Pulling all-nighters, surviving on a poor diet, and getting minimal amounts of movement into your day can increase symptoms of anxiety. For your body's best performance, make sure you're getting 8/9 hours of sleep, enough slow-release carbs, less caffeine and more water, and at least half an hour of exercise per day.

Setting realistic goals, whether you have several weeks, days or hours before your exam, helps you to put everything into perspective. Acceptance of your situation and working within the realms of what you have maximises your productivity without the risk of burning yourself out.

When being constantly faced with new challenges, we often forget to look back at how far we have come and how much we have already achieved. Given that you have prepared well, there should be no reason for you to worry. Therefore, when experiencing a negative thought, try to replace it with a positive one.

Research shows that overuse of mobile phones not only causes stress, but can also have a negative impact on your mental health.So Check your social media feeds just once or twice a day,turn off all notifications and put your phone on airplane mode, or better still, switch it off after 9pm.

If you struggle with motivation, start in good time by doing something . It doesn’t matter how small, just something that helps with the upcoming exams early on.

 

Make  a timetable to organise what revision or essay work you are going to tackle each day. It really helps you set out what you need to do in small chunks.

Looking over some past exam questions or even answering some in exam conditions can help calm your nerves.
