coping with worry
If you understand that the way in which you percieve an event has far reaching consequences, the following step is
  1. Investigate how you percieve test-taking and pay special attention to interfering negative ideas. Examples are: "Everybody fails the test: (idea about the test situation), "I can't do it anyway" (idea about yourself) and "If I don't pass the test, I might just as well stop" (idea about the consequences).
    Realise that these are subjective ideas, presumptions and speculations and not facts.
  2. It usually does not help to force yourself to take the opposite positive view of events. It is of great importance to develop a realistic point of view.
Would you like to

  • be informed about tracing interfering thoughts?

  • continue with this line of thought immediately?

    You can return to a line later in the program.
