Write off test anxiety

A new study suggests that students can “write off” their test anxiety by simply taking 10 minutes before an exam to write down their fears about it.

NBC News cited a study where the students who took the time to write down their anxieties prior to an exam enjoyed a 5 percent increase in test scores. If you have test anxiety, it may be worth trying.
