Believe in yourself. You wouldn't have been given a place on the course if you didn't have the ability to do it. Therefore, if you prepare for the exams properly you should do fine, meaning that there is no need to worry excessively. Don't try to be perfect. It's great to succeed and reach for the stars. But keep things in perspective. If you think that "anything less than A+ means I've failed" then you are creating mountains of unnecessary stress for yourself. Aim to do your best but recognize that none of us can be perfect all of the time. Take steps to overcome problems. If you find you don't understand some of your course or subject material, getting stressed out won't help. Instead, take action to address the problem directly by seeing your course tutor or teacher or getting help from your class mates. Don't keep things bottled up. Confiding in someone you trust and who will be supportive is a great way of alleviating stress and worry. Keep things in perspective. The exams might seem like the most crucial thing right now, but in the grander scheme of your whole life, they are only a small part.The quickest and most effective way of eliminating feelings of stress and panic is to close your eyes and take several long, slow deep breaths. Breathing in this way calms your whole nervous system. Simultaneously you could give yourself some mental pep-talk by mentally repeating "I am calm and relaxed" or "I know I will do fine".
