By Noman Hussain Malik

Attempt SIX questions in all. Select Two question from section A, and three questions from section B. Question No.1 is compulsory.

This is the emblematic set of instructions which you have seen at the top of most of the question paper. You are also given some additional information like total marks, total time allowed, be precise, do your work neat and clean, draw a diagram where necessary and other such instructions. As you get the paper in the examination hall you must go through these typical instructions. This article is based on questions like: What is Examination Fever? Who suffers from it?, What are its symptoms? How to study methodically? How to get rid of it? and much more….

What is examination fever?

The fear of examination has given birth to the phrase “Examination fever”. This “fever” and “examination” both are closely related because near the examination a student has an attack of this type of fever. The medical science has yet to discover its authentic germs but most educationists say “It’s a kind of allergy that attacks during or few days before the exams”.

Who suffers from it?

The victims of this fever are students. This allergy affects anyone without age limit. As examination fever is a seasonal disease and this season comes thrice a year, just before the examination so the students get anxious and restless. The intellectuals say this allergy can attack anyone, at anytime even, the scholars do not remain unaffected.


After a prolonged research the educationists and intellectuals have found some of the symptoms of this special type of fever. They agree that whenever examinations come closer the students start getting anxious and spend sleepless nights worrying about the upcoming exams. The students become weak and pale, gets easily irritated, complain of loss of memory, headache, nerves overwrought, tired eyes and the face full of worry and tension.

How to get rid of it?

In medical science no medicine has yet been discovered for the examination fever victims. The only remedy for these victims is that they just relax and need not worry.... because it is wise to remember that exams are not here as punishment; they are a good way of testing to see how much you have learnt. An examination tests a student’s knowledge and the understanding of a particular subject. The fear of examination makes students work hard because they go through the whole course as they don’t know what would be asked.

As students are anxious and restless so they sometimes think of using unfair means like guess paper injections, cheating capsules, use of programmable calculators, friendly invigilator, and other such activities. But remember all these activities have their side effects so always avoid them.

To overcome examination fever just follows the following tips:

* Always be positive because examinations are a part of life and they should not taken as punishment so always accept examination warm heartedly.

• Don’t get over anxious. Always consider the worst case that can happen and then think positive.

• Stay calm and don’t worry always think God is with you.

• Do not take junk food during or before examinations.

• Gain confidence in subjects you know best by completing the revision and writing notes.

• Try to make brief points to refer just before the exams.

• Before starting the paper set an appropriate time for each question. It will help you while you are attempting questions.

• Before examinations always revise question which you have learnt by writing them on paper according to the specified time frame.

• Take proper sleep before and during examination otherwise you will not feel fresh and you will not be able to perform according to your expectations.

• Eat well during and before examinations.
