These top tips for coping with exam stress have been written by the Mental Health Foundation's Young Leaders - young people who have recently been through GCSEs and A-levels themselves.

These simple and accessible tips are featured on separate 'postcards' which can be stuck into books or onto pinboards and feature space for students to make their own notes. Each tip also features a QR code that can be scanned for further resources or information.
