All rights reserved. 30 Avoid doom-and gloom talk about the test with fellow students Find out as much about the test as you can to lessen your surprise Arrive a few minutes early so that you won’t feel rushed and so that you will hear any directions the instructor gives RELAX- take deep breaths before you start the test Use positive self-talk. Focus on the test itself, not on your feelings of stress. After you receive the test, jot down slippery facts so you won’t forget them Read all the directions carefully before you begin the test. Make a time plan, budgeting time for each section in accordance with how many points the section is worth. Answer easy questions first. Ignore students who leave early. Realize that comparing yourself negatively with others can undermine your self-confidence If your test anxiety is not relieved by these suggestions, you may need to visit your counseling center
