Undue stress can affect the final performance by adding unnecessary anxiety which leads to self doubt and can be a route to careless mistakes.
Students should pause, reflect and choose their desired path that can help them overcome the stalemate situation and not just wait for the wave of crippling apprehension to swallow them into oblivion.
The following tips should be kept in mind while getting ready for JEE (Advanced):
1. Take proper sleep
For some students, staying up late at night to finish the syllabus is a common ritual and a harmful practice.
The benefits of a proper night’s sleep should never be underestimated. Sleep helps your brain to assimilate new knowledge into your long-term memory so that you can recall it during the exam. Whereas, lack of proper sleep is said to decrease concentration level and increase anxiety attacks.
Hence, it would be wise to say that early to bed, early to rise, keeps the students bright and wise.
2. Indulge in indoor games
Open up your mind through tactical games such as chess, Sudoku, mine swipper. Indulging in recreational activities is a welcome change to the stressful and monotonous preparation of JEE.
It helps student to unwind while opening up the thought and logical lobes of the mind. For instance, chess helps in sharpening up the logical skills, something that one needs to develop while preparing for JEE.
3. Do some meditation
Often, exam time fills up an aspirants mind with chaotic, negative thoughts.
Meditation can be a great way to clear the mind and let positive thoughts in. One can simply take a break for about 20 minutes and sit somewhere comfortable, close his/her eyes and let the mind wander.
Easy visualisation through meditation helps to reach the root of any problem and solve it, efficiently, leaving the mind refreshed and more confident about the lessons cover.
As they say, the key to reaching the pinnacle of success is to channelise the Buddha in you.
4. Eat healthy food:
Students are known to skip meals while engrossed in their long, arduous study sessions. Eating adequate meals at the correct time prove to be beneficial as studies show that people who eat breakfast tend to perform better on exams.
A steady diet consisting of proteins and whole-grain complex maintains the blood sugar level. Consuming dark chocolate, with 70 per cent cocoa, fights the stress hormone cortisol and induces relaxing, alongside releasing endorphins which act as a natural stress fighter.
5. Bring out the artist in you
During the intense preparation for JEE, students are often caught up to such an extreme extent that they forget the surroundings, including their inherent talent and hobbies.
Indulging in an artistic activity helps in bringing back the apt perspective in times of these chaotic days.
Be it dancing, singing or painting, one shouldn’t give up on their hobbies in lieu with the maddening preparations. Having an artistic side acts as a balance to the scientific temperament that one inculcates, so go ahead and bring out the artist in you!
While exams may be a time to make or break, through the above smart tips, one can reach for the stars and even be able to achieve it.
Wishing students good luck for their exam.
