Anxiety, self doubt, panic and fear about the future are just some of the feelings that the students may go through in the next few days as they await for their board results.
Feeling anxious before the result of any performance is quite normal. It is probably related to their own expectations and those of people close to them. Just because they feel anxious doesn’t necessarily mean that they did poorly. In fact, even people who passed their exams with flying colours were equally anxious as they waited for their results.
Apart from the obvious fear of receiving results that are not what they or their parents expected, a lot of other factors are at play during this time e.g. fear of failure, result similar to your friends, to get admission in a particular course or institution.
However it is important to cope with this result related anxiety and manage their expectations accordingly. Even if they know that the exams didn’t go well, don’t forget that they have done all the hard work. Even if they don’t get the grades they want, there are other options.
It is important to help the student to realise his own expectations realistically. Dealing with their own or others unrealistic expectations can be very difficult to cope with. If the stress is the result of the unrealistic expectations of others, one needs to address this issue. Sit together and talk about it. Once this expectation is discussed and managed properly, it can be of huge relief. There are more than 800 career options available today. There is no reason to tread the conventional road. Grades are not a measure of self-worth.
