I tell all my students they are my warriors and although I know I have prepared them well for battle, I would pray for all of them on the day of the exam. This is the ritual I do without fail over the last decade.
Yesterday was the O-level English paper (I heard Paper 2 was especially difficult) & I share some candid moments… Despite how confident anyone is, it is understandable anxiety is palpable when the moment comes that things can go south. So ensuring students to stay calm is crucial. One even stayed connected with me right up to the moment she entered the exam hall 🙂
