Most students dread exam days especially teens, but this does not have to be the case as there are ways to eliminate these fears and anxieties. It is very normal to feel that way and everybody goes through the same thing. Remember that even your parents had to go through that same feelings to get to where they are today.
The secret however is that, some people take measures to help them develop and create the right mood before they settle to write their exams. Let us learn the secrets of such people who seem to have full control over their emotions, mood and have total confidence on such days.

These are a few of the things they do that you want to practice too:
1. Make sure you have a good night's sleep the previous night before the exam day.
2. Try not to study late into the night as this will confuse your short-term memory and leave you
feeling blank the next morning.
3. Having an early night's sleep will ensure you wake up early feeling rejuvenated.
4. Be optimistic and awake with a cheerful smile on your face, it does not matter whether you have
finished revising or not. Remember this will set your mood for the day.
5. Lay hold of this thought in your mind that you are born a winner and a victor.
6. Command the air around you to be positive and use positive affirmations.
7. Look over your flash cards (shorts notes written on cards), for a quick reminder just before you
settle in for the exam.
8. Calm yourself down by taking in deep breaths through your nose and breathing out through the
mouth. This will help you release tension and send more oxygen to your brain cells.

Practicing these few simple steps will surely get you relaxed, confident and ready to face any exam

            There are two days in every week about which we should not worry.
            Two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
            One of these days is yesterday with its mistakes and cares,
            Its faults and blunders, Its aches and pains.
            Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.
            All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday.
            We cannot undo a single act we performed.
            We cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone.
            The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow.
            With its possible adversities, Its burdens,
            Its large promise and poor performance.
            Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.
            Tomorrow's Sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds,
            but it will rise.
            Until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.
            This just leaves only one day . . . Today.
            Any person can fight the battles of just one day.
            It is only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternity's -
            yesterday and tomorrow that we break down.
            It is not the experience of today that drives people mad.
            It is the remorse or bitterness for something which happened yesterday
            and the dread of what tomorrow may bring.
            Let us therefore live but one day at a time.
