well-being.
