Are You Doing Things Differently On Test Days?
Without even realizing it, you may be doing things differently on test days than you have been while studying. Anxiety may have taken over and you may be rushing through your test and just panicking. In some cases, you may fall back to your old habits instead of what you learned for test prep. In other cases, you might forget time management and spend too much time on tough problems. And there could be many other ways how you maybe doing things differently—from not eating a good breakfast to not getting a good night's sleep.
In order to succeed on the test day, you will have to rely on your subconscious mind guiding you—the habits that you have built—because of the spontaneity of the test. You have to response to the spontaneity and the surprises of the test. Plus, given time and performance pressure, you are asking too much for your conscious mind to do. It can't and you then fall into your habits.
