Teenager On Her BedSummary of tips:

  1. Focus on the outcome you want, not what you don’t want.
  2. Take 10 minutes before a test to write out your feelings.
  3. Remember other times in the past when you’ve worked hard and come out successful.  Consider using the same “lucky” rituals to get yourself in a similar mindset before your exam.
  4. It’s normal to feel “butterflies” in your stomach before a big test.  This doesn’t mean you’re unprepared, it just means you’re excited about the test.  These butterflies can actually help you to pay attention & do better on your exams.

Which of these strategies do you think would work best for helping your teen approach exams with confidence & excitement?
