Testing, Testing, 1, 2, 3.... Now Breathe
As we get closer to Regents week (6/13-6/20) we understand that many students may be experiencing test anxiety. Test anxiety may be a physical or mental response stu- dents experience, such as feeling “butterflies” in their stomachs, an instant headache or sweaty palms before or during an exam. Students tend to get anxious but why? Stud- ies have shown that what causes anxiety is lack of preparation, cramming the night before, poor study habits and lack of organization. Test anxiety can also be caused by thinking about past bad test performance on previous exams, lack of taking notes and/ or doing homework. However, there are many ways students can feel better prepared for exams. One way is to attend our BHSWCA Saturday Academy for Regents and Common Core exam preparation. Saturday Academy begins Saturday May 13th and will continue May 20th, June 3rd, and June 10th (there is an additional Saturday June 17th for students siting for Chemistry Regents only). Parents see below for other ways you can help your child feel prepared for exams!
