More than 3.1 million people enrolled in the National Secondary Education Examination (Enem) will have 5h30min to take the tests in languages, codes and their technologies and human sciences and their technologies, in addition to writing, this Sunday (21).

The competition that gives young people access to higher education takes place amidst controversies involving a mass dismissal by the body that organizes the tests, the National Institute of Educational Studies and Research (Inep), and under investigation by the Federal Court of Auditors, which wants to investigate whether or not there was interference in the test questions.

In an interview with CNN, the educator and educational consultant, Claudia Zuppini Dalcorso, spoke about how these insecurities intensify the students’ inherent anxiety on Enem’s day. “This brings more unnecessary anxiety to our students. I’m sorry these things happen.”

She emphasizes that Brazil’s authorities should protect young people from these external turmoil.

“It’s a shame that our society doesn’t take care of our students properly. This is such an important moment in their lives that we, as a community, should preserve them anyway.”

“All our governors should make a safety net as much as possible so that these young people have peace of mind on this day, because their anguish and anxiety were enough”, complements the educator.

During the interview, Claudia Zuppini spoke about the anxiety in this exam period that lasts until next Sunday (28), when the second stage will take place. For her, the Covid-19 pandemic may have further aggravated issues related to mental health.

“It’s an atypical moment in their lives, very important, and without a doubt this historic moment of the pandemic will influence this day of testing, which is no longer simple.”

Zuppini gives the tip for students to try to relax in this week of Enem. “In this moment of anxiety, you need to find what makes you feel good”. She also suggests that you avoid being around those who cause more nervousness and that it is not worth wanting to review all the content in a few days. “What you had to study, you’ve already studied. Now it’s about focus, determination and relaxation, because you’ve already assimilated this knowledge”.
