Tips for Reducing Exam and Assessment Stress

John Adams, author of Dad Blog UK, explores ways to reduce exam and assessment stress during GCSE and A-Level season.

May marks the start of GCSE and A-Level exam season in the UK, but this year it’s going to look a bit different for students due to disruptions caused by COVID-19.

Instead of simply sitting exams, students will be assessed and graded by teachers, with each school taking a slightly different approach. This has led to uncertainty, stress and anxiety for many students - and even parents.

In his latest video, John Adams, author of Dad Blog UK, dad-of-two and contributor to Microban’s The Cleaner Home, outlines some ways to reduce exam and assessment stress. John references advice from leading experts including youth mental health expert, Natasha Devon MBE and parenting expert and author of The Work Parent Switch, Anita Cleare.
