If you are doing BS, FSC or Matric then you are in the best place of your life. Want to get a scholarship in the future or get a degree from one of the best institutions in the world like Harvard and MIT? With a little ingenuity at this stage, you will be able to not only fulfill your dreams but also lead the world. but how?
Now, after doing my PhD, I have come to realize that the amount of time a student has to study in Matric, FSC or BS, is equal to the amount of time that is never available in life. First of all, try to stay in the top 5% in the course you are doing, that is, at the top in every case, ahead in the numbers and also in the understanding of the subject. The teacher will teach you to take numbers, but expand your circle to understand.
Remember that both are very important for moving forward, good marks and good understanding. Get help from online courses and YouTube. Listen to lectures from two or three teachers on the same subject. Suppose if you are doing biotechnology then try to do biotechnology course on coursera etc. from any of the best universities in the world. You have an idea of what is being taught in the rest of the world. Then you will be able to compete with them.
But even before that, try to improve your ability to read and write English. Whether you get a degree or not, you must do it. Once again take recourse to online courses, whether the pronunciation is correct, grammar or not, just learn to speak. Then work from the bottom of the list eliminating issues that aren’t worth the fight. Often we do not find a person with whom we can speak English. The solution is for anyone to use TED Talk and headphones as well as keep talking as they speak. In a short time you will also become proficient in speaking English words. Get in the habit of writing diaries to learn to write. Write short posts on Facebook.
While studying for a degree, keep exploring future prospects in your field. In which direction are jobs increasing, where are they decreasing? And then look at what skills you might need. Keep trying to learn them. For example, if you want to do research in MS after BS, try to experience research in BS. Learn the tools that are used in research. Similarly, if you have to do a job, then see what you have to do for that job. Try to fix the flaws.
If you are thinking of applying for a scholarship anywhere, plan for BS. Which scholarship to apply for? What documents are required for this, what tests are to be passed? What kind of problems can a student face and what is life like in the country they are thinking of moving to? Find the answers to all these questions and then prepare yourself. Talk to people who have already won these scholarships to get an idea of what the situation might be like there.
There are many exchange programs running during FSC and BS these days, due to which you can go to another country for a few weeks. Be aware of such programs and then prepare for them. Many forums are now online. Be aware of them too and participate in them. This will not only make your CV better, but will also give you an idea of what young people in developed countries think, what direction they are working. The scope of your understanding will become a little wider.
Circumstances do not always remain the same. Maybe there’s a time when you have to study on your own? Then try to learn a skill which, when the time comes, you can make it your livelihood, albeit part-time. There are so many types it’s hard to say. In freelancing you can learn the skill of your choice online for free with little time.
Now there is hardly any field left in which computer is not used. For example, machine learning is not only the work of computer related people but also chemists are using machine learning. Physicists not only experiment but also use many computer models in theory. Similarly, programming is widely used in meteorology and astronomy. That is to say, it is important to know what software is used in the field you want to go to in the future. You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people. There are some softwares that are a must have for anyone in the field, such as end notes or mendley for reference in articles. Similarly, a little bit of graphics designing should come to the person associated with each field.
And last but not least, the headline made you look for friends who are not only interested in learning but also looking forward to it. Such people develop themselves and keep encouraging their followers to move forward. In the same way, hold the hand of an adult in your field who has achieved something. Ask him out well if he is no longer absorbed in the connection. How to proceed?
These are all things that can be learned slowly during FSC and BS. The more you learn, the easier your life will become and the easier it will be for you to get a position in the future.
