We are so sorry to hear that you are worried about your upcoming Christmas exams, but know that you are not alone, we hear you. Having a study plan can help, creating a weekly planner for the evenings can help. Using a checklist to tick off each subject as you go through them, can help too. Think about a quiet space you can go to study, your school may have after school study/homework hubs, these can be a good space where you don’t get distracted. Your local library may also have a quiet space for you to study.  Have all materials on hand; using highlighters can help to note key terms and phrases from your textbooks or notes.
