‘LYS, A MEANS TO ACHIEVE GOALS’
As the prospective university students are up against a compelling exam in June, the experts state that Undergraduate Placement Exam (LYS) should be perceived as a means to reach the goals. Merve Yavuz, IUE Psychological Development and Counseling Centre Coordinator, who pointed that the students needed to keep a positive way of mind, stated that the exam was not a matter of life or death, and the last days before the exam should be spent by relaxing and taking it easy.
Yavuz said that students needed to focus on their past accomplishments prior to the exam. She said, “This will help keep their morale up. They need to pay attention to their sleep and eating habits. Using imagination in a positive way will surely help. Taking it easy and relaxing these last days before the exam is very important. Panicking, negative and mindless thinking would demotivate them. They need to believe that they did all they could and that they are ready to face the exam.”
Yavuz asked students to rate the level of their anxiety between 1 to 10. “1 means less and 10 being very worried. When you can take control of your worries, your anxiety level will drop and you will be concentrating on the exam easily. Also, the students can seek help from the guidance counselors of their schools and tune in to their exams better.”
‘Recommendations to Parents’
Yavuz also made recommendations to the parents, saying that their expectations might not compromise but parents need to pay attention to wishes and goals of their children. Yavuz made the following recommendations:
“Parents should lower their expectations of their children. On the contrary, they should support and encourage them about improving their weaknesses. And most of all, telling that they trust their children and believing that they did the best they could, would put their children at ease. Good and positive communication would comfort them, and lower the anxiety caused by ‘I need to meet my parents’ expectations’ thought, and make them focus on ‘I will succeed in this exam’ thought.”
‘What Mood Are You in YGS?’
Yavuz also provides a virtual counseling with an interactive film for prospective university students at http://www.ieu.edu.tr/tercih address. She makes more detailed recommendations to students on attention deficiency, lack of motivation, time management, exam anxiety with ‘What Mood Are You in *YGS?’. Students choose one of the four weather forecasts based on their YGS results and get information on certain topics.
