I am 5 months into Nursing school
, taking Fundamentals. So far, I have been passing with a C. A bit of background, I was one of those students who did not need to study and I would still receive A's. Fast forward- from my very first exam I quickly noticed Nursing school would require much more, therefore I studied and read a lot.
My dilemma right now is, I have about 4 more weeks to complete this semester and Med Surg will begin in May. I Just failed one of my exams by 2 points, therefore I only have 2 more exams to increase my grade and those exams will be on Fluids and Electrolytes (which I'm told is very difficult). I am not sure what is wrong with me or if it's just extreme test anxiety. I know the information, but for some strange reason that I cannot comprehend I'm getting C's or failing. I find that while sitting the exam, I sometimes choose the right answer and then erase it. Also, as soon as the time is up, all the wrong answers I chose comes rushing to my brain. Finally, when I review the exam, it's as though I did not read the exam, because there is no way I would choose some of the answers I did. Ps- This is only happening on my lecture exams
If anyone has any tips on how they prepare for an exam/ tips on how to deal with test anxiety, please share.
