Immense pressure to get good marks in exam leads to:
"¢ High stress level or hypertension.
"¢ A student gets discouraged & demotivated to complete the task in short period of time.
"¢ Heavy work load & participation to be always first in class leaves no free time to a student & he cannot enjoy his age & life.
"¢ In adequate amount of sleeping time.
"¢ Difficulty to awake in class actively.
"¢ If the student becomes desperate to be the best, he may try cheating on assignments and tests.
The student may believe that he must do whatever it takes to do well in school, even if it means cheating on an assignment or test. This type of behavior may influence other students in his class to cheat as well. By dividing daily tasks/assignments is a right way to remain stress free, rather than running all stupid ways to complete it in one day.
Getting good grades is no doubt a good thing to be the best & successful in all fields from schooling to graduation to jobbing. But over excessive fights to become the best is a wrong way of achieving success in life.

When the student successfully manages the pressure of doing well in school & parents also co-operate their children in achieving good marks without mental pressure, you yourself will see the outcomes & will enjoy the success in life.
