Board Exam Blues? Beat the Buzz with These 5 Proven Stress Management Techniques
As the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE), Madhya Pradesh Board of Secondary Education (MPBSE), Bihar School Examination Board, and Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education announce the date sheets for Class 10th and Class 12th, students and parents are gearing up for the exam season. The Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) is set to conduct board exams from February 22 to March 9, 2024. To alleviate stress and enhance performance, Tarun Saini, Co-Founder and CEO of Vidyakul, shares five valuable tips:
1. Schedule Study Time and Set Goals
Students should create a timetable for each subject, breaking down the vast syllabus into manageable portions. Setting daily goals and prioritizing subjects based on interest and preparation can make the study routine more structured.
2. Prioritize Mental and Physical Health
Maintaining the right frame of mind and physical health is crucial for effective exam preparation. Adequate rest, a balanced diet, and regular exercise contribute to overall well-being, providing the energy and motivation needed for focused studying. Outdoor activities and meditation can positively impact mental health.
3. Seek Support from Family and Friends
Having a support system during stressful times is essential. Friends, family, and teachers can offer emotional support, boost morale, and provide valuable assistance in exam preparation. Don't hesitate to seek help and share concerns with your support network.
4. Take Mock Tests
Solving previous year's question papers, sample papers, and mock tests is an effective strategy. This practice helps students understand the exam pattern and marking scheme. Identifying challenges during mock tests allows for targeted improvement and clarification from teachers.
5. Create Brief Notes
After studying each chapter, creating concise notes aids in quick revision. These notes serve as a handy reference for key points, making the review process more efficient. Well-organized notes contribute to better retention of essential information.
Remember, effective planning, a healthy lifestyle, and a strong support system are integral components of successful exam preparation. Wishing all students the best of luck for their upcoming board exams!
