With exams right around the corner, students are starting to feel the pressure.
At the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), students can find resources to alleviate some of their fear right on campus.
Almost 39 percent of Canada’s post secondary students say stress is affecting their performance in school.
Manager of the learning services department at SAIT, Shan Robertson says a lot of students have been working with academic coaches to give them more effective strategies.
An academic coach is able to look at a students exam schedule and help figure out when to study for each one.
Although most students have already experienced testing before, the art of studying isn’t a simple one.
“This is my second year and I’m better than I was in my first year, but I still need help being perfect at it.”

In the coming weeks, students at SAIT will be able to take part in De-Stress Fest right on campus.
