REVISION STRESS SUPPORT THREAD

hi guys, so i'm aware that many of you are revising for upcoming exams at this point and are hard at work- i think most people can say they'll get upset or too exhausted at one point etc for a variety of reasons, and sometimes we may struggle to cope with these feelings.

so i thought this support thread would be nice to share your experiences and if you have any ways of coping with these lows. i'm hoping we can support one another in this stressful period and help others to feel like they're not alone

just wanted to say here that these exams are not the end of the world- and remember to take breaks!!

one thing i do whenever i get stressed during revision is just taking a break from the work; i leave my desk completely and try not to think about it. i might listen to music or watch a (short) episode of a tv show. once i'm feeling in a better state, i go back to my work and try to break it down again.
have you got any of your own methods?

Love this thread! Breathe, and remember that health always comes first- without that you can't do anything. Exams whatever it feels like are not the end of the world, and there is always another way of doing things. We will be okay, all of us

Hey all,

Make sure you are looking after yourself at this busy time! Revision and examinations are important, but so is your physical, mental and emotional health.

Please make sure you are taking breaks!

A thing I always tried and also encourage you to try and so is not to study/work in your bedroom. I know this may not be possible for everybody, but your bedroom should be a place of calm and rest - a place to break away from sources of stress.

On that note, on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram we will be posting some of our revision top tips tomorrow!

Good luck everybody! :charm:

adding onto this:yep: library is always a good place but if you can't avoid working in your bedroom, make sure you don't work on your bed as that's where you sleep and it's better that you don't mesh the two together.
also means you won't have unexpected naps halfway through revision

Scheduling your time helps too so you know where you are at and what you're doing rather then have your mind all over the place!

re, physics, english lang and computer science- night before.
english lit- not very much as it was my strongest subject.
biology, maths, chemistry, geography- a lot.
business, french- i did a fair bit.

that being said the amount of revision i did didn't equate to the grades i got- a 6 in biology and a 9 in re:lol:
try not to think these exams as the end of the world, because they're honestly not:nah:
as long as you've done your best that's all that matters- i certainly do not recommend overworking yourself.
good luck anya:hugs:

That's a good tip But if you wish to reward yourself with naps after finishing revising that's also fine :yeah:

i hope you've all been doing okay today. no one feels like they've worked hard enough so you're not alone- you've worked hard throughout the year so don't punish yourself for it. it'll be okay.

if a certain thing isn't going into your brain, mark it and move onto the next piece of revision. come back to it later with hopefully a less stressed mind.
