How To Stress Less During Exams


When you're stressed about exams, the pressure can get to you. Before it affects your results, get on the no-stress express to score better and actually enjoy the studying process. Here's how a PC can help you:

1. Timing is everything

Nothing is worse than having doubts a day before the exam, hence, it is beneficial to begin studying at least a month before your first exam. The more number of revision sessions you can fit in, including solving question papers, the more confident you'll be on D-day.

2. The power of planning

Being a planner doesn't come so naturally to everyone and can seem very scary at first. However, with a tool such as Google Calendar, it is possible to have a clear-cut direction, know exactly how long it will take to complete a chapter, prioritise tough subjects and take breaks too!

3. Breaks can be good, too

Imagine studying non-stop all morning without taking a break. Either you'll get too tired, bored or both to study any further. To avoid such a situation, consider studying in sprints where you concentrate for an hour and play games for about fifteen minutes.

4. Talk it out

A problem shared is a problem halved. Children can create their own groups on social media networks or join a WikiSpace Classroom (a website where teachers and students can add their own content) to communicate with classmates and seniors to get doubts cleared and vent out stressful thoughts.

5. A clear mind equals a focused mind

When we're stressed, we often over-think and confuse ourselves. Mind mapping visually organises thoughts in one's head and helps to turn them into ideas for use, perfectly breaking down complicated subject matter into small, understandable chunks.

Besides helping you to stress less during the intense exam period, a PC has its uses all throughout the year. Right from project research to essay writing, a PC is your window to a world where learning is a lot more fun and interesting, increasing your chances of getting 10/10 on your projects.[1]
