Is there any difference between what I thought of the IITs and what I found when I got into one? Did I get any cultural shock or surprised after joining IIT?
First of all I should say that IIT is the best thing happened to me and I don’t have any regrets. 🙂
This is a guest post by Nikhil Vanjani (IIT Kanpur).
My Experience After Getting into IIT
Before getting into IIT, I thought that it will be a place of academic excellence. But, after joining IIT, I realised that IIT also teaches us how to live our life.
Life at IIT :
- There is no bound on how to spend our time. IIT teaches us how to manage our freedom and decide our priorities.
- There are a lot of opportunities to learn whatever we want.
- There are many clubs for academics, extra-curricular activities and hobbies and above all, if you think that there must be some club X, then you can start it yourself at IIT Kanpur (my second home).
- There are both extremes of students from the ones who spend most of their time doing a variety of activities to those who study most of the time.
IIT Life after JEE Preparation
If I have to summarise those two years of IIT JEE preparations and these 4 years of IIT life then, it would be: Those two years of coaching taught me “How to study” and these four years in IIT are teaching me “How to live my life”.
