Comments Off on 5 Student Superstitions

We all know that success in examinations and at university in general is down to hard work and lots of study, but what do you think about superstitions? Do you have certain routines, lucky objects or even items of clothing that you wear to bring you luck? In this article we will explore some of the main superstitions from students around the globe. Regardless of cultural differences, all students still have their own ways and rituals that they believe will bring them luck. Here we take a look at 5 superstitions that some students believe in:

  • Lucky Stationery

This is a superstition that probably started from when you were a child. No matter how old your favourite pen becomes, you feel like you must use it during crucial times in your studies such as exams or when you are perfecting your technique as a dissertation writer. It can also work for pencil cases, brands or other common stationery items. Some students carry the same stationery with them through their entire time at university.

  • Washing Your Hair

Yes, you read that right. This is a superstition that originates in South Korea. Here it is believed that washing your hair effectively washes away your knowledge. In addition certain hairstyles amongst boys are considered to be lucky, particularly during exams. Some students would even go so far as to avoid cutting their hair during the months when they sit exams.

  • How You Dress

In China, red is considered to be a lucky colour so many students will often wear something red when they attend exams. Students also carry a lucky handkerchief with them even if it is in desperate need of being washed. The handkerchief should be kept in the right pocket. In India students will adopt the same dress while they are sitting their exams.

  • Exams

In some countries, students believe that crossing their fingers before the start of the exam is an important ritual.

  • Believing in God

Another strange superstition that some students follow, particularly before exams, is to worship God. Even if they don’t follow religion throughout the year, they are a devotee during examination periods.

There are so many superstitions and rituals that students believe or don’t believe in. Whether you think that your success at university is down to a superstition or just hard work is for you to decide. Do you have your own superstitions when it comes to essay writing or exams?
