A Guide to Surviving Exam Stress

Exam time is well and truly upon us. And along with it comes the inevitable nail biting, stress and worry. Feeling anxious about your exams is completely normal, but rest assured there are some simple things you can do to make sure you perform to your best on the day. 1.
