People Who Can Help You

If you do start feeling very anxious about your exams, it’s important to realise that you’re not alone. There are lots of people out there who can help.
Here are just a few:

Your parents or guardians have probably been through testing times, so they’re likely to be only too happy to talk through your concerns.

Confiding in a friend may be enough to remove some of your fears. After all, most people doing exams will be feeling the same.

Teachers, tutors and student liaison officers
You can talk to the people responsible for your course about any concerns you have about your exams.

Support groups
Many groups meet to support each other about matters such as stress and exam pressure. Find out about them from teachers or lecturers, student liaison officers or your local medical centre.

Your doctor should have some sound advice.
