How to get yourself through the exams

Exam season is finally here – whether you are sitting SATs exams, GCSEs or A Levels. Tutoring young people day in day out, we understand how important this point in your life is to you.

We also know what a struggle it can be to get through it all – especially when you are not feeling confident.

So, our fab tutors across Manchester and Cheshire would like to share some thoughts with you to help you on your way.

  1. Keep going, don’t give up. It takes courage to sit any exam, and you have loads of it. Look at all of your achievements so far. Those practice exams you didn’t think you could do, those quotes you remembered, the way you picked yourself up after not doing so well and kept going… Incredible. You CAN do this!
  2. Keep trying. Tempting as it is to think you are rubbish at a subject that is important, don’t listen to negative thinking. Instead, do something positive today to help you tackle your fears: create mind maps to single out areas you know about to give you confidence. Then mind map the areas of the syllabus you are still unsure about. Tackle those first.
  3. Take each day as it comes. Every day is a new day. If yesterday’s revision didn’t go to plan, let it go. Instead of dwelling on what went wrong, think about what you can do to put it right. Struggling with something specific? Get help with it. Ask teachers, look online, arrange a tutor.

Remember: worrying gets you nowhere. Your worth in life is not measured by your SATs scores, or your final exam results.

While exams can open up doors and offer opportunities, there is so much to experience in life and look forward to.

Give your all to these exams now, and try your best. No one can expect anything more of you.

Then look forward and focus on your next challenge in life without looking back or worrying about how you might have done.
