5 things to do if you couldn't clear your JEE Main

28Sep,2018
By Namrata Padhi

From an early age, we start setting our goals and start dreaming about life after our achievement. Little do we realize back then, what will we do if we fail to achieve the same. We never tend to make a backup plan for ourselves and land up feeling demoralized or dejected at the end.

The JEE Main results were just announced and around 2 lakh students cleared the exam out of 14 lakh candidates who had appeared for it all over the country. This means that around 12 lakh candidates did not clear JEE Main. If you are one of the 12 lakh candidates who failed to qualify JEE Main this year, there is absolutely nothing to be dejected about! With the increase in the percentage of the reservation quota, it has become even more difficult for the students belonging to the general category to clear their Mains with a good percentage. Today, there is a wide variety of options available for you even if you fail to crack your JEE-Mains.

 

Some solutions to cheer you up are:

1. Was it actually your dream that you have failed to achieve?

 Ask yourself if engineering is your passion and if you gave everything into this. If you did and it still didn't work out, focus on your other college options. Stick to your passion for studying engineering rather than moping about losing out on the top college dream. Yes, we learn the same from the Indian Blockbuster "3 Idiots".

If on the other hand, this WAS NOT your passion, and instead of your parents' order, rest assured that you have tried your best to make your future all about them and failed. So, take a deep breath and relax, because you just dodged the typical Indian parent induced this-job-is-not-for-me bullet. I will use Youtube's slogan and refer you to work towards your passion and make it into profit. 

 

Career Prospects beyond Medical and Engineering

 

2. Other entrance exams you can opt for:

Not clearing JEE Mains is not the end of the world. Other entrance exams such as BITSATWBJEE, COMEDK, and VITEEE are yet to be held to get into the best private engineering colleges in the country. Concentrate on these rather than feeling low and fussing about JEE Main. Also, make sure you prepare yourself for the counselling processes in private universities.

3. Non-engineering options  to establish a good career:

 As a Science student, there are other study areas where the course material would be quite similar to engineering. You can study Economics, Statistics or Mathematics.

Apart from these science subjects, there are other careers you could choose such as actuarial sciences, management, marketing research, operational research, or banking. You can also opt for medical provided you had biology too as a subject in your 12th. 

In this technology-obsessed world where big data is a treasure trove, data analysts and data statisticians are a big requirement for companies all over the world.

Moreover, you always have the option of turning towards the prestigious civil services if you have it in you to take up administrative helms. The civil services exams in India are very tough; be warned that you will need a thorough knowledge of current affairs, and the history and geography of the nation to crack these.

4. You can be an employer instead of an employee:

With the gradually changing times, many IIT achievers have taken a forward step to start their work as an entrepreneur and fulfill their dreams. With the rising population, India is still facing a great job crunch which could do away with whatever benefits we hoped to get from our demographic dividend (a time when the average population's age in a country is low resulting in rising economy). India has an average age of just 29 in 2020.

If you think you have an idea that could benefit society, use your skills to turn it into a reality. Being a job-creating entrepreneur could be an extremely challenging, yet rewarding experience. The Indian Govt has come up with schemes to help startups and young entrepreneurs. 

 

5. If you still unable to forget IIT:

If getting into one of the IITs means everything to you, if your entire life has been building up to this moment, then not being able to crack the JEE Main can feel like a crushing disaster. But chances are, you feel like this because of the way your mind was modulated from a young age into thinking that this is the only option you have. You can always go for the other choices you have for world-class engineering education.

But at times, our heart refuses to listen to reason, doesn't it?

In that case, you can take a drop year and prepare for JEE with a fresh mind and perhaps newer and fresher strategies. People are divided on the option of dropping a year. Others prefer to take admission in some college and continue their JEE preparations while enrolled there.

With the changing job market now and the rising prominence of startups, it is a lesser taboo now to not crack JEE Main than it was around 5-10 years ago. But the number of coaching centres promising a seat in one of the IITs has also risen. This makes every parent (and even candidates) feel that everyone is capable of cracking the JEE Main.

The pressure that parents create on students cracks their mind when they fail to crack the entrance exam. Many take the path of ending their own lives, and it is not a surprise because when your brain is that pressurized, it simply doesn't work properly.

Conclusion

So, don't let yourself feel low or dejected as this is not the end of the world. Take a time-out and look through the other paths you can take if you fail to crack JEE Main. There are a large number of other options where you can make it big and truly grow as a human instead of obsessing about the IIT tag.  Always remember, there are many brilliant people doing incredible things in the world, and barely a tiny handful of them studied in any IIT! Put your heart in what you do and nothing can stop you from succeeding. Only hard work and determination defines your success in life.
