Eliminate Exam Anxiety:

  • Eliminate negative self talk and replace it with positive thinking.

”If I think I can I can, If I think I can’t I won’t.”

  • If you draw a blank, don’t panic. Breathe and take a few minutes, and it will come back to you.
  • Prepare well for a test by sticking to your study plan.
