Ten tips for exam stress

Take time out from those exam stress blues with our ten handy revision tips…

  2. Organise & prioritise! Don’t spend loads of time revising your favourite subject because it’s easy, give ALL your subjects enough revision time. Add a little more time to those subjects you find more challenging.
  3. ASK FOR HELP! If there is a particular subject you are struggling with ask your teacher for help. No point revising work you don’t understand! Keep breathing.
  4. Use mind maps, diagrams and colour coding to make revising more interesting and the information more memorable.
  5. Stay hydrated and eat things like fruits, nuts & ice-cream to keep you awake and alert!

  7. Get a good night’s sleep – your mind takes in more when you’re rested.

  9. Tell someone what you revised. Explaining back to someone what you’ve been revising is one of the best ways to make sure you really know it.
  10. And lastly be CONFIDENT, you got this!
