Nervous/tense before and during exams

Showing 1 to 10 of 10

I always get nervous before/during my AS exams, I find it hard to relax and I feel it affects my overall grade. Is there anyone who feels the same? If so is there any advice to aid this at all?

Yeh feel like that all the time!!!

 if ur nervous before or during an exam it can cause ur brain to like shut down, which aint exactly great... u need to relax before u go in, like work on ur breathing and stuff, always works... Also if u burn some oils like lavender or vanilla when revisin, then put a few drops of that oil onto a tissue and take it into an exam, it usually helps you remember stuff, as well as calm u down. Hope it helps :)

I always get so nervous
it makes it worse when people always ask what you wrote for certain answers, then it panics me when i haven't written the same :/
 I find it helps just to like, tell myself that i will be fine & that i know i can do it and stuff (:

I know how you feel! I've actually been physically sick aswel with constant headache,

but the thing which has put me at rest sorta is that those who get nervous, get stressed or whatever are the ones who do well. Those who couldn't give a toss tend to get a grade on which they could have got better. If you revise well, drink alot(i drink milk alot;P) and just take a break every now and then it shouldn't be 'as bad':}

So yeah, GOOD LUCK! :)

Something that's supposed to work is tense all your muscles and release them one by one. As you release them imagine the stress and nerves being released with them.
