Success in examination depends on how students are writing examinations without stress. Success is not a matter of luck, but can be achieved through hard work. Parents and teachers need to create stress free ecosystem among the students. But as 10th and 12th Board examinations are nearing, parents and teachers are anxious about the outcome of examinations.
State and CBSE board syllabus examinations for 10th and 12th standard will begin from next week. Recent research done by Professor Dympna Devine, Head of the sociology at University College Dublin reveals that three out of four students say exams are biggest stress in school. A 75 percent of students were satisfied with counselling and active learning.
Stress free mind
While nearing examinations, students will have lot of doubts about examinations. In order to succeed in the examinations, mind needs to be calm, intellect to be doubt free and memory to be clear. Recent findings reveal that a student attending the examination without stress will additionally gain 20 percent marks than students writing the exam with stress. Anything which helps to create positive attitude includes regular sleep, food, exercise, spending study time in daylight hours, learn and practice a relaxation technique, rest while resting and study when opting to study.
During sleep brain clears its trash. During deep sleep period from 11 pm to 3 am, concentrate on sleep rather than study. Minimum 6 hours of sleep is essential for the examination. Always keep the mobile phone and internet resources away from study room. But internet can be used to supplement studies. During examination season avoid the use of social media. Most often students hate subjects because of listless, uninspired teaching and badly written text books. Try to concentrate on fundamentals first. Students must opt for easy studying than emergency studying. Emergency studying will create unwanted stress. Too much stress means too much to do, too little time and not enough energy. While doing emergency studying the immediate worry among the students is whether I can complete the study in time?
How to study?
Students preparing for board examinations must practice last five years question papers. Study continuously on priority basis and answer all the questions in the text book. Take 10 minutes break in every two hours of study. Time management is more important. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices and avoid excess of non-vegetarian and hotel foods. Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science & Commerce are ‘do-type’ subjects.
Study the formula & equations. Study skills include survey, question, read, recite and review. Meditation and yoga will help students to improve their mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health. It can be done for 10 or 15 minutes per day which will improve concentration, memory power, mental and physical health. Self-confidence and stress free mindset will pave way for success in board examinations....
