Final Exam Week - Students Aim for Success

We have reached the critical final exam period, and as a result, students will undergo intense studying and revising. During these final weeks, families of students will stand with their children to help them successfully overcome exams and obtain desired results.

Prayers and Anticipation

Thousands of families are waiting to hear good news in regards to their child's exam results. Every family tries to provide their children with an optimal environment. Much stress usually accompanies exams, and this brings out about the need to search for proven methods that create the conditions of academic excellence. Because the testing period is conducted over a short time, many of the students double their efforts during these weeks when studying.  Numerous characteristics accompany the final exam period – positive and negative – that we should be cognizant of. Educators and psychologists warn of resorting to stimulants during this period because they may result in a sharp drop in the ability to concentrate and a sharp increase in sleep disorders.

The Positive Role of the Family

The preparations of families for the season of final exams are of utmost importance to students and their parents. Educators confirm that it is necessary to manage time efficiently, organize their study time and take a break, as well as sleeping and eating well. The family should help to bear the burden by assisting in the management of time and creating the appropriate atmosphere for the examinee to study and revise thoroughly without being subjected to psychological pressures and the feeling of fear or anxiety.

Many students have a problem in retaining what they have studied as soon as they enter the exam room or start reading the questions. Be that as it may, they are distracted by mundane social activities, and they encounter negative psychological symptoms before the exams such as boredom and motivational factors – a lack thereof –  in addition to suffering anxiety and drowsiness. Therefore, the student has to escape from studying to watch TV programs, talk on the phone, or overeating because he/she feels that all information, inside of his/her mind, will not be retained. for moor
