Receiving exam results, can be a very stressful time, so here are some tips to relieve the symptoms of stress, whilst waiting for your results
TALK......don't keep feelings bottled up. Talk to your support network(s). This can be friends, family, professionals, helplines.
DISTRACTION......use distraction techniques if you are feeling stressed or anxious. Music, talking, exercise, meditation, mindfulness colouring, dancing
CATASTROPHISING ......try not to predict or catastrophise the outcomes, wait until you have the full facts. Otherwise thoughts can snowball.
PANIC.....STOP yourself from panicking, the nerves that you are experiencing are totally normal. Many others have similar feelings.
SUPPORT.....arrange to collect results with others.
UNIQUE......remember we are all unique. Try not to compare results, we all have different strengths in different subjects, it's what makes you, YOU
CALM.....if you don't get the grades you had hoped for, remain calm. It's not the end of the world. When your head is feeling clearer explore your options. There is always a different route
