How can you not be nervous for a test?
What is something you can do to get over test anxiety and to be confident? #testing
Hi Brandi! Great question. I found this happened to me a lot in high school and college. Even now, I still get anxiety when I have a big presentation or deliverable at work. For me, what has helped most is being prepared. If you get nervous for tests, make sure you put in the time and adequately prepare. I feel most confident when I have dedicated enough time to the subject and feel like I have mastered it. I also find that if I have a friend/colleague/classmate that I can run my questions by or practice with in advance of the test/presentation that is very helpful. Remember it's normal to be nervous! With adequate preparation and believing in yourself you will master the tests!
Prepare for the Worst and hope for the best.
Prachi recommends the following next steps:
Important to have positive self-talk before the exam. during the exam- stay focused on your test rather than looking over the shoulders what other people are doing.
Pooja recommends the following next steps:
It's good to be nervous for a test as it means you care about getting good grade. The test anxiety comes when you don't know about the subject and not well prepare for it.
My recommendation is quickly go over the material 2-3 days before the test and note down things that you don't have a good grab off. With those questions, you can reach out to your teacher/professor or classmate to review what you don't know. You will definitely learn from them and the material will be fresh in your mind. Once you have a good understanding of the subject, then your feeling of the test will be easy and you should overcome the anxiety.
From my experience, I always came in 30 minutes early and scanned through those notes. This gave me the confident to take on the test.
Best of luck!
