Students taking an exam. How did you cope with the stress?


As the exam season looms, one university has come up with an unusual way to help students tackle the stresses they can feel.

The University of Leicester students’ union has ordered hundreds of metres of bubble wrap, which those sitting for tests can pop, as a way to relax.

Puppies will also be brought in to soothe students under pressure. The students claim that the instant gratification of popping bubble wrap is a better relaxant than meditation or yoga.

We want to hear how you relaxed during your exams and what advice you would give to today’s students.
