Anshul, you have asked a very pertinent question in this forum post and if we remember students were already having an exam phobia in the pre-pandemic times. Though all students will not have that but a majority was suffering from this exam fear at that time also. Exam is always like that as it is the test of the student whether they had taken the course seriously during the year or not. It does not matter whether the classes were in physical mode or online, at the time of exam many students will have a nervous break down. Only difference between earlier times and the present one is that today students are not mixing with the other students and are not able to approach the teachers for any help and that might be another negative factor adding to their worries. In addition to all these problems, every student wants to have some fun time with friends and other companions and also enjoy games and other amusements with them. Unfortunately the students are missing all these small pleasures. When so many worries are already there, the exam phobia has to be more than the normal times.
Knowledge is power.
An exam is not everything in life and should not be taken as a deciding factor in any situation. Just like any other test, the examination is also a test to know how much one is aware of the subject. If you think of the exam as a deciding factor, then many more thoughts, especially fear, will come up in your mind. You will begin to worry that if you cannot do well in the exam you won't be able to progress in life. Never take it in that way. If you study the subject well and if you are not worried at all, then definitely you can write the exams and score well. But if you worry, you can make a lot of mistakes while writing the exams. Stop worrying. Concentrate on your studies and when required take the help of the appropriate person. Meditation may help you to gain concentration.
