Dr. Arvind Mungla " Avoid drowsy"
Regularity at work always pays off . Some techniques are useful for easily storing pages of notes . However, a healthy lifestyle is recommended.
Dr. Arvind Mungla advised to have a good mental and physical condition . We need a positive attitude towards exams. "Some students prefer the last moments , even the last minute to learn. Thus, they do not sleep and work all night and all day. This is not recommended. We must promote a work plan . " The general opinion is that the candidate needs six hours of sleep at least . Get up and go to bed at regular times , since fatigue is the main enemy of memory.
Food is another aspect not to be overlooked . " You must drink enough water, eat a balanced diet and not to excess. This will avoid feeling sleepy , "advises the doctor. He asked the candidates to focus on the work or other activity , to oxygenate the brain and stay focused . According to him, after one or two hours of revision , you must get up and indulge in a relaxation activity .
The doctor added that there is no miracle drug to pass exams . " There is no medicine multivitamin or mineral to help pass exams . You have to eat and drink and have a balanced healthy disciplined life , "says Dr. Arvind Mungla .
Raja Mohun : " Boosting his memory
"In this exam period , many head to the pharmacy to buy supplements for memory. But what is it really ? Raja Mohun , pharmacy manager Dauhoo , note that depending on the region , many students and parents are looking for the magic pill to boost memory.
"The drugs available on the market are treated. They must be taken on a period of two to three months before the exams and not the day of the events. It is necessary that the revision takes place at the same time . There is no magic pill for the day of exams ... " Raja Mohun noted that the average spending may rise to Rs 10 or Rs 12 per day. But there are those who spend more ... He advises interested parties to take medications and / or supplements that have no side effects.
Diane Desmarais: " Eating healthy and balanced"
Nutritionist Diane Desmarais advises candidates to increase their consumption of foods rich in B -complex , omega 3 , magnesium and potassium. Thus , it favors the fish , especially small oily fish such as sardines , herring and mackerel, which contain less mercury than large predatory fish such as tuna and salmon. She also advises nuts in general , ie , almonds, walnuts ( walnuts ) , and pecan nuts , but unlike certain habits , avoid pistachio contains 50 % saturated fat . Green leafy vegetables such as ' leafy vegetables ' with spinach, are also preferred .
The nutritionist also advises students , the consumption of whole grains such as brown rice, oats, muesli and quinoa for their B vitamins and bananas. She adds that it is important to stay hydrated by drinking water as soft drinks , juices brick and alcohol dehydrate like coffee. Dehydration prevents normal functioning of the brain.
evoking energy drinks , Diane Desmarais argues they are not recommended for health. " They are rich in glucose and excess glucose is harmful. The " buffs " they provide only last a few minutes , after which there was a fall in blood glucose ( sugar) in the blood. By cons , dietary supplements " checklist " based on magnesium , omega 3, vitamin B, for example , (without sweetener with adequate doses and well assimilated formulas) are effective provided that they take before exams.
A cure is effective after one month. "Diane Desmarais outlines the rasisonnable meal. The 12 year old has more or less the same needs (in terms of memory ) than adolescents. That's why she recommends for breakfast , oatmeal , and for dinner , complete starches (such as brown rice ) , green vegetables , protein ( fish / dry beans ) , fresh fruit and raw nuts as a snack and plenty of water during the day.
Mayaven Mutha Pillay : " Working on Stress "
For many students , being in the exam room is a source of many problems . Mayaven Mutha Pillay, an English teacher , note that there is stress, blackouts , panic, but mismanagement of time, not to mention the lack of self-confidence.
In addition, some materials require a move to another school , so a change of environment , which tends to accentuate the feeling of fright at the candidate. However , the teacher of Modern College , Flacq , insists exam preparation should be done with seriousness and discipline. So he advises mental preparation , regular review , a school attendance and work on old questionnaires.
For the teacher , the day of the event , it is important to take a balanced breakfast to avoid sore or other discomfort and dizziness . He advised spicy meal, even between events . It is recommended to take a light meal. The atmosphere at home should be healthy on the eve of exams. Avoid talking too much, as this fatigue. It also indicates that a good night's sleep can do wonders for the tests.
Speaking of stress management , Mayaven Mutha Pillay admits that many teachers do not hesitate to advise their students to spend one minute meditation before tackling the questionnaire. Confidence remains essential. Another factor not to be overlooked : avoid talking examinations during breaks. For it is to put pressure involuntarily.
The draft and planning
For many candidates , the time during exams remains a serious obstacle. The teacher ensures that the panel of examiners has already calculated this time based on the number of questions , the time spent reading and draft. " Some experts say that the draft is not important, but rather something that relates to a waste of time. The important thing is to know the difference between the draft and planning. Before attending the tests, the candidate must first master the material in question , through questionnaires reviewed in class, while timing his work. Proper allocation of time can be devoted to a final review of his work. "
Mayaven Mutha Pillay asks candidates to follow all instructions to the letter. "During the test paper 1 General Paper , many candidates fail to specify the issue or even to report the number of the chosen issue . It is a mistake not to . It is really stupid to have worked hard for a year and then get caught in a trap. "
Lifestyle during the month of examinations must be different. It is recommended to seek peace , trust , avoid petty squabbles between siblings or even parents .
Hema Conhyedoss " well prepared "
Wait until the last minute to prepare for an exam is not recommended. The psychologist Hema Conhyedoss highlights it makes sense to have a minimum of stress during a test. "Everyone feels a little stress during exams . But when it is unmanageable , we need to ask some questions. Do I set the bar too high ? Did I reach my goals ? "
Positiver is very important , insists psychologist . To do this, it is important to organize and design a program review prepared in advance to be ready the day of exams . "Those who wait until the last minute, are those who are too sure of themselves . Overconfidence can be fatal , such as having a memory lapse in front of his questionnaire. We must therefore take your time and prepare well ... "
The role of parents is crucial , says Hema Conhyedoss . This helps to reduce the pressure . "Parents should monitor and advise the child, but not impose . Recognize the strengths of the child , the value , but without the guilt . The exams are not the end of the world . He must do his best according to his ability and perspective . "
