Is there anything as bad as exam anxiety?

    Eh, don't sweat it too much. It counts, but not as much as you think. From what I've seen, the real world doesn't give a rat's @$$ about grades after college. I'm not saying don't study, but it's not the end of the world if you get B's.

    But I do feel your pain - going through my last undergrad finals forever, I could skip them all and it would be fine but I'm still anxious. Good luck.

    Wow, if you think a little test anxiety is bad, or public speaking is bad, jesus, just wait.

    Anxiety does not have any sort of positive side effects so I never had any, still don't, I love speaking to groups, small and large, never get nervous at all, no big deal.

    Tests? Yeah, same thing. Talk of anxiety is such an American sissy thing. This is why first world people take all these silly mind altering drugs and you never see people who worry about their next meal taking Zoloft, wonder why....

    I Know its easier said than done but you shouldnt let things that wont kill you ruin your life like that.

    When I used to have anxiety about public speaking or tests or something else I would just tell myself, tomorrow this will have already been in the past
