New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed students as part of the 'Pariksha Pe Charcha' program on Wednesday evening.
The PM told students to be relaxed during examinations.
"You should not be afraid of exams but fear your surroundings in the coronavirus era.
"Teachers say that what is simple should be done first, but this advice about studies is not necessary and useful. When it comes to studies, first take what is difficult in it. My experience is, when officers bring difficult things to me, I try to do them first. Later I take simple things in hand," ," Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.
"I wake up in the morning and compete tough tasks first. Do not run away from difficult topics. Go outside the teacher syllabus and talk to them. Guide the students instead of interrupting them. Encourage children. If you encourage a weak child by placing your hand on the head, then it will definitely work," PM Modi added.
"Examination is an opportunity to build life, it should be taken as it is. We should keep on looking for opportunities to test ourselves, so that we can do better. We should not run."
