Exams and Driving Tests

Do you worry about failing an exam?
Do you get stressed before an exam?
Do you panic during an exam?
Are you anxious days before your exam?
Do you worry about your revision?
Are you scared of letting yourself and others down?

Taking exams is one of the most stressful things you will do in your life. Because of the expectations you, your family, college, university or workplace place on you to achieve, you may suffer anxiety before, during and after you have taken an exam.

You may worry that you haven’t revised enough. You may worry the type of revision you have done is not good enough. In short, you may not feel good enough to pass.

Worse still, the more you stress about exams, the worse the level of performance you will achieve. You become scared of letting yourself down, missing out on a job, university place or career move.

I offer a range of powerful, individually tailored techniques that will:

  • Reduce your exam stress in good time before the actual event
  • Make you more confident
  • Relax you enough to stay calm whilst you are taking your exam
  • Enhance your learning capabilities
  • Improve your revision skills
  • Improve the behaviours and emotions you have concerning exams
  • Improve your exam technique

Don’t let the fear of failure get in the way of your exam results.

Driving tests

For many people, the anticipation of the driving test can be just as bad as the test itself. Thoughts of what might happen, or what might go wrong, just bring anxiety and stress.

This stress builds and builds, and as the time of the test draws ever closer, the anxiety builds to such an extent, that the learner driver feels that all their newly-learned skills will be sure to abandon them, and just at the moment they know they’ll need them the most.

They ‘know’ that they can drive perfectly well at any other time, but feel and sometimes find, that their skills desert them just as soon as the examiner gets in the car!

The stresses and strains that a driving test can bring, can be especially frustrating to the normally competent student.

Issues associated with driving test nerves
All of the following, and more, are very common issues and signs of driving test nerves:

  • Feelings of anxiousness in the time leading up to the test
  • Butterflies in the tummy, feeling sick, and a dry mouth
  • Trembling hands trying to sign the forms
  • A blank mind during the written test
  • Worry over the inability to take the examiner’s instructions correctly
  • The extra pressure of friends and family waiting for your call to see if you’ve passed
  • All your friends stories about how they ‘passed first time!’

 

All these things can bring untold pressure on the student. And of course, if someone does fail a driving test, this can add even more pressure for a future test. and so on, and so on. it’s almost self-perpetuating!

As with exams here are a range of techniques to help with these type of nerves.
I will:

  • Reduce your test stress way before the actual event
  • Make you more confident
  • Relax you so you remain calm whilst you are taking your test
  • Enhance your learning capabilities
  • Improve your memory
  • Improve the behaviours and emotions you have concerning the event
