Exam Stress and Anxiety

How you can help your son manage anxiety and stress in the lead up to exams. 

This week I have spoken to several anxious students and parents about preparation for exams. Parents want to know how they can assist their sons and students want to know how they can be prepared. Last weekend I also  watched the Sunday show on TV1 where they explored the topic of anxiety and the pressures that young people face. I encourage you and your son to take the time to watch the clip as it suggests some good techniques on how to manage stress and anxiety. I have also attached below an article from The Spinoff. This article explores different ways to study and how there is no 'one size fits all' model for study and for learning.
