Dealing with Exam Stress

Everyone gets stressed about exams and there are lots of places you can go to for help and advice. It is natural that you will be a little nervous, but if your anxiety is making your life difficult you MUST speak to someone – a friend, a member of your family, someone at school. Every member of staff at SSA is there for you and will be happy to listen to your concerns and worries. Don’t keep them a secret!

You can also find support and advice online via the following platforms:

Examination Boards

All external or public exams that students sit at school are regulated by JCQ and students are expected to follow strict behaviour guidelines. Students must:

  • know their candidate number
  • make sure they attend all exams they are entered for
  • follow the rules as explained to them by the staff leading their exams
  • read the SSA Exam Instructions and Information Leaflet
