I was particularly struck by the common sense messages in the article "Top tips for exam preparation", with some really good ideas from looking after yourself to remembering to watch the time. For some, preparing for exams is easy and well-planned, whereas for others it seems a random chaos of notes, open books and sleepless nights. It is, perhaps, fair to say that most find out what works and it does appear that on the day most do as well as they might. And that is no consolation for those who know that they could have done better.
It would also be fair to say that few approach exams without some feeling of anxiety. It's when anxiety begins to take over that it becomes an issue. "How to overcome exam anxiety" provides some useful thoughts; a clear distinction between low and high level anxiety, and some ideas to how to reduce anxiety.
Hypnosis can also provide considerable support by guiding the unconscious mind to take a series of positive steps prior to, at the beginning of and during exams. Positive steps which may allow you to do better, achieve more and get to where you want to be. Positive steps which are the difference between getting the grades to move on to the next stage and having to revise your options.
And with so much pressure these days to do well and succeed, hypnosis is certainly worth exploring, isn't it?
