Although it is very common to experience anxiety during exam period, a recent study has shown that anxiety could be associated with higher marks if the working memory is good as anxiety motivates kids to work more. Clearly, anxiety could have a negative effect on marks when the child is having difficulty memorising or remembering materials. Therapists, specialised in working with kids and teenagers, can help them both reduce their anxiety and improve their memory.
Don’t wait until the exam period! Book an appointment with a therapist now if your child is having memory problems or is known as an anxious kid at school.
