Prime Minister Narendra Mohan Sunday confessed that he was an ordinary student and had bad hand-writing.
In his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ radio programme, Modi, addressing school students of the country who are to appear for their board examinations, said that he was “an ordinary student who never got very good marks”.“My hand-writing was also bad and maybe my teachers passed me in my examinations as they might not have understood what was written,” he said, in a jocular bid to lighten the exam-pressure on the students.

Don’t compare your children with others, Modi advises parents

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday advised parents not to compare their children to others as it results in unnecessary pressure on them.
Addressing a special episode of his regular radio address to the nation “Mann Ki Baat” focusing on examinations, Modi said: “Parents must not compare their children with others as it puts needless pressure on them during examinations.”
“Many parents have a feeling that their child should be the best at studies. They want their child to make them proud in their circle of friends and family. In reality, it is the parent who wants to bask in the glory of their child,” he said.
“Don’t take unnecessary stress of exams. Just be confident and believe in yourself and you will get good results,” he added.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and other central and state board examinations for Class 10 and 12 will be held in March.
Modi had earlier this month invited students, teachers and parents to share their exam-related experiences for the monthly radio programme ahead of the board and competitive exams.

Compete with yourself, not others: Modi to students

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday said students preparing for board and competitive examinations should compete with themselves and not others in order to avoid stress and succeed.
“We must not waste our energies in competing with others. Start competing with yourself and make sure that your present is better than your past,” Modi said during a special episode of “Mann Ki Baat”, his regular radio address to the nation that focused on examinations.
“We are responsible for making exams a burden. We should stop doing it,” he added. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and other central and state board examinations for Class 10 and 12 will be held in March.
Modi had earlier this month invited students, teachers and parents to share their exam-related experiences for the monthly radio programme ahead of the board and competitive exams.
