Dear Satvara Students!
We know that you are all in the
verge of attending your first
Today we are going to talk about
an important problem, which you
all would have been facing in
almost all of your earlier attended
examinations and tests.
This problem is mostly not looked
upon in the right way and not
thought about in depth.
What are we talking about? Can
you all guess!
If you are not successful in your
guess, let me tell you - its all about
What do you all think would be the
reason for this problem?
Will any of the following be the
reason for 'examination fear'?
- Improper preparation for the
- No proper planning done before
- Not understood the concepts and
- Not much of hard work and effort
put in to thoroughly understand the
Though all the above reasons may
seem to be one of the reasons for
this fear, it is not the root cause of
the problem. Though you are very
thorough and well versed with that
day's examination or test, the fear
in your mind might lead to
performing low in the examination.
We at www.satvara.org, in

though you were very thorough
Having known the root cause of the
problem, let us tell you how to
overcome this problem which
would be very useful for you and
you would be able to excel in your
future examinations and tests.
The solution is,
"For any examination, prepare
the portion for the examination
very deeply in the manner in
which it has to be learnt and
make it very thorough in all
respects. After doing this, never
ever think about the type of
questions that would come up
in the examination. Let this not
disturb you in anyway. Bluntly
refuse the very thought. Keep
your mind blank like a spotless
paper. You should think about
the question paper only when
you receive it in your hand on
your examination day. Then you
see the difference. You would be
able to reproduce exactly what
you have learnt without leaving
