The thought of board exams nearing may lead to stress to many students and parents. At times, it is often seen that students suffer the most due to their lack of stress management skill, leading to physical and psychological distress in the form of anxiety, overthinking, eyes strain and even body ache, which hampers their performance in exams.

Besides, some parents are too much consumed by the idea of being their children to be one of the best performers in their batch or school or their neighbourhood. The children are pushed into a rat race that sometimes leads to serious repercussions.

MyGov Assam, in order to de-stress the board examinees, is inviting ideas from parents, teachers and all others concerned to exchange their ideas and tips on overcoming exam stress so that the students perform their best.

Help your child get enough sleep
Good sleep improves thinking and concentration. Most teenagers need 8 to 10 hours' sleep a night. Learn more about how much sleep children need.

Allow half an hour or so for your child to wind down between studying, watching TV or using a computer and going to bed, to help them get a good night's sleep.

Cramming all night before an exam is usually a bad idea. Sleep will benefit your child far more than a few hours of panicky last-minute study.

Make sure your child eats well
A balanced diet is vital for your child's health, and can help them feel well during exam periods.

Some parents find high-fat, high-sugar and high-caffeine foods and drinks, such as energy drinks, cola, sweets, chocolate, burgers and chips, make their children hyperactive, irritable and moody.

Where possible, involve your child in shopping for food and encourage them to choose some healthy snacks.

Having someone to talk to about their work can help. Support from a parent, tutor or study buddy can help young people share their worries and keep things in perspective.

Encourage your child to talk to a member of school staff who they feel is supportive. If you think your child is not coping, it may also be helpful for you to talk to their teachers.

Try to involve your child as much as possible.
