Exams are round the corner..


Technically no. They are NOT round the corner.

Are they??

Think again.

With most of the students getting ready for exams over the month of March, and many of them getting ready for what is called the most important exams for children in India – the "Board Exams", there are many children walking around stressed out about what to do.

I had the opportunity to talk to a couple of my nieces, who are appearing for their 10th standard ("Board" exam), and they are not sure where to start and how to go about it.

Think about it. Most schools spend so much time and energy completing their portions by March. Then, then prepare, and make the children go through "preparatory" tests for almost 3 months. 

Not ONCE, do they spend time, teaching these children "HOW" to read. "How" to build their memory, how to PLAN the time they need to use- and WHAT they should study.

I went through my school (looking back, I am not sure how :)), but things have not changed! 

The goal of this blog is to try and ensure that I share what I can with the broader audience. If some of the students are able to use the tips- then I will consider this to be a worthwhile effort.

This is obviously work in progress- and therefore, do spend the time to look at all the entries- as sometimes, I suspect they may not follow a particular order.  I will also try to upload some files, which I hope will be useful to you.

All the best.. Students & hmm.. parents!
