If your mom goes berserk at you for going for a game of soccer during exam time, trust me, you are doing the right thing by not listening to her. Exams don’t mean you have to be a bookworm. Take your time off from studying and do something, which excites you. It helps in relieving you off your tension for the paper the next day. And by the time you return back to your fat books on science or other subjects, you are all geared up to take care of it.
Laughter is also a good way to kick the stress out. If you don’t feel like laughing in such tenuous situation, watch some sitcoms or rent a DVD of comedy films which can tickle you to laugh hard. And then share it with your friend and both of you have a hearty laugh. It will help to de-stress you and you will feel good to start again.
Sleep enough the night before your exam so that when you are required to be agile, you don’t get fatigued. I’m talking about the examination hours. Get as much rest as possible the previous night. It’ll helps you relax and face the challenge the next day.
Try to be at the exam centre on time so that you don’t have to rush things up. You are already in a confused state with all those equations and formulae that you mugged the previous day. So chill and reach the centre before time so that you get acquainted with the surroundings.
It’s true that stress can’t be avoided during exams but you can at least see to it that it doesn’t spoil the hard work you have put in while studying. Stress to a certain level is fine as it keeps you going on, but too much of it is harmful. So keep yourself tension-free.
