Circular – February, 2020


31st January, 2020

Dear Parents,

Greetings from Doon Public School!!

The month of February brings the academic activities towards completion when syllabus of all subjects gets over and revision starts. As the students are going to face their annual exams, somehow they undergo the stress of exams. Exam stress affects most students in varying ways. It is important to manage this stress and find little ways of helping to eliminate the risk of burnout.

Here are some handy tips that can help to dissipate stress and make sure your ward can get through exam season.

1. Take regular breaks and schedule in fun things to look forward to
Even the most intense exam timetables will allow a little time for a study break. This can include 20-minute breaks during revision day, and longer activities that a child can look forward to. The child may go out for dinner with friends, play with them or anything that the student likes doing in spare time that will take his mind off exams.

2. Exercise and get outdoors
Easily one of the most frustrating things about exam season is that it seems to occur just as the weather brightens up. Students can use this to their advantage and go out for a walk, or a run, or head to the gym or swimming pool. As well as keeping the students healthy, exercise is known to boost their mood and can help to make them more productive while revising.

3. Don’t (always) listen to others
The old saying goes: "comparison is the thief of joy". While it is helpful to discuss topics with fellow students and often to revise together, try not to compare other pupils' revision to your own. Sometimes it happens that a child is doing just fine, and listening to other people talk about what they’ve learnt will only stress him out and may make him feel like he is not progressing as well as them.

4. Speak to someone
If the stress gets to a point where it is overwhelming, and is affecting your ward’s day-to-day life, ask them to speak to someone about it. their school should have a service where they can speak to people about their concerns, and will be able to offer more advice on how to manage it..

As our first batch of Std. X is going to appear for Board Exam, Doon Family wishes them a grand success so that they may spread the name and fame of the school everywhere with their shining results.

Some quick ways for students to help eliminate exam stress

  • Watch a TV show or listen to a podcast or comedian that makes you laugh.
  • Drink some herbal tea or a hot chocolate. It’s a well known fact that hot drinks are known to soothe the soul (avoid too much caffeine though!).
  • A shower or a bath can help to relieve stress.
  • Cook or bake something. Just the thought of having something delicious to eat can bring you joy. As a bonus side note, try and cook something healthy too. You can’t feed your mind well, if you don’t feed your body well.
  • Get some sleep. The virtues of a good night’s sleep during exam season should not be underestimated.
  • Keep things in perspective. Yes, exams are important. But you are so much more than your exam results.
  • Be flexible. While having a revision time table is one of the best tools in your arsenal for exam success, don’t be too hard on yourself if you don’t stick to it. If you accidentally oversleep, don’t write the day off.
  • Write down everything you feel like you need to do and try and tick one thing off. Just the act of feeling like you are in control of your revision can help.
  • Spare time for playing games as games make the students much more energetic.
