Message from Sam...
  Ask Sam

Exams can be a really stressful time of the year and it can seem like everything is getting on top of you. I’m really interested in hearing what exams are like for you and how you’ve been coping with the pressure around revising.

Remember that although I read every single letter, I can only respond to a few. If you need to be sure you’ll get a response then it’s best to talk to one of our counsellors, although it’s okay to send me a letter as well if you want.

Take care,

Sam
