How to prepare and face exams before taking it

Updated on November 11, 2013

How to face exams

Exam time is coming and everyone is getting ready for their board exams.  This is the time of tension and pressure for both parents and students.  I would like to give some advice for the parents as well as students.  Parents needs to keep their cool during these days.  They may tempt to pronounce curse and foolish words when they get angry.  Don't do that.  It may stirrer the feelings of your child and he/she may forget what he studied.  This is the time to encourage and build confidence in them. To make a good environment for the children to study, parents should remember the following things:

Things to be remembered by Parents:

1. Allow children to close their books and take rest during the long study hours or allow them to watch cartoon for 15 minutes.

2. You should be ready to play, walk or work in the garden with your child, when your child is tired by his studies.

3. Before your child go to the school for exam, pray for him/her and give a kiss.

4. Make sure that your child is reaching the examination hall 5-10 minutes before the scheduled time of exam.

5. Pray for your child when your child is in the examination hall.

Things to be remembered by the Children.

1. You should study your lessons before the examination. Not on the day of examination.

2. It's better to buy a book which explain "How to study" and learn how to study which will help you a lot.

3. Do not study in the day of examination. Sleep well and take a bath before you go for exam. You may just look at the short notes prepared by you. Laugh by reading a joke or looking at a cartoon.

4. Take a good breakfast

5. Make sure that you are having pen, pencil, hall ticket, and other items for the exam before you leave your home.

6. Before starting the exam, got to toilet. Drink a glass of water or eat a chocolate or Cadbury.

7. After the exam do not compare your answers with other children till the end of all the exams are over. It may discourage you.

8. While studying, if you feel tired, take a walk or play with your dog or do some skipping or water the plants at the garden. If you are swatting, take a bath before resuming your studies. Talk to your parents and laugh or make them laugh.

9. If you are having tension, pray or ask your parents to to pray for you.

10. To reduce tension, play a song and dance according to the tune. A good dance can reduce tension. If you are not a person of dance, do some exercise while listening the music.

11. Avoid junk food. Eat fresh fruits or fruit juice which will enhance your capability.

12. You should have a timetable for study, play, sleep, bath, prayer, food etc. from the time you wake up till you go to sleep. You should have a timetable for everything.

Best wishes for your exam

      Excellent advice. Taking exams are stressful. I used to think that cramming the night before was better. Not so! Burned myself out. Preparation is better for young children in grade school and for college students.

      Hi, youcanwin. Your advice for students and parents at exam time is to the point.

      I would add that being prepared is the best guarantee of achieving a good grade on a test.

      By that I mean studying your notes every night. And when you take the notes originally, emphasize what the teacher is concentrating on because that information is generally what you will be tested on.
