exam delays

When your exam delays, how do you feel?

Most of us become happy as we get a few more days to study and basically more chilling days for those who don’t study. But why exam gets delayed?

Delay in exams is caused by many major reasons such as a change in syllabus due to new education policies, any national or state emergency, or other reasons that include the leak of question papers before the exams, students’ protests, etc.

But there are some advantages and disadvantages when your exam gets delayed.

Advantages of exams delays.

  • Students get more time for preparation.
  • If this is your last year of school or college you get more time to spend with your friends and teachers.
  • If you are aspirants of any competitive exam and taking coaching classes they won’t take fees if the exam delays for 1-2 months.

Disadvantages of exam delays.

  • School and college students may face difficulties if they are in the last year as they will get a late start for their higher education.
  • The pressure of giving exams increases among students.
  • Students who came from remote areas may face some difficulties if exam delays or date extends.

Now you may be aware of some of the advantages and disadvantages let’s see what you can do during this time.

Watch over the official notifications

Nowadays, every educational institute has its own official website or any social media page. Only follow or keep your eye on those pages.

Because doing so will always make you update about the timetables, any major or minor changes about the exams if it delays.

Do not trust what’s app groups if it is not official or anybody from the institute is not joined in it. Especially be careful about those groups with only boys as they can prank anyone but circulating the fake documents.

If the exam is a board or all India, there are fewer chances for you to get wrong news as people spread fake news mostly in the small exam because they held to be on a small level.

Keep in touch with the teachers

If you have exam delays, always keep in touch with the teachers as most of them go to college or school every day.

And if you take tuitions from them, that’s very nice to get daily updates about the school. This is a general point, but most students hesitate to talk to teachers outside school hours.

Beware of the fake news

As I told you in the first point, beware of fake news that most mischievous people spread in most social media groups. They would try to create havoc by posting fake documents.

Suppose you get any of the documents like that try reaching out to your friends or teacher to know the real news. Also, check on the internet. You will find results if the exams are held statewide or nationwide.

Prepare for the surprise date

When exam delays for an indefinite period, no one knows when any board or university schedules or makes a timetable.

Be prepared for a surprise coming date as board or university can take exams on any date.

But as exams get delayed, most students leave their studies and revision, but if you do so, you will be only in trouble.

Get your admit card

I have seen many friends of mine as they forgot to take admit cards or don’t download them. This laziness can get you in trouble.

In some of the exams, the center demands the original admit card you can only get from your school or college. So as soon as you get notifications, try to get your to admit card first.

In most exams, especially competitive ones, admit cards are given 1-2 weeks before the examination.

Use time for revision

Do you know if you revise just three-time of any of the subjects you can easily secure good marks in the exams?

Well, most people don’t know what revision is. They look at the book one day of the exams—no wonder why they get average marks.

During the time in which your exam is delayed, use just it to revise between this period. Don’t get a new book or learn anything new.

Give mock tests

A mock test is a great option to test yourself, and your preparation for the exams gives as many mock tests as you can give offline or online but don’t get negative thoughts if you get fewer marks in your mock test.

Most students don’t perform the mock test, as doing this can make you aware of your weak areas where you need to put more effort.
