Exams are around the corner and as a student you have multiple subjects and vast coursework to finish before you step into the examination hall. While it’s normal to be a little anxious, excessive stress and pressure on yourself is detrimental to your health and performance.
We have compiled a list of practices that can help you sail through exam time like a breeze.
It is also important to focus on these two aspects when preparing for exams. –
Celebrate Mistakes and Remove the ‘Fear of Failure’
We learn from our failures and setbacks. If you make a mistake, don’t be disheartened. Learn from the mistake and ask questions that help you prevent the same or similar mistakes in the future. Ability to learn from mistakes will make you a lifelong learner with the confidence to overcome any challenges.
Focus on ‘Conceptual Understanding’
It is essential that when you are preparing for exams, learn the concept and get clarity about the same. You can enter the amazing world of self-initiated learning where visual learning helps students like start learning on your own, understand and retain complex concepts. Watch ideas and theories come to life through videos and imagery, instead of just reading about it. This drastically improves your retention of concepts, reducing stress levels before exams.
Work towards understanding the learning material and strengthening conceptual understanding, it is the best long-term strategy to pursue. Create an ecosystem where you feel maximally in control while preparing for and writing exams, and one where exams are not perceived as being more crucial than they are. After all, studying to learn, engaging in stimulating discussions and seeking advice and direction from mentors is a much more fun approach that memorizing the course material by-heart.
All the best!
My mentor Raksha Chettri has been my pillar of strength from day one. It is her constant guidance and encouraging words that have helped me become a lifelong learner. A big thanks to her and BYJU'S - The Learning App.
BYJU'S app has helped me understand Maths and Science in a fun way. Now, I study from the app, understand concepts, and then go through my textbooks.
BYJU'S is the bridge that connects my imagination to my reality. The engaging study videos with real-life examples help me understand concepts not only from an exam point of view but as a lesson for life.
