Exam stress: where to go for help

Sometimes the mainstream platforms do not help with student struggles of things like exam stress. Some students just do not find it helpful. Some students feel that the help they provide is too broad and it’s just not specific to them. 

Student Quote: “I just feel like, places like Childline are too basic when it comes to advice about exam stress, it’s as if they don’t know what each individual may be going through, so it’s not really helpful at all. I don’t think a lot of students actually use those sources because it’s not helpful to their personal situations.


Because of the feedback from students about the advice they get from websites, schools like mine have brought in a counsellor, so students have someone who will listen to them. A lot of teenagers of our generation feel like they’re seen and not heard.
