Looking after yourself during exams

  • Get plenty of sleep. Go to bed at the same time every night. You’ll be able to stay out late as much as you like when exams are over.
  • Eat properly. Eating a balanced diet with plenty of vitamins will make you more alert and positive. Now, more than ever, your five-a-day is crucial.
  • Keep moving. Exercise can train your brain, like a good diet, regular exercise will make you more alert and positive.
  • Don’t use your phone just before you go to sleep. To get the right kind of sleep, you need to clear your mind and wind down first.
