Beat the Exam Stress-Useful Tips For Children - Anoop Bishnoi

It’s that time of the year once again. The senior secondary board exams are just around the corner, and students all over the country are frantically preparing to give it their all in this annual showdown.

Exam season can be extremely hectic. Tutorials, study groups, revision sessions, late nights trying to go over notes one more time; all of these things can make us feel as if we don’t have time for ourselves or anything else. Finding time to care for yourself, on the other hand, is critical for maintaining good mental health and avoiding unhealthy stress. And, once you’ve prioritized yourself, you’ll probably discover that you have more time than you thought. After all, if you are relaxed, refreshed, and well-cared for, you are less likely to waste time worrying and will achieve more in the time spent studying.

In a recent conversation with Anoop Bishnoi, he shared some tips for the students to cope with exam stress. He said, “One thing that can really help you find peace is to spend some time, even if it’s only a minute or two, doing some focused, deep breathing. It helps clear the head and keeps you calm. During exam season, it can be difficult to force yourself to sleep rather than do just one more hour of study. However, lack of sleep increases stress hormones, so finding a way to rest is critical; don’t go straight from studying to bed; instead, take some time to relax with some TV or a good book, and don’t be afraid to take a quick power nap while studying – just twenty minutes of sleep can improve your concentration significantly.

Setting goals for yourself can also help you keep your stress under control. Being organized will not only give you a sense of calm and preparedness, but it will also feel like an accomplishment when you achieve those goals; but make sure those goals are realistic and attainable. You should ask yourself what you can truly accomplish; unrealistic goals will only make you feel more stressed.”

And what happens if things don’t work out the way you imagined, or despite all of your preparation, you went completely blank and could only scratch together an answer, or you know you wrote a lot, but you have the impression it is completely incoherent. What should you do now? Just calm down!

Remember, no matter how badly you think you did, you won’t know for sure until the results come in. Spending that time speculating on what you may or may not have written, or worrying about what will happen next if things go wrong, will not change the outcome and will only make you feel more stressed and worried. Even if things go wrong, you will almost certainly be able to retake the exam(s), or you may be able to make up credits by taking other courses. It's never the end of the world, and there's nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed of. Sometimes, whether it's exam season or just a difficult time in life, we need someone to help us navigate it, so don't be afraid to reach out.
