The (Uni)verse

Final  exam season is officially on! Exams always bring a certain amount of stress. For the most part, stress is great and useful. It keeps you alert and focus and can be turned into excitement rather than anxiety. But for many students, too much stress can lead to test anxiety, with varying consequences on exam performance and distress.

In the last episode of this series, we talk about how to recognize test anxiety, how to develop strategies to  prevent it, to mitigate its effect during an exam, and importantly, what to do if things go horribly wrong.
