Getting Ready for Exams

Exam time can be stressful, but sometimes a little perspective goes a long way. Sharing a nugget of wisdom can often be a big help, as can spreading positivity.

The power of positive self-talk is largely underestimated as we demand so much of ourselves.  If a friend were struggling we would surely reach out and say something kind or offer to help, yet our first instinct is not to do that for ourselves.   When you hear a student say something like: “I think I’m gonna fail” or “this is going to be hard” ask them to say something positive out loud like “I’ve got this” or “I’m really good at multiple choice”.
