Exams Approach-eth!

The problem with introducing anything new in the program is that all kids want to be part of it, even if it is not meant for them! So when we started with the one-to-one tutorials with Doon School boys, we saw all kids wanting to study there! Apparently, they did not care that they were doing just fine at school and that they really do not need extra coaching and attention.

We were scared that by putting a few children aside and working individually with them, we would make them feel inadequate but turns out, everybody wants to be enrolled in the one-to-one classes! So the kids walk in with ┬átheir registers and well-rehearsed “Oh, English mein problem hai” or “Exams aa rahe hain, BODMAS nahi aata”!

But as happens with everything new, well it becomes routine and now the kids are all settled into their own classes and working towards the big bad D-Day, which is 14th March and which is the day that their final exams at school begin. There is extensive revision happening in the bigger classes now and the older kids have to sit with teachers, sort out their problems and clear their doubts even on Saturdays when the younger kids paint.
