UAP organized a Workshop on ‘Manage Your Exam Stress and Achieve More’
The Social Counseling Centre of University of Asia Pacific (UAP) organized a workshop on ‘Manage Your Exam Stress and Achieve More’ on 15th November, 2018 at the DBA seminar room of UAP.
Air Cdre (Retd) Ishfaq Ilahi Choudhury, Director, DSW inaugurated the workshop with his welcome speech. Then the workshop was facilitated by the Socio Counselor of UAP Mr. Md. Rakibul Hasan. The workshop was designed with several group works, which helped the students to recognize the nature and severity of their stresses. Moreover, discussions were made on the usefulness of stress and how much of it is required to obtain the optimal performance in the exam. Following the discussion, students were provided with tools like ‘time management kit’ and ‘smart goal kit’ which helped them to manage those stressors and take better preparation before exam. Other than this, the students were taught how to keep themselves calm during excessive stress with the help of diaphragmatic breathing and mindfulness exercises, which will help them to utilize their existing resources and do better in the exam.
The workshop was wrapped up by taking written feedback from the students on which they expressed their opinion about the effectiveness of the workshop.
