Stress Test

By: Patrick Brennan/Business Operations Manager

With test season right around the corner, a lot of students are worrying about how they will perform. There are a few different ways to, if not get rid of, at least lessen the load of the stress of tests and grades.

The main thing you have to do is just study. Knowing that you have the knowledge that you need will definitely take a big weight off your shoulders, and with this, the test won’t seem as intimidating, and you will go at it with a lot more confidence.

Distracting your mind from these issues may also help. I am not saying to completely ignore the studying and the test all together, just take breaks and give yourself time to process everything before you continue.

Do something that you like before continuing. For example, draw, listen to music, or even read a book, but just pace yourself so you don’t burn out and crash. The harder you are on yourself, the more likely you are to not want to study or take the test, and therefore you will start to lose your calmness during the test.

There is nearly an infinite amount of things you can do to help relax, its just finding the correct ratio of relaxation and work to get you where you want to be, and not be broken and lost when you get there. All you have to do is find that perfect balance and keep your mind clear, and you will not have to worry as much. The more you study, the more you know, and you will have the proper tools to get that A. Keep the goal in mind, but don’t rush to it — you have time.
