Exam Results

Dec 05, 2022

Exam Results

As the year comes to an end, most children are now waiting very anxiously for their reports and their results. But this waiting period can cause a lot of nerves and confusion. So, this week we will discuss how should the child/learner respond, then how should the parents respond, as well as being supportive to your colleagues.

How Should a Learner Respond?

You didn’t prepare enough for an exam, or you slacked off a little. You have got a poor rating now. Your heart will sink a little; your skin will turn pale, your mouth will dry out. You don’t really know who to blame — yourself? Maybe you’ll even shed a tear or two.

It’s normal to get a bad grade from time to time, but with what we have at stake, it can (understandably) be particularly stressful for us. It can certainly be a whole mourning process to cope with bad grades, which is important but oddly informative in the long run.

The most significant element is getting over a bad grade’s disappointment and planning your next step.

The following tips can come in handy for you when dealing with bad grades, whether it’s finding the right approach, improving your time management and productivity levels, or just planning ahead.

Give yourself time to process

People keep telling you to dismiss bad grades and try harder next time. They say that dwelling on the past or letting your mind wander about mistakes is of no use. But as a student, I feel that it can often help you gain the insight you need to face the next obstacle by allowing yourself to wallow in that sorrow and despondence. Channel your thoughts in the best way that you can. Time does miracles!

Giving yourself some time so that you can focus on what happened. When you’re frustrated, you deserve a little time for yourself to vent your frustrations, especially if you know that you worked hard to get a good grade but were unsuccessful in the process.

Calculate and evaluate

You should think about your results in that specific subject for the past few exams once you obtain your grade. Try to measure and evaluate the effect on factors such as your college enrolment, expected marks, or semester grades that the bad grade might probably have. Some tests and formative evaluations can have less weight proportionally than others. You can become more optimistic about your next try once you find this out!

Think about the minimum amount you’d like in the future to make up the grade. You will be optimistic about your potential success in the subject in this way and get the motivation and optimism to work harder and put the best foot forward.

Keep yourself calm and carry on

This is one of the most critical moves when coping with low grades. It’s time to take a deep breath and step on after you’re done worrying and measuring all in your mind. Forgive and forgive so that you don’t let one poor grade have control over you. Next time, your reaction to it will affect your results. The only way to get over the issue effectively is to step forward and not keep looking back constantly. Make sure you don’t worry too hard.

Pinpoint the vulnerabilities

After a test, you know exactly what your gaps are; it is important to distinguish and appreciate your errors.

Sit down with a teacher, instructor, fellow student, friend, or parent and ask them for advice. It will be greatly benefitting for you to spend time discussing your feelings with someone whom you trust, confiding in them how you feel about your academic performance. Also sit with your teachers and draw from their wealth of experience on this matter and guidance on how to improve.

Work on your shortcomings

After recognizing those possible vulnerabilities, spend time focusing on how to use practical techniques that will better solve the challenges in the future to fix them. Your approaches must be explicitly tailored to your needs. For example, in a timed and simulated environment, if you have run out of time during a test, practice exam-smart strategies such as writing essay questions. Make sure to practice every day so that your holes are perfect! Although you might not be compensated today, in the future, you will certainly reap the benefits.

Next time, tackle it!

After you’ve worked on the topic, make sure that the next time you take an exam, you keep your composure, and retain a calm mind. Be positive about your efforts, but try not to overestimate the difficulty of the analysis and subject matter at the same time. Collect your thoughts before attempting each question, and try not to get too impulsive when you start.

Bad grades are a shocker for everyone, regardless of our age, and they never fail to bring about disappointment, aggravation, and confusion. The hard work that we put in overcoming academic obstacles is predictive of our future success. Try not to be disheartened and never stop marching headlong through new challenges that you find.
