Academic Counselling Cell

Academic Counselling Cell

It takes Courage to ask for help

Beginning one's life at college involves the making a very important transition. There are opportunities to be taken and challenges to be met, all while adjusting to change. We at the counseling cell understand that everyone needs to be listened to at some time in their life. We want to be there for students who need a listening ear.
The cell comprises about 25 faculty members with experience in mentoring students, two profession counselors who visit the campus on a monthly basis and also student mentors. To voluntarily contact a mentor please email and make an appointment. Details are given in the Members link. Visit to professional counselors can also be made by email, and their availability is communicated by root mail each month.
These provisions are absolutely confidential and completely free of cost for the student.


Preparation Tips for exams from the Prof themselves! 
Dr. Virendra Singh Shekhawat i) Solve previous sems question papers (at-least last two sems) ii) Read text book iii) Approach your instructor and/or your friends for doubts
Dr. Paritosh Shukla Talk to your instructor; go through previous question papers; prioritize your topics; discuss with your classmates; take slow deep breaths during the exam
Dr. Murali Monohar Pandey In semester pattern education.....especially in a continuous evaluation should keep in pace with the classes…this would reduce the load of study during exams to a great extent
Dr. Surekha Bhanot Revise all tut problems, read text, reference book(s), mark important points, write important formulas, take care of units, write legibly, to the point . See last 3-4 years papers, attempt first the questions which you know for sure even if they carry less marks, read the Q paper very carefully, find time for 15-20 minutes workout in fresh air, Drink lot of water, no heavy meals, Breathe deeply
Dr. Sangeeta Sharma Start your preparation seriously and as early as possible. Focus on what was done in class. If you were absent then find out from the friends whom you trust.
Dr. Sailaja Nandigama 1. Think from the IC's perspective, and prepare selectively if you have less preparatory time at your disposal: put yourself in Instructor's shoes and prepare a model Question paper, and that will solve majority of your issues- if any. 2. If you have sufficient preparatory time at your disposal, you may want to browse through all the required topics in your syllabus. 3. Sit in groups with your sensible friends and explain to each other; listening to understand the concepts helps in answering your questions well.
Dr. Priya C Sande Whatever portions you study, do it thoroughly, giving thought to concepts and ideas. Make study cards for equations/ summary of concepts and revise theses at the end.

Being an Alumni of BITS Pilani, he was on the same wavelength as the students, and the talk was a mix of humour and life’s learnings. The crowd roared with enthusiasm, and the NAB Audi was packed to full capacity! Fun and fact in one talk, and the students were encouraged!
