Exam anxiety is real. For many students, the experience of preparing for and taking high pressure exams, such as GCSEs, is fraught with anxiety. This has only worsened following the 2014 reforms to GCSEs and for some, it can have a lasting impact both academically and emotionally. As more and more students ask for help in order to cope, this webinar will help senior leaders, academic heads and wellbeing leads to understand the reasons why. Presenting findings from a 16-year programme of research, this webinar will look at the origins of exam anxiety, how prevalent it is and the in-house prevention methods schools can use to help manage it effectively.
