Childline Aberdeen base manager Leanne Ferries said: “Taking exams places a lot of pressure on young people.
“Worryingly, for some these feelings can act as a trigger to them developing mental health issues.
“It’s important that family, friends and teachers are there to support children and teenagers during this stressful time, listening to them and keeping them calm and focused so they can properly prepare for the challenges to come.”
