Most of the time fear of taking exams unnerves students. Adding to that, parents make the students’ life more difficult by thrusting on them a lot of their unfulfilled dreams. Taking this into consideration, the Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) has begun its annual pre-exam counselling from February 1. Trained counsellors will provide the counsel to the students and the parents. They can also obtain pre-recorded information on tackling board exams, time and stress management.
Besides that, principals and trained counsellors from CBSE affiliated schools also offer live tele-counselling services to the students and parents. CBSE has also uploaded an audio-visual presentation “Knowing Children Better” on its website. They can go to the CBSE official website, www.cbse.nic.in and click on ‘Counselling’ to find these resources. The experts from CBSE will also counsel students and parents through various media platforms.
To get counselling, the students or parents can email to email@example.com. Prime Minister Narendra Modi too has also given a lot of emphasis on this matter. Recently, the Prime Minister had interacted a session called “Pariksha Pe Charcha” with students, parents and teachers, where 2,500 students, teachers and parents were participants. The programme was also being live telecast in schools across the country. PM Modi answered queries on various matters including exam-related stress, unattentiveness and vedio-game addition of students.
PM Modi’s interactive session was held at Talkatora Stadium in New Delhi on January 29, 2019. A mother of a student asked PM Modi how she will help her son to stay away from video games, which was hapering his studeies. The Minister advised her to understand her child and help him to be adoptive to technology.
