A “Pre-examination Counselling and Guidance” session for the undergraduate students was conducted on 2/12/2021, to support and help our students deal with stress in the run-up to exams, which was the need of the hour with the university exams fast approaching. Dr.Matilda Arthur, MBBS, MD(Psychiatry), Erode, who has a special interest in adolescent counselling gave tips to the students on discovering everyday strategies to cope with the exam pressure. She spoke on self-care, getting organized and some dos and don’ts while facing the exams. The session turned out to be worthwhile by impressing upon the students the need to approach the exams as a game, bearing in mind that self-care and studying smart are sine qua nons to succeed.
