Exam Anxiety: The Pressure to Succeed

I am very proud to present my final project from the MA Broadcast Journalism course at City University. This is the result of months of stress, hard work and determination to tell an important story.

Childline delivered over 3,000 counselling sessions on exam anxiety from 2016-17. An increase of 11% over the previous two years.

The largest increase occurred in 16-18 year olds.

So why is this happening?

Find out in ‘Exam Anxiety: The Pressure to Succeed’ – a 15 minute documentary looking at exam anxiety, why it’s becoming a bigger problem and what can be done about it.
