Even very good students can sometimes suffer from test anxiety. That’s the name given to poor performance in testing situations that results from the student seeming to mentally freeze up, despite having really studied the subject matter.

It can happen from early elementary years through college, and even in work situations. Most students suffering from severe test anxiety are very aware of it and eager to make it disappear.

A starting point in overcoming test anxiety is accepting that some nervousness is natural. Blame it on our ancestors. In any tension-filled situation – whether it’s a snarling bear at the cave entrance or test questions about polynomials – our blood pressure goes up and other physiological and psychological reactions take place. This is good when the threat is a bear but overkill when it’s just a snarling math problem.
