In my opinion, the student's only activity should be to remain immersed in studies throughout the year. Also the preparation should be done through writing only and by solving previous years examination papers in examination like conditions.
In case of thorough preparation, the examinations appear a cake walk without any stress.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Those who do not study regularly become fearful of the coming ordeal while those who study well but do not get time to revise are demoralized thinking their grade will be affected.
Actually, it depends on the basic efforts and homework done throughout the year whether a student will get stress at the time of exams or not. If a student is regular in his classes and completing his homework on day to day basis then he will be in comfort zone even during exams.
Knowledge is power.
1. Be confident. You have attended the classes regularly, so, be positive.
2. It is time for revision. Never try to learn new things, concentrate to revise the topic you have lean by heart.
3. Take proper rest during exam time. It is very important and every student commits this mistake that he does not take proper rest.
4. Try to cover the subject which is interesting to you and try to get maximum marks in that subject.
5. In mathematics learn all the formula's for proper solving the problems.
6. In social science, learn the important dates and events of history.
7. In science, always complete your answer with a diagram. The diagram is a must in science. So, first, try to draw good diagram related to answer. Also, learn all the differences in science.
So, these are some tips for your examination. Best of luck
Honesty is the best policy.
So every student should not feel lazy after coming to home, should do home work and then study the portion which was covered in school that day and then play for some time. If students follow this, they will not feel fear of exams.
I would like to exemplify this. Everyone has heard the tale of the tortoise and the rabbit and how the rabbit challenges the tortoise for a race and while the tortoise slowly and steadily keeps on crawling, the rabbit sleeps thinking that he would easily win the race by running at the last moment. However, the rabbit loses.
It never does good to slack off.
Also, studying during the exams, simply for exams' sake, fails the very goal of education, of that of making us learned human beings.
As a parent, the first thing is not to pressurize or threaten the child, set targets that are realistic for your child and not the class comparisons. Comparing with other boys or girls and shouting at our children encourages the child to develop an inferiority complex and it slowly de-moralises the child. At our home, no targets are given, we just encourage them to do their best and they do well.
As a student preparing for the exams, one should realise that a little pressure or fear of exams helps the candidate not to become over-confident or laid back.
Time the preparations well for the subjects. We have a tendency to revise what we know well or to start from first chapter or first page and hope to complete the book, this seldom happens.
Set time targets for subjects that you are weak in, subjects you are good in can be revised later in the night or evening.
Put up a chart on the wall about the days left and what you have to do. This acts like a reminder of how you are progressing. If you are falling short after 2-3 weeks, you can and need to revise the time allocation so that you don't have a lot left just before the exams.
Take breaks for short walks at the home terrace or climb stairs, a little yoga or just talk to your family members, you'll get re-charged and refreshed.
If you have good friends who are of the same wave length, then you can plan for comibned studies
Have small meals and healthy food so that you don't feel lethargic. Confide all your feelings and fears with your parents, elder brother or sister, they would be the best supporters for you.
Pray and spend some time in meditation, even 10-15 minutes is fine.
From my personal experience, I can say that whenever I did not feel tension prior to any particular paper, I always committed some very silly errors. Little bit of tension helps us to remain alert during the examination.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
