My kid usually studies well within time and seems fine at home. But his performance in exams are not that great given that he is an intelligent child. Will try your solutions - could be the stress. Have planned to share it with other parents and friends in the next parent’s teacher’s interaction in my kid’s school Orchids International.

ok... we now know the "why" so what can we do to help children that are experiencing test anxiety?

i have already given my comments on this article, but i was disappointed to see that there were no other views which gives the impression that people do not bother to share their views and experiences on such articles which are of crucial importance for scientific development of their child's personality.. shiv kumar

the article is very informative and thought -provocative. it provides a good insight of what goes on in the mind of the child when he prepares for the test or interview. the article will serve a useful purpose if the school authorities could pick up a or two things from the article and revise their methodologies for testing the abilities of the children.

i wish parents whose children have had test anxiety would share their experiences. my child suffers from test anxiety and actually gets fever the day before or on the day of the exam. at first i did not want to jump to this conclusion as she is a fairly good student. when this happened three times in a row - ie. at every exam every 6 months i came to this conclusion. apart from boosting her confidence and telling her "she can do it" and ofcourse giving her a paracetamol to bring the fever down what else can be done for the long term? please advise.

i have a kid of 9th class, he should be the first person to ask about exam fever. he use to get very nervous during exams, he was lack in confidence but not any more, now he takes his exams confidently. he prepares for his exams through web-based assessment tool perfectly designed for school kids by 24x7guru, this tool provides him the feedback after each test by which he can rectify his mistakes and can do better in the exam. check 24x7guru site…….. don’t forget to have a look on “destination nasa challenge”

Name: Exam fever

i have been educated and i am an educator . so i have seen both perspectives 1st hand and am justified commenting . an exam in my opinion is no judge of your life. it dosent determine that you live or die. so don't get so harried abpout it . relax that paper is not going to snap you up in a gulp. secondly i donot agree that tennagers feel that it is so called 'uncool' to study . i know of a kid who has a great social life yet has starring grades . yet there are the paradox of kids who are homebound and are medicore. donot limit your kids social life just because he is not doing well. there are many other factors . most importantly to do well , he has to be foccused about his aims and achievements and should try to deter failure believing that it is not the end . howeever donot gloat over successes too. i agree that there is prestige associated with the iit but how many kids who are their graduates do we haer of as names . remember that they also heve a fair share of drop outs . i mayself am no graduate of a renownd uni , but i am travelling with my profession . also many parents have the attidude of talking about and comparing their kids grades and achiveements and then telling their kids ' xyz can achieve this why can't you ' remeber that your kid is no abc or xyz . he is who he is . i keep to the attidude that my kids education is my business and i donot discuss the issue with other arents as well .

Is your child failing a lot of tests? Do you think the reason could be something other than lack of preparation? Is it something he is scared of?
