Calculation error? Missing Keywords? More than that, there is this one mistake that will cost you dearly if you are not avoiding it.
D for Doubt
Thinking that you cannot do it and doubting yourself is definitely the grave mistake that you would love to avoid. You will start questioning yourself. Thinking of all the worst possibilities. What if... What if... It is so dangerous that you can even consider 2 + 2 is a 5. The good news is we can solve this together.
Here are 5 Ways to Solve This Mistake.
Tell Yourself I Can Do It
The most effective method to solve any challenging heuristics problems, complicated science questions and weirdest composition pictures is to tell yourself you can do it. You have to believe you can do it, believe that you deserve it and believe that you will get those marks. And indeed, your mind is very powerful. It will happen as you imagine.
Focusing on Effort Rather than Grades
Easy to be said but difficult to be done. However, the results will be even more amazing than what you can imagine. Appreciate yourself for all the hard work that you have put in. Be glad about all the efforts you have put in all this while. Trust us, it is more precious than your marks.
Forgive and forget
Every after paper, forget what has happened and move on to another subject. Even if the paper is difficult, it is not the end of the world. If you really desperately need to release your emotion, deal with it in 15 minutes, 30 minutes or even 1 hour if you need to. After that, move on. You do not want to scare yourself for the next day.
Having Your Beauty Sleep
This beauty sleep makes more wonder than cramming the whole night. There is a virtue in work and there is a virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither. When you have sufficient rest, you will feel a lot calmer and your brain will function better.
Abundant Supply of Positive Vitamins from the Surroundings
More than the Vitamin C and chicken essence, these kids need a lot of positive vitamins. Instead of reminding them of the mistakes that they have always made during the practices, remind them how amazing the improvement they have achieved all this while, how meticulous they try to be, how amazing their arithmetic calculation or even how neat their working is.
It is tough for us who are standing by the sideline because it is not within our control. However, we are totally in control in helping them by not being panic and support their morale in any way possible. Kiss them, hug them, and constantly remind them that you love them no matter what the outcome is.
With this, we wish you all the best for your upcoming exams!
