GCSE results day is coming up very soon and it’s bound to be a time of anxiety for both students and parents as you wait to see how well you’ve done.
It’s totally normal to feel nervous in the run up to results day, even if you felt like your exams went well. The important thing to remember is that the exams are already done and there is nothing that can change your results now. Getting stressed or losing sleep in the run up to results day will only make you feel worse.
It also helps to remember that everyone is in the same boat as you and your friends are probably feeling just as nervous, even if they don’t show it.
Try to keep yourself busy and distracted to stop yourself from turning into a nervous wreck before you get your results. Remember that you’ve already done the work and now is the time for rest and relaxation before it’s time to head back to school or college and start further studies.
Feeling prepared is another good way to help deal with your nerves, so if you are worried that your grades might not be good enough, you can do a little research into options available to you.
