Before Exams 

Take Breaks while revising 

This is one of the best ways to deal with stress. I know it’s easy to get carried away with revision especially when your stressed about exams but if you don’t take breaks in between you will get burnt out and getting burnt out right before your exams is going to make your health and performance in the exams worse. You could use the pomodoro technique which gives you regular breaks. If you just keep studying for hours on end, then you will be more and more put off doing it whereas if you take breaks you will feel a lot more refreshed and ready to learn.  



Exercise is a scientifically proven way lift your mood and help with stress. Again, I do realise that it can be difficult to make time while you are revising but at the end of the day your health is more important. Half an hour a day is enough to help with stress. 



Make sure you find time for things you enjoy, this can provide a nice break from all the revision and. This is a great way to deal with stress as you will feel refreshed as you will be taking a break to do something you like. 


During Exams 


We all know what a good night’s rest can do so make sure you get enough sleep the night before an exam because if you are tired during an exam then you will perform worse and you will be more stressed thinking about how tired you are. You can pack your bag the night before to avoid that stress in the morning. 


Eat properly 

Make sure you eat a good breakfast as we all struggle on an empty stomach. Even a small breakfast is better than none. 


Don’t compare answers 

After an exam do not compare answers because even though it feels great to know that everyone else got the same answers as you it feels even worse to know they didn’t. Just focus on the exam afterward and do not think about it anymore. 


I hope these help you stay stress free during the exams and good Luck!
