Many students fail to perform well in an exam not because they lack ability, but because of the pressure from many aspects. In my opinion, pressure is part of life. It’s quite natural for us to feel stressed occasionally, at an exam, or when speaking to a stranger. So it’s of great importance to have a right attitude towards pressure. What we need to do is to relax ourselves and face the challenge positively and initiatively.
As Senior 3 students, we have to deal with some grown-up problems and make decisions by ourselves. Family can be one of the biggest causes of stress, such as problems with arguing with parents or brothers or sisters. We also have lots of stress from school, either from our classmates or teachers. However, the greatest pressure comes from study, which worries most of us as the National College Examination is approaching. We also feel stressed about choosing our education after high school or not affording to go to university.
In order to reduce pressure, first, a balanced diet and enough sleep are necessary; secondly, I would schedule my study properly so that I can have time to do sports or listen to music; also, friendship, support from my parents and encouragement from my teachers can help me a lot. I would try every means to relax myself and work with high efficiency to achieve my goal.
