Help for teens stressed by wait for exam results

Have your say

AS Wearside and County Durham teenagers wait for their exam results, ChildLine is offering support to those feeling anxious or worried.

Head of ChildLine Sue Minto said: “We hear from lots of young people each year who are worried or panicking about their results, so we want to let them know that they are not alone and that ChildLine is here to listen to them.”

Parents, family and trusted adults can help young people who may be worrying by making space and time to ask them how they are feeling about their exam results and talking to them about their concerns.

ChildLine has tips for young people who are feeling stressed about their results, or if they don’t get the results they had hoped for. There is also lots of help, advice and fun things to do on the beat exam stress section of the ChildLine website.
