Improve Your Exam Performance By An Average Of 12%
Exam anxiety is a combination of physiological tension, worry, dread and fear of failure that occur before or during exam situations.
It is a physiological condition in which students experience extreme stress, anxiety, and discomfort during and/or before taking an exam. This anxiety creates significant barriers to learning and performance.
Research suggests that high levels of emotional distress have a direct correlation to reduced academic performance and higher overall student drop-out rates. Exam anxiety can have broader consequences, negatively affecting a student’s social, emotional and behavioural development, as well as their feelings about themselves and school.
Highly exam-anxious students score about 12% below their low anxiety peers.
The above claim of 12% improvement is made in research carried out by Hembree, R (1988). “Correlates, Causes, Effects and Treatment of Test Anxiety”. Review of Educational Research. 58 (1)
The benefits are enormous – visualisation techniques to prepare students for the imposing examination environment, walkthroughs where the student experiences calmness and control to develop a familiarity with the examination thereby reducing stress and anxiety on the day.
