    (please note: This same article posted on 17th, below, is looking blue, so posting it again)
    First and foremost, preparation starts right from the beginning of the academic year. We cannot deny the importance of having enough time for planning and preparation because learning happens all through the year.

    I stress up on paying full attention to class room teaching. If classwork, homework, and revisions in the class are done with concentration, half the battle is won.

    Every evening, we sit and go through what was done at school and usually go through the next chapter before its dealt in the class. We give importance to reading; not just textbooks but also other age appropriate reading material as this improves vocabulary, language skills and knowledge.

    When exams are few days away, I let the child decide which subject he would want to tackle first and find out why. Kids are quite intelligent and they communicate well as to which are their favourite subjects and which are the subjects they need extra help with. That helps us make a rough timetable so that revisions are done by the time exam starts.

    Kids of different age groups need different approach:

    My little one needs to play every day and needs more breaks while the older kid can sit longer in a neatly organized study table.

    So with the little one, I incorporate some of the learning during his break time without making him feel the stress or using the word study and indirectly prepare him to some extent. When the child is in a relaxed mood, I read the chapters and make it interactive by making it a discussion to make it interesting. I use charts, pictures, and diagrams. Before bed time, we read something worthwhile. During revisions/study time, I stress on writing also. Our elders used to say a proverb in Hindi Sau baar bolna ek baar likhna, which meant writing your subject and making notes once is hundred times better than just reading it. Writing helps you register your subject well in the mind.

    With older kids, they can make their own time table with some guidance, solve old question papers, do combined study, explain what they learnt to other children and help each other in revision, and plan their breaks with some monitoring. They need to manage their time and energy.

    Finally, during exams, we give the kids lot of confidence and good wishes to do their best and help them do as much revision as time permits. We also ensure that they eat healthy, get some fresh air, and a good sleep. These are the efforts we put in so that the kids approach the exam in a positive way.

    Exam is not The Only valuation of one kid's overall performance...this is what I used to say my son when he was small. This is a moral boost to a kid from the aversion of exam and it helped him in many ways.
    I do not want to chart down points regarding tip's. Charting and marking down important questions by a mom with bold letters or sketching in marker's itself feels a kid,an emotional fear....it has to be done by him/ her on one's wish....
    Everyday after he returns from school, I've not checked his notebooks rather talk to him his class activities,about his friends,teacher and his playtime during break...This rapport between us made himself to show his notebook and inform me about his homework or test ...so everyday,he himself tries to finish his homework or test preparation... unless he gets any doubt ,I will not interfere his study time...but would have an eye wheather is he going on right track. Everyday learning ( if it skips a day,I will not worry) makes a kid easy to be carefree during exam...my son had the habit of writing answer's and ask me to correct...same way for the math.
    For any subject, basics has to be strong... all kid's are not same ...
    Parents are The First Teacher to a kid,be friendly always, teaching once or twice ( if he asks for a doubt) is ok for a day...if he goes wrong ,I will switch over to different subject or ask him to play for a while...no fixed time for his studies...but he himself will have the feeling that he didn't finish the chapter for the next day...this self realisation gave my son to do his own studies by himself...
    To be honest,all day are same for my son...be it a regular school day, monthly test or exam...
    To sum up,rely your kid when they study,do not interfere unless you are needed..all kid's are not same ...do not compare the marks with other classmates...this creates jealousy among kid's and of course mother's too... I've not been a frequent visitor to my son's school or class ,to inquire about my child's performance...until I'm called for PTA meeting...
    Build self confidence,moral support and especially when they get low marks ..Exam is just an evaluation of already compiled book knowledge, it has nothing to do with a kid's talent or interest.. Appreciate your kid all time and never compare or depreciate even once..
    As I said ,this is how I brought up my son ... Tingle the love for learning...this is my Tip for Exam...only a mother know how to do?

