How To Prepare For CBSE Board Exams

Ques: How do I deal with CBSE Board exam related stress?

Ans: Recognize your negative thoughts. Once you closely examine these thoughts you'll see how unrealistic they are. Challenge the thoughts that say you are a failure and that you can't succeed. Remind yourself that it was just another exam and with effort, you will do better in your next attempt.

Ques: What if I do badly in CBSE Board Exam?

Ans: Replace self-criticism with self-correction. Judging yourself harshly now won't help you do better in the future. Take the position of an observer. What if a good friend told you he had failed? Would you call him a failure? Most probably you would emphasize his good points and help him put the situation in perspective.

Ques: How do I deal with my family's disappointment if my results in CBSE Board Exams are not good?

Ans: Be open and honest with them. Share what you feel about the result and what you think went wrong. Reassure them of your concern and efforts. Above all, do not have a negative bias against your parents because sometimes they need more reassuring than you do.

Ques: What if I don't get the marks I'm expecting in CBSE Board Exams?

Ans: Concentrate on your achievements and be realistic about your expectations as well. Usually we know when we have made a mistake, so take these into account while drawing up expected marks. If you are still dissatisfied with the results, the option of rechecking is always open.

Ques: We have heard of irregularities in the assessment system. What if my marks are adversely affected?

Ans: Have faith in the system. There will always be rumours about unfair checking, but one cannot ignore the fact that results over all these years have majorly been fair.

Ques: I think there is too much pressure of CBSE Board Exam and I can't cope with it.

Ans: Take professional help. If you feel that there is pressure and you are unable to handle it and your self-esteem is coming down and you are unable to cope, then you must consult a psychiatrist to help you tide over this phase.

Ques: Everyone tells me to concentrate on my studies during CBSE Board Exam.

Ans: Don't stop enjoying life. One of the common mistakes an individual makes is to totally change his lifestyle. This is under the assumption that if he isolates himself from all leisure and fun times with friends and family and only study, then he will do better.

Ques: How much sleep is required during Board Exam?

Ans: The human body requires an average of 8 hours of sleep per day. But there is no hard and fast rule. Each one of us has to understand our body rhythm and know by trial and error how many hours of sleep keeps us fit.

Ques: What happens if we sleep less than what our body requires?

Ans: If you sleep less for a day or two your body can cope by if you sleep more over next two days. If continued for long then the body gets into what is known as sleep deprivation syndrome because it accumulates so many hours of Sleep Debt. Then you get symptoms of feeling tired and sleepy, headaches, body aches, poor digestion, inability to concentrate, irritability, short temperedness etc.

Ques: Should I study in the morning or at night at the time of CBSE Exam?

Ans: First understand whether you are an owl or a lark. IF you can get up early in the morning and feel fresh then you must sleep early and get up early and study. If on the other hand you can study late at night but cannot feel fresh when you get up early to study then you must sleep late after studying and get up later in the morning.

Ques: Why exercise during CBSE Board exam time?

Ans: Most children will say they have no time for exercise during CBSE exam days. They are already stressed out with lack of time, how can they waste time in exercise? The fact is that exercise is all the more necessary during exam time because not only is it a “stress buster “ but also has many other health benefits needed to keep fit during exam.
