How to remove fear when not prepared well in Examinations?
Success is invariably just a few yards ahead from wherever you stand. Failure happens when one quits before making the best efforts in the right direction. Hurdles appear when one loses focus on the target. Success takes birth out of struggle and this content is an attempt to encourage all such struggling people to live up to their dreams.
IIT JEE Examination season is back. In the coming months, millions of students will be writing their school/college examinations. At this stage, there is some good news for students who find themselves lacking in preparations, – “Partially prepared can also win – rest assured that you still have your opportunity doors open!”.
The run-up to examinations is an awfully terrible phase in the life of a student. I come across many students who sulk under the pressure of expectations. I think, everyone goes through the phase of examination borne stress. Well, it’s not really the lack of preparation or the scare of being unable to answer the questions which bothers much, it’s actually the fear of embarrassment in the event of hitting a failure which creates the discomfort.
Few tips from NUCLEUS INSTITUTE KOTA which enable the student to bring out the best in the limited time available. Here I share those:-
1. Just map your mind
Use the mind mapping tools to easily memorize lessons. Use colour pens to underline, scribble everything that you read and revise with highlighted keywords. Look for mind mapping tools on the internet for ease of understanding. This IIT Institute Kota woks on that strategy only.
2. Simulate examination
If the IIT JEE examination time is morning 9.00 am to 12.00 noon, it would be useful to practice sitting on your study table at a stretch during these hours every day. This way you adjust your body clock which in turn will support your mind to function well while the examination. If your examination centre is at an unknown place, you must visit the centre a day before, to establish familiarity – it helps.
3. Avoid Discussion
Some students avoid discussing their feelings about their preparation – this is not a healthy habit. JEE Mains and Advanced Coaching Nucleus Education passed the message for those hesitating students who afraid to reveal their doubts & issues also for that the mentors says – Discuss your plans, talk about your list of pendings/accomplishments with your parent/guardian/ counsellor or elder brother/sister (but not with your peers).
4. Learn Art of elimination to the useful topics
In our Nucleus Best Kota Coaching Center teachers teaches that If you have not been able to study the complete syllabus till now, don’t aspire to finish it all. At this stage, it might be sensible to master a few chapters and ignore the rest! According to your love of the subject, the confidence gained in the respective topics and taking a cue from the previous year question papers, identify the subjects which cater to the probability of attracting maximum numbers in the examination – focus on those & ignore the rest. Well, this calls for an intelligent elimination and you would do well to consult your teacher in giving you some hints in the process!
5. Don’t compare yourself with others.
It is a very common habit of students. Asking friends as to how ready they are for examinations is an absolute ‘no-no’ – never do so. Let me share a secret – no student is ever 100% prepared! However, when someone boasts about his/her preparation, comparison creeps in and actually fractures your confidence! Focus only on your work, forget friends. In that way in the eye of Students Nucleus Institute is the Best IIT Coaching Center.
6. Be Positive
It would be useful to think positive, irrespective of your level of preparations because thinking negative will in any case not help you in any way! If you revise your strategies using the ideas shared above, I am sure you will definitely get better with confidence and gain an edge over others.
7. Take a Break
While preparation you need to take a little break. Every moment seems precious While preparing for the reputed Exam like IIT JEE as it is the most toughest exam in the fields of Engineering which needs hardship for study. But when the piles of unlearned topics tease at you. You should take at least Five minutes of ‘recharge break’ every 50 minutes is ideal. It will help you in a great way. Remember – A word of admonition here – you should not jump on to your internet screen (smartphone/computers) in this break time. Instead, do meditation, just lie down peacefully and take deep breaths, listen to some soothing music or walk around in the garden etc.
Note:- Sleep is one big casualty before examinations – beware of it. Never compromise with rest. Sleep debt attracts heavy penalty in terms of poor performance in examinations! Take Healthy Diet & take proper rest as well.
