    Honestly? Take a day off - and I mean really off. Don't even think about school, exams, anything. Go out with friends, or family, or even by yourself. Make it an entire day just dedicated to having fun, getting out of the house and just relaxing. It might feel like the last thing you want to do but trust me, it helps so much. The next day start fresh, don't worry, and just gently prepare yourself for the exams. Don't think that you're going to fail, instead think that you're going to do really well because you're going to be fully prepared and ready to tackle whatever the examiners throw at you! You still have plenty of time to put things right, so don't be nervous.
    Make sure you take your day off!!!
    Hope this is helpful

    Crying is a great de-stressor. I personally have a quick bout once after breakfast and once before bed.

    I'll try to, maybe at the weekend. I have wasted days before procrastinating about revising then the day after feeling really down because I'd wasted a day and that means that I want to spend everyday revising. I suppose that means that I'll overwork myself. Well, I'll take a day off, thanks!

    I find it very hard to cry when stressed, instead I just throw stuff

    I find that calm.com is a fab solution for trying to get calm after an argument, being stressed out by a ton of work so on and so forth. You should definitely check it out! I stumbled across it unintentionally but it really works!

    I always make sure to have a part of the week where I have a break. Therefore, I look forward to that part of the week which motivates me more and stops me from feeling so stressed. I also usually wake up early so that I can get revision done and have the night free of revision. I only do that during the holidays and exam leave though, it's different during the school week.

    Not a problem! No doubt I'll be using it a hell of a lot in the next month because of AS levels... sigh.

    Im stressed as hell for GCSE's.
    I cant even focus on revision.

    But just take regular breaks, and dont overload all the revsion. take it easy and make sure you eat and sleep well.
    Just do a checklist of what ypu have to do each week, thats what i plan to do i never follow timetables so this is much easier for me. If you feel more stressed then talk to someone so you're feelings arent just blocked up in you. Trust me ik how u feel i have exam anxiety, so any tips you have would be good.. Hope this helped.x

    Dont count the days left, but make the days count.

    (same advice i posted somewhere else) Try and not stress it'll only make revision harder.
