Hattie Colegrove, Reporter

During testing season many people can become stressed, tired, and anxious. There are many ways to succeed when testing while keeping your sanity. Some tips for success would include:

  • Go to sleep a little earlier than normal
  • Eat a healthy breakfast
  • Drink at least three to five bottles of water daily
  • Keep up with self hygiene
  • Do an activity you enjoy such as reading, listening to music, drawing, etc.

These are just tips for keeping up mentally, while there are also many tips for the day of testing!

  • If you do not know the answer to a question, leave it blank and go back
  • Read the directions and each question thoroughly
  • Identify key phrases and words that help you answer questions with ease
  • If it is a multiple choice question, use the elimination process
  • If you feel overwhelmed, take a few deep breaths, close your eyes, and resume your test

Even though testing season can take a toll on everyone, remember to stay level headed and one step in advance.
