Taking an exam isn’t just about studying, it is more about confidence. Some candidates feel nervous, some curious, some bewildered, some anxious. Exam anxiety is the experience of feeling an intense moment of fear or panic before or during the exam.
Stress is a temporary effect that could be beneficial if one decides to gear himself up for the challenge ahead or it could be devastating if it is allowed to overpower your capability.
Through this blog, we will see a few techniques that will help you overcome stress and perform well.
- Stay away from social media: Take 6 hours of sleep a day, try to eat healthy and when you decide to take a break, go for a walk instead of going on social media. Doing just this will help you focus better and reduce stress.
- Concentrate on your notes: Do not study from any online medium or any reference book at this time. Concentrate on your notes and trust them blindly.
- Don’t take anymore mock tests: Mock exams are supposed to give you an idea about your weak topics, however, this is not the time to study any new topic. Moreover, poor performance in a mock exam can stress you out.
- Do not let depression get to you: Most students at this time feel that they’ve forgotten everything, this thought doesn’t let them sleep and reduce their overall output. We want to tell you that you’re not alone, it happens with most of the students at this stage. Stay confident, you have not forgotten anything, it’s just in your subconscious memory. You will instinctively know the answer in the exam.
- Go through the important topics in all the subjects: Revising the important topics in the last few days is very important as much of the questions are expected from them.
