The pressure to perform well, fear of failure, and the sheer volume of information to study can lead to overwhelming feelings of anxiety and stress. It's important to recognize that experiencing stress during exams is normal, but it's essential to find effective ways of managing it to ensure both academic success and mental well-being.
