As the examination dates approach, it grips students with implicit fear, unnecessary anxiety and unusual strain at all levels, especially those appearing for board examination. Often the examination fever brings to an end all the recreational activities, robbing the very joy of students’ lives. While examination does create certain level of worry, there are several other aspects that cause excessive anxiety. Unrealistic self imposed lofty goals for high marks, impractical expectations and undue pressurising by parents, peer competition, misplaced ambitions to outperform others are some of the aspects that mount undue nervousness and over burdening. It is high time that students take examination positively as a challenge and not as a painful event and the end of everything in life. Often excessive anxiety is also related to lack of self-motivation, self-confidence and preparedness. While students grapple with their examination fear, here are a few tips that will help them boost their selves and make them emerge confident achievers not only in the upcoming exams but also in life in general.

Parents and Mentors:
Do not compare your child’s performance with other children’s achievements. Don’t force impossible targets on them. These can lead to several negative consequences on the young minds. Rather, stand by them; be extremely supportive and encouraging ensuring that they feel loved and cared for. Mentor and motivate them to remain steadfast, emotionally balanced and robustly anchored to their goal.
Dear students, remember that good marks may get you into a reputed college but falling a little short of it will not be an obstacle in reaching your fullest potential. You are precious, lovable and a wonderful person who can make a difference in the society with your positive contribution. Spend time in prayer and draw energy and inspiration to remain focused. Turn your anxiety into positive motivation and do not get bogged down by exams. Be positive while you approach not only exams but any challenge in life. You will only grow stronger and emerge victorious. With your hard work, determination and effort you will be a proud winner. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Wishing you success and a bright future ahead!
