Tushar Sinha, a Class 12 student of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Danapur, is not worried for March 1.
“Right now, I am revising what I studied the whole year. That is my only strategy,” said Tushar, whose board examination will commence on aforementioned date.
Class 10 student of Gyan Niketan, Ambuj Ujjwal, is also stress free for his board examination.
“I am taking eight to nine hours of sleep every day and study during the remaining hours with adequate breaks. I know that taking stress would only make my mind go blank,” he said.
The examinations are pretty taxing for students as pressure to perform during the period is extremely high. There were also mixed feelings among students as to which subject to opt and some of which they find a bit tough.
“I find mathematics the most interesting, as it is all about understanding the basic concept,” said Sinha, adding, “I am confident that I will perform well.”
On the other hand, Ujjwal, though not overstressed, finds Chemistry a ‘little too vast to cover’.
“Balancing the equation, learning the periodic table and chemical name of every element are difficult,” he said.
