One of the criteria by which competitive exams assess candidates is how well they perform under stress, but a lack of stress management results in students underperforming in limited-hour tests. To address the issues, especially for JEE Main and NEET aspirants, PeakMind – an EdTech – has launched a WhatsApp-based course called ‘COMPETE’.
“The program aims to engage students in tuning them into productivity, mindfulness, counteracting stress, nervousness, performance anxiety and adversity, and make them adept with quick strategies for their performance improvement. The students can contact at any time. Contact the coaches for prompt help and assessment. More than 5,000 candidates from leading schools and educational institutions have already benefited from the program,” the edtech said.

Commenting on the launch, PeakMind CEO Neeraj Kumar said: “Competitive exams can take a big toll on young minds. These programs allow the student to achieve more with our proprietary PRIME framework that includes productivity, resilience and mental strength, intellect, mindfulness and emotional well-being.”
“This instills even more confidence to deliver higher performance. We are excited to make this groundbreaking program available to individual students, which will lay the groundwork for more than one million students and their families to bear fruit for their unwavering time, efforts, financial and emotional investments to achieve their dreams. he added.
“Previous studies indicate that more than 60 percent of college students are adversely affected by the emerging exam stress, anxiety, and lack of confidence. In addition, as many as 45.1 percent of college students develop moderate to severe symptoms of anxiety, with a tragic 29 percent that slides into depression. Unfortunately, these symptoms often go unnoticed and affect the personalities of these impressionable minds, who are on the threshold of adulthood, for life,” the release said.
