Exam periods can be busy and stressful but there is lots of information available to help you prepare for and cope with the pressure. Check out our top tips or these alternative ideas:
Coping with exam stress:
If exam stress is getting too much for you and you do not feel like you can cope, talk to somebody about it.
The Mental Health and Wellbeing Team offer counselling, health and well being advice and chaplaincy support to all Birmingham City University students.
Mind provides advice about how to recognise if stress is getting out of hand, and what to do about it when you are a student.
If things in your personal life are affecting your exam performance it is important to tell the University as soon as possible. It is risky to go ahead with sitting an assessment if you know that you are not well, either physically or mentally. If you don’t feel well enough to take an assessment you can ask to take it at a later date by using the Extenuating Circumstance procedure.
