For the student sitting the tests, for nervous parents, for siblings who have to be extra lenient during this stressful time – even for the family dog, sensing tension around the home!
But there is light among the scrambled revision notes.
From tips from parents and students who have been there, to a revision guide to keep you organised, we have stress busting tips and brain boosting snacks to get you through this exam season.
The key is to stay calm and focused.
It is OK to feel a little bit stressed or anxious – it makes us work harder.
But try to get organised and the rest will follow. Setting up a revision plan is a good place to begin.
Set out which subjects you need to study for, and by when.
Then split the subject into modules or study sections, so you know roughly how much time you need to spend on each area.
You can use our handy revision planner, found here, to get you started.
