Sixteen-year-old Salmun, a student of class 10 at the Government Girls Inter College (GGIC), Rajpur Road, has been under pressure. She is all set to appear for the board examination in March and the practical exams have already begun.

“In such a situation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Pariksha Pe Charcha’ came as a great stress buster,” she said.

Over 650 students of class 6 to 12 were glued to the live telecast from New Delhi’s Talkatora Stadium from where the PM spoke about managing exam stress.

“Our PM said that parents put pressure on children to score well. But it’s only because they want the best. He asked every student to give their best and those who work hard never fail,” said Ekta, a class 12 student of the school.

At the model school in National Institute of Visually Handicapped (NIHV), students heard the broadcast on radio. “It was great to hear him (PM) and I was touched with his gesture of addressing students during such trying times,” said Kewal, a student.

Both government and CBSE schools organised the session and the teachers made sure students take tips from Modi. Nearly, 2,500 government schools organised the session for six lakh students in Uttarakhand.

“Our teachers’ counsel board students as we understand there’s peer pressure to secure better marks. But, such a session will actually help motivate them and boost their morale to perform better,” Premlata Baurai, principal GGIC said.

The chain of Kendriya Vidhyalayas, too, made arrangements for the students. The students gathered at auditoriums and grounds and attended the session.
