Qualifying for IIT’s Data Science Program — Experience Sharing

  • Keeping aside the time for preparation was the first and foremost thing that helped me when it comes to writing the qualifier. I preferred early mornings to do this without much distractions.
  • RPR sir, my teacher had given me the most important tip to crack the qualifier. He said, take up the mock exams. This is the second most important thing which helped. The mock tests gives us an idea about the pattern of the exams upfront and most importantly, it gives us a feel of how to manage your time while writing the exams. The exams are lengthy. To ensure that you can attempt all the papers well, it is important to get a practice with the help of the mock exams.
  • The revision sessions conducted before the exams are helpful too. In my case, the only revision class that I attended was that of Maths. I had just managed to cover Maths portions just two or three days before the exams and it is the revision class that helped me ensure that I passed in Maths.
  • The bonus :) — A personal note. I always give the least priority when it comes to investing time on soft skills. IIT’s course helps lazy bundles like me. The course has one more subject in the course — English. And, for the first time in my life, I am loving to learn English as a subject.
