Do You Have Examophobia?

When you think about an upcoming exam, do you:

  • Get butterflies in your stomach? Yes or No
  • Get sweaty palms? Yes or No
  • Does your heartbeat faster? Yes or No
  • Worry if you will be able to answer all the questions? Yes or No
  • Stress about your mind going blank during the exam? Yes or No
  • Even worse, do you focus on what will happen if you fail? Yes or No

If you said YES to any of these questions then you are NORMAL, almost every student feels nervous before an exam. The good news is that there are so many things you can do to help you succeed during exam time.

You need to understand the course material before you can study it.
This means that you will need to attend all classes and if you don't understand something you should ask the professor for extra help. 

check box   

Complete all course readings and compile all notes from class, textbooks, guests speakers, videos, etc.
If you are missing notes - ask your classmates or make an appointment with the professor.

Get the exam details - some instructors will provide you with a review sheet, if not ask your instructor to provide the class details about the exam:
What chapters will be covered?
How many questions will be on the exam?
What types of questions will be included?

Set up a study schedule - it is best to start studying at least 3 weeks in advance. Ensure you add time to study in your daily routine.

check box

Keep yourself organized and make a checklist of the key topic areas and textbook chapters that need to be covered - cross them off the list as you study.

check box

Find a good place to study. Somewhere you can concentrate and will not be distracted by people and noise.
There should be enough space to spread out all of your material and enough light to help you read and stay awake.

check box

Determine the time of day you are most productive: morning, afternoon or evening. Try not to study during the time of day that you are the most tired.

check box

Take breaks - it is best if you study for 50-minute periods. In between each block of time you should take a 5 - 10 minute break.

check box

Don’t cram the night before the test - it doesn’t work! Cramming involves memorizing the material in a short period of time.
The time pressure will cause you to feel overwhelmed with all the details and during the test you will struggle to hold onto ad recall the information you memorized

check box

The day before the exam should only be used to review the main topics of the course.
