Hi rberon! Yes exams makes me nervous when I was still a student. I can't remember the last time I took an exam. but thinking about exams makes me nervous. I failed several school entrance exams although I think it's just ok, I just think that I dont belong to that school. Have Fun!

I will be nervous about taking exam if I am not prepare well or if the result of the exam is very very important for me. Usually I am not a very nervous person, but an over confident person. I always think that I can do well in the exams, but I have not done well many times. Lol. I have seen people who get feared by listening to the word 'exam'.

For some big and important exam, I will become nervous before taking it. While for some small exams, it is OK. I am nervous when I take the GRE exam.

The day I took board exam I was so tensed, I can't hardly eat my breakfast and even take a bite from my snack. I felt very nervous that time. And when I finally finished the exam, I ate a lot! LOL

i'm nervous only when i know i haven't studied enough. It also means that i'm not confident in that unit. And these units normally are those that require lots of theory.

Yes I do get nervous BEFORE taking the exam, but I don't do very much about it. Once I am in the exam centre, I won't be nervous anymore and I would just concentrate on filling in the answers *laughs*.

I only feel nervous when I take quizzes on the major subjects. I'm taking up accountancy, and our campus has seemingly low standards [but in reality they're next to impossible to reach], so I really try to study hard two weeks ahead of quizzes. The day of the quiz itself I feel totally restless. It's worse than American Idol--it's bigger than that. I feel as if I'm giving the biggest among the biggest performances of my life, and it once scared me so much that I started shaking and having nervous breakdowns in the middle of an exam.

It's normal to get nervous when there is an examination. I took also Licensure Exam for Nurses and it made me have sleepless nights too. So What I did is to pray and always deep breathe to relax myself so that the tension I felt inside me wouldn't eat me and make me loose all the things I've reviewed.

earlier when i was a mere kid ,i used to be nervous while sitting for an exam...even my health would start showing the nervousness i felt that time..but now i hardly get nervous...because there comes an stage where you have to act accordingly..no further that kind of preparations needed as were needed when we were at school..

It depends on the subjects. If it's a subject that I am not good at, of course I will feel nervous. On the contrary, it's OK for me to have an exam. I love China

I took the NLE too before, at first I am nervous. But I felt the nervous after the exam and I'm wondering If all of those answers are correct.

I do not feel nervous when taking the exam if I know to myself that I studied hard and I understand my lessons. I am not into high grades. Passing is enough for me but GOD always makes my grade high.. Good luck to your exams.. I am done with it.

When is something important to me then I feel nervous taking the exam, when it´s something not so important I don´t feel nervous at all. I remember not feeling nervous when I took the exam to get into the tecnologic school. It was my mother´s dream, was not that important for me. And I passed in first place.

I think everybody has passed /passing this type of problems. You prepare as you can do but in exam day you became nervous. it is the actual fact. My last exam was in 2008 of railway recruitment. I observed most of peoples whose are preparing for competition exam seriously they became nervous at the exam time and those are not preparing , they are not. I also became nervous at the time of exam.

well i would admit that during most of the exams i used to be nervous before taking the exam.but once i used to get the question paper nervousness would vanish as the mind used to be focussed on answering the paper.the next nervousness would come before the declaration of results.

Hi, the last exam I had to take was for a new drivers license. I was nervous because if I didn't pass I wouldnt be able to drive a car until I passed the exam. Luckily it was on a computer and I could request a different question If I didn't feel comfortable with a question but I think I could only request 3 or 5 different questions.
