7. Process:
 
Step 1:
Please read the fact sheet carefully, and go through this session well in advance beforeyou carry it out with the students.Greet the students and tell them that they would today be discussing about their approachon receiving the examination paper in the examination hall. Start the discussion by askingthem questions like;1.
 
What are your feelings just before and after receiving the question paper in theexamination?2.
 
How much time do you take in reading and selecting the questions to beattempted by you in the examination?3.
 
Do you allocate the time for each question?4.
 
What are your criteria for allocating the time?
Expected Responses
 
Initially we feel fear, anxiety, stress, tension etc.
 
Whether the question paper is easy or difficult
 
Take 5-10 minutes to read the entire paper
 
Sometimes yes, we allocate time but sometimes no
 
I start writing as soon as I get the paper
 
How many of the questions are well learnt and prepared
 
How many choices are there
 
Whether I will be able to finish the question paper well in time.
 
How many marks will I be able to secure?
Note for Teachers:
Note down the responses on the board. Lead a focused discussion by giving thefollowing tips to the students.
 
Read the instructions and question paper carefully. If there are any doubt getit clarified with the invigilator or teacher. (Link up with the fact that CBSEnow allocates extra time for reading the question paper!)
 
Allot appropriate time for each question on the basis of marks allocatedtothat question. This will prevent you from spending too much time fortheinitial questions ending up with very little time for the latter ones.
 
If you feel the question paper is difficult for you do not get nervous orconfused. Read the question paper twice or thrice. Try to find out a little tostart with. Slowly you will find that there are questions whose answers areknown to you.
 
Other criteria for selecting the question – refer to the“Fact sheet”
