Mock exam season is approaching and that can often lead to a great deal of stress, affecting mental health in many ways. In this article I will be talking about some tips and tricks to ease the stress of the workload and some great ways to retain information for subjects you feel you know very little about!
I did all my gcse's this year & am now in year 12, I managed to pass all my exams and thought that i'd share some of the ways I managed to do so & managed to keep on top of everything. The most important thing is starting to revise as soon as possible, you then don't have to cram loads of stuff in a week or two before the actual exam itself (I was guilty of this at some times, we all do it) I regret leaving some revising to the last minute because nothing stayed in, however recaps the night before are very effective, but don't teach yourself anything new within 48 hours of the exam, it will stress you out.
Hope you all do great in any upcoming exams!! Good luck with revising and remember to not let the workload get ahead of you, take breaks every hour and always have food and drink near you when studying, perhaps revise to acoustic / classical music, nothing fast paced or too pop that may distract you, but music is good, you can even relate certain songs to certain facts which is quite helpful also.
