Exam stress and revision

Feeling overwhelmed by exams and revision

We know that revising and exams are a normal activity within our education system. In fact when I look back to school and university, all of the revision, essays, dissertations, tests and exams seem to have been continuous. At times, we can feel overwhelmed and under pressure – and the reassurance that we will be loved no matter what our results are just doesn’t help.

Maybe you are struggling to focus on revising or find that, no matter how hard you work, you’re getting nowhere.  Instead you find yourself overwhelmed and unable to recall what you’ve learnt – or perhaps you try to work for longer, burning the midnight oil, getting up early and taking solace in social media. Perhaps it’s time to ensure you don’t let the stress and anxiety cause you to perform below your potential.

“my son was really struggling with focus and motivation for his exams. Following sessions with Clare he has been much more relaxed and focused about the whole process, and has completely taken responsibility for his revision which has made a huge difference to our relationship, because I am no longer stressed and feeling like I’m in a constant battle with him” – from a happy Cobham mother

“Using techniques that she shared I was able to overcome the stress related issues that I had previously experienced during exams.  I am delighted to say that my GCSE results benefited enormously” – A GCSE Student
