Plan “B” for Test Anxiety

One of the best ways to deal with test anxiety?  Always have a “Plan B.”  That’s according to a new article published in PYCHOLOGY TODAY .  In fact, this is not a new concept.  Over the years, more than 100 studies have shown that planning things out in advance, including what you’ll do in a worst case scenario, helps relieve stress in multiple situations.

So imagine the scene:  You’re preparing for that crucial exam, like a College Entrance Exam, Nursing Entrance Exam or High School Entrance Exam.  Or maybe a Teacher Certification exam.  A lot is riding on this exam and you absolutely have to pass.  But you know that you’re a terrible test-taker. You know that something always seems to go wrong to make you mess up on the exam.  This is a condition beyond regular test anxiety; it is what psychologists term “high test anxiety,” a severe form of performance anxiety.

    I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well.
