It’s exam time and students are busy in preparation of their board and annual exams of the present academic session. However the tension and pressure sometimes take it’s toll on them and they choose wrong ways before attempting their papers.
This year around 84,000 students will appear in the board exams and you can see the tension and urgency on their faces. To help them cope with the pressure Vadodara starts a 24/7 helpline for the students where they can call at any time of the day. The aim is to release their tensions and help them appear in exams with a fresh mind.
