During the session, one of the things the students had to do was fill out a questionnaire about the reasons behind their stress. This was done to understand the level of examination stress and anxiety felt by college students under Arts, Science and Commerce stream of education. At the end of the ‘survey’ what was most prominent was the reason behind this stress. Some of these were:

  • lack of preparation

  • lack of time

  • low level of confidence

  • peer pressure

  • pressure from parents/social pressure

  • lack of clarity of what to do in future

Dr. Swati Pal, The Principal of JDMC said, “We are introducing emotional counseling as it has been proven that women are more prone to emotional issues. Failure to recognize and address the risk factors could eventually lead to major psychological challenges in youth which can be very disturbing. So educational institutions like us should play a positive role by intervening and providing them a conducive environment in college premises.”

She further added that They, as an institution, have taken up different issues each time and goes into them in great detail to help students understand the nuances and intricacies of the underlying issues. The entire effort is managed by the mentoring and counseling committee of the college.

In the words of one of the participant, Neha, “It was a very useful session as they could give us the exact reasons why we were feeling stressed and then gave us tips to handle individual areas”
