How To Deal With Examination Failure

According to John Maxwell, the difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure. This means that all people fail at one point in their lives, but what makes the difference is the way they react to the failure, and the willingness to not quit. Today, we are keen on showing you how to deal with examination failure if your ICAN examination did not go the way you wanted it to be.

We agree that if you do not get the result you were expecting or hoping for, it can really knock you for six. In fact, failing even the most minor test – let alone a Major exam like ICAN– can leave you feeling frustrated, dejected and devastated, not to mention embarrassed. Knowing how to manage your behaviour and emotions if you fail your professional ICAN exam isn’t usually something you will find instinctive. Therefore, the first step to getting back on your feet is not to be too hard on yourself. Instead, take it slow and walk on the examination path again.

How To Deal With Examination Failure

These are proven ways you can cope with examination failure:

#1 Resist The Urge To Agonize

We understand that your emotions will be on the edge when you know all your efforts, the sleepless nights and the money you spent didn’t come through. However, we strongly advise that you don’t brood over the situation. Instead, do these:

  • Do Something You Love No Matter How Small  
  • Sweat Out Your Emotions  
  • Spend Time With Someone Who Makes You Laugh 

Failure can evoke frustration and the unshakeable feeling that you’ll be devoid of happiness forever. Remind yourself that these feelings are temporary by engaging in activities that bring you joy — doing so reinforces that life goes on and everything will be okay
