Ahead of the return of GCSE and A level exams this summer, this 10-page guide offers practical advice for how schools and teaching staff can support their students to prepare effectively for their exams

The free pdf download, available via the button above, will help school staff to support effective exam preparation, including good mental health and wellbeing.

The guide offers top tips for how students can revise effectively, including ‘last-minute’ advice for the night before the examination. We also offer tips for handling exam stress and anxiety – and keeping calm in the exam.

Other themes include how schools can work to overcome the impact of Covid-19 on exam preparation and we signpost to a range of resources and useful links offering further advice and support.

The guide complements a recent episode of the SecEd Podcast which also offered advice for how we can help students to handle the pressure and anxiety that exams can sometimes bring. The podcast aired in March 2022 and can be found here.

This guide was produced with sponsorship from Eduqas and published in April 2022.
