The fear of examination paperIn the physical mode examination, an examination paper is given to the students and answer copybook is supplied for writing the answers. The examination paper is a top secret and is supposed to be unsealed only at the beginning of the exam. The suspense created up to the eleventh hour as what would be the questions this time always intrigues the students and due to the uncertainty coupled with their insufficient preparation for the examination, there is an element of fear which precipitates even in the minds of meritorious students and then what to say of the mediocre students.
This phobia or fear of the examination paper is so strong in the minds of he students that as soon as they get the question paper in their hands they start answering the questions with great speed as they know that sometimes if they do not attend it fast then probably they would not be able to attend to the desired number of questions and lose the marks accordingly. It many times so happens that the students do not read the instructions also minutely and do not observe some of the instructions which are actually very important from the point of view of the time management.
So whenever a student goes to appear in a physical mode written examination then he or she should first of all read the instructions carefully so that one does not do or attempt more than what is required there. The instructions change year to year and time to time and one should not assume that because last year the instructions were such and such so they would be same this year also. So, what is required is one has to reach the examination centre in a calm and composed state without any hurry or excitement as these things would only harm us as one should have a concentrated mind while writing the answer of a particular question. The hard work done throughout the year would completely go waste if the student does not keep a balanced and composed approach at the time of the examination.
