Exam Tips – Exam Guide and Coping with Stress

stress

Stress is something that we all experience. The right amount of stress helps us achieve the things we want and allows us to fulfil whatever aims we have for ourselves. If we are facing too much challenge our stress levels can rise to a point where they begin to have negative effects on our performance and on how we feel.

During exams period, it is important for you to set realistic goals as you revise – reward yourself when you meet these targets and don’t stress about an unobtainable level of perfection. If you start to feel stressed, try to challenge those negative thoughts by focusing on positives and previous successes. If you find yourself beginning to panic at any point during revision time or even during an exam, there are various relaxation techniques that will help.

A short guide is published by the Student Counselling Service at the University of Edinburgh to give you some ideas about recognising when your stress levels are too high, and help you do something about it.

The Student Counselling Service has also published the Step by Step Guide to Exam Success to give you some ideas about how you can get the marks you want in your exams with the minimum of stress and panic!

The Edinburgh University Students’ Association also published a Q&A guide to exams and deadlines:
