Hi, I'm in the same situation as you - do not do well under pressure. How did you conquer that?

Posted from my mobile device


At Sunshine I feel your pain brother.

So here's the good news - pressure is conquerable. Somethings that I did to help me out include:

1) Take the practice test somewhere where you normally wouldnt - e.g. library. This helped me out a lot since it replicated a foreign enviornment.
2) Take the test in its entireity. This will help build stamina.
3) In your off time try to medidate and do yoga - might sound crazy but it actually really helps.
4) Remind yourself this is just a test - not the end of your life if you dont get teh score you want.
5) If you rewrite a test - write it at the same test centre at the exact same time. I would avoid super early mornings though - unless you are already a early riser.

Positive reinforcement helps. Keep telling yourself your doing well during the test.

I am sure you can do it too!

Cheers
