Help your children deal with exam stress

Filed on February 22, 2020

I appreciate the views expressed by the educators in the article Students, keep calm and sail through exam season in UAE (KT, Feb 22).

Tests and examinations are an integral part of the learning process. An ideal student should develop a positive and committed attitude towards examination. He/ she should consider examination as a pleasant and challenging experience. Moreover, learning to write an examination is as important as studying. Here, one should develop the skill of presenting what is really required by the examiners. Accuracy in this regard is to be achieved through regular practise. At the time of preparing for exams one should never think or worry about the result.

I have a few tips for students: carefully read all the instructions before starting to write. Neat presentation, legible handwriting should be a priority. Check the time after every one hour, and increase or decrease the speed of writing accordingly. Keep 15 minutes towards the end for final revision.

Parents and teachers can play an important role in enabling children to give their best in examinations. Good luck to all.
