There’s nothing for it, if you’re at school or college there’s always coursework and exams. So what’s the best way to tackle them? Here are some tips:

  • Stop procrastinating! If you get down to it early, it doesn’t become so overwhelming. It also keeps teachers and parents off your back.
  • Find a mentor or learning buddy.
  • Take a break! We work better if we build in regular short breaks.
  • Reward yourself.
  • Make a plan – and stick to it.
  • Create a distraction-free space.
  • Keep calm.
