Taking the Stress out of Exams

Especially for PDA student members who have exams coming up, the PDA is hosting a ‘Taking the Stress out of Exams’ course as part of the PDA’s commitment to supporting pharmacy students.

Preparing for examinations can be extremely stressful. In order to approach exams in a positive and healthy way, it is important for students to be aware of two key elements:

  • Why they are taking exams in relation to their career journey in pharmacy?
  • Do they have some control over the process?

PDA Education now has a ‘Taking the Stress out of Exams’ course available to PDA student members which aims to help them to learn to spot the signs of excessive stress and understand what can trigger feelings of stress. PDA student members will also get the opportunity to explore some strategies that can help in staying calm and exam fit.
