How can exams be less stressful? Exams are a good tool for learning. If it is well-managed, it would bring you more good than bad (aka stress). And the next question will be… How to manage it?
As long as you keep up with the pace of the class and do your revision regularly, you shouldn’t be faced with much stress. Stress usually comes from the humongous pending workload. As long as you clear those in time, your stress can definitely reduce by half.
Exams are good because it allows you to gauge of where you’re standing among your peers. As long as you don’t be overly concern or taking your results too personally, the exam papers helps you to identify your areas of improvement. On the other hand, if your results turns out to be better than your ideals, it also helps to boost your morale.
By doing plenty practices, it gets you to be exposed to the different types of questions and exam structures. However, avoid jumping straight into the Ten-Years Series too quickly. Get your basic right and other things will fall in place nicely. Skipping a step leads to weaker foundation, thus making you feel confuse easily when new chapters and content are introduced.
Make it a habit to clear your doubts with your tutor or teacher regularly. If you’re unsure, go and ask your teacher. If you’re taking tuition, all the more you should be asking. Always remember, you come school or tuition to seek knowledge so you should be bringing home more knowledge and confidence rather than doubts!
