Challenges waiting in the new academic session are listed below:

It is quite obvious that in new class everything will be new. For you, all new subjects would seem like something out of the box. Adding to your trouble, there comes new teachers to teach new subjects. You would already have got familarised with the teaching criteria followed by your previous class teachers.

This is a matter of concern not only limited to the professional life, but it has emerged out to be a big problem in academic life also. In the world full of cut-throat competition, every student wants to leave no stone unturned. Higher the class, the harder you will have to work.

Such tightly packed schedule causes the students to get deprived of the daily lively activities like games, movies, outings and many more.
