Exam stress can start when you feel you can’t cope with revision, or feel pressure from your school or family. It can seem scary to talk about stress or anxiety. You might feel like nobody else is feeling this way. But bottling up stress and trying to deal with it on your own can often make the stress worse. So it can really help to talk.
Find out about dealing with exam and revision stress with Childline or pop into one of our youth hubs and speak to one of the Young Hackney workers.
