Why am I such a bad test taker?
Being a bad test taker begins at an early age due to the fear of failure, combined with general anxiety. There is definitely such a thing as being a bad test taker because having extreme test anxiety can cause lack of preparation due to lack of finances and time, negative attitude, feelings of helplessness and fear.
How do you fix a bad test taker?
1. Practice good study habits like having a comfortable well-lit study area and eliminate distractions like music or television noise. 2. Don't cram for a test the night before; it really won't help since you won't have time to process the information into memory.
