Exams...

Wednesday, 13 May 2015

This may be a stressful time for most of you with your exams right now. 
Exams can be really useful in helping you get into university, or giving you that extra push you need for your future. However, don't let them get you over stressed, sure, work hard at them and use that opportunity to give it the best you can...but enjoy them. When one is over and done with that's one less exam you have left to do. You can get there! 
You can also have a happy and successful future, grades don't determine everything in life. They are a letter, a grade on a piece of paper, don't let it determine your abilities and opportunities. Most importantly, don't compare yourself to others.


When you go into one of your exams, you may have the horrible thoughts in your head much like: 
"I'm going to fail!"
"I can't do this!"
"I feel like everyone is staring at me"
"I can't remember this!"


How to not worry in an exam
Calm Down! Take loads of deep breaths. I am currently going through exams myself right now and it's not nice at all, particularly since I have anxiety and I am that one person that feels like everyone's looking at me. Just clear your mind of all negative thoughts, just write down what you know. Overthinking with thoughts that aren't necessary will only distract your concentration. It's okay if you don't know some questions, move on and go back to it. You are so bright in so many ways and everyone has different capabilities, this may be your most dreaded subject, but it's okay. You're not expected to enjoy everything, I find when you don't enjoy what you learn, you don't really learn it at all. That's okay.


What I do in exams
What works best for me, is pretending you have someone special next to you if you feel anxious. Think that they are there next to you protecting you and sending you all the answers haha! Personally, Gareth and I exchange our imaginary fairy that does exactly that (sounds silly but I love it, it really helps us both). The mind plays a big part in it, yes the brain is where all your knowledge is but it's also where all our thoughts and feelings are, just remember to remain calm and do your best. It's not the end of the world. Your grade should never determine your future and happiness.
