  • No doubt when it is exam time the fear and tension would there for the student and parents. But how to face the exam is the question and it is easy too. According to me, I trained my children to read the daily lessons and also prepare for the tomorrow lesson today itself so that the child can give full attention in the class and the understanding of the portions would be good without any doubts. Once the child gets updated on a daily basis, there is no question of any backlog of questions to be remembered or verified. And those who prepare from the beginning can remember the entire textbook portions and thus no fear to face the exam.

  • To fetch impressive marks in any examination is an art and needs a thorough planning with the allocation of sufficient time for each paper included for the examination. I am enlisting a few points for the benifits of the aspirants appearing either for class ten or twelve examination conducted by CBSE Board. The same points would be applicable for the Kerala Board. The points are as follows -
    1) Solve the previous year question papers of last seven years and see how much comfortable you are with the questions set in such examinations. If you feel your preparation is deficient in that direction, you need to see the solutions of such questions which you think difficult to attempt. You may take guidance of your class teacher or the concerned teacher of the subject of the coaching institute being attended by you.
    2) Refer to your text books of each subjects and basics are to be understood sincerely. Make a note book for Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology enlisting all the relevant formulaes connected with the subjects. However, the same is not applicable for Biology. In Biology for quick revision, sketch - diagrams indicating proper terms would be required. For Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics indications of formulaes and its proper use has to be revised frequently so as to avoid the last minute stress of the examination.
    3) It is not advisable to refer to a lot of books on each subject. This may create confusion. Stick to your own text books.
    4) Revisions of each subject is to be taken up very frequently so as not to forget any vital point related to the subject.
    5) Give equal priority to each subject and allocate time for the subject accordingly.
    6) Avoid spicy and oily diets during the period of your examination. Include Milk, Almond and Walnuts in a little quantity providing your body enough nutrients so as to keep your body fit.
    7) Take rest for at least seven hours in night so that you remain fresh and active during the period of examination.

  • This is the main problem in our education system. The result of the whole year's struggle will be tested in 3 hours. A person who is good at the subject may have some problem on that specific day and he will be in difficulties.

    Many students will have this examination fear. The teachers and the parents should train them from the beginning and monitor their performance. There should be some practice sessions and the students should take these sessions also seriously and they should start preparing well for the examinations. Many schools will conducted practice examinations . They will conduct two or three such examinations so that the students will get accustomed to writing examinations. In some schools they will even declare the results and try to encourage the students.

    In our houses also we should see that our wards will face the examinations confidently. We should also conduct 2 or 3 mock drills so that they know how to attempt writing the examinations.

    All students should complete the study well in advance of the examination and they should not do night outs during examination. By the time the examinations start, the student complete the syllabus and just brush the subject once before going for the examinations. He should have a relaxed mind and should not get tensed. They should have sufficient sleep and should develop confidence that they can face the examination well.

    While studying the subject he should understand the subject but should not by-heart without understanding the subject. One should get up early on the day of examination and should have peace of mind and should not be thinking about the examination. One should not have any negative thoughts and they should go to examination with positive thoughts. Some people try to refer the subject till the last moment. At least two hours before, they should stop referring the subject and have a confident mind.

    The parent should never discourage the wards and give them confidence so that they will have a positive attitude. Keeping calm and cool and going to the examination with a positive frame of mind is very important.

    always confident

  • Many students have the fear of the exam. It is a very common thing and the main reason is that one has to give the gist of ones study and performance in those 2-3 crucial hours. So fear of exam is a genuine fear and has certain psychological manifestations also.

    What can be done to avoid this unwanted fear at the time of exams? There are methods and measures to cope up with this and some are as follows -

    1. Students who do their studies well in advance during the year and do not postpone their syllabus for the eleventh hour are likely to get less anxiety at the time of exam. So it requires making time table and adhering to that right from the beginning of the academic year. This also helps in distributing the course evenly throughout the year.

    2. Managing the time is one of the crucial factors in the life of a student and he has to take full advantage of the available time and not waste it in unproductive things. Some hobbies like hearing music can be done in parallel with the studies as the soothing music in the background can help in focussing to the studies much. It also helps in not distracting by the external sound disturbances due to nearby traffic or neighbourhood irritating sounds.

    3. Taking small breaks amid the studies. This is a very important factor and many students do no understand its importance and finish the studies for taking the long awaited big break. No, it is not correct. Remember, there are no big study breaks in the life of a student. It is a continuous endeavour and that only will help in scoring high in the forthcoming exams.

    4. Another thing which is of paramount importance is managing the stress levels. It is a common thing that when a test like exam looms on our head there are good chances that we get stressed. So, we have to deal with this evil effectively. If a student has done his studies well in advance and has covered the syllabus properly, he will have less chances of getting unnecessarily stressed as he is well prepared for it. In addition, one has to be a bit alert on this front that being stressed diminishes our cognitive energies and our performance in the exam can be effected by it even though we have well prepared. So, remember stress is our enemy and we have to fight with it with full force. Having little physical activities here and there, having a short stroll in the open air and having a small chit-chat during those short breaks is the time tested way to reduce stress levels significantly.

    5. Our physical fitness is a very important thing in our life and our performance sometimes depend on that much and one has to be very careful on that account. During exam times one has to be careful in not taking excess food as it will lead to lethargy in the body which will simply make one lazy. One has to avoid junk food also and go for nutritive items like fruits, salads, nuts etc. Drinking a lot of water will help keeping the body cool and hydrated.

    6. Many students are advised to make bulleted notes in form of small pocket cards and keep them in the pocket so that they can revise those things on the go or traveling from one place to another. I also feel that it is one of the best ways to revise the crucial points. It will also help in lessening the fear of the exam.

    7. Please note that we are studying for our career and a bright future and are not doing any favour to our family or friends. It is a personal choice. So take it as your own baby and take care of it as much as possible. You will reap as you sow.

    8. Student life is a life of devotion and dedication. It requires total calm and peace. So one has to avoid any conflict or confrontation with others as it will disturb in studies and hamper the overall goal and objective. One has to remove unnecessary things from ones mind as more space is required for the immediate objective that is studies and studies only.

    9. Discipline is the key to success and adhering to the time table will make a person confident and bold and then there will be no place for fear in ones life.

    10. Remember the mantra that fear will adversely affect your score in the exam for which you were toiling hard day and night and you have to keep it away during those crucial 2-3 hours inside the examination hall.

    Knowledge is power.

    Avoid tantrums. Don't panic. Believe in yourself. Be confident and don't let negative thoughts win over you.

    5. Priority
    The first thing which must be in your mind is to study and complete the syllabus. Don't be in a rush but be on a steady pace. Be devoted towards your study and health goals.

    6. Health
    Study for 40-45 mins and take 10-15 mins. During those small breaks, regain your mental and physical health by refreshing your mind and rejoicing. Don't be hard on yourself.

    7. Syllabus
    At times, questions come out of syllabus. Remember 80% questions come from the syllabus so, be prepared with the whole syllabus. Don't miss out any topic due to any kind of negligence or excuse. Cover the whole syllabus and clear all your doubts before the commencement of the examination dates.

    8. Notes
    Electronic notes are not so beneficial in the long run even though most people nowadays favour e-learning. It's best to make notes in hard copy and in our own handwriting for better comprehension and to avoid any kind of discrepancy and errors.

    9. Teach yourself

    It's easy to fool yourself because no one can fool you except your ownself.
    Learn the study lessons and then teach the lessons in front of a mirror without any kind of reference material.
