Dealing with exams, assignments, assessments results

Getting your exams, assignments and assessments results especially for big tasks like the ones at the end of term is a stressful experience. It can be really devastating if your marks are not what you wanted, or you feel like you haven't done well enough to live up to expectations – whether they're yours, your family's or someone else's.

How results can affect you

Whether you're waiting for results, or you've already got them, you could experience any of the following as part of 'exam panic':

  • Disappointment or depression
  • Stress or anxiety 
  • Happiness or excitement
  • Guilt, confusion or sadness 
  • Illness 
  • Numbness 
  • Anger.
