- How to cope with the waiting game
Awaiting exam results can be a tense and frustrating time for students, but you should try to relax and consider your options whether you pass or fail.
Most people have a plan if they pass which will usually revolve around being accepted onto higher education courses or ambitious job prospects. It is also a good idea to devise a plan in the case that you do not get the grades you expected.
Try not to think of this as a 'back-up plan' but simply as an alternative plan. This will mean that you are not too disappointed if you do not get the exact grades you wanted and still have something positive to look forward to.
It can be difficult to relax while waiting for your results but try your best to keep active to keep your mind occupied. Physical activities are a great way to combat stress and also release endorphins to keep your mood as elevated as possible. It will also help you to get a good night's sleep rather than lying awake worrying about your results.
Try to socialize with a range of people rather than just other students who are also worrying about results. This will only make you think about it more as it is likely to be a topic that will frequently come up in conversation.
