Hurdles Faced by Secondary 5 English Students

Poor preparation for National Examinations
As the National Examinations come up, students may feel nervous that they have not prepared as well as they should. This exam is more determinative of a student’s future, and it is no secret that students will experience pressure to do well in exams. Teachers, peers, and parents could be contributing factors to a student experiencing stress and anxiety over their exams, as they are made aware that these exams are important for their future.

Poor time management during exams
Another issue students face is their inability to manage time during their examinations. At times, students tend to spend a lot of time on one question while neglecting the others, reducing the number of marks they could have gotten on their entire examination. Students need a balanced approach to answering all the questions instead of focusing on one single question.

Busy schedules
Students in Secondary 5 will undoubtedly have busy schedules due to their commitments inside and outside the classroom. Too much time being spent on other commitments could take away the time students should use to prepare for their National Examinations. This could have a detrimental effect on their results, as it is important that students do well on their exams to ensure a good future.

Inability to ask questions
At this stage in their secondary education, Secondary 5 students may feel embarrassed to ask questions about their progress and about how they can improve. Students should not feel ashamed that they have not learned enough as it is pointless to regret the past. Instead, students should focus on how to improve themselves and move forward in the remaining time so that they can do their best for their examinations
