Anxiety and Panic [#permalink] New post 23 Aug 2013, 06:06
Hi,
I am able to solve all questions with good accuracy and shorter time when not timed. However, when it is timed, I am panicking and am not able to concentrate on the question. I am hurrying up from within and messing up. Can someone please suggest a remedy for this if similar things have happened to them and how they overcame it? All my efforts are going in vain because of this problem.

Pls help..

Feel your pain. I suffer from exam anxiety. Here are my suggestions below.

Short term speak to your GP. They might be to advise some medical advice.
Deep breathing techniques might be useful. If you get the in the practice now it will hold you in good stead for the exam.
Mindfulness training- develops strategies to help you manage. Might also be worthwhile getting a book the little CBT guide which might help you rewire your thoughts. Ultimately you won't have this issue with timed exams.

Might also need to hold off on the caffeine and ensure you are getting enough sleeps. Helps you cope.
