In just a few weeks, thousands of students across Tasmania will participate in one of the most stressful tasks of the year – exams.

High school, college and university students are each preparing in their own ways to tackle the important tests. 

Newstead College year 12 student Dominic VanWinden is hoping to study medicine at university next year and will sit maths, chemistry and biology exams. 

“I normally go through all the material that we’ve studied throughout the year and do lots of practice exams,” Dominic said. 

Assistant principal Mike Flanagan said students who were feeling stressed should reach out to teachers for help.

“Students need good balance – enough sleep, exercise and social activities,” he said.