    5 Tips to success
    1. Only if there is a wall; can there be a drawing.
    As the saying goes, the top most priority in exam preparation is Childs health. Try to avoid outside food as much as possible. Light food will enlighten the childs mind set. Kids usually consider even a small injury as something big. This will make them loose their self confidence. Only when the kid is physically fit he/she will be prepared for the mental competition. So make sure that the kid is happy by soul and healthy by physic.
    2. Where there is a will; there is a way
    Motivation plays a vital role in a childs growth. As parents are kids world, a small word of cheer can make the child reach great heights. The kind of motivation a kid needs may vary. Some need a hug at the finishing line, while many would like to run along them to reach the finishing line. It varies.
    3. If not now; then when
    Encourage the kid to learn then and there. Try to complete the portion before hand and summarize the key point. Better avoid learning any portion new before the day of exam.
    4. No lessons; only concentration.
    Rather than teaching a subject for hours together, teach the kid to concentrate. With higher concentration level a kid can complete the given work as fast as possible. On the day before exam may the kid get some sound sleep, so that his/her mind is fresh to concentrate. Concentration power cannot be attained in a single night. Constant practice is necessary.
    5. Self analysis.
    As young kids, most of them will not be able to analyze themselves. The one and only selfless being a kid have are his/her parents. Parents should start analyzing the kid, which cannot be done over night.Analyse the positive and negative side of the kid. The one good in mathematics need not be the best in science also. Direct them to analyze themselves, so that they work on their weak side.
    These are my rules as a parent to success.Hope it is informative.

    Create a practical study plan
    Students usually spend more time in planning than actually executing those plans. Planning is art of the possible. So, create a plan which can be successfully executed. Give more time to topics which you find difficult and keep a buffer so that you can complete some pending tasks.

    2. Know your strength and weakness
    Everyone has specific strengths and everyone has specific weaknesses. Its pretty certain that if you are not clear on your weaknesses then you are not clear on your strengths either. Playing to your strengths and sailing through the weaknesses is the best exam strategy you can bet on.

    3. Use fewer books for theory
    Students have a habit of referring innumerable books for each subject even though most of them convey the same thing. Having too many books would lead to confusion during time of revision and most of your doubts would remain unresolved without a go to book.

    4. Read the questions cautiously
    Examiners try to trap students by playing around with the question and options. So read the question carefully to understand what is required and see the options with great concentration. Watch out for the questions which are designed to have more than one correct answer and you are supposed to choose the option with multiple correct answers.

    5. Plan your exam strategy
    Planning the way you attempt various questions is quite crucial to crack the entrance exam. You do not have to approach the question paper the way it is intended to be. The important thing is not to waste time over questions which seem to be difficult. Finish off all the sections which you are really good at so that you can dedicate more time for the difficult ones.

    6. Train your mind for the exam
    Your mind should be prepared to perform well during an exam. This requires consistency over a long period of time. If you are planning to give your exam in 9-12 slot, you should practice solving papers at the same time so that your mind is trained to be super active during that period.

    7. Practice previous year papers
    Practicing previous year question papers should be left for the last couple of months before an exam. These are actual questions which have appeared and you should time yourself while answering them so that you can compare your scores. Also, try to attempt the test papers in the same time slot as your final exam.

    8. Use our cheat-sheet to revise formulas
    Our experts have created cheat sheets which you can refer anytime you have a doubt or forget a formula. Revise these cheat sheets weekly and if required get them printed. It includes a comprehensive list of everything you will ever need to crack your entrance exam.

    9. Use method of elimination
    Whenever in doubt use method of elimination to your rescue. Start by eliminating 2 options which have the least possibility of being correct. Sometimes irrespective of the question, the fact contained in the options itself can be used to eliminate them. Selecting a final answer out of 2 is sometimes tricky and if its worth the risk you can go with your gut at times.

    10. Learn all the shortcuts
    Every student has shortcuts which they use to prepare for entrance exams. Be it for remembering formulas or memorizing charts, use shortcuts to save your time. There are some standard shortcuts which you can tap into but creating your own wouldnt harm either.

