5 Things Every Student Should Do After Exams

Meritnation|Mar 22nd, 2017 01:53pm


Exams have been a flurry of timetables, checklists, flash cards and heartache. Here’s one more checklist for excellent things you can do after your exams. Because you deserve it!

 Plan a trip somewhere


Jump on a train or get in the car and get away from everything that is exam-related. Be it with your friends or family, exploring a new place is always exciting. Go to a famous city, or trek in the hills amidst the scenic beauty of nature. Safari and adventure sports can be thrilling for some.


 Catch up on movies/books/tv series that you missed


You might have missed out on so many new releases because of your exams. Unfinished books are not pleasant at all. Binge watch that tv series that you might have put a hold on. ‘Modern Family’ isn’t going to watch itself…


 Let your creative juices flow


Time to use those brushes and tubes of paint. Write a poem, make music or even make a scrapbook. There are so many hobbies you can involve yourself into. Photography, mastering martial arts, singing, learning a new music instrument, are some examples.


 Start your own YouTube Channel


All you need is a camera in working condition and your amazing self. Get an idea or two from famous vloggers online and start your own. See what you can share with the world. You’ll learn how to record videos using different camera angles, edit a video and post it online.


 Play sports and games


Many of you might have had to give up your favourite sport owing to academic pressures. Playing sports is like a breath of fresh air. Be it cricket, badminton, football or even basketball, sports is a great stress buster. Join swimming classes, zumba or any dance class to keep yourself fit and ready for another year at school.


So how are you enjoying your break after exams? Tell us in the comments section.

  • 29. Meritnation  |  March 29th, 2017 at 12:06 pm

    Hi Pinky,

    These tensions will never get over. Life is not about giving yourself unnecessary tension. Take some time off and relax. You will see that you’re able to perform and focus better than before. Listen to some great music, dance to your favourite beats or just go for a walk. We wish you all the best!

    Don’t worry, be happy. 🙂

    Team Meritnation

    My exams will be over on april 8. I’m going to say a ‘good bye’ to my Maths-RD Sharma ;p Then, I’ll read and re-read all my favourite bookS. Perhaps I’ll start blogging. I’ll answer all the questions in my quora feed; and lastly, I’ll switch to youtube and spend some time watching music videps of my favorite band, The Vamps. Thankyou so much Team Meritnation, for helping me with my studies throughout the year, and also for bringing this article to me.

    Hi Shalmina,

    We understand that you are under a lot of pressure but sometimes it is better to relax and chill. Take things slowly and you’ll get there. With a refreshed mind and outlook, you will be able to focus better in your studies. So enjoy the few days after exams because you deserve it. 🙂

    BTW how was your Science paper? We hope you did well. 🙂 Check out our analysis and solutions here: http://bit.ly/2n7rqoG.

    We wish you all the best for your forthcoming exams!

  • 48. Shalmina Muhsin  |  March 23rd, 2017 at 12:37 am

    Wow!, i wish, i really wish i was back in grade 5. I am currently in grade 10 and my exams ends on april 8. Probably, after my exams, i might not get a chance to have a holiday for myself, Since grade 11 is worse than grade 10. So, i will have to wait for my summer vacation which is for 3 months. I would be really glad if i have further time studying my portions but, unfortunately, there are no exact holidays and free time from all of these. So, i will have to wait for entire 2 years to get over with all of these. Also, waiting for 712 days is tedious!, hardly does anyone can manage it. so, i will have a bit of holidays but i wont get complete, relaxed days after all!!!!
