Under some circumstances, anxiety can be helpful to boost your performance. However, it can also represent a major source of stress which can have a negative impact on the academic achievement of some students. 

There are many causes of test anxiety, such as poor preparation or trying to achieve a perfect grade. If your children are struggling in this area, the following post by The Tutoring Center in Hillsborough could be useful.

This might look obvious, but your children need to prepare for their exams thoroughly. Help them create a schedule and manage their time efficiently several weeks before the exam. Remember that everyone’s attention span is limited, so plan some time for breaks and avoid cramming the night before the test at all costs. 

Rest

The average sleep time for children from 7-12 years old is about 11 hours per day. Make sure that your children are getting enough sleep so they are mentally sharp, especially the day before the exam. 

During the Test

Make sure your children arrive on time and that they have all the school supplies they need to take the exam. They should feel confident about all the hard work they put in during their preparation. Deep breaths are great to relax and allow oxygen into the brain, which can be very helpful if your children go blank.  

Exams are an important part of the learning process and these simple tips can be the starting point to prepare, although further work is needed. A good diet is also important, so don’t forget to read this guide containing some recommended foods for active children.   

If your children are missing the strategies they need to succeed in tests, The Tutoring Center have programs that help students acquire and improve the skills they need, so they can take their next exam with confidence.
