Stress and Exams

Students who manage best in exams:

  • Maintain positive relationships with family and friends
  • Continue to allow some time for exercise and leisure
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Eat sensibly
  • Have planned time for study
  • Are organised
  • Learn and practice simple techniques for relaxation (see the school counsellor for ideas)

Warning signs that stress may be exceeding a helpful level include:

  • Irritability
  • Tiredness
  • Poor concentration
  • Poor short term memory
  • Recurring worrying thoughts
  • Lack of tolerance for others (you may not detect that in yourself)
  • Anxious about little things
  • Listlessness
  • Prone to bursts of anger and tears
  • Indications of feeling ‘down’, alone or misunderstood
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Indigestion, poor appetite.

No one sign necessarily is cause for worry and these signs need to be considered in the context of your life. However, it is better to seek help than to struggle with worries by yourself. Signs of depression or anxiety in particular should not be ignored.
