  • Allocate time for activities you enjoy.

  • Talk to others about how you're feeling

  • Take care of yourself, whether it is physical or mental—prioritise self-care.

  • Adapt your study methods and environment to suit your preferences.


  • Preparation is key. Organise your items the night before to save time and avoid any unnecessary stress in the morning. Starting your day with a positive mindset can help set the tone for the rest of the day.

  • Stay grounded by incorporating a breathing exercise that helps you feel centred and focused. Take your time during the exam to ensure you answer each question to the best of your ability.


  • Avoid comparing yourself to others. Focus on your progress, reward yourself, and take breaks to reduce stress. If you have multiple exams, try and relax before your next one.
