coping with exams testing times by Audrey Thompson Which of the following statements is correct Exams are stressful Revision causes anxiety Exam pressure can make you ill If your answer is yes to any of the above then you are not alone It is no surprise that taking exams is one of the most stressful times in a young persons life particularly as their importance may have been drilled into them for months sometimes years beforehand Some pupils and students are able to handle the pressures they may get nervous but they cope Other people become anxious agitated bad-tempered and may even become literally ill or seriously depressed But it really doesnt have to be that way Charlotte Driessler aged nine who lives in south London didnt think of herself as stressed when she took her first major exams -- key stage one -- three years ago She just had butterflies in her stomach and felt a bit nervous But she still describes the experience on a scale of one to ten as a seven I think I coped with my exams quite well even though I thought I was going to fail but I didnt The situation was a little different for Zoe Leadley-Watkins who lives in south-east London when she took her GCSEs in 2000 and again at 18 last year when she took the countrys first AS examinations Everyone always says not to worry about the exams -- theyre not the end of the world and there is always next year -- but somehow it doesnt help But from her experiences last year she knows the stress before exams is often worse than the actual exam I didnt notice it at the time but I did get bad-tempered at home while doing my exams although I wasnt as bad as one of my friends She has an older brother who did really well
