In today's highly competitive world, students face various academic problems including exam stress, disinterest in attending classes and inability to understand the subject. Exam stress is the feeling of anxiety or apprehension over one's performance in the exams. It can lead to students being unable to perform to the best of their abilities in exams.
The reaction of parents and friends to the results weigh upon the students to create exam stress. Lack of interest in the subject and inability to follow the professors cause disinterest in attending classes.
Being in touch with your daily lessons is a good idea. So are making timetables and sticking to them. Try to be regular in attending and concentrating in lectures. Last minute studying should be avoided and remember that a regular seven hours of sleep is mandatory for the body to function well. One should identify the best time and place for studying and this varies with each individual. You should be aware of the exact topics that are going to come for the exams and previous year's question papers should give you an idea about the exam pattern.
Taking regular short breaks while working helps one relax and concentrate for longer. One should always set 'realistic' goals in life and never let negative thoughts get into one's mind. On the day of the exams one should remain calm and stop being nervous. During exams, you could start answering the paper with the questions you know best and manage your time in such a way that you get to go through the entire paper. There is no point in worrying about your performance after the exam is over so just let it go. After relaxing for a while one should be able to start preparations for the next exam.
