Test Anxiety........Harms Performance
Harnessing difficult material for any standardized test can be difficult by itself. Anxiety interferes with concentration, focus and retention. There are many tools that can minimize or even eliminate performance anxiety. Managing anxiety is a skill to be learned, not magic. Learning to let go of fear, pressure, perfection are important aspects of breaking free of fear. When there is a great deal riding on a score to get into business school, medical or law school or even college, many people simply lock up. Scores go down and more anxiety sets in and performance suffers. Learning to be present, mindful, positive, confident and calm contribute to better performance and higher scores. Keeping your life in balance helps achieve better life balance and greater satisfaction with managing the sacrifices necessary when you chose to advance yourself. Follow some the tips from this blog.
