Exam Stress

It's that time of year...

by Julia Field

Most students notice some anxiety and tension at the thought of sitting exams. Feeling anxious about assessment is normal, and to be expected. A moderate amount of anxiety may not be a bad thing as it can sharpen concentration and performance, helping us to create extra energy and momentum needed to keep us studying (even though we might prefer to be doing something else!) Some students, however, will experience a degree of stress and anxiety that is quite defeating. Their fears can affect them physically, for example, difficulty sleeping, headaches, nausea; or mentally, for example, lack of concentration, irritability, feeling overwhelmed.
