At the recent Pariksha Pe Charcha 2024 (PPC 2024) event, Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared valuable insights on conquering exam stress and preparing for success. Emphasizing the importance of practice, he urged students to dedicate time to writing practice before exams, drawing parallels to the notion that practice makes a man perfect.
In addressing the challenge of exam stress, PM Modi compared exam preparation to boarding a train. Just as one arrives at the train station early, identifies their compartment, and prioritizes luggage placement, students should mentally prepare before entering the exam hall. The crucial 10-15 minutes before the exam provides an opportunity for focused preparation, as highlighted by the Prime Minister during PPC 2024.
Highlighting the significance of thorough practice, PM Modi encouraged students to engage in extensive writing practice, drawing a comparison to how individuals who practice swimming are less afraid of drowning.
Commencing the event, Modi acknowledged the historic significance of the venue, where global leaders had once convened to discuss the future of the world. He reminded students that they were now participating in discussions about the future of India.
This year’s PPC witnessed an overwhelming response, with over two crore students registering through the MyGov portal.
The official notification reported a total of 22,631,698 students, accompanied by 14 lakh teachers and 5 lakh parents, participating in the seventh edition of the event. Nearly 4,000 individuals had the opportunity to interact with the Prime Minister during the program.
Notably, a hundred students from Eklavya Model Residential Schools attended the program for the first time, contributing to the event’s growing influence. PM Modi highlighted the substantial increase in registrations since the inception of PPC in 2018, underscoring its evolution into a mass movement.
Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, welcoming PM Modi, expressed the collective goal of making India a developed nation by 2047 under the Prime Minister’s leadership. He acknowledged the transformative impact of “Pariksha Pe Charcha,” which has evolved into a mass movement dedicated to shaping the future of the nation.
PM Modi’s insights at PPC 2024 offer students practical strategies for overcoming exam stress and achieving success, reinforcing the importance of preparation, practice, and mental readiness before entering the exam hall. The growing participation in the event reflects its increasing significance as a platform for empowering the youth and shaping the future of India.
