Dr.R.Rajan advised the students “ First of all, do the reading, take careful notes, participate in discussion sections and organize small study groups with classmates for mutual knowledge connectivity and especially focus on Planning, preparation, focused study, and writing practice on a very important aspect of preparing for examinations. First of all examinations are the most wonderful things in any human’s life. They are litmus test of our abilities, strength, and self-management.
The first and foremost thing about exams is never be scared of them. Each examination is succeeded by preparatory time, which must be utilized optimally. If you do it, you will love to take exam. Second thing about exams is give your hundred percent near the exams to studies. Revise as much as you can with proper breaks. First and foremost thing is don’t panic. Whatever time is left, make best use of it. Do study the subjects, topics, and concepts that you like.
Do take frequent short breaks; say 20 minutes after a spell of one hour study. Just be strong and prepare wisely and there are no short cuts for success. At the beginning of the exam, divide the time you have by the number of marks on the test to figure out how much time you should spend for each mark and each question and leave time for review and start by answering the easiest question, progressing to the most difficult at the end and prepare for the examination with well planning as guided by the subject teachers of the School”.
The Educationist inspired the students to have self-confidence and quoted Maha Kavi Bharathiyar song, “Manathil uruthi vendum, Vakkinile inimai vendum… Dr.R.Rajan reinstated Bharthiyar’s version “Firmness in mind we should have, Sweetness in words we should have, Purity in thought we should have, Our hands should be able to touch, What it wishes to touch, And our dreams should come true”.
