5 Tips to Cope with Exam Stress

Our maths and English tutors in Cambridge, 
Ely, Newmarket and Huntingdon have been helping to tutor GCSE, A level and SATs students for several months now. They’re still supporting our students right through the exams. Here’s our tips to see you through the next few weeks.

Tip #1 – Sleep.

Whilst it’s really tempting to burn the midnight oil, working too close to bedtime will over stimulate the mind and make it harder to sleep. Stop studying earlier in the evening, chill a bit and then get to bed.

Tip #2 – Take a break.

The brain can only concentrate for about 40/45minutes in a block. Take breaks. Your brain will love you for it. Get away from your work for a few minutes. 

Tip #3 – Eat

Your brain needs fuel. Protein, fruit and veg will feed it well. Coffee and chocolate muck around with blood sugar levels and cause big mood swings.

Tip #4 – Breathe

If you’re feeling anxious, slow you breathing – 5 counts in and 5 counts out. It really works to calm you down.

Tip #5 – Laugh

A good laugh is great for cutting through stress. Do plenty of it! Plan how to celebrate the end of the exams.
