Examinations and assessments are an integral part of the learning process in a student’s life. While the stress and ensuing fear of the exam is inevitable, one should not undermine its damaging effects on learners.
Anxiety often affects students deeply, making them counter productive and needless to say, it is detrimental to their mental well-being. To address this issue, Madhusthali Vidyapeeth organised a session on the following topic "Handling Exam Stress for enhanced performance."
on 27th January 2024 at the College Auditorium for the Class 10 students.
The session was led by our respected Psychologist Shri.Amitabh Mohan (Founder & Managing Director- HLS, Kolkata) along with our respected Education Officer, Dr.Janardhan Ghosh and Principal MV, Mr.Bitan Biswas.
The objective was to enable them with strategies in assessment preparation which will not only help them in the upcoming Board Examination but also in other academic examinations in their lives ahead.