    11. Stay Physically and Mentally Balanced
    Keeping yourself and your mind healthy is quite neglected during exam preparation but it can have adverse effects in the final outcome. Exercise daily and sleep well so that your mind and body are fresh when you are taking the exam. Avoid sleeping late and tune your mind so that it works best in the time slot of your final exam.

    12. Practice, Practice, Practice.
    Finally, there is no substitute for practice. 70% of exam preparation is practice. Use this time very effectively by using our platform which can help you plan, save time and improve accuracy

    1. Give yourself enough time to study

    Make a study schedule that fits your way of studying and do not leave anything for the last minute. While some students do seem to thrive on last-minute studying, often this way of partial studying is not the best approach for exam preparation. Write down how many exams you have, how many pages you have to learn, and the days you have left. Afterwards, organize your study habits accordingly.

    2. Make sure your study space is organized

    quick tips for exam preparationMake sure you have enough space on your desk to spread your textbooks and notes. Ensuring that the room is sufficiently bright and your chair restful enough are also points to consider. Pay attention to details that can distract you and remove them from your study space. Make sure that you feel comfortable in your study space and that you are able to focus. For some individuals, this may mean complete silence, while for others listening to music helps. Some of us need complete order to focus, while others like to study in a more cluttered environment. Make sure your study space is friendly and
    pleasant so that you can fully concentrate.

    3. Use flow charts and diagrams

    Visual aids can be especially helpful when revising study material. At the start of a topic, write down everything you already know about the subject. Closer to the exam, transform your revision notes in a diagram. In that manner the visual remeberance can aid to your readiness considerably when taking the exam.

    4. Practice on old exams

    One of the most effective ways to prepare for exams is to practice with an old version of previous exams. Also, an old test will help you see the format and formulation of the questions and it will be good for you to know what to expect but also as a worthy practice for measuring the time you need for the actual test.

    5. Explain your answers to others

    With the help of your family and friends, you could excel on your exam. Explain them your reasoning for why you have answered a certain question in a certain way.

    6. Organize study groups with friends

    Study groups can help you get the answers you need and finish tasks faster. Just make sure the group is focused on the subject and they are not easily distracted.

    7. Take regular breaks

    Regular breaks are needed for the brain to regain its focus. It is not the best tactic to study long hours because long-term retention of knowledge is almost impossible. The most important part of studying is to develop a routine that fits your study style.

    8. Snacking on healthy food is good for the brain

    You should not eat unhealthy food while you are studying. Keep your body and brain fit by choosing natural, fresh and vitamins rich food that is good for you and would improve your concentration and memory.

    9. Plan the day of your exams

    Check all the rules and requirements for the exam. Plan your route and the time it may take you to reach your destination then add on some extra time. You do not want to arrive late and deal with even more anxiety.

    10. Drink plenty of water

    While studying for exams and even during an exam, it is advisable to drink water. Remaining hydrated is vital and adds to your overall positive mood.

    At this outlet, let me seize the chance to enter preparation tips during exam time with valuable life lessons which I observed from my educational life. I hope it may get utilise by my kid and every child at later stages. To be honest, I being a scholar student had a severe exam phobia. I used to cram the answers and fill numerous answer sheets in exam hall. I thought my student life was satisfactory. As I entered motherhood, that satisfactory life didn't helped me to live pratical base living. Some valuable lessons I would like to share are: First and foremost, each day life itself is an examination solving different types of questions. The responsibility of studies by student is to be taken during entire year without immense pressure by parents. By this way, A child learns to carry every drop of water by himself/herself at later stages. Second, Time as one of the valuable resource once allocated properly for studies and play by parents, that helps the child to invest and manage Time in near future. Third, mental and physical health maintained throughout the year helps a student to think optimistically. This way, a child learns to be happy and content by coming in adulthood. Fourth, the concept "Work while you work, Play while you play" develops concentration/focus in child's mind. This helps a child to accomplish tasks easily at later years. Fifth, Expecting and comparing a child for more grades is one of the loosing battle instead analysing, inspiring and enhancing child's interested field is a winning battle. All in all, as you sow, so as you reap. A child's grooming depends upon level of understanding of parents with love, support, care, discipline, patience. Aforesaid lessons are to conquer inner self from childhood so that it may get easy to crack the examination levels later on in an adulthood.

