CBSE exam results are out now. A lot of us could be brooding over how the final revision should have been more conscience or how you should have started studying early but whatever the thing be, it is over! The exams are a matter of the past now.
Dr Kedar tilwe Consultant Psychiatrist and Sexologist, Department of Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences, Hiranandani Hospital, Vashi shares 3 tips for students to combat the exam result stress as well tips to get over your result:
Anxiety is real
Dr Tilwe enumerates that anxiety issues during exams and results are very common. Nevertheless, anxiety reduces upon sharing its burden. So, students must take a family member or a close friend, along with you for collecting your results. This ensures that your emotion is in control.

It is just another result, receive it as one!
'Remember that exams are only a way of arranging you in a hierarchy for admissions. Exams are not the final word in your career, rather they are just the beginning. Therefore, don't get obsessed with the numbers.' Sure, an 88% looks far more impressive than a 66% but that is just for the moment and trust us, in the long run- all that matters is YOU!
Learn to internalise disappointments bravely
Everyone has their share of ups and downs. So, if you feel upset; reach out and talk to your family, friends or counsellors, they are your support system and will be happy to help you navigate through the troubled times. Also, if you see a friend who needs help; reach out to him/her. Remember that life will not always turn out to be the way you want it to be, hence take life as it comes. Put all your efforts in everything you do but don't expect everything to be your way!
