Knowing how to solve a problem is one thing and solving it is another.
One should be prepared to encounter both of the above-mentioned parts succeeding in exams.
There are many times when you get frightened while preparing for exams when you don’t have any clue as to what you should do. Can you relate to what I’m saying?
Let me give you an example-
Suppose you are at your centre for NIMCET, you met an old friend and started asking standard competitive–exam questions. To each of your questions, the guy answers in a way such that you feel a little inferior in front of him, especially when he asks you some tough questions and you are unable to answer them. In spite of the fact that you are also a good scholar, you still feel low. Nevertheless, it does not end here. During the exam, you are stuck on a question and you are not sure about your previous questions too, whereas a guy sitting beside you is doing his paper at a rate that is suggestive of the fact that he is confident about all of his answers and he is in such a hurry so as to avoid the predicament of missing out on answering some of the questions on account of the lengthy nature of the paper.
I am sure those reading this post do not want to encounter such a scenario on their exam day.
And this was just one of the cases that can happen on exam day. Such situations can also arise before the exams- during the course of preparation.
I am not saying that they can be fully prevented (as it’s something that is not in your control) but can be minimized in a way such that they do not affect your confidence.
Some of the tips for a clear performance under NIMCET pressure are-
Focus more on yourself
Since only around 7 days remain for exams, you should avoid talking to those people who consume most of your time and leave you with confusion. And by this statement, I do not mean that you don’t talk to them, just avoid having discussions with them, as it will save you most of the time and you will be able to maintain your calm.
Let me give you an example- When I used to study for my exams, one of my friends used to discuss tough Maths problems with me and at the end of about half an hour of discussion, leave me with the fact that I don’t have my basics sorted out in Maths. And not just this half an hour, it used to remain in my subconscious for the whole day, and I used to waste more valuable time thinking about it, as you all might know students tend to attach a little part of their ego to the solution of a certain question. I spoke to my sir about this, and he suggested that I should avoid that friend of mine during exams and it worked! Moreover, you can check out some useful ideas to cover your doubts.
Share your feelings
At the end of the day, tell someone how your day was. To anyone, your mother, your sir, your girlfriend/boy-friend anyone you feel, who truly wants you selected. This will not just make you content, but you will also get to know how you could do better.
If you don’t have anyone, maintain a diary and start writing in it. When you will compare your previous day’s performance with today, you will see yourself, the difference, and start working on it. This strategy will allow you to remain consistent in the amount you study every day.
I did the same, I maintained a diary in which I used to write what I did since morning to the point of time I was writing, and the next day the same task was repeated but then I used to see the difference of labour between the two days and start compensating for that from the next day.
Manage your peers and performance
Sometimes parents who are concerned about your studies tend to encroach upon your schedule and constantly pester you by asking you what you did today, you can’t simply tell them you screwed up your day. Try to be normal. If they understand, tell them the truth as was pointed at point no. 2; to tell someone about your day. But if not, just lie to them that it was awesome. Trust me; it’s for your own good.
And yeah, I don’t need to tell you how you can judge the fact if your parents understand you. You must know them by now.
Revise and revise some more
Revision at the end of the week is very important, your analysis and concepts, whatever you did during the whole week need to be revised, otherwise, all that hard work will be in vain. Thus, we bring you our practice papers that you can take in the form of an online test series for gaining knowledge about your preparation.
Set realistic goals
You should always begin with setting an achievable and realistic objectives. You can ask your parents or mentors to help you with this task.
It is understood that you might have some unanswered questions about your future in the unprecedented time that we live in. It is wise to seek the council of your teachers or parents. You can visit a career counsellor so that you have a healthy mindset before your exam.
Declutter your desk
A cluttered desk generally signifies a cluttered mind and it is said that a cluttered desk also overloads your brain and impairs the ability to focus with 10 leads to stress. It is a scientifically backed claim.
Read for leisure
No, you should not read only the textbox but also read for pleasure even if it’s just 15 minutes between your study break. You can catch up on a book or a novel that you have been reading or willing to read.
Lastly, on the exam day, don’t meet anyone new or your old friend. Just say hello from a distance. This point is really important; your whole strategy can be reversed after talking to that person so please avoid him/her. When the exam is going on, think that you know everything and the person sitting beside you is a fool. If he is doing something, I think he is wrong. You have to believe in yourself and give the paper. It’s your life and nobody can control it but you. So, come-on guys, brace yourself NIMCET is coming.
