EXAM PHOBIA

EXAM PHOBIA

HOW TO HANDLE THE EXAM OR COMPETITION?

DO’S AND DON’T’S FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS.

Exams create stress for parents and students alike. But if certain precautions and self-discipline is practiced, handling  exams or competitions does not become a stress for parents or students.

Student’s role:

1.       Daily routine is the key to success in any exam or competition. Planning is very important. Execution of the planning makes the job of preparation easier.

2.       Self-loading planning with following format helps a lot:

           PLAN YOUR WORK, WORK YOUR PLAN.

           I AM INTELLIGENT. I AM BRILLIANT. I WILL ACHIEVE MY GOAL.  I am responsible for my career and life.

Subject
Chapter
Name      Pages  
Start Time
Finish Time
Delay in achieving the goal if any and new finish time




































Exercise done/not done
Healthy eating
Done/not done
Good Music
Listened/not listened








































3.       Be present mentally and physically for study.  Be honest. Dishonesty in study does not pay. Don’t cheat yourself. Sincerity pays. Be sincere. Don’t read to explain to others but for yourself. The best gift to yourself is “education.”

4.       Don’t study for marks alone. Work hard, read sincerely and marks will follow.

5.       Don’t compete or compare yourself with others but with your previous performance.

6.       How to read:

6.1 Have a separate room for study.

6.2 Stop mental distraction like watching TV, speaking unnecessarily or excessively with your friends or classmates. Yes discussing a subject is good use of mobile phone and time.

              6.3 Discipline  yourself mentally and physically. Sleep well. Read well. Play well.
             6.4 Eat healthy light diet.

             6.5 Exercise daily.

              6.6 Refresh yourself with washing your face with warm/cold water.  Water has refreshing properties.
            6.7 Talk to positive people who encourage you not discourage you.

      7. Prepare with the end benefits of the  education in your life.  FAIL = FIRST ATTEMPT IN LEARNING.  Don’t discourage yourself.  Many students overdo and do not like to face the failure. Failed means you are in the race. If you will prepare well, there is no question of failure. Guaranteed.

     8. Love to read at your best. Don’t let your mood  be the boss of your reading habits. Be the boss of your mood. In preparation is only you and your books.

 Read the books thoroughly and you will find that you know 80% and just 20% you need to consult others.

 Jot down what you wish to consult your teachers or senior students. Tell your parents: You pay fee, give food, give clothes and everything. Learning is my responsibility. I will do the best.  Pray and work.  

Touch feet of your parents. Parents are visible God and God is invisible parents i.e. your ancestors. Pray to them and no power on Earth can make you unsuccessful. Yes you need to read and work hard. Merely Prayer will not do.

  9.BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. TRUST YOURSELF.  DEVELOP AN ATTITUDE : YES I CAN!

PARENTS ROLE:

1.       Parents role is not limited upto paying fees and financing the child’s study.

2.       They should go beyond that.

3.       Don’t compare your child with others. Generally parents say: Geetu got 96% Raman got 98% and what about you? This taunt by parents hits and hurts the child’s psyche most.

4.       Mind it: Parents need children and children need parents. Don’t compare and make them hate you internally. Rather say: I believe you and trust you will do the best. Exam is a part of life not end of life. So, do your best and leave the rest to God.

 These are the morale boosting words. Once the parents these words, child starts working hard with “do or die” spirit.

5.       Do not give unnecessary advice. This disturbs the child.

6.       Especially for moms: Ask the child what the child wants to eat. Don’t cook what you want to cook but cook what is liked by the child. Whatever the child likes gives more mental energy.
7.       Honey, fruits, nuts, milk  are good for memory and mind sharpening.  Include them in the diet. Follow your child and treat the child like King during this period. Leave criticism for another occasion.

HOW TO STUDY FOR MORE MARKS AND EASY SUCCESS?

1.       Be mentally prepared saying to yourself i.e. self-talk (silently) I am braver than my exam. I can work hard and success will be hard. Don’t let study be your master but you be the master of your study.

2.       Don’t stress yourself but keep the stress under your control.

 Do deep breathing. Breathe in through nose for 4 secs, hold the breath for 8 seconds and exhale the breath with a blow through mouth in 4-5 seconds. You are refreshed to study.

3.       Mind it : LUCK FAVOURS THE BRAVE. You are brave. 

4.       Divide the study of one hour in 4 parts:   
 15 minutes read the headings of the chapter thoroughly. 
2. 15 minutes closing eyes storm the brain to understand what you have read. 
3)
Re-read the chapter 4. Now write what you have read.    After every 30 minutes 5 minutes pause and leaving the chair and splashing the water on face pays.
5.        Mind Maps can be used for study and correlation of different topics read in the chapter. Read the whole book. It will make the learning easy. Don’t understand but read like a novel.  Always read with pencil  in hand. Keep on underling the difficult points. But do  not stop reading. Continue reading. You will see that only 10-20% you do not know, rest is known to you. Focus on what you know well.
6.       REVISION IS THE FATHER OF SUCCESS.
7.       Drink water many times. Water rejuvenates learning power.

WISH YOU A GRAND SUCCESS
