School, College and Exams

School or college is where all young people spend most of their life until they are 18years old. If school or college is a stressful place to be this can have a negative impact on your overall happiness and wellbeing. There are so many aspects to school or college that might be stressful including;

Most people will struggle with a school issue at some point. You are not alone and there is support and help available to get you cope and manage. The best thing to do is to tell your parent or carer as well as your school or college if you are struggling.

When it comes to exams, remember that whilst they may be important and helpful in getting you to the next step of your journey, not everyone will or needs to get good exam results to live a happy and successful life. There are so many options for where your life may take you but it can be worrying if you’re not sure or feel the pressure to succeed academically. To cope as best you can in your exams, it’s really important that you balance working hard and revising with having breaks and down time. Just as a marathon runner can’t run every day, you need study free time/ days. Make sure you see your friends, have breaks, go out, spend time doing your hobbies and interests, have fun. Look after your physical and emotional health by eating and drinking regularly, getting enough sleep, doing some physical activity as well as resting.
