As the clock keeps on ticking, each second passes away and time marches on. With your exams being just 25 days away, every hour, every minute and every second counts. This is the penultimate round of the first major challenge in our life and if we are patient and careful enough, nothing can dip stop us from achieving victory. It is the first time you all are appearing in a public examination and whose results will be a milestone in your career. So its normal for all of you to be under a tremendous amount of pressure.
It is very easy to break during times like these and I am here to tell you that there is nothing to be afraid of. All of you have worked tremendously hard and have given your 100% effort even though your parents and teachers might refuse to believe so. All of you have come a long way and your journey is at the very end. So just keep up the effort you have been giving all this time. Remember that there is nothing new to learn and everything that is in your syllabus had already been taught. So just keep on revising. That’s your only mantra to success right now. After all we have heard of this phrase “Practice makes perfect”.
As you all know that the total percentage obtained by a student in the Secondary Examinations are based on the highest individual marks of 5 subjects out of a total of 6 subjects. By now, you all should know which subjects are your strength and which subjects aren’t your strong suit. Choose your best five subjects wisely and strive to score the maximum in them to improve your overall results. Your “Best of Five” percentage matters the most.
Most importantly, keep on in appearing for mock tests. Only then will you be able to detect your weak areas and work on them. The mock tests will help you to maintain your confidence too. However don’t overdo anything. Studying continuously for 7 or 8 hours without any break will do more bad than good. Always take breaks in between to give your brain a chance to completely absorb every bit of information it is being fed. Lie down and think about the last thing you were studying or maybe meditate or just go out and take a walk. Breaks are very important.
Also, maintain a permanent sleep pattern. You should get yourself at least 8 hours sleep. Otherwise, your body will be deprived of the necessary energy it needs to function properly. However, breaks are required but at the same time you must study for at least 10 to 12 hours in a day and must solve all the moderator papers specifically designed to get you the best results in the boards. Just keep these things in mind and I wish you all the very best for your exams. I am sure you all will give it your best shot. Good Luck!!!
