Aug 28, 2020 7 mins read

I know it's common among all of us. We all make mistakes, and it's not a big deal because everyone is tend to make mistakes as mistakes are part of learning.

I am not going to discuss the solution for errors that you have produced in your life because I have nothing to do with your life? Plus we all have a different life with different problems.

Here in this post, I am only going to talk about the mistakes that we usually make in our school and mainly in class 11th and class 12th.

If you have made any mistakes in your class11th and class 12th you can discuss them in the comments below.

Let's starts;

class 12th

After clearing class 10th with good grades, the next challenge we face is to choose a correct stream for ourselves, from the three most common streams.

  1. Arts.
  2. Commerce.
  3. Science.

This is one of the most challenging things because most of the times, we make a wrong decision while selecting a stream.
Furthermore, if you choose wrong, then everything turns against you, which later results in struggling with that subject or just wanting to change that subject, which is kind of robust process and waste a lot of time and even puts pressure on your mind.
Apart from selecting the wrong stream, there are so many other mistakes students make in class 11th and class 12th.
These are as follows;

  1. Students lack proper guidance.
  2. Unstable decisions.
  3. Goal Shifting.
  4. Try to get involved in unnecessary things.
  5. Joining expensive coaching for nothing.
  6. Students also follow the mob mentality. Let's discuss all.

1. Students lack proper guidance.

Commonly, students always get misguided by so-called seniors also by their parents because they all try to push their fads on students.
Because of that, students never able to decide what they want to do with themselves and starts taking pressure simply because they don't have any idea about; How to deal with these so-called wishes of their parents.
Furthermore, They never get to choose according to their will, even the subjects they choose to read in class 11th are suggested by someone Or they choose that subjects because they don't have any clue about other subjects.
I was the same with me. I never thought about taking commerce and arts as my subject, only because I never had a clue about these subjects.
So, what they need to do?
They only things they need to do is, just choose subjects for which you're curious also you score high in that subject with fewer efforts.
Which simply means subject you feel easy for you to handle or deal with.
So that your studies will remain a piece of cake for you, instead of being a pain in the neck.

2. Unstable decisions.

It's only because students lack information which is needed for taking proper decisions. As I have explained above, I never had an idea of commerce and arts, that's why I opt for science.
And this happens with almost every student.
What kind of information students lack?
Information related to competitive exams and how many types of competition exams are there and for which one they should prepare and what are requirements.
How many options they have after class 12th, to go with, other than Engineering, IIT, NIT, Doctors. Etc. What other things they can do in their life.
They never have a clue of Courses they can pursue after class 12th plus colleges with low fee structure because everyone doesn't have the privilege to afford expensive colleges.
All necessary things which are required for taking an accurate decision must be known by students, simply because it's significant for them.
Also, information is an essential raw material needed for making sound decisions.
So if you're a student, then you must gain more and more knowledge related to stuff that you intend to do in future because by proper knowledge you can remove barriers from your path.

3. Goal Shifting.

As you know that we start from big goals like becoming a pilot and or even becoming a scientist which later start sinking with time and end up to seeking any job.
Why this happens with students?
This happens because of our education system, and it's policies, back then, or even now our education system if not so flexible.
Because of our education system is concrete presently; students with time starts getting depressed because they don't know how to deal with stuff and reach where they aspire to reach.
In the same way, only 50% of students who have good and supportive family able to chase their dreams rest just compromise with their dreams and drop the idea of chasing their dream or goal.
There are so many reasons behind it; sometimes it's because of the family reasons, sometimes because of the personal reasons, and many times only because of self-created problems due to lack of info and not having a proper idea of what to do or what not to do?
It's hard to completely take 100% accurate decisions because you never know what life is going to throw at you, but when you have a good amount of information you can take better decisions plus it will also keep you focus you on your goal.
Furthermore, goal shifting arises because you never decide your goal according to you, most of the times it's the exaggeration of others goal or copied from someone else, Whom you admire or believe he's successful according to things he has in his life.
And most of the times your idea of success is entirely wrong because you are adding inaccurate information to your brain.
Which in future, become a source of your concepts from which you'll pick a goal for yourself.
Furthermore, things always don't work the way we want them to work because situations of life are unpredictable and completely uncertain.
So, if you really want to achieve anything, then you must fix your goals and try to move into that direction only.
Fixing your goal will increase the chances of your success, even more, it will save your time and energy getting wasted on multiple useless things.

4. Getting involved in unnecessary things.

This happens when your hormones take charge of your body and result in the birth of an invisible thing, which is Ego.
When you have this ego thing in you, you just start getting distracted from your path, and you begin to get involved in unnecessary competition with your friends in your school and even in coaching institute where you study.  
Getting involved in unnecessary things only wastes your time plus it also fills your mind with stress and other emotions which distracts you from your goal.
Not only this Ego things also bring conflicts for you because you're not ready to compromise even though you're wrong.
So, you must take care of this thing because it happens with all students after learning a few things students start assuming themselves as the master of that subject. Which is kind of dangerous for them?
I hope it's clear for you.

5. Joining expensive coaching for nothing.

This is for those who join coaching without having a decent idea of what they really want to do?
Like many students don't want to do IIT but still, they enter coaching for preparing JEE, which is kind of insane because these coachings are too expensive.
If you're familiar with web series KOTA FACTORY than you may have a good idea of how these coaching really works?

10% students who really want to do IIT rest 90% midocore students are their financial supporters.

All these coachings are funded by students who are not interested in doing IIT, or their parents want them to do IIT.
These students always remain in confusion and fail to make proper decisions. And later ends up not clearing IIT, because of that, they sometimes take the wrong step to correct that previous step.
I think you're getting my point.

6. Students follow the mob mentality.

As you know that students at a young age never had a proper idea of what they want to do in the future or what they want to become?
So because of not knowing properly what to do or not to do they choose things which other people want to do or suggest them to do.
Which is kind of wrong because every student is unique and different. Plus everyone has other skills when it comes to life.
It was the same with me; Back then, I use to copy my friend's Goals when my teacher used to ask me Beta what do you want to become in future?
My reply to her was from listening to my friend's goals; If they say that they want to become a pilot, so was I because I had no clue about the future and even more I don't even have an idea of what my destiny is?
So I followed Mob mentality till my class 12th, and because of that, I end up taking science as my stream.
You can resonate if you're currently in class 11th or in class 12th.
This happens with all of us, we choose our subjects by looking at our friends because we don't have proper Data about the importance of stream and how to really choose a correct stream for ourselves.
That's why I am suggesting you gain proper knowledge before taking any decisions for yourself because they're going to affect you in future.

There are other small mistakes as well, which students make in class 11th and class 12th.

  1. Getting involved in relationships which are kind of not necessary at that point of their lives.
  2. Students ignore their parent's advice completely.
  3. Assuming yourself too knowledgeful without knowing the real facts and figures.
  4. Wasting to much time with friends and social media.
  5. Adding wrong addictions to life.

I am not explaining the above mistakes because they are relatable and everyone can get
