No matter how prepared you are for the exam,
you can't help but feel some anxiety.
You know like the butterflies in your stomach and potentially forgetting everything.
Feeling some anxiety is normal as your body releases adrenaline in times of stress
which actually triggers your "fight-or-flight" response.
So here are some scientific tips to help you beat that exam anxiety.
Exam anxiety is epidemic among students worldwide.
One study found that out of 1300 people questioned
96% say that they've experienced exam anxiety at some point in their lives.
And this is a problem because another study found that
students who were deemed "highly anxious" perform 12% worse on the exam
and to those who were slightly anxious or not anxious at all.
Exam anxiety, like all anxiety, is a spectrum,
meaning that there's all sorts of symptoms in varying levels of feelings.
Some people may just feel their heart beating a little bit
while others are completely debilitated with nausea and vomiting before every exam.
Getting at least 6 hours of sleep is crucial before an exam.
Making sure you're well rested will give you the confidence to face the challenge at hand.
Pulling an all-nighter is a huge no no when it comes to your brain having the ability to succeed.
Mitch, did you see Nikki slaying Miley ... are... you gonna sleep?
I need a solid 6 hours before my exam!
Studies have actually shown that who has a balanced diet up to one week before an exam
actually performed better than those who have a high meat or high protein diet.
I have seriously been studying so much. it's like eat, sleep like Hollison.
Hey, here's your lunch by the way.
Ohhh, thanks!
What's glucose?
In fact, it's best to have a breakfast that's high in fiber and high in carbohydrates
so the energy is released slowly and your brain doesn't crash in the exam.
Losing your energy quickly means losing your concentration
which means you might start to panic when you can't even answer the easy questions.
What's my name?
Oh god what's the date?
Positive self-imagery has been known to boost confidence and lower exam anxiety.
But, it only works if you set yourself realistic goals.
I will get at least an 80% on this exam.
I will not fart during the test.
And I will have a banana for lunch.
Now, we're not telling you to lower your expectations
but it's not mentally healthy to expect a 100% on all of your exams.
So, while feeling confident for an exam is important
it's essential that you keep your feet planted on the ground.
To help destress, trying picture yourself in a happy moment whatever that might be
and then quickly switch to imagining yourself in the exam room.
I'm on a boat with whales around me.
Humpback fin whales!
Hector, even a blue whale.
One comes up to me and lets me pat it.
And he playfully splashes me and winks.
He loves me and I'm one with him.
Also, Glycine, alanine, valine, leucine are all nonpolar assets and this is how you drop them in an exam.
This helps your brain to associate those happy feelings with writing the exam and primes you to be ready.
In addition, before the exam, trying picture quesitons that you already studied the answers to
so that will boost your confidence going in.
Speaking of priming, it's important that you familiarize yourself with the exam room.
If the exam room isn't your classroom, make sure you take a short field trip there few days before.
This will also ensure you aren't late.
By seeing the setting beforehand, it will help your brain be at ease during the exam
Help you feel more confident and perform better.

There's always that one Debbie Downer on the group that kind of lower your self-confidence.
This combine with your past experience on the exams which might not have always been good,
can low your self-confidence moving into the exam.
A helpful trick is to write down these insecurities on a piece of paper,
and then right below them write down a rebuttal which makes you feel confident,
then crumpled that paper and throw it away.
People say I have a bad memory,
but I have never forgotten somebody's birthday.
This can help you build confidence before a test.
And these symbolic gestures are actually effective.
One study found that anxious students who wrote down their worries before a test
did better than those who didn't.
Hopefully these scientific tips will help you go into your exam
with confidence and feel like much less anxious.