    Exam times, I feel, is about studying smart and studying hard..
    The saying perfectly fits here- Rome was not buit in a day This applies well with exam time preparations...
    One cannot master each subject just before the exam- One has to start their preparations much before hand..

    Here are few tips that I advice my kid to follow:-

    ?First and foremost, I have advised him to make a study schedule that fits his way of studying and giving enough time for each subject.

    ? I also tell him not to leave anything for the last minute.

    ?Practicing on old exams papers gives much confidence and makes him familiar with the exam environment. This also helps him to be calm.

    ?Another tip which I usually tell him to follow is to explain his answers to others in the house or tell his answers seeing himself the mirror.
    This tip is an amazing one as I, as a child, used to follow this and now I advise my kid to do the same. it really works wonders.

    ?Organising study groups with friends- This is another wonderful tip, I as a child, always used to follow it and I teach my kid to do the same.. It boosts ones confidence..

    ?Along with studies I encourage him to take short breaks too, so that he can take some rest and ease around...

    ?And yaa, this is the most important part- One has to Plan the day of his examinations..It will make him more organised.

    ?Last but not the least, I advise me to drink plenty of water. This helps him to be hydrated and tension free...

    ~Exam Time-No Tension Time~

    'Emotional support'
    Exam period is very stressful situation for children. Child a emotional support from their parents like parents should not pressurized them to study hard .Just make them comfortable and take care of them by spending some extra time with them and also try to help them in their studies.
    Good food
    A refreshing food items can bring more energy into the children so it's our duty as a parent to provide good food item of their choice to motivate them and to keep them energetic all the time.
    Good atmosphere
    As parents we should not talked any serious issue or problem in front of children at the exam time . otherwise their mind can be diverted.

    1. Encourage Plenty of ZZZs
    Sleep deprivation is significant sincewell-rested studentstend to be healthier and more alert. I make sure that my child has plenty of sleep throughout the year, and I also pay extra attention to sleep patterns when its time for school exams. According to a survey, children 613 years oldrequire 9 to 11 hours of sleep, and teenagersneed 8 to 10 hours.
    2. Tie Study Techniques to my Childs Learning Styles and Interests
    We make test prep as fun as possible! Kids have different ways that they prefer to learn, including visual, verbal, social, and solitary, and as a parent I have a good idea of which learning style best fits my child. It should be effective to match test prep activities to my childs learning preference. Tying test prep to interests can also provide an extra boost of motivation. For example, I can incorporate common state test skills such asreading, math,science, and evenhistoryinto cooking lessons for my child who enjoys cooking.
    3. Seeking Out Extra Help
    Young learners often gain an advantage when parents seek out extra help for state tests. Such help comes in a broad range of possibilities: study groups, tutoring, learning programs, and computer programs, to name just a few.
    4. Remain Calm
    Parents can convey their anxiety to their children easily, which often tends to increase the pressure that students feel. Naturally, parents do not want their children grappling with issues such as sleeplessness, decreased appetite, and panic as an important exam looms; instead, parents need to project a tone of positivity and encouragement.
    5. Familiarize the Child with the Exam and Environment
    When something becomes familiar, it usually loses its mystique and hold over a student. Students also tend to feel more in control and more empowered when they know exactly what to expect.

