<p>I have terrible test anxiety.</p>
<p>When I took the PSAT last October for the first time as a sophomore, I couldn't remember my address. Before I got to school to take it, I started crying hysterically and could barely control myself. And it's not just the PSAT. Every time I go to take a test, my teeth start chattering and I begin shivering/shaking, my hands get sweaty as hell, my heart pounds at a ridiculous pace, and I nearly **** myself (excuse my language). I can't think straight...and the fact that the clock is ticking away only makes it worse.
I mean I understand the material. I get it mostly right on the homework and practice, but yet when I go to take the test, I don't get decent grades (math and science). I usually get solid grades on tests in Spanish, but lately my scores have been going down the drain because I feel especially pressured to do well in her class because she decides my fate of going into AP Spanish Language for my senior year (if I made it in, I'd be the only one from my class to take it.)
I didn't get a good PSAT score either, and it makes me feel incredibly dumb. </p>
<p>*** is wrong with me? Anyone know of anything I could do to treat this?</p>
