Keerat Malhotra of New Friends Colony closed her books and stashed them in the cupboard long before 10.00 pm on Wednesday 29th Feb in Delhi. She wanted a good night’s sleep before her first Board exam on Thursday 1st March in Punjabi Bagh, Saurabh Ghai planned to sit through the night to finish revising the course. Two-three hours of sleep was all he wanted. On the other hand, his friend Ashish Ahuja preferred to relax by listening to music. He had set the alarm clock at 5.00 am when he would get up and rush through his notes. The year-long efforts of students across the city will culminate in the CBSE exams starting Thursday. English is the first exam for Class XII students while Class X students start with their optional Board exams with Mathematics on Friday.
With 2.28 lakh students appearing from Delhi, more than eight lakh students are registered to take the Class XII Board examination this year. Of the total number of students registered, 3.3 lakh are girls. I am glad the Board exams are starting with English. It’s the most stress-free subject and I hope to do well because well begun is half done, said Keerat. The exam starts at 10.30 am on Thursday though teachers advise students to reach the centre latest by 9.30 am. The Class XII exam will be held at 547 centres across the city. 792 differently abled students have also registered to appear for the Class XII exam. After working hard for a year, it’s finally time to perform and give your best. Attempt the paper confidently and also keep healthy. I wish each student good luck, said CBSE chairperson Vineet Joshi. CBSE has a three-tier arrangement for surprise checking with its own flying squads and the flying squads from Directorate of Education, Delhi. We will also get special observers from outside. District level committees were constituted to suggest schools on arranging adequate infrastructure for setting up examination centres, an official said. Parents, too, are anxious. Sunita Dogra from Kalkaji said, I am very nervous. My daughter’s performance in these exams will determine the career she can take up in the future. Experts say it's essential for parents to take care of their childrens health at this stage. This is the time when students feel increased stress and anxiety, which is why their natural immunity drops. Parents should give their children fruits rich in vitamin C to improve immunity, CBSE counsellor Geetanjali Kumar said.

TIPS FOR STUDENTS:Have healthy breakfast rich in fibre. Avoid heavy meal in morning as it can induce sleep. Don’t eat stale food. Don’t study new topics before exam. Focus on revising scoring topics Reach exam centre by 9.30am. Factor in office rush-hour to manage travel time Avoid talking about your level of preparation. Don’t panic if your friends know more. Staying calm helps you retain what you have studied Carry bottle of water and writing board. Desks at exam centre may not have smooth top Check CBSE roll number before leaving home. Also carry school identity card.
TIPS FOR PARENTS:Wake up your child with a smile and instill confidence in him Ensure your child has a proper breakfast. Empty stomach will only affect his concentration while writing the exam. Don’t scold or panic if your child gets cranky or irritated before exam. Tell him it’s just an exam and he can perform well. Don’t force him to revise at the last minute. Don’t talk about results before start of exam. Career options can be discussed later. Both parents should accompany child to exam centre. But don’t mind if your child insists going with friends.
