On good advice during the exam period

Season 3, Episode 28,   Jun 01, 2022, 01:49 PM

If there’s one thing more stressful than revision for students – and us parents – then it’s the actual exam period. Many of us will feel like life is on a knife edge not knowing what to do for the best. Just how can we move past the fluctuating moods and bouts of anxiety, to try and make this a productive period? 

The exam season has started in earnest – or should that be in anger?!  It’s an important and tricky time to navigate. All three seasons of our podcast have been hopefully building to this moment. With episodes ranging from coping with stress, through to the importance of a good diet. In response to some of the common questions The Study Buddy gets asked, I've cherry-picked a few gems from the last 87 episodes to help.

 In this episode we cover: 

  • My child doesn't seem to care at all.
  • My teen wants only 8s and 9s 
  • Where is the pressure coming from and should we tackle that?
  • How can I help my child when it gets too much? 
  • Should we be preparing our child for the worst, just in case?
  • Is it too late now to be doing anything?
  • It’s exam day, what should they eat?
In this third season of the podcast, Nathan - founder of The Study Buddy - will be talking to parents, students and teachers about GCSE and A Level exams in 2022. Sharing these real-life experiences will confirm we're not alone and should also provide plenty of advice and tips when it comes to supporting our own teens.
