Sonepat Weather needs to get it together.
The months of February and March give the chills to almost every student in India, with the winters not to blame.
I’d given my Boards not so long ago. One of the most nerve wrenching periods of my life so far. You start measuring time in terms of chapters. Attending events, become contingent on the completion of certain number of numericals or chapters.
Your sleep cycle goes for a toss.
I’ve been through it all. And since the boards are right around the corner, I thought I’d do my part and help out.
1. BREATHE- It’s completely alright to have anxiety, or nightmares of failing math. I’ve been there. The key is handling the stress and not letting it get to you.
2. BE CONSISTENT- Cramming the night before is a NO. It’s too important an exam to pull this off. Creating a Timetable definitely helps!
3. BOARD QUESTION PAPERS OF PAST TEN YEARS- I cannot stress enough on this point. It has helped me immensely in understanding the pattern of the papers and managing time.
4. TAKE BREAKS- We’re all well too aware with this point. Make sure to have a *reasonable* time off to flop onto your couch and spend time with non-academic beings.
5. GUIDES/ REFERENCE BOOKS- I would definitely recommend being thorough with your Text Materials before you begin solving advanced problems. The question formats are almost always from the Textbooks. Only after you’re done solving your textbook problems and if you have time on your hands should you move onto advanced materials.They may stress you out unnecessarily, however, if you’re working on clearing Competitive Exams, I wouldn’t stop you from attempting them.
6. Remember,this sheet of paper *will* not ruin/make your future.The Exam is only a stepping stone into your desired field. But getting the job you love, and living the life you’ve dreamt of, is a journey, in which the boards will play merely a marginal role.
You are so much more than your marks.
You got this!
All the best!
Lots and lots of love,
