Ahhhh!I took all the advice begosh gave me...the same they told you. I also prayed...A LOT! I arrived 30 minutes early and sat in my car and prayed too.
Prayer does work. I passed my first try 2 days ago.
You got this!!

Do something just for you...even if its just laying around in your PJs all day. You need to rest & your brain needs to rest.So, its 4:30am in the morning, and im having my insomnia attacks due to anxiety and cramming. 6 days! Oh my geeeee! I feel like I'm gonna pass out. Ughhh

- 0Quote from julz68Thank you Juls! I really do need a prayer!After I took my exam I ended up sleeping for 18 hrs straight! That's how exhausted I was! All the stress, anxiety and sleepless nights caught up to me. Trying to relax before your exam is easier said than done, I know. But just try...
I'll send a prayer for you

Although a little anxiety is always good and can help focus you.. too much is obviously not good. When you're waiting in the waiting room, take deep breaths and think positive. Tell yourself you can do it!! There were other people my age while I was waiting to be checked in.. and it was nice to take to them. Helped ease the nerves.. and helped me realize that I wasn't the only one that was freaking out. During the test, take deep breaths every once and awhile, especially when you start to feel overwhelmed. This definitely helped calm me down, and brought my focus back to the test. Also, take the "unscheduled" breaks if you need to!! Good luck!! You can do this!!
