In this blog, we will be reading about possible ways to help students who may have sharp minds but may fail to convert thoughts to words just when it matter the most, during examinations.
First of all, it is essential to realize that exams are not end of the world. Therefore, there is no use and need to create so much hype around them. There have been many greats such as Bill Gates and Walt Disney, who did not fare that well in exams but still managed to surprise the world with their beliefs and actions.
Secondly, three groups (parents, teachers, and society) need to realize that the young minds of students are very delicate and too much of pressure or unrealistic expectations on them can break them to many pieces. Therefore, it is very essential to realize that expectations may not be wrong but over-expectations and expectations on the cost of a student’s life or against his/her wishes are not right and must not be encouraged.
Thirdly, students need to realize that year-long studies are required for good scores during competitive exams. Moreover, there is no use of studying if you are putting too much burden on your body by waking for long hours.
Adequate sleep and a healthy diet are important for performance, and educational performance is no exception. It is always advisable to attend the study classes and make short notes about important topics or subject matters. In addition to that, there is no use of hampering your own studies at the cost of helping some one else. Remember, you are spoiling your own life and nurturing some one’s life. How stupid is that?
Do not waste your time before exams by visiting your friends’ homes. Try to be prepared with everything beforehand and do not make short-term plans. Restrict your phone calls to the minimum and try to keep friends away from your mind for a while. This may sound absurd but that’s the only way to concentrate. On the other hand, you always have the liberty to spend quality time with your friends after you have finished your study assignments.
In short, be truthful to yourself and do not play with your life and future. Failure may come but that does not mean that you need to be disappointed for the rest of your life. After all, exams are not end of the world.
