Procastination— it is something all of us are guilty of, no matter what we are currently doing in life. It is a habit that we pick up when we are in school, and by the time our education is complete and we step out into the corporate world, the habit is so strong that it feels inbuilt and we are doing it most of the time, consciously or unconsciously.
Procastinating is the reason behind the exams students don’t perform well in. it is the evil that is responsible for children not performing to their full abilities. Instead of starting preaprtions for an exam at least a fortnight early, children are most likely to begin a couple of days prior to the exam.
Exams need to be given the same level of importance, whether it a normal test during a session or the final term exam. Completing preparations in one day prior to the exam and hoping for the best result is a hard feat to accomplish and cannot be successfully pulled off every time.
The best way to go about preparing for an exam is to begin planning the day the test date is announced. Outlining what needs to be done and delegating some portion of the preparations to each day is an essential step that needs to be taken in the beginning. Following that plan to the dot is what will ensure continued success in all exams.
Giving exams their due importance from the beginning instead of attempting to tackle them a day before will ease the burden and help students plan better and accomplish much more than they would do so otherwise.
