How can I relax?
basically, my whole life i've been a slow writer, so in preparing for the april SAT, i was always short on time but nothing ever cam out too bad
and so during the test i was writing and i look up about 3/4 of the way through my first body paragraph and see that there's only 7 minutes left....and basically i freaked out like i never have before....i was shaking and couldnt write for a few minutes....i couldn't think clearly, and i do know what the hell i wrote....i ended up calming down with about a minute left but the damage was already done and i ended up with an 8, and reading the essay, had i finished normally i probably would have ended up with an 11....
but then during the AP comp exam i had a similar panic attack in the beginning of the essays but i got over that more quickly and since there is more time it wasn't as damaging....
but basically, i'm looking for any advice on how i can stay calm and not freak out again on the june SAT...i'm very nervous that it will happen again
also, if not anxiety advice, how can i write faster??
thanks in advance
