Really? Exam Fear is Good For You

exam_fear

Let us all accept the fact. Everyone has faced exam fear at some point in life. You could be very nervous about your upcoming exams at the time of reading this article. This post will convey how you can overcome exam tension in a positive way.

With the increasing difficulty level of competitive exams, exam fear has become a common quality among youngsters. If you look nervous, the first advice from your friends or family would be, “hey! Stay cool”. But is staying cool that simple? Not everyone is MS Dhoni who could remain cool in the toughest of the situations. So what exactly is the solution? Accept exam fear in a positive way. So what to do next? Read on.

There are two types of fear. One is constructive while the other one will harm you. In reality, fear does not have magnitude, but your reaction to fear has.

In fact, human evolution would not have been possible without fear. If early humans didn’t fear wild animals, they would not have protected themselves, and the evolution would have ended a long time ago.

So, do not try to tamper with exam fear and do not fool yourself saying you are super cool. Instead, try to beat the fear in the proven hard way. But how? The simplest medicine (not an instant one) is work, work, and work.

Though not accurate, below is a simple illustration of how hard work will win over exam tension with time.

For example, let us say you are nervous about an exam that is upcoming in two months time. First of all, think of nervousness as your internal warning mechanism that your preparation is not sufficient. If you listen to your heart, you can even figure out the areas where you are weak. You can focus more on those weak areas first.

Conclusion
Work wholeheartedly and prepare well daily. As the day passes by you will realize the magic. Yes, gradually, your fear will wear off, and you will become super confident to face the exam. Your success begins there.

2 Sure Fire Ways to Easily Learn English Words

English word

Many youngsters feel that learning English words (for sections like synonyms/antonyms) is very tough. For sections like Aptitude and Reasoning, you have limited syllabus and study materials. But, you cannot expect all words that are appearing in English section from a single book.

The first problem with learning English words is that you have too many materials to study. You may be confused about which materials to choose.

The second problem is that you don’t have a clear guideline to proceed. Below are two important tips that will address both the problems.

Learn 2-3 Sentence Examples For Every Word

You may not be having sufficient time to prepare. You may be forced to learn words and direct meanings like in a dictionary. But words and direct meanings alone are not going to help you in exams. You will face two problems. First, you will forget the words quickly if you are not sure of the real use in sentences. Second, the pattern in most of the exams will carry sentences and blanks to fill. Hence, unless you know the real use of a word, you will not be able to score easy marks.

So the best method to learn words is this: Learn at least two to three sentence examples for every new word you learn. If you learn the usage of words in sentences, you will remember them a long time. Even if you forget, you will be able to revise/recollect easily.

Track/Note Your Materials So That You Can Revise Easily

We are all humans and not computers. Only computers remember everything. However you learn, you may forget few or many words as the time passes. Hence, revision is very important for mastering English words.

Ok, now you are prepared to revise. But do you track or note down the materials you have used so far for English? For sections like English (and Current Affairs), you will be using a variety of materials like books, websites, newspapers, or even English magazines. Whichever material you use, do not forget to note down the materials along with the page numbers. Within the materials (say for example, in a newspaper) use a sketch to mark the words and sentences you have learned. Store the materials you use for English in a separate rack or shelf so that you will not be searching for materials to revise later on.

Hope the above two tips will help you master lots of words and remember them for long. All the very best.

bankjob_2017

If you are a bank job aspirant, 2017 is going to be a tremendous year for you. If you have appeared in exams in the past years, you will already be aware of the huge number of opportunities in this sector. If you are a first timer, there is no better year than 2017 to work hard and realize your dreams.

We at BankingCareers.in track various news and official reports on a regular basis. We are also constantly in touch with experts to get their opinion on potential opportunities in this sector. Last year (2016), SBI and IBPS conducted exams for over 44,000 vacancies (in clerical, PO & Other cadres). This year also looks bright for the job seekers. There are solid reasons to believe this. We will see them below.

IBPS has released tentative calendar for various exams this year. The important ones that most youngsters attend are RRB, PO and Clerical exams. They start in September, October, and November respectively. September is only a few months away if you take into account the rigorous preparation that is required for these exams. But the bright side is now you know the tentative dates, and hence you can study with confidence to make use of the opportunity. The number of vacancies is expected to be huge based on the rising demand in the workforce in the banking sector.

Regarding SBI exams, if the trend of the last year is to be believed, one can expect those exams well in advance of RRB exam (well before september). Still, we don’t have the official notification from SBI. But unlike IBPS, (based on 2016) SBI announces just 40-50 days before the exams. Hence, to prepare for SBI, do not wait for notification but start immediately.

The greatest advantage in bank exams is that the syllabus is almost the same for almost all the important exams. This will help you prepare fast and better.

2017 is going to be filled with enormous opportunities. Work hard and prepare sincerely towards your dreams. All the very best for a great 2017!
