Examinations come with an unusual sense of importance as the fate of most candidates is in one way or another tied to them.  They determine one’s future. Every candidate strives to pass as failure is seen as the end of one’s future.

The exams come with challenges, including exam fever,  sitting exams on empty stomachs or sitting exams at unfamiliar centres. However regardless of the challenges associated with the examination time, candidates should avoid panic and concentrate for the few days.  This week, Education Times delves into some of the challenges, candidates face during the examinations period. These challenges may seem insignificant to some but to the candidate they could be what determines their performance at the end of the day. Unfortunately logistical challenges mean that some of these challenges cannot be avoided. But these challenges should not deter your spirit as a candidate to make it at all costs.

In the end, some students will have to bear with the inconvenience of having to sit their exams from a different school. Others may be walking long distances to reach the centres, you might not have the best environment but this should not let you lose focus.  Remember you spend several years preparing for these national exams. Challenges during the few days of national exams should not render your  efforts and years of preparations go to waste.

As the concerned authorities work towards ensuring that similar challenges don’t occur in future, focus of candidates should be on finishing the exams. Good luck.
