Winter break is almost here, and while that means that soon you’ll be able to spend your days resting and having fun, it also means that final tests for this semester are right around the corner. 

During this period, it’s natural that you get test anxiety since your grade is largely dependent on your score. However, if you want to learn ways to keep some of those nerves at bay, The Tutoring Center in Middletown has a few tips you can put to good use.

How to Stay Calm Before a Test 

1. Be a good student. If your grade for the whole semester isn’t reliant on that final test, you’ll have an easier time. Turn in your homework, participate and make an effort!

2. Obviously, you need to prepare well for the test. This means studying on a daily basis, practicing, asking questions, getting help if necessary, and understanding the lessons.

3. Breathe in deeply, listen to calming music and learn other relaxation methods that can lower your anxiety.

4. Not having all of the supplies you need for a test can also cause stress and uneasiness. Restock if there’s anything you need but don’t have.

5. Stay healthy. Eat well, rest enough, exercise and don’t engage in bad habits. If you’re tired, hungry or in bad shape, you’ll find that your experience will be less effective.

6. Have confidence in yourself and in your knowledge. Don’t let doubt or the nerves themselves keep you from achieving your academic goals.

7. Understand that you can make mistakes and don’t beat yourself up if you don’t get a perfect score on your test. This way, you’ll feel less pressure.

8. Have a strategy to complete your test in the most efficient manner possible. For example, you can answer the easiest questions first to get them out of the way.
