In today's education system board exams bring nervousness, fear and anxiety to most of the students. It is one of the major challenges that every student has to undergo to come out successful in life.
I am writing this article for those students who are struggling hard to deal with the pressure of the board exam.
In the first part, I suggest how to study and what mistakes most of the students do at the initial stage. In the second part, I share tips.
I have named my approach "chill and fill" and here chill refers to necessary breaks one has to go for after studies which give necessary rest to the brain and fill refers to fill up all the gaps that may come up after learning any topic by way of revision and discussion.
The mistake most of the students does is to take all new topics at a time to learn when they see exam is fast approaching. The human brain works in a particular way and once information is fed to the brain it takes time to settle it in the subconscious mind. And before one information is properly set if new information keeps coming chances of draining or lapse will be high.
The diagram shows that students take up most of the topics at a time when exams are fast approaching and they don't actually get time to revise or make it permanent in their brain. And all their efforts go in vain.
I recommend regular pyramid for every student.
This diagram follows that most of the topics need to be covered in the initial period and as time rolls out one needs to pay attention to revision and little or no further addition to a new topic.
While studying "Self-rewarding" in the form of chill out with friends and relatives is a must for every student.
Two things student must do while exams are approaching first to fill all the lapses or deficiency in previous learning by way of revision and discussion and second to chill out to give relaxation to brain.
Most of the parents expect their children to be in study mode 24*7 but in truth, it's not possible as the human brain has certain limits beyond which it can't function. Chill out with near and dear one is a very good idea to accelerate brain working in young minds.
Many of the students might have missed the initial pyramid and now facing the challenges of memorising large number of topics at a time which is a daunting task for anyone.
I recommend 10 -15 mins meditation every day to make the mind calm and settled. The calm mind can do wonder in the exam. The meditation coupled with chill out at regular interval is a good idea for latecomers.
