WEB-Based e-Personal Counseling (e-PC) Model Reduces Anxiety in the Face of National Examination


In accordance to the development of information technology and the industrial revolution 4.0, interaction between counsellors and clients is not only done through face-to-face relationships, but also through the virtual (internet) of the e-Personal Counselling (e-PC) which discuss problems, anxieties, and anxieties are a part of everyone’s life from time to time. Sometimes problems seem so overwhelming that it is difficult to concentrate on studying and managing daily obligations. Sometimes students avoid seeking for help when they feel unmotivated or have unclear sensations and something is not right. While students conducting counselling conventionally feel insecure and dare to meet counselling guidance teachers, in consequence the students not being able to convey all the problems they have, besides that many students still think that the Counseling Teacher is like the police school where every student who meets the teacher must be problematic students. So, e-Personal Counseling (e-PC) is expected to be a solution to solving students’ problems. The national exam also makes teachers, school administrators and worried if their children do not pass the national exam. These concerns have even triggered the emergence of new problems, such as students who are too stressed before the national exams, suicide, or teachers and school principals who commit acts of cheating in order to graduate their school students.
