Tips to score in CBSE Board Exams
‘Stress’ – the word itself explains the criticality of the situation. The questions which generally come in our mind are:
Do I know enough?
Can I cover the entire syllabus?
How will the result be?
These questions hamper the mind like a ballistic. So is there any way out of this anxiety. The answer is ‘Yes’!
Some basic tips to eliminate this demon and to regain the lost confidence are:
Make small but effective study plans that are close to reality. Start rewarding yourself for every well-executed plan to remain motivated.
Assess priorities, assets, and difficulties so that you are aware of the fields you need to work on.
Follow a normalized routine atmosphere at home that helps you remain focused. Take frequent breaks between studies so that you are fresh every time you study.
Don’t strip off TV, entertainment, and outings completely. Feel comfortable about yourself.
Divert your mind from imagining extreme consequences and worst situations as they are of no use but rather need to be discouraged.
Constant encouragement and reassurance is essential from all significant members in school and family.
It is important that you are clear about how to take the examination, how to tackle questions, and how to manage time.
Exam tension, exam anxiety or nervousness is all part of growing up. Such feeling comes from our mindset and pressure that comes from our family and teachers. Try to keep this at bay and you will do fine in your exams.
