Exploring the Root Causes of Examination Anxiety: Effective Solutions and Recommendations

Abhinandita Chakraborty

Abstract: Test anxiety or examination anxiety is a common problem that can significantly affect academic performance, leading to procrastination and low self-confidence. Students experiencing elevated levels of anxiety before exams are more prone to achieving satisfactory results, while those with low self-efficacy may doubt their abilities and feel unprepared for the exam. However, there are several effective methods for managing test anxiety and improving self-confidence. Relaxation techniques, cognitive-behavioral interventions, time management, and study skills training can all be helpful in reducing anxiety and improving academic performance. By understanding the impact of test anxiety and taking steps to manage it, students can overcome this obstacle and succeed in their academic endeavors.
