Childline offers support for teenagers stressed about exams
The number of young people receiving counselling from Childline about their A-Level and GCSE results rose 20% this year, with 1 in 4 of all sessions being delivered in August.
New figures from our helpline show there were 1,127 counselling sessions about exam results stress in 2015-16, up from 937 the previous year1. Girls were 5 times more likely to get in touch than boys.
Unsurprisingly the need for support from Childline peaks in August when exam grades are announced.
