Test Anxiety
How do you feel you take an important exam? Are you
relaxed, although a little nervous, and able to
concentrate on the test-questions? Or do you find your
stomach clenches, your palms sweat, and/or you forget
everything you knew before you entered the building?
Sometimes well-prepared people receive low scores on
examinations because of test anxiety. If this has been
your experience, please explore the pages and links at
the left of this page.
Test anxiety can be controlled; we hope one of these
methods will work for you.
