ITANAGAR, Nov 24: The Career Counselling Cell of Dera Natung Govt College, Itanagar organized a special motivational lecture on ‘Overcoming Examination Stress’ at the college premises here yesterday.

Delivering the lecture, DNGC Principal Dr M Q Khan discussed various aspects of the examination related stress and elaborated on effective ways to overcome the same. He emphatically mentioned that it is very much within the capacity of students/aspirants to overcome examination stress by virtue of maintaining utmost discipline, punctuality, daily routine, confidence, determination, strategic focussed preparation, organized healthy lifestyle, hard work and foolproof preparation. Students should study sincerely right from the beginning of the academic session and avoid all sorts of distractions, especially the addictions to the internet and social, electronic media.

Negativity and pessimism can never do any good. The need is to be positive and optimistic in all situations by understanding and appreciating the brighter sides of everything. Excess use of the internet on mobile, laptop, computer can cause sleep disorders, memory loss and affect mental health by contributing to stress.

‘Best’ books, dependable study materials relevant to the syllabus and pattern of examinations are of paramount importance, he said.

Tendency to leave on tomorrow, tomorrow and tomorrow by shifting the work of today to the next day and so on and so forth accumulate the examination stress. This needs to be understood that the work of a year can’t be done within a month or week. Maintaining continuity and regularity in preparation and doing lots of practice to cultivate skill and ability to write clearly, coherently, precisely and correctly is key to overcoming examination stress as most examinations test writing ability as you write answers in examinations.

The lecture was attended by more than 200 students, who were happy to interact and clear their doubts and confusions related to examinations. The lecture was coordinated by Dr A K Pandey.
