Self-introspection the way to success

In the Indian society, the high expectations that are attached to the students about the examinations, they become the cause of their mental pressure in the course of time.  As a result, they are often under stress and are unable to produce the expected results.  Undoubtedly, these examinations have special significance for children, but they cannot be the ultimate goal of life.  The Prime Minister’s address to the students before the recent examinations is a pleasant initiative.  He has boosted the morale of the students by participating in such programs in the past as well.  But this time the educational scenario of the country is very challenging.  Many academic sessions have been affected by the Corona crisis.  Anomalies of online education have come to the fore.  Students are in the examination arena with half-completed studies.  Obviously students will go through mental pressure.  However, CBSE has divided the examinations into two parts due to disruption in teaching work.  Along with this, the syllabus has also been cut to a limit.  Despite this, the need of the hour is to boost the morale of the students so that they can appear in the examinations in a better way without any stress-pressure.  Undoubtedly, it is the responsibility of the teachers and parents to give psychological support to the students so that they can take the examinations without any stress.  By going to the examination hall with ease, students will be able to take the examination in a better way.  In fact, under fear and pressure, some students, despite being educated, start forgetting in the examination hall out of desperation.
Ironically, in our society, getting high percentage in examinations has been made a matter of prestige.  Without knowing that every child’s receptivity, ability and analytical abilities are different.  Every child is unique in itself.  Nature develops it for a specific purpose.  This difference also occurs at the biological and psychological level.  Therefore, not every child can be judged by the same standard of marks.  There are many examination taking institutions in the country at the central and state level and there is a huge difference in their educational standards.  There is a difference in the exam pattern and marks standards.  In such a situation, driving everyone to a standard can never be called natural justice.  It is necessary that the examinations evaluate the children on a comprehensive level.  Many a times it happens that students who score third class marks in examinations achieve peak success in various fields.  Of course, there should be exams, marks should be scored, but marks should not be taken as the ultimate goal of life.  As has been attempted in the New Education Policy, priority should be given to skill development in children.  The education system should make children a sensitive and responsible citizen, not sow the seeds of frustration and depression in them, whose fatal consequences we can see as incidents of ending lives when the results of board examinations come.  We have to make children mentally strong.
