Exam Motivation and Anxiety

Hasan Kalyoncu University (HKU), continues organizing seminars about the topics such as exam motivation and anxiety, correct choice of profession and career. HKU which always adds on new seminars that poses great importance for the university nominee students came together with the students in Adıyaman.
 
The seminar which was carried out in the culture and congress center of Adıyaman Regional Directorate of Turkey Petrol Incorporated Company took place with the participation and deep interest of thousands of students. The attendants of the seminars from HKU were the rector Prof. Dr. Tamer Yılmaz and Hasan Eşici who is assisstant professor in the department of Psycological Guidance and Counselling in Education Faculty.
 
‘If you make use of the time well and effectively, you are going to be the ones who succeed.’
 
The seminar started with the presentations of Ass. Prof. Hasan Eşici. Eşici informed the students about exam anxiety and dimensions of the anxiety in a detailed way. He gave the students useful tips about the dimensions and components of anxiety before the forthcoming YGS exam. Eşici who gives suggestions to the students in terms of using the time effectively told: ‘Time is one of the most important concepts for you. If you make good use of time and use it effectively during the marathon of the exam, you will be the ones who succeed. The moment you are in the exam is really important when it is the day and time for the exam. Even if you solve the exam questions very well before the exam or even if you solve all the questions when you look over all of them after the exam, it is not going to work and pose meaning as long as you don’t make good use of time during the exam.
 
The most important thing is to focus on the questions and be calm during the exam. There is one more issue posing importance which is your desire of the exam genuinely. If you tell yourself before the exam; ‘I won’t be able to do in this exam, or it doesn’t happen’, this situation not only will have the worst effect on you during the exam, but also can cause you to give wrong answers to the questions that you know very well. You should make yourself ready for the exam by always telling yourself that you want to pass this exam genuinely and you will do your best. Moreover; do not forget that it wouldn’t be end of the world even if you don’t pass the exam. If you can’t pass the exam, you may have better results next year by taking lessons from that year, by determining the lacking sides, and by getting prepared better.’
 
‘’My biggest advice for the students is to first choose the correct profession; then university’’
 
HKU rector Prof. Dr. Tamer Yılmaz, who made important explanations to the students as to the correct career choices after Hasan Eşici, told: ‘‘Dear precious students; we are doing a career meeting. You should care about a few important criteria. First of all; you should know your own character very closely. At this point; guidance counselors will provide help for you. However; primarily, you should look over yourself. You should determine which career option will make you happy. There are some cliché professions that are always being stressed. First of all, think carefully that these are important professions; however; decide on whether you desire these departments and then make your choice. If you will choose a profession, it is really crucial how much harmony you have with the profession rather than the profession’s quality. My biggest advice for the students is to first choose the correct profession; then university.
 
Universities have three main duties, we should examine them. First duty of the universities is to implement the teaching and education in a very good way; generally, most of the universities carry out this duty in a very good way, nevertheless, they do not care about other points. The other points that pose importance include the necessity to grow up researching and innovative generations. HKU is your university; although we can’t come up all the time you can be our guests whenever you want. Furthermore; our university is really assertive. It is the first foundation university within the region and more successful than most of the universities in İstanbul.
