Last night i came across a piece of article where a newspaper has recorded student’s response to how they tackle that superstition we all been used to since childhood for exams.Some said curd- sugar helps, few temple Aarti, others favorite pen etc.
When i look back to see i find every student is inflicted with this although, it’s a pure senseless and baseless, hard work and concentration is what make us excel but our mind is quite full of wonders that can be tricked easily.
As far as my belief is concerned it changed with age – when i was kid my mom told me to say Namaskara to God and don’t cheat. When i was teenager i made that favorite pouch (geometry box) of mine to accompany me all through exams. In my Graduation, i make Red pen as my weapon for superb score, it accompany me every time and i hardly talk to anyone much before exam.
I think I’ll continue using this in my upcoming Master level exams, i don’t know if it will ever work wonders but if i can boost confidence with these then why not ?
What’s your Exam Mantra ? 🙂
