‘Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.’
Dear students, it’s exam season. Have too much to study and very less time? Stress and pressure taking a toll? At Jayshree Periwal High School,one of the leading CBSE Schools,we not only provide the students the best quality and learner -centric education but also help them prepare and deal with exam related stress.
While some students do seem to thrive on last-minute cramming, it’s widely accepted that (for most of them) this is not the best way to approach an exam. To help sort out the time management, they need to set up a timetable for study. Following a study plan will automatically guide one saving great amount of time and energy.
Try and get rid of all distractions, and make sure they feel as comfortable and able to focus as possible. De-clutter the space from unnecessary items to avoid distractions. Visual aids can be really helpful when revising. At the start of a topic, students must challenge themselves to write down everything they already know about a topic – and then highlight where the gaps lie. Closer to the exam, condense the revision notes into one-page diagrams. Getting the ideas down in this brief format can help them to quickly recall everything . Human brain functions the best when it is given breaks periodically. So, take breaks regularly, go for a brief walk, listen to music ,talk to your near and dear ones,close your eyes or look away in distance to rest the eyes and the mind.
A good sleep of 8 hours is recommended by health experts.Some students may prefer to study late at night, some may prefer early in the morning, so check which time of the day suits best, schedule and maintain a proper sleep routine.Studying in groups occasionally can help gain more knowledge and ideas about the same topic and subject one missed out while studying on their own. Clearing out doubts by asking each other questions can result in a clearer insight into the facts and also result in better memory.
Once we finish studying the targeted syllabus or subjects, we should go through question papers from the previous years.This helps to get used to the format of the questions, and – if you time yourself – can also be good practice for making sure you spend the right amount of time on each section.
What we eat during exams can really have an impact on energy levels and focus, so children must keep away from junk food. They should keep their body and brain well-fuelled by choosing nutritious foods that have been proven to aid concentration and memory, such as fish, nuts, seeds, yogurt and blueberries. Drink plenty of water to keep the body properly hydrated.
REMEMBER…’The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.’
