View Full Version : Can't get past the test anxiety!

02-15-2016, 05:40 PM
I have applied for a number of transcription positions but when the test invite comes I absolutely panic. I have suffered with test-anxiety all of my life; (I usually refer to it as performance anxiety). It's a whole psychological thing that I can't get past. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to how I might get past this long enough to take a test? This is really starting to become a huge problem as I desperately need the income. However, it doesn't seem that eating is important enough to me to find a way past this block.

I'm not sure how to handle the test anxiety but most tests are short and offer ample time for completion so I would suggest doing it right away so you have plenty of time to go over it again and again before you submit it. Also, you'll be testing in the comfort of your home with no one breathing down your neck so hopefully that will help! Good luck!!!!

As you take more tests, things may get easier too. Many things do with practice. Try to relax and do your best and don't be too hard on yourself.

Good luck. :)
