“Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.”
~ Sam Levenson
Infuse your life with action. Don’t just wait for things to happen to you, go ahead and make things happen. When you are driven by ambition and all you see is your objective; your anxiety and stress just wither away. Follow these guidelines to stay motivated all the way to the GATE exam.
7 Ways to De-Stress Before GATE the Exam
Here are some useful tips of coping with anxiety in a way that allows you to perform at your best during the GATE exam:
- Strategize and start preparing early: Begin by assessing your current proficiency. Based on your score, divide the syllabus according to your strengths and weaknesses. Refine your strengths to a degree that you are sure to perform well in those areas. On the other hand, consider professional coaching to improve your score in the areas that need some work. Start preparations early to reduce last moment anxiety.
- Time management: Schedule your time well so that you have ample time in hand not only for the preparation, but also for ample practice and relaxation before the actual assessment.
- Physical and mental fitness: Take out time, like a 30 minute workout session in the form of dance, yoga or outdoor sports, and supplement this practice with a healthy and balanced diet. Make sure you take time out each day to do something you enjoy.
- Practice: The GATE exam is all about comprehending and applying the concepts of your subject of choice. So, the more you practice, the better you will be at applying concepts.
- Appear for mock sessions: Keep assessing your performance for a fair idea of where your efforts are leading you and when you need to re-strategize to achieve your objective.
- Relaxation techniques: If exam fear is haunting you a few weeks before you GATE exam, follow these relaxation techniques:
- Practice breathing exercises and meditation.
- Listen to positive and motivational music.
- Pen down all your worries and also your dreams and expectations.
- Practice thought switching: Be conscious of whatever runs through your mind, so that you can identify negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones.
- Visualize success: Your mental picture of yourself will become your life! Your thoughts will become things! This was stated by a very powerful book, The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne. Imagine yourself to be an achiever and visualize your desired score in your GATE exam and this positive thought will channelize your action to turn your dreams into reality.
As Walt Disney once said, “If you can dream it, you can achieve it!” So, learn to believe in yourself and stay focused. Refrain from negative people and situations.
