Not quite sure where to post this, but it refers to my a-level exams this year so I thought this would be the place.
I am a very stressed and nervous person, at the beginning of exams I usually have to take 10 minutes to calm down. I've recently had mocks and not done very well - I know the knowledge but in my stressed or worried state I miss things, despite highlighting the key information in the question.
This is something I'm struggling to fix as when doing practice exams I don't have a problem because I'm not worried.
My mum suggested going to the doctor to get permission to go in a separate room to help relieve stress, and maybe allow me to read the questions out - which forces me to calm down and make note of it all. I did my year 10 GCSE's in a separate room due to illness and did well.
I was just wondering if anyone had any advice on this. Is this a good idea? Or will it not make a difference? Does anyone have any advice on how to stop this from happening? (I have tried highlighting and re-reading questions and answers, I just don't register the point in the question, e.g. the format for the answer)
Thanks a lot! Sorry it's so long