    Support and Stress Management
    A childs preparation for exams is a stressful process. With large portions to cover and concepts to comprehend, it sometimes pulls the student into a downward spiral of brain drain and anxiety. The parents play a very important role here because the only people who can understand this is either the parent or the teacher. In most cases, when the student is preparing at home, it would be very helpful for the student if his or her parents kept a tab on the state of mind. One of the main reasons for stress is a comparison with peers and not meeting expectations. A supportive and forgiving parent can make a huge difference in the life and outlook of their child.

    Keeping Options Open
    It is good to be focused on one task but sometimes this can take a bad turn if that one crucial examination falls through. Sometimes students get so engrossed in their prep for a particular exam that their whole life revolves around it. If they fair badly in the exam, the consequences, mentally and morally, turn out bad. It is all well and good for parents to encourage their ward to put in maximum effort, but it also their responsibility to keep their child grounded. It is left to the parents to make sure their child knows that there is life beyond exams.

    Avoiding re-Schooling
    Most students learn the chapters/concepts in school and most probably read them again in their coaching classes. Going through the entire days syllabus again creates disinterest in the subject. Practice makes perfect, but excessive revision makes one tired and uninterested. Some of the worst things in a students mind are linked indisputably to exams. Some parents go to the extent of cross-checking all the answers of the question paper right after the exam. It simply adds to the anxiety of the student. Though logically this seems reasonable to do, it does take a toll on the mental health of a child.

    Avoid Comparisons
    This is something most of the middle class parents tend to do. Although unintentional, this can cause very long term impact on their kids self esteem. And other than the low self esteem, this begets a tendency in the kid to seek drive through comparisons which is a long term curse and takes a long time to undo. So, in all possible ways comparisons should be avoided. Not only should parents stop themselves, they should deter the child from doing so.

    Healthy Food Habits
    Obviously this is something need not be told to the parents. But during the preaparations, students tend to give less importance to everything other than their studies. And in this line of negligence, Food habits affect the most. Unfortunately its effect isnt very apparent. The last thing the parents would want is their kid to fall sick to a disease. So, this is something parents have to look after, because probably their kid isnt heeding it.

    At the end of it, children involuntarily learn a lot from his or her parents. Especially during a trying time, they look up to their parents subconsciously and get affected by their positive or negative behaviour.

    Sumathi Anand Mar 12 2019

    1.Being there emotionally

    During times of exam kids or of more stress, children usually need extra nurturing, comfort and understanding from their parents and carers to help them feel secure and confident. We have to be open and receptive to how children are feeling as well as provide comfort and attention when needed.

    2. Discuss feelings

    We must Encourage children to talk about how they feel. Listen with empathy so they feel understood and know that their feelings are normal. Help our children to understand that talking about feelings can help to manage them.

    3. Support childrens confidence

    By teaching children to be brave by showing them we believe they can do it, and encourage them to have a go even if they are feeling nervous. Providing positive feedback for effort, celebrating successes and encouraging them to keep trying will help our children to feel confident in approaching assessments.

    4. Help with relaxation skills

    Breathing slowly to calm down and helping them to imagine themselves coping well during a test are really helpful ways of managing anxiety. Doing it with them is a fun way to start.

    5. Teach helpful thinking

    Instead of saying to themselves I cant do this encourage them to say Ill give it a go.

    6. Lead by example

    Show your child how you cope positively with feeling anxious or stressed by thinking out loud e.g., I feel a bit nervous, but Im going to try my best. Remaining calm and positive when your child is feeling anxious can help them to feel more confident.

    7. Help our child have clear expectations

    Talking through what will happen. We may even wish to talk to the school about where the test will take place and see if we can visit beforehand. Many big tests can be held in the school hall or even off-campus.

    8. Discuss problem-solving

    Brainstorm situations that might arise during the test and then come up with possible solutions with them. For example, ask them what are three things that they might be able to do if they freeze in the exam and feel sick possible strategies include taking 10 slow breaths to calm down and refocus, taking a sip of water if it is available or letting a teacher know they feel unwell.

    9. Teach confidence-building tricks

    For example, looking through the paper and completing questions they know they can answer first before trying more difficult ones.
