The stress caused by exams -- internal or board exams -- is so much that it drives students to take extreme undesirable measures. The fear of these exams cast dire consequences upon students. The time which the students could have used in having a focused preparation goes wasted in worrying for the exams. The ultimate repercussion gets reflected in the form of students performing pathetically in their exams.

Hence, the panacea to all these problems lies in robust planning followed by actually making the plan work by following it.

Here are 10 tips to get rid of board exam fear and anxiety:

1. Plan an early revision

By now, students might have completed their curriculum and started rigorous revision. For this reason, I would strongly advise them to practice solutions for the questions and problems related to their subjects.

2. Plan a productive timetable

To start for a robust preparation, formulation of a productive timetable is extremely necessary.
Hence, the subjects that the students consider lesser prepared, would rule their timetable.
Hence, I would advise the students give more time to these disciplines.

3. Draw plan for each day and each week

During their daily study, things like inclusion of the breaks and their durations, addressing their other important jobs etc, will need students regulate them on a daily basis. Hence, they must prepare themselves to deal with these each day.
Also, students may try sticking to a watertight schedule of fixing a few days or a week for each of their subjects. The approach will likely help them complete their preparation in a timely manner.
But, please be mindful for the fact that, it is better suited for the students having better preparation of their subjects before the start of the revision-period.
Also, the students can go for choosing the time of their study! If students desire, they can go for studying in the calm of nights or in the freshness of mornings! Or, they can select any time of the day, for this matter!

4. Consider incorporation of more subjects into daily studies

Preparing for the single subject for hours and hours may get quite monotonous for students. Hence, they can consider extending their devotion to a few more subjects in a single day.

5. Prepare notes

Preparing notes while studying will help the students immensely. These would provide them the facility of taking their support as and when they desire.
Furthermore, students can also opt for developing acronyms/quotes/poems for the answers described under various headings and which are quite challenging for them to remember.
Moreover, students can also use a highlighting pen for attracting their attention to words/phrases or (parts of) sentences they need to prepare, more quickly.

6. Involve your friends and talk to them

Let me warn the students strictly, in the first place, for the losses they may suffer if they let the beer and skittles moments of their friendship interrupt in their studies! An honest and sincere group study, however, is welcome.
Similarly, if students need an honest review of the outcomes of their efforts, comparing those with their friends is extremely necessary.
Contrarily, they may feel that the final outcome of this comparison is further reducing their levels of confidence. Hence, in such cases, they must avoid this exercise.

7. Practice solutions to question papers of previous years

Following such an exercise will provide the students the opportunities for refining their concepts. It will indicate their standing for the upcoming board exams.
The questions and problems in these papers will provide them almost the same environment as the actual board exams will provide them. This is because they will reflect the same pattern as will be there in the exams.
Furthermore, students can turn their study-room into a real exam-room if they stipulate their preparation with the general 3-hour limit.
Such an arrangement would really provide them almost real outcomes regarding their preparation.

8. Have a balanced meal

Exam preparation, being quite a demanding exercise, asks for the filling of the loss of nutrients, in the process.
Students must take a hearty meal filled with all the necessary five nutrients- protein, carbohydrates, fats, minerals, and vitamins, therefore.
The size of the meal, leading to their calorie-count, is also a point of consideration for which they must look into.

9. Schedule regular breaks

The students must consider the size, numbers and the ways to spend their breaks, when giving breaks to their preparation. They can fully avail this liberty here!
They must only be mindful for the fact that they need to maintain a good balance between their breaks and study session.

10. Sleep well

The duration of the sleep may depend on requirements from student to student.
Still, a 7-hour slumber would be an ideal one.
Moreover, students may go for dimming the light-bulb, or having complete darkness along with the option of running the music of their choice (but a melodious and soothing one) to fall asleep faster!
Students must not compromise with the outcomes of their efforts on preparation, come what may! They should increase or decrease things in any one, two or more of the 10 options discussed above.
Remember, board exams are not the period students should spend on the lounge. The scores earned through them do impact their lives, howsoever small or big they are.
Hope my little friends will pay due attention!
