Five little things to help you cope with exam stress

As exams are approaching for many people, it is important to try and remain as calm as possible. We know this is easier said than done, but these tips may help. Remember to take care of yourself. 

1. Get enough sleep
There is no point trying to learn things at 2am when your brain and body are in shut down mode, get some sleep and start again refreshed.

2. Eat properly
You need the energy to keep you going.

3. Don't compare your abilities with your friends
You all have different ways of absorbing information, so don't let their techniques make you feel bad about your own.

4. Take breaks
Taking the occasional break is important so that you don't become tired and run down.

5. Think positively
Just remember that exams are not the end of the world, so try your best but don't get over stressed. Try to focus on what you currently can do, rather than what you currently can't do.
