Looking after yourself during your GCSEs - A guide for pupils

White curve

This guide is part of a series about taking an emotionally healthy approach to GCSEs. This is the pupil guide, and the others are for teachers and parents and carers. The guides are packed with practical tips and ideas to support young people before, during and after exam time. Although written in reference to GCSEs, the content can be applied to any exam.
