How Does One Cope with Exam Stress?



Exam stress is by far one of the crucial reasons for students under performing after adequate hard work. Irrespective of how studious an individual is, the stress factor always pulls her or him a notch down. The situation tends to get worse as the exam date approaches, throwing the students into bouts of depression when all a person wants to do rationally is to revise or study.

To come out of this, one has to act consciously to prevent the situation from getting aggravated further. Taking anti depression pills is clearly not the solution. The primary important task for a student to prevent all these might be to prepare for the coming examination taking a little bit of time in hand so that the end moment panic does not set in.

However as students we all tend to keep our work load till the end of the exam month or perhaps few weeks earlier. If a student wants to utilize the limited time then one has to study instead of over stressing. This can happen with adequate short intervals between intensive study hours so that a person can relax one’s mind to grasp faster without any fussing.

Along with the above mentioned method of studying one has to sleep to give the mind proper rest. Listening to music is one of the best ways to get rid of exam related or any kind of stress. If breathing exercises are done for a few minutes before sitting for a study session, one can avoid stress to a greater degree. Above all one must remember that there is always a second chance and exam does not mean doomsday. It is an evaluation process and students can always do better the next time.
