9 PRACTICAL THOUGHTS FOR A TENSION FREE LIFE

This is perhaps something very common we feel during the exams, esp when the dates are near. You guys have read so much over the last one year and it all comes down to this and it is very natural to be in a phase where you try and revise everything you have read so far. Ideally when we browse through the books, we would want to remember everything we have read and try to recollect it all. But it so happens that when we try to complete the book, there is so much we don’t remember and it kinda gives us a jolt and we tell ourselves – “Hey I had read this, how come I have forgotten”?!

Well, there are two answers to this

– One is that you are a little tensed and trying to finish off a lot of things in a very short amount of time so that your brain doesn’t have enough time to access your memory part.

– Two is that you have genuinely forgotten and felt bad about it!

If you are really tensed – Here is a post which talks about 9 practical thoughts for a tension free life which will help you. However if it is the second one, I would suggest read the above post just in case :).

I think it is very natural for us to feel this above and is also natural to feel a little tensed about it and sometimes worried as well. But there is something we ignore when we are in this state of mind. I am not saying you remember exactly what it is but I am saying that you tend to forget the exam structure.

– Remember that it is not trying to ask you what all facts you can remember, it is asking you an application and you have choices in front of you

– You don’t need to know the exact right answer but you can do it with knowing what the wrong ones are

– They are trying to test your understanding and not how well you mug up some facts

– They want to see if you are smart enough to make that calculated choice or guess or an answer and go past it.

The trick is in not being a 100% right in a Multiple choice paper, the trick is in covering your base and then taking those smart risks. Always note that an exam is very well split between easy, average and difficult questions. If you don’t screw up the first two types, you should be able to sail through at ease.

So, don’t read too much into what you remember and what you don’t now. Just look at what matters to you and how best you want to maintain your state of mind. That will go a longer way for you.
