State your views on the stress levels of students. I find that my DS is very stressed out sometimes. :smile:

my son is stressed even with consistent revision...sometimes when work piles up and due next day. even if homework is due few days later, there is other homework due before that.

Normally when do kids start to get stressed up with school works?

My dd1 (P2) will get stressed up when her teacher 'press' her. Almost all her output will be haywire. Now that the teacher has stopped pressing her, I could see her having great improvements in many areas. But I do wonder if that is due to this or just coincidental to her growing stage.

If he is stressed out, it is self induced.. I already told him to adjust his expectations.

( fail or just pass) , will feel more stress.

if the exams are set too difficult and do not match what is taught, students and parents will be stressed.
