PM Modi had also asked students who were due to appear for the board examinations to adopt a "never give-up" attitude during a recent interaction here.
"Reality is, there is no medicine for self-confidence. Likewise, listening to long speeches won't help you either. We have to learn to test ourselves at every step of our lives," he told students then, adding that winning small battles through the course of our life brings the self-confidence.
Before that, Prime Minister had also launched his book "Exam Warriors", a collection of anecdotes from his growing up years, and with tips for handling exam pressure.
