With exams, taking stress is natural. With the exams coming near, students have to be more focused towards their study. Students should spend quality time while learning and revising each and every topic vigorously. Taking stress and tension simply results in wasting one’s time.

Here are a few tips mentioned, which one should take into account while studying to avoid stress and give exams smoothly without getting panicked.

Don’t Overlook Sleep 

Sleeping is very much necessary during exams. The body gets too exhausted while studying and it is only during sleep that the body gets replenished to study again. Minimum 6-8 hours of sleep is necessary, and do your best for the rest of 16 hours. 



Eat Healthily 

Make sure you avoid all the junk food and stick to the greens and a healthy diet. Diet during the examination. 

Stay Hydrated

Make sure you keep all the liquids going on throughout the day. Put down coffee for a while and start having fresh juices, smoothies, tea or water while you study. Hydration is very much necessary so that you are able to concentrate fully.



Take Small Breaks

Studying regularly without taking any breaks, will make your learning inadequate and you might not even remember anything in the long run. Make sure you take small, frequent breaks after completing a chapter. During that break, you can either listen to songs or simply play with your pet. 



Organize your Study Routine

The Heritage School – the best ICSE school in Dehradun understands all of these problems and to combat all of them, below a few tips, have been mentioned in the light of what food to eat and what to avoid,the one that will help your little one fly and score high!

Eat smaller, frequent meals

Eating small meals will provide a stable supply of energy to the exam drained the brain.If a large meal is served to the child then he/she will experience a dip in energy and also the alertness to study for hours on end.

Have a healthy, nutritious breakfast

Except for breakfast, small meals should be served. Breakfast plays a major role in everyone’s diet. Try serving a combination of whole grains and proteins, because only the breakfast will keep going that energy in your child while he/she writes that exam.

Pay attention to snacks

Make sure no high amounts of fats or sugar are served as snacks. Instead of going for such snacks, opt for baked ones. Not only do they replace high contents of sugar and fats but are tasty as well.

Ensure the exam time diet is rich in essential omega-3 fatty acids


Omega-3 fats play an important role in memory, concentration, and even relieving depression.Studies have found omega-3 fatty acids, especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), have shown to increase the brain volume.Sources of omega-3 fats in the diet: Oily fish like salmon, mackerel, tuna, halibut, trout; seeds like flax, chia, and melon seeds, sunflower also provide omega-3 fats.You can make a powder of the seeds and nuts and sprinkle them over soups, dals, salads, chapatti flour.


Water is your best friend

It is important to stay hydrated. Ideally, drinking 1.5 liters of water a day is recommended.
Coconut water, buttermilk, milky drinks, some special tea like chamomile tea can not only help meet the recommended fluid intake but also help in providing nutrients and provide a sense of calm.

Coffee and Exams

Coffee is seriously not recommended for students. It is dehydrating and definitely not a good beverage to be drunk in the night. Instead, if coffee is drunk during morning and that too in moderate amounts can actually help with alertness and not cause issues with sleep deprivation.

Here are a few points which are needed to be kept in mind for all those appearing for the class X exams.

1.The complete list of formulae, experiments and derivations should be kept handy.  Prepare a separate list containing all the important ones and stick it up in your room.

2.It is a strict no-no to miss the science laboratory lectures and classes. Utilize the science laboratory as much as you can for every single experiment.   Ask your teachers all the doubts you have. The teachers are there to help you.

5.PHYSICS-Get a grip on the fundamental concepts of the subject. A major part of the exam contains direct formulae- and theorem-based questions. Therefore, revise them thoroughly to solve questions accurately. They have the highest marks. Use the formulae and theorems extensively in solving various problems from last years’ papers, ICSE Sample Papers,and other model papers.

6.CHEMISTRY-The good news is this is a high-scoring subject, and also requires lesser time for preparation. Speed and accuracy in solving different problems can be acquired through the in-depth study of the subject and extensive practice. Read everything through once as it helps in memorizing it easier. Study the name reactions; make charts of formulae along with names and revise them as and when possible.

7.BIOLOGY-As the subject includes lots of diagrams, give special attention to important diagrams and their theory. Make sure you remember the important terms and their respective functions. Make sure you practice the diagrams enough. Try to draw a diagram wherever the answer requires. Biology involves learning and memorizing difficult terminology. Write such terms repeatedly so as to get familiar with them. Get thorough with the important definitions as the subject is mostly theory.

Scoring good marks isn’t a rocket science. Make sure you are thorough with all the theory and practice the numerical and diagram enough. Try not to cram and read it thoroughly once before memorizing.

Few parents keep on worrying too much about their child’s achievements. This is one reason that stops them from pushing their child to be more creative. Instead of asking what you achieve, you should ask your child did he enjoyed learning and what new he did he  learn. Motivate the kids to learn something new that will help them become different from others and creative.

But parents don’t need to worry now. 

The Heritage School- the top ICSE School in Dehradun, believes that not only students but parents also need guidance. There are certain tips for parents to follow and brush upon, to help and be fully supportive in assisting their children, who would soon be appearing for exams.

4. Tune in to the tale of their day and move on
Ask your child how their day was and ask them how their exam did. Don’t ask too much about the exam. This will do nothing but only increase the stress level of your child. Let them recite their story of the day and then don’t ask anything about it. 

5. Help them to keep up an all-around adjusted schedule
It is very important for your child to have a balance between studies and leisure. Make sure your child is not just into books 24*7 but is also able to take out some time and do mind relaxing activities, which might vary from, watching TV, listening to the radio, playing for some time, etc. 

6. Don’t scare away your child by overhyping the importance of the exam .Discuss the exam, but don’t overpay. The exam time is crucial for you as well as your child. When you tell them about the exams, it won’t be the first time; they already have been hearing about it a lot. Just discuss, don’t scare them.

7. Healthy mind resides in a healthy and active body
Making sure of your child’s health is a big concern during the exam time. Bad health can hamper your child’s performance in the exam. So be sure your child is eating healthy and getting all the nutrients desired.

8. Sleep is very important 
Some children complain of having sleepless nights before the exam. Make sure your child gets enough sleep before and after the exam. But also make sure that he/she doesn’t oversleep. If they complain of not being able to sleep make sure they are calmed down before the exam.
