Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. It’s a normal physical and psychological reaction that helps us to avoid dangerous situations and motivates us to overcome everyday challenges. Many different situations can cause anxiety – for example, exams, social situations or public speaking. Many students become anxious around exam time and some have panic attacks. Anxiety can become a problem if it’s more severe, if it lasts for a long time or if it gets in the way of your everyday life, by stopping you doing or enjoying things you normally would. Fortunately there is a wide range of help available.
