First of all, we need to believe that examination is just another day and there is no need to create any hype or feeling stressed during examination. Anxiety or stress should not be the words in your dictionary and actually that do not exist in real world. They are just weeds in stagnant water and must replace them with hard work, focused attention and believe in god. What is required at this juncture is to bring ' Methods to Madness' and remain in focus, firm and fair.

And one thing to remember, certain bit of tension is required in order to get success in life. This is called creative tension. Totally stress free life is neither feasible, nor possible and even not desirable.


Having said this, we should not go overboard with preparation during board examination. Last minutes jitters are absolutely normal but it is crucial to make sure that we remain calm and composed in order to prepare judiciously. Being graceful under pressure during this period calls for smart preparation. Because besides academic readiness, we need to have psychological preparedness also in order to come out smilingly from examination hall. Do not fear unnecessarily. When you are believing in god and are already resigned to higher will, anger and fear should not affect your morale at this time.

Remember ' First thing first'. You must have made subject wise realistic time table that will ensure giving enough time to each chapter and giving little bit extra time to hard spots. Do not go for select studies.

It has also been found that during examination time, student start studying till late night or wake up very early in the morning thus hampering sleep and the exam is in the morning. Students feel sleepy in the exam hall. Making drastic changes in the schedule may disturb body clock which may further reduce attention span or hamper grasping powers. If one is accustomed to a certain pattern, one should stick to it - to the extent of minor alterations, say waking up an hour earlier than usual in the morning or studying for a little beyond the regular bedtime. At this time, one should only focus for self learning. Visiting coaching or tuition classes will prove simply wastage of time.Even one must avoid extra-notes, reference books and additional study materials at the last minute. Do not go for too much revision or solving sample papers at last minute. And lastly, eat everything and anytime but only healthy foods. 

So in short, be focus and firm and say ' No' to your time stealers, remain calm and cool, look for psychological preparedness, adjust appropriately your body clock with time clock and belief in god. Remember also that inspite of hard work, you may not get expected marks in exam and that may lead to not getting right college admission or right subject combination but still the life can be meaningful.
