 Mastering the game of exams

PSI member Dr Malie Coyne has developed an Exam Stress Management Course for A Lust For Life, the successor site to Niall Breslin's (also know as 'Bressie') My1000Hours website. Malie, who is also a member of the PSI's Communications Subgroup, has created the Course to assist young people who may be feeling pressure as exam time approaches.

The first part of Malie's Exam Stress Management Course was released online on Wednesday 20 April, 2016. Among the areas Malie writes about in this first installment are: the positive side of "stress"; how to identify worries and taking action on what can be controlled; and, some advice for parents and adults.

Malie and Niall Breslin were both interviewed by Anton Savage for his morning show on Today FM - click here to listen. 

In the lead up to the Junior and Leaving Certificate exams, Malie will release an article each week, on the A Lust For Life website, aimed at helping students to cope and offering advice to close adults as to how they can support students at this time.
