A Strong Foundation Building For Your Child Is A Must: Start Before It’s Too Late

CBSE board exams = STRESS

Is there more stress amongst students for CBSE board exams?

Yes. Due to COVID-19, the change in pattern in different education boards has made it increasingly difficult for students. 

The pattern of exams, different centres of examinations, COVID-19 cases, and much more has affected a lot of students who are going to be writing the CBSE board exams.

Now, keeping that in mind, stress is natural. Board exams are an important part of your career as it provides a stepping stone to the college of your choice. 

But does the stress help you study better? 

Or even, perform better in your exams?

However, when it comes to CBSE board exams, there’s a certain level of accountability that comes with it. Where you know that it will affect your career choice and choice of college. 

But first, 

How do you know if you are suffering from exam stress? 

Are there any signs?

If there are, what are they?

Some of the most common signs of exam stress are:

  • Loss of appetite or eating more than usual.
  • Constant fluctuations in emotions.
  • Loss of interest in other activities.
  • Difficulty in making decisions.
  • Little to no sleep
  • Loss of motivation to study
  • Constant feeling of anxiety

So now that you already have taken that stress (even though you know it doesn’t help), let’s take a look at how you can tackle it!

Time Management

We know you might have heard this a million times, “Manage your time, you’ll manage your stress!”

But is it that easy? No. 

However, keeping that in mind, having a schedule can not only give a structured approach to your studies but allows you to have some free time in between as well. 

It’s important to give time to your physical health and sit back to prioritise your mental health as well, especially during a stressful time like the CBSE board exams. 

Setting Goals

This time, the CBSE board exam is different. There were changes made across different boards that have made it slightly more difficult to write the exams compared to before. 

But, setting goals is something that still carries importance in the preparation process. And, its importance has increased. Having a focused approach to the subjects, chapters, and other components can help reduce the stress that comes with studying multiple subjects. 

You can start small with daily goals. And, once you notice that you’re able to achieve them, you can shift to weekly or even monthly goals. This can not only help in studying but also in practising different tests or referring to other textbooks. 

Health First, Always

Often due to excessive stress, students including you may tend to ignore your health and sleep. You may sleep at odd hours, or not sleep at all. Eat more than usual or not eat at all. These are some of the classic signs of stress in general. 

However, you being students, it is important to give your health the top priority and not ignore it due to the exam pressure. 

If you are finding it difficult to manage your health during the board exams, you can follow the 3-7-7 rule. 

3 meals in a day.

7 litres of water.

7 hours of sleep. 

Of course, writing about it is easier than actually doing it. But, all you have to do is take a step forward to keep your health first, and then everything else.

Many times, more than the exams themselves, students stress about the way forward.
