 Exam period is a stressful time for young people, but unfortunately its an inevitable part of their academic journey. 

Students will need full support from their parents, including patience and lots of encouragement, to help alleviate some of the pressure of exams.

 So, if you’re wondering how you can help, here are some tips from an A Level collegeYour attitude during exam period is crucial; you’ll need to act as a calming force in your child’s life whilst they’re going through this challenging time. Essentially, you’ll need to try and lift their spirits. Demonstrate an optimistic approach towards your child’s education by praising them for working hard and using positive terminology when speaking about their exams. 

Encourage them to take regular breaks from revision so that they don’t overdo and keep them well-stocked with healthy snacks that they can nibble on whilst they’re studying.


It might also help your child if you assist them with creating some sort of revision schedule prior to exam period, so they know what they should be working on and when. 

Structured revision will ensure they are working on the right topics at the right times, so that they don’t end up studying something they’re already fantastic at or cramming last minute for topics they’ve forgotten. Add in some extra time for the areas that your child might be struggling with. You might also want to consider hiring a private tutor to help with those subjects on a temporary basis.


Make sure your child has an appropriate space to do there studying. It should be well-lit, quiet and free from distractions. What’s more, it should be equipped with all of the relevant books and stationery so that your child doesn’t have to waste valuable revision time searching for a ruler or a missing book. 

Contact your child’s teachers if you are looking for some ideas on revision guides or other books that might help your child prepare for their exams.
