Campaign: To help students combat exam stress

Exams can take their toll on students. I recently took my A-levels and while I did okay, it a really stressful time.

 

There is so much pressure on young people to do well, but many don’t realise the impact these expectations can have.

 

I would often have sleepless nights before exams and constantly be worried, which isn’t healthy for anyone.

 

I think that while exams are important, they’re not necessarily a reflection on someone’s ability.

 

So with Fixers, I have made a poster showing different student's experiences of exam stress.

 

I hope it will encourage others to speak to someone if they are feeling overwhelmed. 

 

I also want them to realise that academia is not the only way to be successful.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
