TikTok has always been a place that inspires creativity and brings joy. Every day we are blown away by the inspirational, motivational and educational content that our community creates.
As well as being a place where people come to be entertained, TikTok has become a helpful and creative way for people to teach and learn. Learning and education content is extremely popular on TikTok, with #StudyTok having been viewed more than 4 billion times.
Exam season can be a uniquely stressful time for many and with the return of in-person exams for the first time in two years, students will understandably be feeling the nerves and pressure.
To help our community feel prepared, we are launching a new campaign in partnership with youth charity The Mix which may help to ease some of the worries, fears and stress around their studies.
Together, we are launching the hashtag challenge #Exams and inviting TikTokers to share their top tips and tricks with anyone gearing up for their exams. Whether it's students taking their GCSEs for the first time, right through to those sitting their University finals, our aim is to help people connect and share personal experiences around revision habits, wellness breaks, exam preparation and more.
To kickstart the campaign, The Mix will be posting a series of videos featuring their best advice. Here's a snapshot of what's to come:
- Effective vs. Non-effective study habits
- Morning routine on exam day
- Mental health and exam expectations
Check out more tips for how to prepare for exams on The Mix's new TikTok - @TheMixUK.
Melissa McFarlane, Head of Content Programming, said "We're so happy to be partnering with The Mix and bringing its essential services to the young people on our platform. We know that exam season can be a stressful time, so we are excited to see our community come together to support each other. From first time nerves to exam veterans, to those of us whose study days are behind us, we can't wait to hear your test top tips!"
Zoe Bailie, Deputy CEO & Chief Development Officer at The Mix added "Young people tell us time and time again about the pressures of the exam period, and so we're thrilled to be partnering with TikTok to launch a hashtag challenge to lift some of these fears. We hope that through #Exams, we can show young people that they aren't alone and provide them with the tips and tools they need to protect their wellbeing during this important time."
