Exams: How to survive.

Exam stress affects the majority of us, especially as finals come around. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed, but there are some fixes for these troubling times.

For example, realise that everyone learns in different ways, and that if you don’t get a concept it’s not your fault, and you just need to spend more time on it. Another thing to keep in mind, your mind is your body, treat your body well, and your mind will treat you well on your exams. Lastly, make sure you sleep well, and don’t rely on energy drinks and junk food to keep you awake.

Sleeping well statistically helps you to perform better on your exams, as your mind is more alert when you’ve had a full night’s rest.
