exams revision

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 6:00am 28th April 2016. (Updated at 5:18pm 28th April 2016)

Over 50 per cent of young people receiving counselling sessions have exam concerns.

That is as exams are looming for Surrey and Hampshire schools and colleges next month.

In 2014-15 ChildLine carried out 3,772 counselling sessions with young people who had concerns about exams.

Rosanne Pearson is a Senior Supervisor at Childline: "We do get very young children worried about their SATs in primary schools.

"Probably the majority of calls are about GCSEs and A-Levels.

"Most of the calls are around worries about exams coming up - but then after the exams we do get quite a lot of calls worried about the results."

55% of these counselling sessions were with young people who were stressed about their forthcoming exams.

25% of the counselling sessions were with young people who had completed their exams and were concerned about the results they would achieve.

Rosanne added: "Young people are particularly worried about the revision itself, others about their grades - will they make the grades for what they want to do, will they fail...

"Some are just really worried about the exam setting itself, and how they are going to cope."
