  • Chilling out – Meet up with friends do something relaxing like going for walks, the cinema or anything you and your friends enjoy doing.
  • Say goodbye – Feel good! Throw away notes and books on the exam you’ve taken, This will help you to visualise that the task is done, and no longer needs to be worried about! Although, we don’t advise you take this step until you know your result!
