    Today we’re going to talk about a sensitive subject: test anxiety If you have test anxiety, you may know class material very well, and still make poor grades This can be stressful, frustrating, and a debilitating cycle But there is good news – there are many ways you can learn to deal with your test anxiety We’re going to walk through those steps today: building your confidence, preparing for the exam, taking the exam, relaxing, and reviewing what works for you So how do you deal with your anxiety? Remember, the goal is not to get rid of all anxiety Some anxiety is healthy – it motivates you to study and work harder It is when anxiety interferes with your performance that is becomes unhealthy Let’s talk about some ways to overcome unhealthy anxiety step-by-step The first thing to do is build your confidence Develop good study habits and manage your time Organize your class material in small chunks and don’t cram for exams at the last minute If you learn the material clearly and at your own pace, you will diminish a lot of anxiety Try to think of the outside pressures that are causing you anxiety – Do you fear failure? Are you competing against a classmate? Finally, learn from your past performance what works well for you and what does not Next, prepare for your exam You will be more confident if you learn the material well Before you take the test, choose a comfortable, non-distracting location and make sure to give yourself enough time. You may want to get ready to take the test a little early. Don’t cram at the last minute, and try to stay relaxed Remember, if you exercise regularly, get enough sleep, and eat a meal or snack before the test, you will feel much better During the test, first read the directions carefully. You don’t want to lose points or backtrack because you missed a part of the question. Then budget your time for each part of the exam so you will be able to complete it. If you get stuck on a multiple choice question, skip it and come back to it later If your mind goes blank on an essay exam, just pick a question and start writing – it will jog your memory Try not to panic You may want to take a short break or change positions to stay relaxed Use relaxation techniques to remain calm Take deep breaths, and don’t get caught up thinking about your fear Instead, be positive – think about past successes and how you will do well on your exam Expect that some anxiety is normal, but don’t let extreme anxiety become a habit that drags you down again and again After the test, review how you did dealing with your anxiety Did any of these strategies work well for you? Did some of them not work? Now give yourself a pat on the back – even small improvements are big victories!
