4 quick and simple ways to feel zen when essay and exam deadlines are looming

Do you no longer want to feel anxious and overwhelmed before your next exam? Take 5 minutes to read up on the top tips you need to know to decrease your stress and feel ready to take on your next academic challenge!

Put this exam into perspective

You will take many exams in your lifetime. If you are feeling particularly nervous about one, just keep in mind that there will be many more exams in your future. One grade will not define your life. Success is a long process that will be measured by the overall dedication you put in. And in any case, IQ is only one part of overall life success. A large part of overall happiness also depends on Emotional Intelligence and grit, both of which are neither taught nor tested on at school.

Start early start small

This may seem like an obvious remark, but it’s important to keep in mind. Starting early, by just doing something small to revise will help you avoid last minutes cramming. Last minute memorizing is neither productive nor helpful for the actual exam, as it increases your risk of not feeling ready nor relaxed on D day. Plus, under stress we are highly likely to forget what we’ve only studied quickly and superficially. So, a few weeks before the exam, set aside some time to start organizing your notes, and laying out all the material you will need to learn. By revising consistently, you’ll have nothing to worry about!

Don’t feel alone in it.

Getting help from friends, family and tutors will not only help you learn but will also make you feel supported, and therefore less overwhelmed. It’s great to be independent and do the majority of your work on your own. But getting a bit of help could go a long way. Especially if you have a particular topic you are struggling with, asking for someone to explain it to you will not only lessen your stress but also increase your chance of getting a 1st. If you want to know more about the benefits of tutoring, The School Run (an education website) lays out all you need to know.

Take time for yourself.

Feeling ready and relaxed during an exam isn’t only about the academic preparation. It’s also about allowing your body and mind to feel ready. This means that putting aside some time for fresh air, exercise, as well as eating healthy, tasty food and getting a good nigh sleep, will all play a crucial part in how ready, relaxed and able to concentrate you are. Some foods that help concentration include: salmon, eggs, blueberries and bananas.

That’s it! Try out these simple steps and see their effects on your next exam. We hope that you will be more relaxed and ready than ever before.

"We are incredibly grateful for Uber Tutors professional and comprehensive services. We are moving from the USA to the UK and our 12 year old needed to learn an entirely different system of education. Tania worked with us and accommodated the 8 hr time difference btw LA and London and found the perfect match for us. Joseph worked with our son for 3 months and achieved all of our goals. We are so grateful that we found this service!"

"Tania's tutor took my daughter from a C in her mock GCSE Maths to an A in the exam! Plus she helped her to get an A in A-Level English - so we are very happy. She was very good at matching the personality of the maths tutor to my daughter, too."

"Tania is always available, very honest and competent. She is always happy to listen and tailor the service to clients needs. The two tutors that we had for most of the time (Henry and Joseph) were amazing and the kids flourished under their support. We would have not passed the exam that they were preparing for without Tania and her team."
