We All Pray to
Mata Mahasaraswati Devi


Summary of the Gayatri Mantra

  (the mother of the vedas),
the foremost mantra in hinduism
 and We hindu beliefs, inspires wisdom.

Its meaning is that
"May the Almighty God illuminate
 our intellect to lead us along the righteous path".
 The mantra is also a prayer to the
"giver of light and life" - the sun (savitur).

Oh God! Thou art the Giver of Life,
Remover of pain and sorrow,
The Bestower of happiness,
Oh! Creator of the Universe,
May we receive thy supreme sin-destroying light,
May Thou guide our intellect in the right direction.

Dear Learner Friends,

People say,

"They are essential evils".

They are necessary since till now

no other alternative method has been adopted

universally and Evils because most people shiver by it's name.


EXAMS and many hearts skip a beat,

students get anxious and spend sleepless nights.

Not only students many adults suffer from exam phobia.

Join me @ forangelsonly

They may be excellent at their work


when asked to prove their prowess through an examination,

often they falter showing their vulnerability

towards exams and exam related stress.



has become an inseparable part

of our lives and it is the fear of this competition

that leaves us feeling unhappy, paranoid and worried.

The fear of being put to test can

be quite stressful for many people.

This affects them adversely and they

fail to perform to the best of their ability.

 Join me @ forangelsonly


some positive steps may help

the examinees to reduce their stress

and assist them in achieving their target.

Below mentioned are some simple yet

effective steps to combat the so called

"Exam Fever".

Many a time students are advised to prepare

a Time Table and follow it regularly.


very few follow this advice and as a result,

a fortnight before the exams they

find themselves in deep water.

In such a situation,

it will be helpful if the student identifies

which subjects/papers/topics are hard

to deal with but are essential from the exam point of view.

Every night just before going to sleep,

you should go through those difficult topics

and after waking up the next morning,

once again you should revise the same topics.

Join me @ forangelsonly

This should be done everyday,

till the exams commence.

If this practice is followed for at least 2 weeks,

there will be a remarkable progress in you

and you'll gain more confidence.



who do not regularly indulge in physical exercises

or meditation are advised to bring about

a slight change in their daily routine

at least 1 month prior to their exams.

Try to wake up as early as possible based

on your sleeping habits.

Then for half an hour sit quietly with

your legs folded and close your eyes.

Join me @ forangelsonly

Forget everything

and concentrate on your papers/subjects

you'll be appearing for in the forthcoming exams.

Try to evaluate your position,

how much portion of your studies you have

completed and how much is yet to be finished.

Then decide

which topics you want to complete on that day.

For half an hour,

you should not think of anything but studies.

This will serve a dual purpose.

First of all,

for half an hour you focus remains on your exams only,

serving the purpose of meditation.

Since meditation is nothing but

keeping your focus on one particular thing

and forgetting the rest.

Join me @ forangelsonly

Many people find it hard

to meditate since their mind is always thinking

about multiple things at a time.

They find it hard to concentrate

on any one thing even for half an hour.


since you are thinking of your studies only,

mentally you are devising a target

which you intend to achieve on that day.

This helps to plan your studies daily.

Mock Tests

are indeed helpful,

since Practice makes man Perfect.

Even if you are not taking any mock tests,

you should try to simulate one.

Spare some time in-between your studies

and try to imagine the day of your exam.

Think of all the necessary things

you need to carry with yourself

to the examination centre say for example,

admit card, pen, pencils, erasers,

geometrical instruments (if any) etc.

Then imagine yourself to be at the examination hall.

Join me @ forangelsonly

You should be very careful

while writing your Roll No./Registration No.

on you answer sheets.

Try to imagine all these things,

and also the question paper pattern.

If you are aware of the pattern,

then try to imagine

how you would be attempting the questions,

which section would you start off with etc.

Join me @ forangelsonly

Apart from these,

also think of the situation

where you find a drastic change in the question pattern,


a sharp increase in the

difficulty level of the paper.

You must also imagine these types

of adverse situations and what you should do

if such a situation occurs.

Join me @ forangelsonly

Simulating these virtual situations in your mind

makes you more tenacious and

less vulnerable to harsh situations.

Also you know

how to act if such a situation befalls.



there is no short cut to success.


for those late birds,

the above practices would surely help them a lot,

if followed truly for at least a month prior to the exams.

If followed regularly,

there is no doubt that

you'll reap richer benefits.
