ginagirl Posted May 25, 2015 Share Posted May 25, 2015 My comprehensive exam is in a week and I need to vent/look for some advice. I’m paralyzed with fear and anxiety about this and my studying has screeched to a halt. I started really studying for the exam when finals ended last week, and I had been aiming to study 8 hrs a day until test day. It started out ok, but at this point, a week later, I can hardly study for an hour at a time without feeling like I’m going to have a meltdown. I feel ok about 50% of the material but as far as trying to absorb new information, I’m completely shutting down. The panic is consuming me. How can I stay calm enough to continue to study for the next week and how can I avoid not having a breakdown on exam day? Can anyone relate to me at all? I’m terrified that I will sit down to take the test and won’t remember anything. Please help (As a side note, this exam is en route to my masters degree and is just a 4 hour exam of everything we've learned over the past year. I am in a quantitative field so it is all problem/calculation-based, not essays.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
