It can seem never-ending, exam after exam, stress on top of stress. But what can you be doing in between exams to make the most of your time?
Your exam is over and you can’t do anything about it now – so what’s the point in over-thinking the paper and beating yourself up about it? If time management was a problem, make sure in the next exam you’re keeping watch of the clock! Learn from your mistakes but don’t let them get you down.
You’ll hear it all the time, but factoring in the odd bit of exercise will help clear your head and improve concentration if you’re revising for your next exam. We’re not talking daily marathons here – even a quick walk could help de-stress.
Completely underrated when you’re in your teens, but getting a good 8 hours sleep each night will leave you prepared for more revision – even when you really don’t think you can fit any more in!
After the stress of an exam and yet more revision to come, winding down is key to keeping your head. A quick phone call of strictly non-exam related chat to a friend can keep up spirits and leave you in a better mood to be productive.
Of course, it might feel like the last thing you want to do after an exam, but carrying on with revision will pay off come results day. Don’t fall at the final hurdle – think of what’s to come when they’re all over!
