The message today that students can usually understand is that the knowledge acquired in traditional branches is not very relevant – and the inactivity or inefficiency present at the time of admission remains intact. Students become somewhat uninterested, and sometimes resistant, to academic work, and in some cases they are permanently in the lap of laziness, and more energetic students develop alternative interests – eg, personality Development (leadership, positions of responsibility), extra-curricular activities (sports, music, theater), business, financial management activities (clubs, online These courses, etc.). Some students even conclude that science and engineering are not capable of working so hard.
Conversations today with students, students’ public blogs, concerns expressed on social media and questions asked indicate that IIT students are well aware of the ground reality. Question asked by a student on Quora – How is life after cracking IIT …? Do I have to study life for 10-12 hours even after reaching IIT? – Wrote in response to, “No, you don’t need this … As a student of IIT Roorkee, I can give you a glimpse of the life inside IITs … Most of the students study only one week before the exam. .. there are exceptions, but I am talking about most of the students … “Another says that these types of signals are given by the coaching class only. This student wrote, “This is the wrong mindset, which is told by the coaching classes that you don’t have to study after entering IIT, life is very comfortable, there are no worries … which is totally wrong ..

Empirical anger is very worrying. As teachers, we get this attitude in our classrooms and courses.
