Hmm..this happened to me as well.. The things I do is taking a deep breath..and tell myself:"the questions must be very easy, don't worry!" Haha, in the end, I'm not that pressure and I get very good result, I get 4flats! But, that was my last semester, I'm happy to get it too!

The best advice I could give you is to follow a simple process. Make sure you get to your class early enough to give yourself some prep time. Find your seat, and sit down, get out your pen/pencil or what ever you need. Then close your eyes, put a positive mental picture in your head, take some deep cleansing breaths and perhaps stretch. Tell yourself you are prepared for the exam. Put positive relaxing images in your mind. Open your eyes and ace the test!

I understand that last minute pressure can ruin the entire near-win battle,but you should always think specially at the time when exam starts...that you have already put your best efforts to reach here...and those efforts will always be there with you...and believe in yourself...best of luck for your further exams...
