The Mind Set
The Mind Set is the UK’s first national peer-to-peer coaching network for GCSE and National students. It’s a bold campaign that features 12 student coaches from a variety of academic and diverse backgrounds. They have all recently taken their exams and understand the pressures involved. In a series of short clips, they offer practical and well-being advice on how to get through the stressful exam period.
In these clips, the Mind Set team cover a range of practical advice from how to get started with revision and tips for using past papers, to physical and mental well-being advice, such as how to stay motivated and how to keep calm. The clips are also supported by interactive infographics written by experts in the field, including a GP, a psychologist, a Mindfulness expert and an educational consultant, who has been researching exam stress for the past decade.
If you teach students who are embarking on their revision and want practical advice from the Mind Set team, please share our website with them, where they can access all of this invaluable content. Alternatively, you could watch the clips as part of a lesson, if you want to use them as a basis for further advice or discussion.
