Sitting the Exam: Managing Stress
Exams are an intense and stressful time for most students. They affect families and schools. The culture and expectations surrounding exams doesn’t make it easy either. Hence, how we prepare for exams and respond to stress is a key consideration. Facilitated by Dr. Fidelma Healy Eames, PhD, author of ‘Switching on for Learning: A Student Guide to Exam and Career Success’, this on-point webinar ‘Sitting the Exam: Managing Stress’ is aimed at supporting students facing exams to have a successful experience. It is particularly useful for teachers and parents as they endeavour to prepare and support their students in the lead-up to and during the exam period.
The ‘Sitting the Exam & Managing Stress’ webinar is designed to enable students to:
- Get into the right frame of mind where they feel a greater sense of control and personal efficacy;
- Become familiar with a range of practical strategies to support them with their preparation for the countdown to exams and the day of the exam, including useful exam techniques with which to approach exam papers.
- Become aware of helpful strategies to help them deal with and relieve stress in their lives, most especially during highly intense times like the exam period. This section of the webinar includes insightful and practical contributions from Richard Brennan (Alexander Technique master) and Cecile Jacquot (hypnotherapist).
