Stress and anxiety about exams can have a big impact on young people's mental health. It can trigger anxiety attacks, depression, tearfulness and even eating disorders. All this can ultimately affect exam performance. In some cases it can lead to self-harm and suicidal feelings.
I didn't want the next generation of young people to go through the same thing as me. I wanted to give them access to practical technology skills early, so they could start building, designing and making stuff as soon as possible, teaching them through hands on projects and engaging problems that got them thinking creatively.
These people are pseudo-Left and they have made their choice. But now is not the time for the true liberal-left to go into hiding. We must not be afraid to stand up for our principles and challenge the conformism of the "New Politics".
Will could have lived a great life; he had the support of his family, someone who loved him, and enough money to experience all he wanted. But it wasn't enough in the eyes of the author and filmmakers - because Will is disabled.
When you graduate, taking your first steps out of College or University into the big, bad world is, how to put it...
This problem will continue to persist with the growing threat of future fee hikes, pushing more students into further debt and undoubtedly leading more students into reconsidering attending their graduation ceremony altogether.
The papers are full of an angry letter from recent graduate Simon Crowther to his MP, which has been shared over 20,000 times, complaining about retrospective hikes to student loan interest... The content of the letter isn't technically correct, and shows a continued general misunderstanding of how student finance works, that could mislead some.
Last week I received an invitation to an event to celebrate an anniversary. It is 150 years since the Women's Suffrage Committee, formed by Barbara Bodichon, collected 1500 signatures on a petition for women's suffrage in 1866. This was presented to the House of Commons by John Stuart Mill, the philosopher, political economist and Member of Parliament.
Six months ago, I lost my job. Sitting in an office with the CEO and Founder of the company I'd been working for, I heard the words no graduate wants to hear: "We're sorry, but we can't keep you on".
Coming out as gay was probably one of the biggest challenges I have faced in my life. I was frightened and it made me feel so ashamed, for being just...me. But now, I'm not scared. The word 'gay', in secondary school was used often; in the classroom, lunchtime and even within my own circle of friends. It would be used jokingly, but every time I heard the word, I just sunk lower in my seat.
There should be more emphasis on chivalry for the sake of common decency, not for reasons relating to the patriarchy or a woman's 'fragility'. Equally, neither individual women nor society should expect men to foot the bill. So, chivalry certainly isn't dead, but that doesn't mean that women can't open doors for themselves.
Today, those of us that care about the future of education, care about the ethos that our universities run under and care about justice, need to join our lecturers on the picket line. Today, let's jointly raise our voices and demonstrate where the true power lies on our campuses.
It can become incredibly frustrating considering that these dogs are given to people like myself to enhance our quality of life and enable us to become more mobile. When these access denials occur our mobility is prevented and our freedom of movement is hindered.
There is a void that must be filled in British politics when it comes to climate change. Aside from the many number of reasons to take action based on humanitarian grounds, Corbyn is a politician in need of a stronger and more unified party. Forming a powerful strategy to tackle this crisis would help him achieve this.
