Test Taking Anxiety Strategies - 2 Simple Anti-Anxiety Tips for Test Day

Be it the mid-terms or final exams, test taking anxiety is one of the most stressful things you encounter as a student.

Here are 2 simple tips to overcome, or at least deal with fear and panic, till the exam is over:

#1. Stop everything and breathe deeply
  • If you are experiencing any kind of test related anxiety, stop doing everything for a while and just concentrate on your breathing.
  • Take 20 deep breaths through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Imagine (and feel) with each exhalation that your anxiety and sense of panic is being released.
#2. Manage your time intelligently on the test day
  • Make sure you get enough sleep on the night before the test. On the day of the test, have a light breakfast (avoid caffeine and carbohydrates) and arrive 20-30 minutes early before the exam begins.
  • As soon as you get your test paper, skim through the whole of it and mentally allot the maximum time you are willing to spend on each section. This is important to ensure that you complete the test in time.
