Exams are this week and Im seriously so anxious and stress for them especially history because I really do not know anything about it not because I don't listen (well sometimes) but I just don't understand a anything and my teacher is not really going to be there to ask questions so I'm really nervous.
I was wondering if anyone has any tips
We remember more than we actually believe. Even if you thought you weren't listening at the time your brain stills picks up some information and you'll remember it. Obviously it won't be as detailed and you might not understand bits and pieces of information.
Exams are very stressful indeed. Even though I don't have to do exams anymore I still have nightmares about taking exams haha. Do you have any notes you have taken? Maybe you can revise them? Do you know the topics you've been learning? You can try to Google the topics and maybe learn that way (which is what I mostly did because our teacher was really bad explaining things)
I'm sorry to hear you are stressed about your exam. I always felt like I didn't do well in history, I found it hard to remember all the different things we learnt, but at the end, I usually did better than I thought I would so I was proud of that.
Like @LeoTheLion said we often remember more than we think we do.
You mentioned you have a learning difficulty, are you getting any support or help with this from your school?
In regards to feeling anxious when reading your notes, are you stressed before reading them? I found I used to cry a LOT if I was stressed and tried to study. (It still happens actually)
Is there anything that you know of that helps relax you? Maybe it might be worth doing something relaxing before you try to study?
What helps you learn things? I learn by doing and visually. Eg if you show me and then I can do it, I'm able to pick it up better as opposed to someone telling me and getting me to do it.
Maybe try watching Love Island or some your make-up before some study? Would that help you do you think?
