I am about to be a graduate in psychology. i want to do my masters in rural management from an institute called IRMA,anand. However the admission criteria requires me to have a valid CAT score. But my weak point has always been maths and that is holding me back from even attempting the CAT. it’s not that i have always failed in maths i have been an average scorer, i have managed to get around 60s and 70s most of the time. but i somehow feel that i am incapable of doing well in maths. not only that i am also very perplexed about studying outside kolkata. i feel i won’t be able to manage though i have never admitted this to my parents or anybody else for that matter. this fear held me back from studying in delhi for my undergradute studies even though i had the necessary marks. Moreover i always feel that i am not smart enough even though there have been situations which i have handled pretty well.I just do not feel satisfied with my achievements no matter how big they are. I feel there is a huge gap between my real and ideal self. Others view me as a very helpful girl but that does not make me feel proud of myself. Also i am an introvert by nature, however i have managed to get out of my shelf and now i interact with people more than i did during my school days. i have changed a lot but i want to be more independent, smart and confident. Also should i attempt the management entrance exam?April 26, 2014 at 3:58 pm #15419
Yes , you should attempt the management entrance exam, you know what , you will easily do it, you have been successful in so many fields hence there is nothing wrong with you, I am sure you also will agree with me that to be successful one has to have faith in himself, so here is the medicine for your problem, you only and purely need to just accept the fact that as you have succeeded till now , hence “why should I not give a try for entrance exams also, nothing wrong even i dont click, atleast i will be satisfied that I made an attempt”, this approach I am telling you to take only and only for the sake of developing that faith in yourself because anyway you are going to get through, now regarding maths as you said you are not that good, see I am not a professional in any particular subject, but I 100% do know that maths is a subject of practice and practice and practice, and that too written practice, am i right?, so thats it, stick to practicing maths , keep on solving the problems in written form, I mean not verbally, a person like you who can achieve 60-70% as you said, you think this is small enough, no dear, not at all, just go ahead, my only one condition is definitely hard work which you will definitely do I am sure, and rest leave it on God, now regarding you being an introvert, the first step, stop labeling yourself , that I am an introvert, I am shy, I dont have the guts etc etc, what made you thought that your these assumptions are right?, so stop labeling yourself, and why , why on earth you want to give so much importance to this tag “introvert”, drop it completely right not you know why because even being an introvert is absolutely nothing wrong, thats a nature of a person, some are extrovert and some introvert, dont copy others and change your nature, be firm in your originality, beng an extrovert has nothing to do with being “smart”, even a person as introvert can be smart, i hope you got what I am actually trying to make you understand, you said you have managed to get out of the shell, dont force yourself to get out or get in any particular kind of a personality, because you are already having your original personality and which is fantastic, but because you guys start labeling it with such terms as “Introvert”, “Extrovert”, “Shy”. “Independent” etc etc the problem arises, you are already independent, smart, but your nature must have drawn a line which not to cross over, but that is not to be termed as shy, introvert etc etc, hope you got it. You are an intelligent person ,good in studies, helpful to others, smart enough to having set your boundaries, you are independent so what more you need. Add up only this much – Hard work in maths and if possible half hour anything like meditation or visit a temple, or even just remain completely with your own self, nothing more you need to do, all the best and go ahead.
