Sit more exams to beat stress Schools minister Nick Gibb tells GCSE pupils

 

 

Children should sit more exams so that they find them less stressful by the time they take their GCSEs, the schools minister said yesterday.

Nick Gibb blamed the internet and social media, rather than the pressure of assessments, for fuelling severe anxiety among pupils. He told MPs: “Exam pressures have always been there, and the way to deal with exam pressure is to make sure that young people have taken exams earlier on in their school career -at the end of Year 7 [when pupils are aged 12], Year 8, and so on  -so they are used to taking exams.”
