We all know that exams can be an extremely challenging and stressful time. If you’re struggling to manage your mood or anxiety levels, don’t keep it to yourself. Friends and family members can be a great source of support, as well as your teachers, the WHS Wellbeing Champions and our Sixth Form Mental Health Ambassadors.
These websites have lots of advice on taking care of yourself during revision, examinations, and waiting for the results:
