Exam advice

The Mind Set is a group of student coaches from a variety of academic and diverse backgrounds, who have all recently taken their exams and understand the pressures involved.

In a series of short films the students offer practical advice on topics such as How to get started and How to plan your revision through to mental wellbeing advice such as How to stay motivated and How to believe in yourself.

The films are accompanied by tips written by our team of experts including a psychologist who specialises in working with teenagers, a GP, a deputy head teacher and educational consultants all with first- hand experience of helping students through this stressful time in their lives. Further advice is also available from YoungMinds, National Citizen Service and Childline.
