A big ‘Best of Luck’ shout out to all class XII students across the country, who are anxiously gearing up for their CBSE, ICSE and other State Boards annual examinations.
Yes, I know that you are burning the proverbial midnight oil to get a hold on the subjects that you had chosen for yourself two years ago. By now, the subjects would have started to make sense, and many of you are even thinking of planning your career around some of these subjects.
You may be a pro in one, but slightly struggling in the other. Don’t worry about it, and instead find the best way to maximize your strengths.
Sometimes, you might feel that you are hurtling towards the approaching vortex of the ‘BOARD EXAM’. May be some of you even get this sudden nagging fear at the back of your head, haunting you: ‘what if I forget it all the moment I get my question paper?’
We’ve Got The Best Board Exam Tips For You!
Relax! It’s a very common anxiety and is something that can be treated right now! Here are some tips to help you let go of that anxiety and concentrate on bringing out your best.
- Make a habit of getting out of your bed or that comfy chair and try to study on your desk
- Keep a bottle of water near you and drink it from time to time
- Keep your table neat, with only the essentials you require for a particular subject. Once the time for that subject is over, put those books aside and take out the books for the next subject
- Take a ten-minute break every two hours and just walk around the house. Have a biscuit or a fruit and come back to your table
- Listen to music if it relaxes you or maybe even helps you to concentrate better
- Keep a revision slot for every subject in your daily schedule
- Take mock tests to help you time your exams
- Get to bed around 10 pm and set your alarm for 5 am. Don’t miss out on a good night’s sleep and keep off that snooze button
I’m calling on each of you to set your own goals for your education, and to do everything you can to meet them.
Don’t procrastinate too much and try to tackle those difficult questions head on. Keep listening to your teachers and ask for their help whenever you feel you’ve hit a wall. Most of all, don’t shut out your family and spend a few minutes with them during the day.
As difficult as it may seem, try avoiding Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter just for a few months. Do not disturb or be distracted by friends who keep ringing up to discuss each other’s progress. Be selfish, yes you heard it right!
Yes, Board Exams Can Be A Struggle!
But treat the Board Examination as an opportunity to give a good performance and graduate from school with flying colours. This is the chance to help you get your preference of college and bring that proud smile on your parent’s faces. Every single one of you has something you’re good at.
Every single one of you has something to offer. You have a responsibility towards yourself to discover what that is.
Good luck children! Stay positive, stay upbeat and go through the experience called the ‘Board Examinations’ with open eyes and a positive frame of mind.
Blessings and love from your teachers and parents!
