Here are some tips to beat the exam stress

1. Prioritise your time-

Prioritising your time, subjects and workload 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.

2. Make yourself a revision timetable-

Working out a daily routine and sticking to it is also good for the soul, as you’ll feel a lot more in control of how your day pans out. Remember to factor in regular breaks.

3. Exercise and eat well-

Exercise gets your blood flowing and your heart pumping – the result being that you sort of ‘wake up on the inside’. As a result, once you stop, you’re much more alert then you were before. Eating the right foods during stressful times is also absolutely crucial for mental health.

4. Have some perspective-

This is perhaps easier said than done, but try not to give yourself such a hard time. You’re doing your best and that’s the best you can do! Keep your eye on the bigger picture, and remember that one “meh” result isn’t the end of the world.

5. Avoid social media-

This will be a tough one for many students. Checking your Facebook during revision period is the worst type of procrastination possible. In addition to this, many of your friends will be in the same boat, so are likely to be talking a lot about how much they’re studying (or not studying). This is likely to stress you out even more, or at least influence how much time you’re spending revising.
