Reducing examination stress

Examinations are a trying time for every student. The stress and pressure associated with it not only affects the student, but their families as well. DoctorNDTV.com conducted a survey, to find out what the students and parents think about the current examination system and what changes can ease the pressure and help students to face the exams more confidently.

A majority of people (73) felt that the university selections should not be based solely on exam results. Eighty-three percent people felt that a continuous assessment system will help the students cope better with the exams. Pre-examination counselling was considered mandatory by 86% people and almost 83% felt that students be judged for their extracurricular activities and not just academic performance. But there was a mixed response from people about abolishing the importance of yearly exams. However, 64% felt that students be allowed to choose their area of interest right from primary classes.
