While it is normal for your child to be nervous during examinations, sometimes the nervousness gives way to fear. This leads to poor memory and retention during exam time. Communicate with your child that exams are about learning and not scoring marks. Alleviate his stress levels by not pressurizing him to excel every time. Praise him for good performance to boost his confidence but do not bring him down if he fails. Teach him discipline to avoid stress at the eleventh hour.
