Exam Stress

You want to know how to deal with the anxiety and stress of exams.

Acknowledge that being stressed is normal. It’s how you respond to stress that makes all the difference. Alter your thinking from “being afraid” to “being excited.” For example, swap “I’m afraid of not passing” with “I’m excited to do my best.”

Turn to deep breathing to calm yourself if you get stressed during an exam. It’s a good idea to give your brain a rest the day before an exam. Simply give the material a quick and final review. Be sure to double check your answers when taking an exam. Glance away, shift your attention, and then recheck.
