It’s completely normal to feel a bit worried, pressurized and stressed about exams. You might feel worried about the changes, marks, and consequences of the results but it’s important to always remember that exams aren’t everything. Yes, they are an important way of gauging your knowledge, but you can still be successful no matter the results. What you can do to stay mindful on exam day is learn how to control your emotions so that you can stay focused and be successful.  

One of the most effective ways you can release stress is by practicing meditation. Studies have shown that meditating before an exam can improve your reading comprehension, memory recall, concentration, and help with feelings of stress and anxiety. It is found that those who meditate face less mind-wandering thoughts and can focus for a longer period of time. Below are five guided meditations for exam success by TRM Masters to help you calm the mind and body before exam day.  

5 Meditations To Stay Mindful On Exam Day

1. Preparing Yourself From Exam By Vidisha Kaushal   

Finding it difficult to juggle between studies and hobbies? Are exams and assignment deadlines overwhelming you? Meditate for a few minutes every day. But before you begin, let your friends, family, or roommates know that you are not to be disturbed during this time. Keep all possible forms of disturbance away. This includes your phone, pets, and even your course books. Create a physical distance between them and you. Make sure that you’re in a silent place with no external disturbances. Sit in a comfortable position. Relax your mind and concentrate all your energy to focus on the task you’re doing right now.  

2. Concentration For Calm & Focus By Tyagi Shurjo  

Make sure that you’re sitting in a comfortable position. Close your eyes. Keep them soft with the eyelids resting gently. Straighten your spine and check the position of your shoulders. Don’t bend your neck, make sure that your chin is slightly upturned as you channelise your energy to the point between your eyes. Take three gentle breaths to calm your mind and align yourself with the rhythm of your breathing pattern. Relax your mind and concentrate on your energy to focus on the task that you want to complete. Breathe in, breathe out and let go of all the tension.

4. Motivate Yourself By Ira Trivedi  


In addition to multiple other benefits, meditating regularly helps you stay motivated and focused. Regular meditation self-motivates you by elevating your focus to help you take action to reach exam success. Additionally, it calms your mind and relaxes your body. It is also a great way to change your thought patterns and focus on the positives.

5. Energise Yourself By Vidisha Kaushal  

Take a few minutes to realign with your inner self and get back on track. Sit in a comfortable position with your spine straight but not taut. You can either sit on the floor or a chair if you prefer that. Make sure your shoulders are relaxed and not hunched or pulled toward the ceiling. Close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing. Take a few deep breaths till you feel yourself calming down. With each breath, concentrate your energy on feeling confident and positive.

These routines help increase your mood and feelings of purpose and self-acceptance, reducing stress and calming the mind in the process. By being kind and compassionate toward yourself, you focus more on the process than the result. Remember, exams are about learning and not about gaining marks. Being self-aware of the fact will help you acquire knowledge that stays with you for long. Good luck!
