In terms of dealing with exam stress, for me I had one main outlet - gym.
I cannot put into words just how useful gym was and is to me as an outlet. I am a strong advocate for physical exercise, I myself use the gym intensely as a regular weightlifter training for strength, however, for exam stress even "low level" gym is still useful. I would recommend picking up cardio, such as bikes or running, or more favorably some weight/callisthenic movements!! Aside from gym, regular walks with friends helped me too. I have a dog and friends who live near by so we would go out daily for walks with him and these were a good chance to destress and unwind. Aside from gym/exercise/walking, pick up a TV show! I finished white collar and prison break during GCSEs and then Power, Bodyguard, Top Boy, and youtube series during A-levels.

Honestly, lack of motivation for me was also a struggle which is why most of my revision were in the last few weeks before exams. But to keep myself ticking over in the longer run-up, I just kept thinking about where i want to be in life, who i want to be, and how i can get there. I kept telling myself if i want to be earning 60k at 23 as an IB or corporate lawyer, sitting around doing nothing and failing Alevels wont get me there!
