Calm Exam Stress

Discover Your Hidden Ability To Enhance Your Chances Of Getting The Grades You Really Deserve...

Anxiety is a normal reaction to a stressful situation. Most people experience some anxiety and tension when preparing for and sitting exams.
A certain amount of adrenalin flowing is useful and appropriate, a spur to being alert, to concentrating fully and to performing well.
Too much anxiety, however, can be debilitating. It may be accompanied by:
  • Feeling sick or plagued by 'butterflies' in the stomach
  • Lack of appetite or comfort eating
  • Poor sleep, bad dreams or feeling constantly tired
  • Mood swings, especially short temper
  • Headaches, dizziness or faintness
  • Loss of motivation, feeling numb or depressed

These unpleasant symptoms may themselves add to your worrying. They can drain your energy, reducing your ability to concentrate and distracting you from your revision. The more you think about the approaching exams, the more you may feel trapped in a viscious cycle of hopeless worry and stress. On the day, your exam marks may suffer as a result.

Stress Costs Marks

Research carried out in collaboration with the AQA exam board shows that: 
STRESSED GCSE CANDIDATES GET LOWER RESULTS
BBC News has reported that: Teenagers who stress about doing well in their GCSE exams are likely to get lower results than peers who remain calmer.
Researchers said pupils who worried about grades scored up to one and a half grades lower than their peers.
The difference between those who never worried and those that always did could be the difference between an A* and a B grade, the researchers said.
"There is no doubt that test anxiety, or to be more precise a high degree of worry over one's performance or the consequences of one's performance, has a detrimental effect on GCSE performance.”
   

Help Yourself...

Breathe & Relax
Begin to calm yourself by taking a breath in as you count to three; hold the breath for a moment and breathe out slowly as you count to five.
You can use this method at any time in any place when you wish to feel calmer.
You can increase your feelings of relaxation by simply by closing your eyes, counting from one to ten and with each out-breath saying the word ‘relax’ to yourself.

Take a Break!
Taking a 20-minute healing break every two hours or so, allows your mind and body to recover – it’s more than just a luxury to feel good! Your mind & body need a chance to replenish the internal supplies of available energy - to clear up the backlog of unfinished business and prepare for another hour and a half of good work, play and health.
