We know it’s that time of the year.
It is the exam time.
We understand all that you’re going through.
And to help you out,
we have made many videos which speak about exam tips
and what you should do to improve your score.
You may find the links in the description.
But in this session, we will tell you ten things
you should not do before your exams.
So during your board of exams
you may have a gap of minimum two to three days
between your papers.
Uh……sometimes it’s just one day
or you may also have back to back exams.
So you need to know what to not do during that time.
So without wasting much time, let’s start.
The first thing not to do is
do not use social media.
Yes, you heard me right.
Try as much as possible to fight the urge of using your phone.
It’s an addiction which takes away most of your time.
So what happens is
you start by saying “Hi”
then your friend replies “Hi”,
然后你们开始交谈 开玩笑 笑个不停
then you start talking, forwarding jokes, laughing
then later you may even check your Facebook world
to see what your friends have posted.
And then you also feel like posting.
Later you would want to see how many likes
you’ve got on that post.
So the story never ends.
Without realization, you lose so many hours
with so much distractions and unnecessary thoughts in your head
which does not allow you to concentrate on studies.
The second most important thing not to do is
do not ask the most common question friends ask each other
during exam preparation.
How much have you finished studying?
Yes, friends. We have all done this.
Everyone has asked each other
how much you’ve finished studying.
But I’ll tell you why not to ask your friend this question.
So let’s assume your friend has finished studying 5 chapters
and you have finished only 2.
So that very moment tension sets in.
And you start getting negative thoughts in your head
评级低 分数差 你的抱负和未来
about low grades, low marks, your admission, your future.
Then you try rushing through all the chapters
to reach your friend’s pace,
compromising on the quality of studies.
And suppose that you friend has studied less than you.
Then you get relaxed and slow down your preparation.
So, very important point to know here is
do not compare your preparation with anyone else.
Next, talking to your friend
you’ll get to know which books they are referring to.
And if it is different from the one you have used
then again you get tense.
You will go out of your way and buy that new book
just before your exams.
So this brings me to my third point
do not change your book at the last minute.
Do not try any new book.
You NCERT textbook or your respective state board textbook
with any one reference book is sufficient.
So stick to the book you have been using all throughout the year
Next thing not to do before your exam is
procrastination. Never procrastinate.
If you have three days’ preparation leave for your exam,
then divide the hours according to the chapters equally,
and use the first two days well.
If you keep postponing your studies,
you will end up piling a lot to do for the last day,
which will make you tense.
Next, do not get influenced by the method and the way
or the timetable that your friend is using.
You are unique.
Use the strategy that suits your way of learning.
Your friend may finish all the easy chapters first
and keep the difficult ones for the last minute.
But you may like to study the difficult ones first.
So it is OK whatever you’ve been doing all this year
just stick to that strategy and do not copy anyone’s strategy.
Next thing not to do is
try not to change your timetable at the last minute.
If you have to study for five hours in a day then you have to study
Get some determination to achieve that goal.
If you want to know how to make a timetable for studying
we’ve made a video on it.
You may find the link in the description.
Next, if you have left any chapter for option,
do not try to study it just a day before the exams.
Stick to what you’ve already studied
and spend more time in revising your content
rather than studying things for the first time.
Next thing not to do is
try not to just read the illustrations
or go to diagrams and flow charts.
What I mean is
illustrations, diagrams and flow charts are very important.
But after reading it, or going through them,
time yourself and write the answer based on it.
It’ll give you more confidence
to attempt questions.
This method is a very effective way for revision.
Next, a simple thing students should not do just before exams is
do not eat outside food.
It may make you sick at the wrong time.
Eat home cooked food which is easy to digest.
Also, eating heavy food will make you sleepy.
So keep your meals light,
and have a lot of vegetables and fruits.
Also, uh, make sure that you do not hurt yourself in any way.
So try staying at home as much as possible
and giving your time only to studies.
And at last, all the videos keep saying
get a sufficient amount of sleep just before your exams.
But that does not mean that you sleep more.
as it may make you lethargic and lazy.
A sound sleep for 6 hours is enough during exams.
If you have trouble sleeping
or you get nightmares
and you wake up at odd hours in the night
Then watch a relaxation video, it’ll definitely help you.
So, uh, these were the ten things
that you should not do to improve your score.
Lastly, remember have confidence in what you’ve done.
Exams do not judge your potential
or do not judge how smart and intelligent you are.
They are just a part of your life.
So take it with a smile
and all the best for all your exams. Thank you.
