‘ My daughter is in class 8th. She is a good student but during exam time, she gets quite nervous. Due to nervousness she is unable to write the answers in her exams. She is unable to score good marks due to this problem. How can I help her in this situation?
This question was asked by a mother from New Delhi in the recent Feburary’19 edition of the prestigious magazine The Jagran Sakhi, I have replied to this query in the article ‘ Time Management is very important’.
We often notice that our child has made a schedule to study the test portions and has been zealous in finishing her revision. It seems he/ she is well-prepared and confident to face the big day.
However, on D-day, catastrophe strikes. The question paper is deemed too lengthy and he/she is not able to finish writing all the answers. Moreover, in the rush to finish on time, some questions have been misinterpreted.
Is this a scenario, that some of you parents are all too familiar with? Does it seem that some children, however hard-working and ardent in their studies, lose out during exams because time ran out? The biggest problem here is ineffective time management strategy.
Here are some tips for parents that they can follow during their child’s examination period:
- Don’t pressurize your child for getting good marks, instead support them emotionally during exams.
- Prioritize your “to-do” list the night before or first thing in the morning. This will keep your mind focused on the most important task first.
- Developing a study schedule for all tests ensures that adequate time is given for learning each lesson and subject.
