But for some reason my finals at university were the least stressful exams I have ever done. By then, I had somehow learned how to look after myself during exam period. And if I can stay calm, so can you. Here's my advice...
History has been part of school curriculums for as long as anyone can remember. It conjures up images of people pouring over books and manuscripts in dimly lit rooms. However, in recent years this school staple has graduated to both the small and big screens.
To keep up with the world as it stands in 2015, students must have a broader historical education than they have ever had before, with a much greater focus on understanding the world around them right now.
It's important to take frequent breaks during your revision session. The brain is a muscle (not factually correct) that gets tired like any other muscles (do hearts get tired?). In order for a break to be effective, you must fully remove yourself from your working mindset. Dig a hole in the garden or annoy your sister a bit. Just keep the line between work and play clearly defined.
With hope, the Government's publication of the Savile reports will emphasise the importance - to children, adults working with children and those who may have suffered abuse in the past - of both listening and speaking out. No one should face the terrors of abuse alone.
For some students the retention of subject information is good throughout the year, and therefore they won't need to revise for more than a couple of hours each day. However, there are those that struggle either because they haven't applied themselves effectively throughout the year or because they genuinely find learning harder than other students.
I would like my children to have an understanding of different religious worldviews, and in turn, I want other kids of all faiths to understand theirs, and how it shapes the choices and decisions they make in life.
We're calling on politicians to think before they leap. City & Guilds wants to see long-term planning instead of short-term headline grabbing. If politicians can't learn from mistakes and leave policies in place long enough to make a difference, they risk another three decades of getting caught in the tube doors.
At GCSE, I studied Steinbeck and Priestley. My first year at A-Level, I studied Browning, Auden, Fitzgerald and Hosseini. It was only in the second year that I studied Carter and Bronte as well as Marlowe. Work by female authors took up less than a third of my secondary education space - and unequal gender representation is set to increase.
A sticking plaster needs to be applied to significant cuts in university funding by subsidising languages at University level: essentially helping those departments stay afloat at a difficult time. If that happens then UK businesses may still have a chance when it comes to keeping up with the ambitious BRIC countries. If not, then the UK economy may never fully recover.
