As students our heads become filled with coursework, revision, exam stress and deadlines. Whilst all of these things are important sometimes they can make us lose sight of the best pleasures in life. We thought we’d share with you some incredibly important things to help you put everything into perspective.
Without further ado, here’s your reminder of things more important than a grade:
Your dedication will always shine brighter than a number.
If you care about what you are learning you’ll be able to talk about it passionately. As a result you’ll be able to share more knowledge, understanding and interest than in any exam.
These are people will love and support you through anything. The time you get to enjoy together is invaluable.
A healthy body makes a healthy mind. When exam stress starts up our body’s are put under pressure and we can suffer as a consequence. In order to avoid this, you need to prioritise drinking enough water and eating plenty of healthy, regular meals each and every day. A quick spurt of exercise also really improves your physical health whilst giving you a boost of brain power.
Last but not least, your happiness is more important than any exam or career. At the end of the day we all work hard to be able to go and enjoy life. It’s not always easy to take care of our mental health but forming a good supportive network of family, friends or professionals can make a huge difference.
