My elder daughter hates exams and cant find a solution to overcome this phobia. Any suggestions?

First of all - Nobody really like those exams, do they? Anyway. I think you should tell your daughter, that exams is nescessary for her to get the job she want. It is simply something, that if she doesn't do - it will affect her life. Badly or really good. I'm not saying you have to scare her and say like "If you don't do your exams good you will get a bad life" .. Just tell her to relax and get them done. Stressing over them (and hating them!) will make it harder - and that's not what she wants, is it?

I have never terrorized my daughter for her laxity in studying, but I do from time-to-time remind her that she needs to pay attention to her studies as well. I believe that responsibility will come with age and that its too harsh to enforce anything on them at this point of time.
