(February 1, 2016) – No matter what age you are, receiving test results can cause a lot of anxiety! So one school decided to ease students’ fears by attaching an inspiring letter to their exam scores.

Students in Northern Ireland recently took the transfer test. This standardized test determines which high school a student will be admitted to. Much like the SATs, students stress out about taking this test.

So Harmony Hill Primary School enclosed the following letter with the students’ results.
