How can you help your child through their exams?

We all know that exam periods can be just as stressful for loving parents as they are for their frazzled children so we've popped together some handy hints to try and make the period a little bit easier for everyone.

 

parent and child exam

  • Help you child create a revision timetable Download ours here (pdf)

  • Find a quiet place to devote to you child's study space.

  • Help them get a good supply of stationary together, such a postcard size note pages and coloured pens or highlighters to make studying more interesting.

  • Make sure they are taking regular breaks - you could plan things to do in the longer breaks, such as a walk to the shops or park, visiting family and friends, or doing exercise such as a game of their favourite sport.

  • Offer to listen to them read back their notes, test them, or time them doing a past exam paper, then mark it together.

  • Have plenty of snacks on hand - brown pasta, granary bread, nuts and fish are all good brain boosting foods.

  • Try and create a calm atmosphere around the family home for them.

  • Discourage them from staying up late, especially the night before an exam. 

  • Prepare a good breakfast on exam day - you can see our exam day menu here.
