EXAMS EXAMS EXAMS!!
What else is there left to hear? All the students are persistent about the exams. Throughout the session, they have not taken the studies seriously. When the days are nearby, they are constant beings. Somewhere in the corner of the heart, they are worried but are being bone-loafer.
Students need to understand that the exams are proof of their learning. A student without education is like a bird without wings. Without wings, a bird cannot fly, and without exams, we cannot fly towards the best. Due to the pandemic, it is not only us, but the students, perhaps the teachers have also suffered too. Digital learning and teaching isn’t easy. However, it showed the best it could.
There was a point where Shafqat Mehmood Saab stated his feelings on the students’ responses towards studies. He wants students to prosper and enjoy the time of learning and achieving the best in life.
Moreover, exams are truly stressful, but they improve learning. They are not only for character building but also helps the brain to exercise. Using the brain also helps to memorize and retrieve what is studied.
Motivational regulation is when the motivation takes place, is in process, and is increased. So there should be an involvement of motivational supervision in the students’ lives. Motivation strengths only when students believe in themselves, know that there is something inside them bigger than any hurdle. This practice brings a positive effect on students where they will feel the learning for exams mandatory.
