MUMBAI: With Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) exams around the corner, anxiety seems to be gripping students. The state board’s initiated helplines have been buzzing for the past few days, with each of the 10 counsellors receiving over 30 calls from students and parents.
Unsure about whether they will remember all they have learnt seems to be the most common issue, said, counsellors. “There is a lot of anxiety among students on whether they will remember what they have studied until now. This is creating problems during last-minute preparations. We are advising students not to try and learn anything new right now and focus on whatever they have learnt already,” said a counsellor, Gopal Bhagat, who has been answering around 30 calls every day.
