The tips listed below are ways to make you feel easy while writing a test, and they might be useless if you didn’t prepare accurately for the test.
Arrive to Class or test hall Early
For no reason should you arrive late for a test, that is the worst thing that can happen. Not only do you lose valuable time, but you will probably be more stressed out. ensure you arrive to class extra early so that you can sit down and relax. Don’t start cramming test notes or talking to other students, just close your eyes and take a mental vacation, your mind needs it.
Take a Deep Breath
After the teacher passes out the test, just let the test sit on your desk for a short while . Close your eyes and take some deep breaths. Everyone else will be frantically working on the test, but you should relax your mind before the exam. You want your mind to be fully relaxed when you look at the exam or test paper.
Scan the Test
After a brief moment of relaxation, take a moment to scan through the whole test. There will be questions you immediately know the answers to. After you finish scanning, start going through the test only answering those questions you can answer quickly. If you know it, answer and move on. If you need some time to answer, then move to the next question. The key is to answer what you know right away. By doing this, you will feel more confident that you are getting a bunch of questions answered before anyone else. You then have the remaining test time to work on the more difficult questions.
Take a Break and Stretch
Make sure to take several stretch breaks during the test but don’t be a distraction or you could be send out of the clsss. Make it point to put your pen or pencil down so that you can close your eyes and relax. Stretch out your arms and legs if possible. A brief mental break will be a nice reward to your body.
