It is estimated that up to 40% of students have test anxiety, which involves having tension, fear, and worry associated with taking a test. People with test anxiety can experience a variety of anxiety related symptoms before, during, and after a test or exam, and it can affect children through adults. Test anxiety is associated with poor test performance, lower academic performance overall, and can even be associated with low self-esteem.


Some strategies to deal with test anxiety include:

1. Prepare EARLY on for the exam.

2. Keep the focus on God.

3. Trust God to help you with the exam.

4. Speak to the teacher or professor well before the exam about any test anxiety to find out about possible resources.

5. Have at least one scripture to read before the exam, quote it during, and even after the exam.




Here's one scripture:

Isaiah 41:10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee;

yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.


Prayer Starter:


Dear Father God,


I have anxiety about my upcoming test, and I need Your help to overcome this anxiety. Lord, I have prepared as best as I could. But I can feel the symptoms increasing. Lord I know that You did not give us the spirit of fear and I give this anxiety to You right now in the mighty name of Jesus. I ask that You take this anxiety from me right now and let me go into this exam and through this exam, knowing that no matter what, You are in control, that You want me to succeed, and You got me. I ask that You open my mind right now and let knowledge flow through my mind as never before. And Lord if I do forget something, please control my anxiety, and give me Your divine peace so that I can remember. Lord, I praise You and thank You for victory over test anxiety.



In Jesus name I pray,


Amen
