Help Your Child Avoid Exam Burnout This Summer

Exam time is almost upon us. This can be an extremely stressful time for both parents and children alike. Over recent years, a syndrome known as ‘exam burnout’ has become more and more common in the US. Sufferers experience exhaustion, an inability to retain information and a lack of motivation. It is brought on by high levels of stress and feelings of panic and hopelessness. In this article, The Tutoring Center of St John’s Creek would like to share our tops tips to help your child avoid exam burnout this summer.

Study SMART

Break subjects down into topics, and set a few SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-Limited) goals for each topic. This will help your child feel confident and not become overwhelmed by their workload.

Make a Study Timetable

It’s essential that your child also feels that they are allowed to relax and unwind during this stressful period. A study schedule helps them to know when they should study and when they can relax so that they don’t feel guilty about taking some downtime.

Eat Well, Exercise, Sleep Well

Your child’s lifestyle should always be a priority as a parent, but particularly during exams. Provide nutritious food and make sure that they exercise and sleep well to reduce stress levels. If your child is spending too many nights studying and not sleeping, it can negatively affect their ability to retain information.
