How to support students through examination time?

The workshop for Y11-13 parents which offers the support strategy for our children in the upcoming examinations was organised successfully on April 3. This article covers some crucial points mentioned in the workshop, thus helping our parents provide their children with support in the right way and at the right time.

First of all, we should understand about how hard IGCSE and A-Level are. These examinations recognised by 26,000 universities worldwide are considered as ‘challenging’ and ‘hard’ even to foreign students whose English as their mother tongue. Therefore, every effort of your children should be well treasured and encouraged. 

What aspects should we care about?   

  • Mood swing: due to pressure and stress, the mood can easily vary between happy and sad, optimistic and pessimistic, positive and negative, etc.
  • Sleep patterns and the quality of sleep
  • Study skills

In this period, what our students need most is the helpful parenting. What can we do?  

  • Be understanding and supportive
  • Reduce their family and home commitments
  • Help them with their organisation (create or agree schedule together)
  • Environment (place to study, remove distractions)
  • Agree on rules for technology and enforce them gently.
  • Help them to eat

How can we help with study schedule?

  • Choose the harder task
  • Focus your effort
  • Do the hard or boring stuff early
  • Maximise efforts- really try to conquer the topics you struggle with.
  • Repeat, repeat, repeat
  • Manage your time
  • It’s the doing that matters
  • It’s quality that counts

What should we avoid?

  • Bravado approach (trying to do everything for your child)
  • Family commitments over study time.
  • “I’m too busy”
  • “I know nothing about the subject”
  •  “When I was your age I …..”

What are good things for students to eat and drink?

  • Carbs (whole grain cereals, pasta)
  • Walnuts, almonds
  • Raw vegetables and fruits
  • Salmon, tuna
  • Black tea
  • Reduce simple sugars (soda). Serotonin is a calming brain chemical. Simple sugars can spike the level of serotonin but only short term.  

What is the principle of Three Eights?

  • Eight hours sleep
  • Eight hours School work
  • Eight hours free time  

Finally, the most powerful words a parent can say to our students in this period are: “I’m so proud of you.”
