One thing I help my test anxiety clients do is get out of the mindset that more studying is required after failing a test. One lesson I learned as an adolescent is that people tend to spend too much time studying material that they already learned and understand. Contrary to popular belief, studying for a test retake should not involve reviewing all of the material covered before the test, whether it’s in a classroom, or in private study sessions. What I teach my clients to do is to focus on the material they are struggling with while prepping for a retake. This will reinforce your pre-existing body of knowledge and you will go into your test with a stronger backbone of knowledge and understanding that will increase your chances of answering the test questions correctly. Reviewing the material you already know should only be done is any small details are forgotten. And you will not forget what you learned earlier before your first attempt at your test. Sometimes less is more.
