Exactly two weeks remain for the Board examinations and it is time now for students to concentrate on working backwards after gauging where they stand.
Experts say it is time management that students must now focus on so that they can divide their time revising different subjects.
"Students who are sufficiently prepared are not very stressed. However, they need to be very disciplined and manage their time well in the remaining days," said career counsellor Usha Alburquerque.
But rather than taking up any new topic, students must ensure that they avoid stay up late at night. Experts advice they should revise during the day and get a sound sleep at night."Students shouldn't study anything new at this point and must revise what they have done till now so that they are thorough with it. They must make sure that their body clock is not erratic, for which they should study during the day and sleep well at night to stay relaxed," she added.
But at the same time relaxation should not be taken too literally. With time at a premium, students should avoid getting hooked on to social networking sites. Instead, they should try to revise their basics and recollect whatever they have covered so far.
"Time management, adequate sleep and revising whatever they have done so far are imperative. Students must now concentrate on strategic revision and avoid comparing themselves with their peers. They should also stay away from social networking sites to avoid wasting time," said Dr. Sameer Malhotra, senior psychiatrist at Fortis Hospital (Noida).
Students should also not neglect physical activity before the exams. Their routine, doctors say, must be punctuated by adequate exercising and a healthy, balanced diet.
"Students should go for walks and try out a few physical and breathing exercises to help them relax. They should also avoid eating very heavy food and eat nourishing food instead," he added.
