On a daily basis, a 10th grader is bombarded with the question of ‘Boards’, or ‘Board exams’. Whether a family member is appearing for the examination or not, everyone happens to be fairly interested in it. Students tend to get stressed or anxious about these national-level examinations. But what they don’t understand is that the Boards are a challenge, not a problem.
A menace or a catastrophe is often termed as a ‘problem.’ But why don’t we term the Boards as a problem? This is because it simply isn’t one! The Boards are a challenge. Problems have solutions, but challenges, instead of a solution, have a point to prove, or are something to overcome. The Boards do not have a permanent solution, neither do they need sweating students to dwell on stress, or fall sleep clutching a textbooks. They only need a bit of dedication, and a tinge of hard work, that’s all.
But there is this one thing that crushes the students. Pressure. Pressure from all directions. Parents, teachers, or even relatives. It smashes the dreams and hopes of innocent students.
But, at the end of the day, remember this, 10th graders! Boards require the 3 Ds: Dedication, Determination, and Deep insight into your NCERT textbooks!
