For this week’s blog, I put together a quick video with 4 tips for helping students approach their exams with less anxiety & more confidence.
I hope you enjoy it!
Summary of tips:
- Focus on the outcome you want, not what you don’t want.
- Take 10 minutes before a test to write out your feelings.
- 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.
- 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?
