Sanjal Singh Raut (Ace A Level, 2023)
August 28, 2023
Hey there, fellow readers! It’s been quite a ride in the past two months as I embarked on the challenging yet exhilarating journey of the A-levels program with Ace. This experience has been a whirlwind of emotions, late-night study sessions, and self-discovery. Join me as I share the highs, lows, and invaluable lessons I’ve learned along the way. Back two months ago, I felt a surge of anxiety and exhilaration as I went through the doors of the Ace program. The unfamiliar territory of higher level courses initially appeared intimidating, but the encouraging atmosphere and friendship among my fellow students immediately allayed my concerns. Together, we were prepared to climb the intellectual Everest that lay ahead. The skill of juggling your schoolwork, extracurricular activities, and some form of a social life! I’ve learned over the last two months that time management is a survival skill, not simply a catchphrase. It took planning to juggle the many subjects, assignments, and revision schedules. I’ve learnt the value of prioritizing tasks and making the most of every minute through the use of color-coded calendars and concentrated study sessions. Despite the challenges, there have been moments of pure intellectual. That moment when a complex concept finally clicks, the rush of solving a challenging accounts problem, or the realization that my essay is actually making sense – these “eureka” moments have fueled my determination to keep pushing forward. The sheer joy of understanding and mastering a subject is unparalleled .Naturally, the A-level experience is not without its challenges. There were times when the pile of homework felt impenetrable and self-doubt loomed huge. But it was in these low points that I realized how tough I was. It became a motto to accept failure as a necessary step toward achievement. Each failure evolved into a chance for me to develop, learn, and improve my strategy. The consistent support of mentors, professors, and friends has been one of the journey’s most encouraging components. These support networks have been crucial in helping me stay on course, whether it is through a pep talk for motivation, explanation of a complex idea, or simply by listening sympathetically. It is essential to ask for assistance when necessary. I see that the A-level examinations are getting closer and closer as I glance at the calendar. The past two months have flown by, being characterized by rigorous study, development, and unforgettable events. Even though there is still plenty to learn, I feel prepared and in a position to take on the forthcoming difficulties. I am prepared to give it my all because of the many practice papers and late-night study sessions that got me here. The last two months with the Ace A-levels program have been nothing short of transformative. I’ve emerged not only with a deeper understanding of subjects but also with a profound appreciation for hard work, perseverance, and the strength of the human spirit. The road ahead is daunting, but armed with knowledge, determination, and a supportive community, I’m ready to take on whatever lies ahead. Here’s to the final stretch of this incredible journey!
