Go visit your school's counseling center STAT!Any tips on how to get over testing anxiety? I keep getting stupid questions wrong, and they're easy questions. It's getting really frustrating. How can I get over the anxiety that I have? I'm sick of making stupid mistakes.
It's so ridiculous. I feel so frustrated with this. I literally miss the easy questions. I just don't understand how some people don't stress about it.I have the same thing OP. At the end of the day, your first choice is usually right and if you don't know anything that the question asks, literally choose a middle number that's not too high.
Some people treat the MCAT like beast that must be tamed. I find that it helps if you give tests connotations as such or even like like food.
Some people on reddit were referring to their mcat date as: "I'm going to eat 9/9". Was hilarious.
In addition, SDNers should not view seeking help as a loss of face or a sign of weakness.You've said that you have test anxiety and that you are stressing about it, and seem to think that this is at least part of what's causing you to make silly mistakes. Goro is right: go to the counseling center. They will teach you tools and strategies to minimize your anxiety on test day. It sounds dumb, but they are evidence based and effective for many people.
If you want to be a doctor, over the next decade or so you will be taking too many high stakes exams to count. Build the skills you need to do well now, rather than waiting until test anxiety negatively affects your academics/career.
Because i felt prepared when I took the MCAT? You know how they say don't take it until you're ready? That's exactly what I did. Some in test meditation helped too. Kept me on track and focused.HOW DID YOU NOT HAVE ANXIETY WHEN YOU TOOK ORGO AND THE MCAT
