Tips for Beating Exam Stress

For any of our students, RHS or otherwise, exams are part of your course. If you have an exam coming up, be wary of the following:


  • Tension
  • Headaches or stomach pains
  • Irritability 
  • Change in appetite


These can be signs of exam stress and can ruin your mojo for that big day. If you are experiencing exam stress, or are worried that you may be in danger of experiencing it, take a step back and destress. This can be done a number of ways.


Don't Blame Yourself


If you feel you could have done more, maybe that’s true, but that’s not helpful. Don’t wallow in the ‘I could have done so much more!’ mentality if it’s affecting the way you behave now. Focus on what you can achieve today with regards to your revision.


Set yourself Realistic Goals


Re-learning the entirety of your course in a 24-hour, caffeine-fuelled revision binge is not going to be the most realistic way to prepare for your upcoming exams. Instead, try to set a reasonable time table that will allow you to get the most out of learning.


Don't overdo the Coffee


While there are clear benefits to drinking coffee before studying, drinking too much is not going to help you. Too much coffee can trigger more anxiety, digestive issues and even rapid heart rate, so drink with care! Instead, try to limit your coffee intake and stay hydrated as much as possible.


Get enough sleep


Believe it or not, getting enough sleep can be the difference between a good pass and a just-made-it pass. Lack of sleep can also affect your physical health and mental health. Before the big day(s), make sure you’re getting all the sleep you need to give yourself the edge for that exam.


Eat properly


Don’t let the stress of exams stop you from feeding yourself well. Eating right can have an effect on how well you can focus and study, so ensure proper nutrition while you revise. Here are some great foods for helping concentration.


Treat yourself


Don’t make the mistake of denying yourself breaks or moments for fun activities. Focusing all your energies on exam revision is not likely to give you better results than ensuring you have breaks where you can relax and reset.
