Let`s say good student who has been studying diligently throughout the year. You are ambitious, you know that this exam is very important, you want to pass. There is perhaps even more pressure from parents who want you (ie, the beloved children's) the best. We want to be the best as well and you do not want to disappoint your parents. observed prior to an examination of physical symptoms, such as insomnia, abdominal cramps, diarrhea. You may not be able to eat, or eat too much. You start wondering good enough to pass the exam. The confidence goes down. You start to believe you can not. I imagine all the negative consequences. You will be nervous. Do you feel overwhelmed. You feel it. You start sweating or perhaps headaches. You begin to wonder whether there is sense to review it fails anyway.
At this point, the fact that the course proved that they understood the topic and discuss it with great insight and intelligence will be important. You're so nervous that you start to panic, your mind goes blank, your heart starts beating, fear becomes so overwhelming that he could not breathe. During the exam you through remembers well known facts, figures, names and dates. You can not summon up any of the facts, or that any argument or a coherent discussion.
You may know a rational level that the test is not a death sentence. This is just an assessment of how well recognized that the topic and how good the teacher is already having certain knowledge for you. Did he perform the duty to prepare for the exam, and have no need to fear the consequences if you can not answer all your questions. Even if it is not always possible to repeat the exam. This does not matter if you are suffering from exam phobia.
However, there is some good news for you. Phobias are quite common (nothing to be ashamed of) and highly treatable. It is possible to cure phobia so I encourage you to ask for help.
Imagine what your life would look like without examination phobia.
