CHILDLINE has reminded teenagers that help is available if they feel anxious or worried about exams.

Last year the charity handled 2,433 counselling sessions from children and young people concerned about exam pressure across the UK.

Christine Mellor, area manager for the North West, said: "The exam period can be very stressful. We hear from lots of young people each year who are worried or panicking about their exams and revision.

“This can affect them in a variety of ways and can leave them unable to eat or sleep normally. We want them to know that they are not alone.”
