Let Children Enjoy their Studies during Board Exams
It’s that time of the year when our students are expected to be their best and the inevitable is just around the corner. Each year we discuss and ponder on how we can free children from the over-bearing stress of board exams and the ever-growing parent’s expectations. This year the fateful months of February and March are set to decide the future of lakhs of students. Most students sweat and get anxious as the date of examination approaches. The CBSE exams for class 10th and 12th will begin on March 5th, 2018.
All parents want their children to score the best in board exams and get admission in top rank universities, however as much as it is important for parents to provide their children with academic guidance, it is also necessary to provide them with love, affection, and trust. It’s a collective responsibility of parents as well as teachers to be accessible to children so that they can discuss their problems, stress, anxieties or fears. Instead of exerting pressure, parents should motivate their children. Far from being the only deciding factor for a golden future, the board exam result should not worry students and parents beyond a point. Remember, ‘You’re always bigger than a number.’ Without a doubt, good marks and qualification open doors to higher education and fulfilling lives, but broader, deeper learning rather than just good scores should be the penultimate goal.
Besides studying hard for your board exams, it is important to increase productivity and take exams well by focusing on eating, sleeping well, mental and physical fitness.
We bring to all students and parents a guide on dealing with anxious moments and acing the board exams:
Eat Right: Especially during examinations, a balanced diet is very important. Fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables provide energy and boost your ability to concentrate. Good nutrition should be an integral part of your study plan.
Take care of your eyes: Examination means a lot of eye strain, make sure you don’t overexert your eyes. Best practice is to rest your eyes every half an hour and splash your eyes with cold water every now and then.
A feasible timeline: Plan your study schedule well in advance and create a timeline that works. This would help you set achievable goals and take the stress out of the equation.
Physical Exercises: Physical exercises help you stay stress-free and mentally fit. Unwinding is key to relax your mind and increase productivity.
Emotional Preparation: Talk to your parents, calm your nerves and tell them about your fears. Expressing your worries is a good way to get rid of them.
Last and not the least, always remember, numbers are a minuscule measure of your worth and capability.
