22 February 2015 :: On All India Radio ( AIR ), Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he doesn’t have the right to tell students as how they should attempt their exams and the mode of studies. He was speaking on Mann Ki Baat monthly programme on All India Radio ( AIR ). Modi recalled that he himself was an average student and didn’t have good handwriting. Keeping the talks light, Modi said that people today exhaust their creative edge in excessive competitiveness. There should be competition but not that if you lose or stay back in the competition, it is the end of your world, but it is not.
Talking about how to do well in exams, PM Narendra Modi cites the example of a cricket player. Modi said, “Don’t think about your previous papers you have given. Does a cricketer thinks that he gout out on nought in his previous innings? Does he thinks that he will score a century and then only be out? NO! Instead he plays every ball without any pre-determined thought. The same way students should give their exams, without thinking about in present and past.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed on the fact that students become nervous during their exam time due to extra ordinary reasons. Modi urged young students to keep faith in themselves. Modi said that the preparation you (students) have done for your exams will make you pass with flying colours. The PM also added that the students should have full confidence in their abilities. Quoting Mr Kamat ( a parent from Tamil Nadu), PM Modi said that students should ‘Be a warrior not a worrier’. Modi also added, “Shouldn’t the students celebrate the exam’s time period as ‘Exam Festival’? Modi talks about one of his Gujarati poem which is titled, ‘Success will make you jealousy-prone; whereas if you fail, you will looked down upon’.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) examinations will begin 2nd of March 2015.
