How to beat exam stress

A little bit of stress can be a good thing as it motivates us to knuckle down and work hard. That old familiar knot in the stomach that suggests exams are looming. Whilst some people like to believe a bit of stress can be good around exam time, science suggests otherwise. When we're stressed, our brains release high levels of Cortisol which clouds the way we think and gets in the way of rational thinking. Therefore, stressing about this stuff is likely to lead to us performing less well on exam day. It is worth taking ten minutes to think about how we could reduce our stress levels.

TIPS:

●      Learn to recognize when you are stressing out. A break or chat with someone who knows the pressure you are under will get things into perspective.

●      Start studying well before the exam. Make sure your schedule provides for sufficient revision time. As any good test-taker will tell you, the revisions are more important than the first time study.

●      Prioritize your time, subjects and work-load will help reduce your stress levels, as you'll be able to ensure that the really important stuff is covered and at the right time.

●      Get organized.  Work out a daily routine and stick to it. This’ll make you feel in control of things.

●      Exercise is a proven stress buster, as it releases endorphins in your brain, which are basically happy hormones. So no matter how exhausted you are, always find some time for exercise.

●      Avoid social media as it serves as a distraction.
