Positive Approach Towards Exams

Confidence is key for creating success. What is success? The ability to do our work successfully. So students, It's not 100%, or 90%, or 40% marks you achieve on your exams which make you a success. It is the knowledge you gain to achieve such marks. It is how you rate success for yourself. So, do not look at your grades so much. Do not compare yourself with others. Determine a goal that is reachable according to your abilities.

Every student does not have to be brilliant in studies. But at the same time it is essential to have a minimum qualification of 10 + 2 to do anything in life. Each person has his own aptitude. So put your 100% target on those areas where you have aptitude and strength. Start studying for your exams with the confidence that you should pass. Then there is no fear of failure, which can stand in your way..

Remove your fear of failure because it creates depressive tendencies. Take the long view of your life. The exam you write today is not as big as life. Do not let a fear of failure dictate your performance in exams.

Do remember that your parents, teachers and dear ones want you to get good marks and pass. Your teacher has helped many students get good grades and pass. Have confidence in your teachers. They are always there to help you. Not to fail you. They get angry on you if you do not study well. They are not happy if you take a drastic step. If you keep this in mind you are sure to succeed.

So remember your Attitude decides your Aptitude and Altitude . This makes you to turn situations from worst to wisest. It initiates you towards success. This will surely take you from the thinking of impossible to possible.
