Anonymous said: I suffer really badly from exam anxiety to the point where I missed two of my first year uni exams in May. My first resit is in 16 days and the thought of it makes me feel physically sick. I haven't been able to even face revising so far because when I do try to start my anxiety levels rocket. I have a job too so that takes away study days which is really unfortunate and now i'm just angry at myself because I feel like I haven't left myself enough time to revise the course. Any advice or tips?

Is your work absolutely necessary? Maybe if your answer is no you can quit and concentrate all your time and strength on studying??? 

I found this post on reducing exams anxiety and this graphic which seems pretty helpful! 

The best thing is trying to calm down doing something you find relaxing, and then go step by step. Thing that the worst that could happen if you fail is not the worst that could happen. You’re human, you make mistakes. So what? You have plenty of other opportunities. Getting yourself worked up on this will only help to make you miserable, so try to calm down and think every day as you wake up that you can accomplish things. 

Writing down your goals and a schedule is pretty helpful too!!! At least, for me it works. It helps you to reduce anxiety because plans have that wonderful effect in ourselves. So I would advice starting with creating a plan, start step by step, and then working harder and harder everyday! 

And remember that everything will be ok sooner rather than later! 

EDIT: Some followers have suggested seeking professional help, and I think that’s the best option. It seems like a really hard problem, so maybe this really will help you. I’m sorry I forgot to mention that.
