Coping with exam pressure

coping with exam pressure

As exams fast approach the pressure is steadily building. At this time you need to take a second to reflect and remember who you are doing these exams for and why you are doing the exams. The answer to both questions is yourself. You are doing these exams not your parents, siblings, friends or anyone else and you are doing this for you. Any pressure you experience should therefore be the pressure you have created for yourself. 

Here are a few tips for coping with exam pressure. 

1. Remain focused and on-task 

Do not let dealing with the pressure become your priority. Remain focused on your preparation for the remaining time you have left, do not allow feelings of doubt creep in and force you to change your approach. What you have been doing to date has worked so carry on as before and the exam will become much less daunting.
