I got really stressed during exams just because I felt like I knew that I wasn't going to do too well.

Some ways these young people deal with exam stress:

  • Eat some food or drink some water.

  • Go outside and take a walk.

  • Do something you love, like riding a skateboard.

  • Physically disrupt what you're doing, for example, by taking a shower, so you can return with a clear head.
