Board exams??? Relax…..
We often get scared when we hear the word board exam. This scare further leads to stress, which every student has to bear during these exams. A student appearing for a board exam is always a victim of parental as well as peer pressure. Parents often pressurise their children, that they need to get admitted in the best college while students pressure themselves to score better than peers. All this tension and anxiety ultimately leads to restlessness, agitation and depression among various students.
Students generally don’t realize that it is very important to keep mental calmness during theses exams to yield better results. We should not forget the fact that only good health can help in the best performance.
Here are few tips that can help students in keeping the exam stress away
Think positive - Positive thinking acts as the best medicine for examination stress. If a student believes that he/she can do it, no one in this world can stop him/her from scoring the best. Positive thinking is the best remedy to beat the exam stress.
Focus - During examinations, it is general tendency among students to loose focus. They start with a subject but end up doing some other subject. This way, till the last moment, no subject is thoroughly prepared. So, it is very important for the students to focus on one subject at a time instead of preparing two-three subjects simultaneously.
Take break - To keep the mind relaxed before and during the exams, it is important to take small breaks after every hour of study. During these breaks, if you wish to do something that you like i.e. listening to music, watching videos etc. Avoid talking to your friend as you may end up discussing about studies only.
Keep hobbies alive - The moment student enters 10Th or 12th standard, he/she gives up their hobbies and plans to devote all the time to studies. However, this is not right. To appear for an examination, a student should not end up giving something he/she likes till the exams. Keeping hobbies alive, keeps one motivated.
Group studies before exams - Discussing and learning with friends, before the exams, always helps in understanding a subject better. Other than that, in this manner, one breaks away from the monotony of studying alone all the time. However, it is advisable not to follow this practice during exams as friends may create distraction in mind.
Practice yoga - Yoga is the best form of stress-buster. It releases all the tension from mind and helps a student concentrate better. By putting half hour every day in Yoga, a student not only remains fit physically but also mentally.
Self-confidence - It is very important to have faith in oneself. One should not lose hope ever.
These tips will not only help a student score well in exams but also will help them keeping the mind relaxed and cool during the course of exams. Go for 10th And 12th Sample Papers and do study accordingly.
