How do I deal with the pressure and stress of JEE preparation?

Dealing with the pressure and stress of JEE preparation can be challenging, but it is important to maintain a positive attitude and focus on your goals. Some strategies that can help you manage stress include regularly exercising and maintaining a healthy diet, engaging in activities that you enjoy, and seeking support from your friends and family. It is also important to take regular breaks from your studies and avoid over-studying, as this can lead to burnout and negative impacts on your mental health. Additionally, seeking guidance from a counselor or therapist can be helpful in addressing any underlying stress or anxiety related to your JEE preparation.

Believe it or not, pressure and stress handling is a part of learning process and a crucial, common for all aspect, when preparing for JEE Mains.

You need to have faith in your self study and material you studied. Furthermore, have confident in yourself and your hard word for this exam. I know it is easier said than done. I will share a few tips with you that you can try to bust your examination stress and work better in your self study time.

  1. Take regular breaks and schedule in fun things to look forward to

Even the most intense exam timetables will allow a little time for a study break. This can include 20-minute breaks during your revision day, and longer activities that you can look forward to. Go out for dinner with friends, go to the cinema, attend a gig, anything that you like doing in your spare time that will take your mind off exams. Spending a little time away from the books will leave you feeling more refreshed and relaxed the next time you revise.

  1. Don’t (always) listen to others

As the old saying goes: “comparison is the thief of joy”. While it is helpful to discuss topics with fellow students and often to revise together, try not to compare other peoples’ revision to your own.

  1. Speak to someone

If the stress gets to a point where it is overwhelming, and is affecting your day-to-day life, try and speak to someone about it. Open up to a family member or a friend about the pressure you feel.

  1. Eat, sleep and exercise well

Pulling all-nighters, surviving on a poor diet, and getting minimal amounts of movement into your day can increase symptoms of anxiety. For your body’s best performance, make sure you’re getting 8/9 hours of sleep, enough slow-release carbs, less caffeine and more water, and at least half an hour of exercise per day.

  1. Set realistic goals

Setting realistic goals, whether you have several weeks, days or hours before your exam, helps you to put everything into perspective. Acceptance of your situation and working within the realms of what you have maximises your productivity without the risk of burning yourself out.
