Could do with a few phrases to use. Ds driving me slightly batty as he's worrying about an exam, need to put him at ease so that he sleeps instead of worrying!

Is it one particular exam? Has he looked at previous papers? What exactly is he worrying about? By getting him to talk about exactly what is worrying him you could address his particular concerns.

I am normally able to say this:
You've worked really hard so I'm already happy. Now all you can do is go in and do your best.

Think its the 'unknown' theres only past papers for some bits of it (entrance exam) and he wants to do really well. Thanks, the being proud is a useful one.
