Why bragging about exam expectations is a good thing

We are taught from an early age that boasting is not considered a desirable trait. But research shows people feel pleasure talking about themselves. So I have a message to the well-prepared student who leaves the exam hall and says, self-deprecatingly: "I got lucky." There is no harm in saying sincerely, "I think my hard work paid off. I believe I did well."

The biggest stress for students: parental pressure

As an educator and parent for nearly three decades, I am pleased to read concerns about students being under too much academic pressure.
