Hi, my dear fellow student lotters, will u feel any nervous when taking any exams? I dont mean that tricky or cheating thing. Some of my classmates tell me they usually feel very nervous when the teachers handing out the exam sheet, and some say that when they come across an easy-do but also easy-forget-how-to-solve question they feel nervous. As for me, the very minute right before I hand out the answer sheet to the teacher is the most nervous cuz majorities are still working on their questions. I hand out the sheet and walk out from the room feeling like a real focus.. which will also make me feel nervous.. but I can figure out the reason... and YOU? U ever had this strange nervous,excited and not-too-happy feelings?

I had one that I couldn't forget. That was when I took my NCLEX. I think the main reason was because I was afraid to fail since it was the most expensive exam I took.

I can imagine how you felt back then. Just curious are you still pursuing your nursing career now? If you are congratulations you are not one of the many that seems like wasted a lot of money because of studying nursing and ending up in a call center because we lack job in the Philippines.

I get nervous every time I take Math exams...:D haha Hmm, I have this tendency of losing all the information I've learned when I take Math exams - I guess this is a very valid reason for getting nervous right? I also get nervous when I have oral exams...:( My hands are shaking and my knees are trembling. I need to struggle to keep myself from falling..:)

I am most nervous when I get the test and then realize that I don't know a majority of the answers and the hours and hours I spend studying were for nothing. I think that I am also nervous when I know I did bad on an exam and have to wait days to find out exactly how bad I did. I tend to go over the questions in my head over and over again wandering if I marked the right answer.

When I took my nursing licensure exam, I don't want to go back taking the exam again so I was so nervous when I took it and also told myself that the exam was so expensive I cant afford failing it.

When we are not prepared well we do get nervous for sure.I was getting nervous many times because of not preparing well and when i see the paper as tough i would also sweat a lot seeing that.But sometimes even after preparing well, some people have this nervous feeling and that might be some phobia which makes one nervous.

I often feel nervous while walking into the classroom for the exam. I am not sure how well I will do. But after the exam starts and I get the paper. I often feel better and concentrate on answering the questions.

When I take the exam I feel a little bit nervous because of wondering if I could answer all the questions on the answer sheet. One thing that I assure myself before taking the exam, I make sure that I already reviewed well before taking it.

i always feel that way everytime im taking an exam.i will feel it before the exam start but once i have the exam paper i won't bother about the feeling anymore.just answer with full of joy and excitement.it is not because i dont know the answer but i truly believe that it is a mixed and combination feelings of being nervous plus excited.

I am really nervous during exam times. Before the exams, I worry about how well I am studying and if I would be able to remember all the information. During the exam, I worry if my answers are the correct ones and if the teacher would be able to read my hand writing. After the exams, I worry about what grades I would get. So yes, exam times equal a lot of worrying for me.

Hi Shiney, never feel nervous while taking exams at any cost because when we feel nervous in exam we will forget all and will not able to perform our best. my experience is that when i was in secondary school i feel very nervous and thinking about what will happen in result of that exam whether i will get through or fail. this is the main reason behind every unsuccessful. than i decided that i will never feel nervous at any time while exam or interview. from that day i am performing my best of my efforts. plz dont be nervous while any type of exam.

I guess the board exam I took last 1999. I review only 3 days and that is mostly discussion type and no computation scheme. My board should have a computation for all test.

I feel very nervous when I have no answers while taking the exam. I am afraid of getting a low grade at the exam. But there was one time, I have no anwers. I cant explain the feeling that I am getting anxious. But then, I decided to cheat. That was a very big mistake that I have done, I was caught. I was clearly out of sync and that doubled the nervousness that I felt.

Well, I feel it's ok because I like to take exams but sometimes I'm still nervous. But i think we should be peaceful to it. If we prepare well, we should get a good score.

I'm usually not that bad with written tests. I remember information really well and I hardly ever study. When I take exams I usually know the answers to all the questions. However, there was one skills exam where we had to demonstrate that we knew how to work a camera (I'm a film student), and even though I knew how to use it the teacher made me really nervous. She said something to the tune of "Fail this test, and FAIL THIS CLASS! FAIL THIS SCHOOL! NEVER SEE THIS KIND OF EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY AGAIN!" I aced it, but I was sweating and shaking the whole time!
